In high school, I used to go sit in the bleachers at Wrigley with Gail, Sandy, Ann, Betty, Lisa, and Bruce. We loved the Cubs, of course, but we LOVED Billy Buck.
Nobody in Boston, where I settled after college, was happier than I was to welcome #BillBuckner to the Red Sox. My admiration never wavered.
The man I married, however, held that ‘86 World Series grudge close to his heart for years.

(1/6) One of the reasons why I have such contempt for the phrase "respect the office of the President" is that, in practice, it means just do everything they want you to do no matter how you feel. SO when the President invites you for a visit, people assume respecting...
(2/6) the office means going even if you don't want to go or don't like the person. That, my friends and enemies, is ridiculous. It's a comical standard. So when someone says "no, I'm good", stuffy folks lose it as the individual doesn't respect the office. Huh?!
(3/6) It is much more disrespectful to everyone involved if you show up to a place you don't want to go because you really don't like or respect the person occupying the place and either quietly take up space or try to remain aloof to the entire process. How is that respectful?

Pour avoir lu sur #Bolsonaro et scruté #Trump, il me semble que la comparaison de l'1 à l'autre "écrase" les singularités du Brésilien:

3) ces #midterms2018, comme toutes les élections partielles depuis 2016, se sont déroulées dans des conditions équitables et transparentes pour l'opposition démocrate à #Trump qui a remporté d'ailleurs de nombreuses partielles. #Bolsonaro n'a pas du tout le même projet
