I should have held my article from this morning until after today's White House press conference. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders went to places undreamed of my most sentient being over the age of four.
Considering the unconscionable levels of racism, hate and lying that Trump is capable of, the press secretary saying that his fake anti-Muslim tweets yesterday "elevate the conversation" gives new meaning to the phrase, "The sky's the limit."
If I said something wildly untrue like how Trump shot and killed an innocent man 5 years ago out of pure venal spite, then by the standards of the White House press secretary I am elevating the conversation by talking about a greater truth of gun violence in our society.
