Trump saved the US from a coup by this group of people, and it looks like it!
When I first saw this picture, I couldn’t put my finger exactly on what disturbed me about it.
I expected Obama’s staff to be unhappy about the election result of course, so that wasn’t it, but this picture now, tells me a much deeper story. Most presidential staffers, for all the time I have been alive (57 years), have been happy to serve in the White House, viewing it as an honor, even when it’s time to go. These types of group photos are always a smiling, laughing, posing kind of affair, where the seething hostility that is Washington, is momentarily held at bay.
That obviously did not happen here.
What happened here in this photo, is an outward visualization of a sickness that infected the entire Obama administration, a kind of “holier than thou” liberalism that revolved around their god like totem, Barack Obama. These people are not honored to have served, they are furious at the unwashed masses that ejected them from power — they most obviously believe they have a continued right too — something they feel so openly, it’s literally written right on their faces.
Trump’s election, a return of the power to the people, has almost certainly saved this country from a horrible constitutional problem, and maybe even a coup by a bunch of people pictured above — that think exactly of your civil rights — what their expressions say they do.
