Earlier this week, I wrote about how life after Donald Trump’s election to the presidency is like falling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland. Small things blow up and get gigantic and vise versa. And, it continues.
With Friday’s announcement by President Trump to keep refugees from entering the country for 120 days and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations out for three months, chaos occurred at airports throughout the country. By Saturday night, a federal judge had temporarily and partially blocked Trump's order.
What’s next? We just don’t know, but Trump will likely continue his tactics of lying and disinformation, which are routinely used in Russia.

Upsetting Carol Cassara is the way women’s clothing is sized. You can be a 12 in one store and an 8 in another. In general, she says, women’s clothes are smaller than they used to be.
Tom Sightings writes about his Florida vacation, including how sand castles don’t last forever.
I write about the New York Attorney General’s Office intervening in a federal lawsuit against the New York City Board of Elections, which alleges practices used by the board to cancel voter registrations violate federal and state laws. The lawsuit alleges that since 2014 the board improperly purged more than 200,000 voters’ registrations and, as a result, disenfranchised many voters during the 2016 Presidential Primary. I think more examples of voter suppression will be exposed. Too bad no one got to the bottom of this before Trump was inaugurated.
