I saw a black swan in my neighborhood
Okay, it was a metaphorical, rather than literal, black swan. I was walking my two dogs yesterday and a couple I’ve never seen before crossed my path. The man was wearing a “Trump/Pence” t-shirt. This is in Santa Clara, CA. Home of “Silicon Valley”. As politically blue (i.e., liberal) as it gets. In the past three years I’ve seen exactly one red MAGA hat.
The man, not surprisingly, weighed at least 260 lbs and was having difficulty walking. I try not to judge people based on their appearance but it was just so fitting that he looked like the canonical “fuck your feelings” MAGA Trump supporter.
