In January 2017, crowds gathered on the steps of the Washington Mall to witness a truly historic event: a man with no prior political experience who was universally expected to lose his election was about to be sworn in as President of the United States.
We all remember the reactions. Working class America cheered as the only candidate to pay them any attention — ironically, a billionaire from New York City — stood up to place his hand on the Bible and take the oath of office. Liberal elites living on the coasts jeered, still trying to figure out how their picture-perfect candidate lost despite leading every single major poll.
This is when we got the hilarious image of the individual on the right side of this image. As Donald Trump was proclaimed President, this person threw his neck back and screamed at the sky. It was like this person’s world was falling apart in front of him. In a figurative sense, it really was.
Now, let’s go back to January 2019 — a Catholic high school student attending a Christian school is waiting for his bus to arrive to take him home from the March for Life in Washington DC. Like the unnamed individual previously mentioned, he was also conflicted — by a man walking up and beating a drum in his face. As we all remember, his reaction was a bit different.
We think this image tells the rest of the story — and everything you need to know about politics right now.
