Boston Globe, June 2022
Remember when Donald Trump was president, and so many of us began each day dreading the inevitable and horrific developments in the White House ? Well, here we are again—even though Joe Biden is now president and the cruel clown show has left the corner office. June has been an absolute horror. How do we even process this much bad news?
This month of renewal has instead been one of retrograde Supreme Court rulings that undo decades of progress in this country, and of revelations about the attempted coup that make one wonder how on earth this nation can survive the chaos and decay now laid bare. And that was just the latest in a series of shocking revelations about Trump’s role in the attempted coup. More dispiriting: the legions of Republicans still carrying his water in the wake of those revelations. They are already at work shredding Hutchinson’s display of honesty and honor.
