    Let the record show that I did not consent to this.

    Let it show that I did not vote for this man, that he did not represent me, that I did not believe he was deserving of being here, that I grieved his ascension.

    Let History record my objection to him, to the ways he humiliated women and vilified Muslims and threatened protestors and disregarded people of color.

    Let it record my repulsion at his tremendous cruelty, his lack of compassion, his contempt for dissension, his absence of simple decency.

    Let witnesses mark down my disgust at the way he boasted of infidelity, at how he ridiculed a disabled reporter, at the way he attacked female opponents for their appearance, at the way he marginalized immigrants.

    Let it be remembered that I did not look the other way when women accused him of assault, when the reality of his Russian alliances came to light, when he refused to share his tax records—though large portions of the American media and its people chose to.

    Let it be remembered that I did not buy into the fear that he perpetuated of those with brown skin or hijabs or foreign birthplaces.

    Let the record show that I looked on with disbelief as he spent countless early morning and middle-of-the-night hours following the election on social media, broadcasting a steady stream of petulant, insecure, incoherent messages instead of preparing to do a job he was ill-equipped for and seemingly not all that interested in.

    Let the record show that I watched him assemble a Cabinet of billionaires and bigots, of people woefully unqualified to steward our children, our safety, our healthcare, our financial stability—and that I was horrified by it all.

    Let it be remembered that my faith would not allow me to fall in line behind this man while so many professed religious people did; that I saw nothing resembling Jesus in him, and that to declare him Christian would have been to toss aside everything I grew up believing faith in Christ manifested in a life.

    Let History record my grieving at the racism and bigotry and homophobia that characterized his campaign, marked his supporters, and is evident in his assembling Administration.

    Let it be known that I was one of the more than 65 million people who voted for Hillary Clinton; who understood that though flawed, she was an intelligent, experienced, passionate public servant with the temperament, commitment, and qualifications to lead and lead well.

    Let the record show that I greatly lamented the day of his inauguration, and that I promised to join together with other good people to loudly resist and oppose every unscrupulous, dangerous, unjust and dishonest act this new Administration engages in.

    History has been littered with horrible people who did terrible things with power, because too many good people remained silent. And since my fear is that we are surely entering one of those periods in our story, I wanted to make sure that I was recorded for posterity:

    I do not believe this man is normal.

    I do not believe he is emotionally stable.

    I do not believe he cares about the full, beautiful diversity of America.

    I do not believe he respects women.

    I do not believe he is pro-life other than his own.

    I do not believe the sick and the poor and the hurting matter to him in the slightest.

    I do not believe he is a man of faith or integrity or nobility.

    I do not believe his concern is for anything outside his reflection in the mirror.

    I believe he is a danger to our children.

    I believe he is a threat to our safety.

    I believe he is careless with our people.

    I believe he is reckless with his power.

    I believe America will be less secure, less diverse, less compassionate, and less decent under his leadership.

    And if I prove to be wrong, it will be one of the most joyful errors of my life. I will own these words and if necessary, willingly and gladly admit my misjudgment because it will mean that America is a better and stronger nation, and the world a more peaceful place.

    But right now I don’t see that happening.

    Right now I am worried for my country, concerned for our planet, scared for the future of my children, and greatly saddened that 62 million Americans seem okay with all of this.

    Let the record show that I was not okay with it.

    Not at all.

    Donald Trump's Inauguration Speech Borrows Line from Batman Villain Bane

    Win McNamee/Getty Images; Warner Bros./Photofest

    The President is taking power from D.C. and giving it to the people.
    A small part of President Donald Trump's inaugural address may have sounded familiar to those who remember 2012's The Dark Knight Rises.
    As a side-by-side comparison by Deadspin's Timothy Burke points out, part of the new President's populist message was similar to what Bane told the people of Gotham after taking control of their city.
    Here's a part of what Trump told the Washington D.C. crowd: "Today's ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people."
    And what Bane said on the steps of Gotham's Blackgate Prison: "We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity. And we give it to you, the people."












    Comedians have been attempting to compare Trump to a villain for weeks, with Mark Hamill recording tweets from Trump in the voice of the Joker — and New York artist R. Sikoryak placing Trump in classic comic book covers.
    Seth Meyers joked in September that people have speculated the many zingers he lobbed at Trump during the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner inspired the future President to seek the office.
    "I thought, 'Oh, that was a good job of zinging that guy.' And then it seems like I gave Bane his origin story," Meyers said.
    Coincidence or fate Meyers referenced Bane?
    Here's the full Bane speech:

    A dear, old friend of mine reminded me that the only good thing about today is that we are one day closer to this asshole being out of office.

    I try so hard to avoid political debate / commentary on social media. Sometimes I fail. Today I have abstained. But I honestly do not know how to respond to family / friends posting shit like "This is a great day for America!" or "Suck it up buttercups! There is a new sheriff in town!"

    I am at a total loss for words. Also, I can't see these people the same way ever again. I'm starting to harbor real dislike that can quickly turn to hate.

    I could only respond to a few people in the days after the election. Truly, there is no talking to most of these people. They are gloating bullies and should be reminded of how they felt eight years ago. I found that approach really didn't work. Nothing does. Although, I was able to shut down one of my ignorant relatives. She was going on and on about how she remembered when everyone respected the office of the president, no matter who won. I reminded her of people accusing President Obama of not being born here, not being a citizen, being a muslim, being a socialist, being a communist, being anti-Israel, demanding his birth certificate, saying he's not my president, insulting his wife, and the list goes on and on. Not a single reply from her. I'm not surprised.

    Donald Trump's Inauguration Speech Borrows Line from Batman Villain Bane
    and Rick Astley

    "We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never, ever let you down. America will start winning again, winning like never before."

    America just got Rick Rolled.
