A “Shadow Presidency” in a Chaotic World

@ASoulAFire @JaniceOCG @Utrice_Leid continues her inquiry into the curious response of Americans to the presence of the ex-president on the political landscape. She perceives chaos around the world getting worse and wonders if it is a result of humanity being too timid to defend ourselves. Leid includes examples of the chaos, such as Trump running what she sees as a “shadow presidency,” and the recent revelation that more than 200,000 children were sexually abused by French clergy of the Catholic Church, over the past 70 years. As always, she pushes us to consider what is going on in the world and to examine our reactions to it. — LMO
