UNOFFICIAL: Days of Trump is my daily blog chronicling the Trump Administration. It grew out of frustration and horror after the 2016 election, but mostly from my own silence. I wondered what I could do, and what writers could do in the face of the rampant racism, sexism, xenophobia, and sheer hatred coming from Trump and his allies. I started posting articles on Facebook, mainly to give myself something to do, to not feel so helpless. And then friends started thanking me privately for helping them navigate the media, and for keeping track of Trump. Like many writers before me, I found that speaking out is the job of a writer. So I speak out.
