The number of likes and retweets that stupid “Trump beating up CNN” video had as of this morning. And that was twelve hours ago. Not sure our republic even deserves to survive.

Spent all day (off and on) discussing with one person the nuanced ins and outs of a snafu regarding a comic book and messaging and identity politics and whether “virtue signaling” is a thing, and what constitutes giving platforms to hate speech. Then at dinner someone (another Democrat) went full-on anti-semitic. I stepped up to the plate and said something. It felt gross and it feels like I did it wrong, and the words came out all mushy and mangled. But at least I didn’t go into full paralysis. That’s all I have to say about that.
