Amanda Gorman!

National Youth Poet Laureate.

I hope someone will put her wonderful poem to music!

Did the orange asshole fading in the mist even have a poet at his inauguration? Who would want that stain??? I can't imagine.

10. I can't get over it. In five minutes, one fearless articulate young black woman

totally humiliated and defeated the mob of white goons who stormed and ransacked the Capitol only fourteen days earlier. That's power! Trump's stormtroopers have a lot to learn about it.
