We saw, in real time, a foreign adversary manipulate social media as a tool for propaganda against our democratic process. Worst of all, we allowed ourselves to be lulled to sleep by the belief that our electorate would never elect such an obviously flawed and unqualified con artist like DJT as president. We were wrong then and so now we must persist to resist!
