Oh, Elizabeth. Where to begin. I’ll start. You’re hurting the franchise. Read your damn Book. You are not showing “mutual respect, love, compassion, understanding, and integrity” with this post. You are showing quite the opposite. Save your prayers. Women like me would prefer you spend time on the hungry, the homeless, and the vulnerable. We? …

Is isolating the incoming president the answer?
At last count (Jan. 1), no Rockette has volunteered to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan 20, after a bit of a kerfuffle over their being forced to perform. They weren’t.
