The 2018 midterm election marks a historic victory for women who have ran to rebuke Trump. Mad props to the diverse group of Congresswomen including Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Deb Haaland, Sharice Davids, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Abby Finkenauer, Ayanna Pressley, Veronica Escobar, Sylvia Garcia, Angie Craig, Marsha Blackburn, Jahana Hayes, Young Kim, Kristi Noem, and Janet Mills. For my home state Virginia, Jennifer Wexton unseated an NRA-backed candidate.
Although Democrats took over the House, the Senate is still run by old white Republicans. We still have to put up with the antediluvian Mitch McConnell. I really wish the Democrats took over the Senate as well so that we can make that orangutan in the White House a living hell.
At least we have the women to reign him in. He’s not going to get away with his bullshit anymore. The next two years won’t be great, but they will be better than the previous two.
