    New York Times:

    A deep fear came to pass for many artists, museums, and cultural organizations nationwide early Thursday morning when President Trump, in his first federal budget plan, proposed eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    President Trump also proposed scrapping the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a key revenue source for PBS and National Public Radio stations, as well as the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

    Worth remembering.

    The people that keep asking to "just give him a chance" are mind boggling, when every single day he does something gross. He is already pretty indefensible as a human being, as it is.

    He truly is indefensible, like the whole "give him a chance" thing is completely dead and never had any merit to begin with.

    God, he's just the absolute worst. Its pretty disgusting, everything terrible thing he's done so far. I don't understand how, even out of desperation, a person could have overlooked his terrible views and bigotry. What were they expecting? He made himself clear as to how awful he was going to be!

    Not sure how Clinton could be portrayed as hawkish and a war monger, promise that you're going to "invest in America", focus within your own borders, etc. and then you follow up with a 50+ billion increase in Military spending.
