As much as everybody hated 2016, 2017 surely hasn't been much better. 2017: the year Donald Trump becomes the 45th president of the United States - many so disgusted and embarrassed they not only refuse to call him the president they cant even to say his name, only referring to him only as number forty-five. Why are they embarrassed and disgusted? It's not just because Donald Trump is a bumbling fool who clearly doesn't have what it takes to be the president - but because since he won, his hateful rhetoric has done nothing but intensify the oppression that marginalized people on a daily basis. Before number forty-five even took office hate crimes had spiked in both the United States and Canada.
