At some point, it is going to become necessary to think about the policies and actions of Donald Trump in terms other than the opportunity their announcement provides to express bitterness that Hillary Clinton was unpopular among left-wingers. If, for example, your reaction to the proposal to bring back torture is, first and foremost, a sarcastic “But her emails,” you have lost the fucking point.
I understand that Clinton’s most devoted online supporters are a few months behind some of us in the grieving process, but it’s time for political writing to be about politics and policy again. You’re not going to resist Trump by indulging yourself this way. You’re not even going to sooth your feelings.
