Exuscitatio (ex-us-ci-ta’-ti-o): Stirring others by one’s own vehement feeling (sometimes by means of a rhetorical question, and often for the sake of exciting anger).
Does anybody out there have a brain? Every day we listen to President Trump, or read his Tweets, hoping for something that instills confidence in his leadership. Instead we get words worthy of a dumpster.
Why is this happening? Is it on purpose? Is it some kind of rude trick? I’m sick of it and want it to stop. The big question is: How do we make it stop? I think we need to wait for the next presidential election, unless impeachment’s a possibility (which it isn’t).
Anyway, in the meantime we should organize under “Stop the Stupid Trump Talk” and see what kind of difference we might make.
Who’s with me? Ivanka? Jared?
