Today I walked 2.77 miles on the trail. The fall leaves were beautiful! The weather was just about perfect.
In other news, yesterday the indictments came down for Manafort and Gates and George Papadopoulos plead guilty. I predict Trump will be going down in the near future. Let’s hope!
This is our president. Such a disgrace to our country.
I just can’t even begin to describe how I feel today. When the President of the United States comes out defending white supremacists, the KKK and Nazis, there isn’t much else you can say. He clearly is trying to play to his base. I say keep talking Mr. President. You will talk your way out of a second term (crossing fingers) and possibly out of the White House during your first term. In case you are reading this at a later date, look up the news for his date and you will see what I’m talking about. The man is a true idiot. He is not my President.
On a different note, I did walk today. I had to walk indoors because of the rain we had today. I walked 2.25 miles down the halls and up and down the stairs at my building. On the third floor I saw this and thought it was good in case Trump gets crazier than he is already.
I skipped walking on Saturday to take a day off but I was back at it again this morning. I walked 2.17 miles at the track at American University. It rained a lot yesterday so the track was wet but the weather was beautiful. Here’s a shot from the campus.
On another note, I was sickened yesterday by the death and violence in Charlottesville. We have visited the town many times and my father lives there now. Trump did not denounce the violence by the white supremacists. Instead blamed “many sides” for the violence. These people are a dying breed and Trump should have called them out for what they are, terrorists. This is not the America it should be in 2017. We already fought a war against the Nazis. We shouldn’t be doing it again and not on American soil. I’m disgusted with Trump and his ilk. I stand with #charlottesville
