Here's a video of Trump on his 'thank you' tour

Shaquille O'Neal is just one American who says we need to give Trump a chance.
"He won fair and square. We have to give him a chance,”said O'Neal.
But if you're one of those who also says we should give Trump a chance, here are a few facts. 

The day after the election he said, "Now it's time for Americans to bind the wounds of division."

He forgot to mention that it was he who caused the divisiveness in the first place.

But kicking off his "Thank You Tour" in Cincinnati the other day, this happened:
"He sneered at the opponents he had vanquished. He disparaged journalists and invited angry chants from the crowd, grinning broadly at calls of “lock her up” and “build the wall.” He ridiculed the government’s leaders as stupid and dishonest failures."
So much for "binding the wounds."

Looking for beauty in the world? Have you checked your back yard lately?

Some photographers travel all over the world in search of the perfect image.

But when retired Miami Herald photographer and Vero Beach resident Joe Rimkus Jr. wants to find the perfect shot, all he does is open his back door and step into what he calls his "water garden."

Joe says that some of the tiny frogs in the photos below are no bigger than a thumbnail.

Here are some photos of Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine posing with things

Now that the election is over, Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine has lots more time on his hands now that he's not appearing on cable news channels telling everyone in America that #ImWithHer.

The mayor is back, hard at work at Job #1: making Miami Beach great again.

Today was a very busy day for Hizonner.

And Levine's personal photographer tagged along with the mayor, getting some great shots of the mayor doing stuff that mayors do.

Enjoy them, Miami Beach paid for this crap with your tax dollars.

a large color photo of a Reuben sandwich.

Mayor Levine and a frozen turkey. Write your own punchline.

This morning, Donald Trump sent out his most frightening tweet, ever

A tweet Donald Trump sent out this morning just may be his most frightening ever.

This from a guy who spent the past year and a half spewing hate speech at every campaign stop, and who used Twitter to insult everyone and everything. 

After Vice president-elect Pence attended the play "Hamilton" last night in New York, a cast member took the time to address him in very respectful terms.

And this was Trump's response on Twitter this morning:

 Here's what Trump calls "harassment":

Via the Washington Post: “You know, we have a guest in the audience this evening,” he said to audience laughter. “And Vice President-elect Pence, I see you walking out, but I hope you will hear us just a few more moments. There’s nothing to boo here, ladies and gentlemen. There’s nothing to boo here. We’re all here sharing a story of love. We have a message for you, sir. We hope that you will hear us out.”

As he pulled a small piece of paper from his pocket, Dixon encouraged people to record and share what he was about to say “because this message needs to be spread far and wide.”

“Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you, and we truly thank you for joining us here at ‘Hamilton: An American Musical.’ We really do,” Dixon said to further applause. “We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us. All of us. Again, we truly thank you truly for seeing this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”

Yes, folks, America will swear in a new Commander in Chief this January who apparently has no understanding of the First Amendment.

At least until someone reminds him what it is.... via Look on the bright side, it only took Donald Trump 9 hours to understand the first amendment

Someone needs to take away David Sanguesa's computer

David Sanguesa

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for a few days, you've no doubt heard of David Sanguesa.

He's the man, who on Wednesday, "was captured on video angrily yelling Trump!' and 'I voted for Trump!' at a barista at a Coral Gables Starbucks when he felt he didn’t get his tall vanilla latte quickly enough because he is white. Then he demanded his money back, calling her trash' and 'garbage.'"

Sanguesa blamed his outburst on the fact that he hadn't taken his meds that day.

But it appears that there are many days when Sanguesa forgets to take his meds. 

A Miami Herald story posted yesterday says that ....
Over the years he’s sent several reporters at the Herald angry emails often directed at Obama, women and Cuban- Americans.

In one email sent this month, he said Obama has caused 95 million people to lose their jobs by “pushing a sick, left wing agenda of not working... living off the government... trying to get rid of Jesus Christ, abortion, homosexuality, lesbians, transgender... Hollywood trash... we are Miami destroyed... by people who hate the USA.”

Four days earlier he had sent an email about the coverage of the death of former Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez in a boating accident. “I hate Cubans.... all pieces of s--- including Jose Fernandez.”

He ended the email: “Viva Fidel Castro!!”

This morning, one Herald reporter posted on Facebook an email he recently received from Sanguesa.
"f**k you N****r shit....I own a Company in Miami for 15 years....what do you do N****r???

write for the Cuban Newspaper....your a worthless piece of sh*t n****r that is poor and a dreamer....I am a graduate of Texas A&M with a Masters and run one of the biggest Architecture firms in Miami you fucking N****r piece of sh*t!!!!
