These aren’t normal times.

Just so we are clear on the kind of thing we’re up against.

Trump chose Scott Pruitt to head the EPA. Scott hates the EPA and has been a vocal opponent of the EPA. Scott doesn’t believe in climate change. Scott is a huge supporter of and in the pockets of the fossil fuel industry.

 
Trump chose Betsy Devos as Secretary of Education. Betsy doesn’t like public schools and has worked to defund them in Michigan. Detroit schools are the lowest performing among big city schools in the country, and over the last 15 years the entire state of Michigan has declined when it comes to student performance, based in part on defunding and the deregulation of charter schools under Betsy.

 
Trump named Pablo Escobar to the post of Drug Czar. Pablo is a Columbian drug overlord who trafficked mainly in cocaine and was responsible for thousands of murders. Also, he’s dead.

 
That last one was fake news. But the first two are real. Be vigilant. These are not normal times.
