About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

I could have scrolled Twitter all day long yesterday

Just a few of my favorites:

Biden in 1986.

Contrast with 2014:

March for Science.

The Descent of Trump.

The results of our national election may tell a story of division. Ballot measures tell a different tale.

Aaron Lewis: "I love that Donald Trump is being evicted by Black people."

Bryan Behar: "Can you imagine being so bad at your job that they ring church bells in another country when you’re done?"

Kurt "Mask Up, Vote Early" Eichenwald: It is quite fitting that the Rudy and Trumps other freakazoids  had their last big performance in a parking lot between a dildo shop and a crematorium. Because then they can all fuck off and die without needing to travel.

Elizabeth Spiers: "We already empathize with Trump supporters on policy. We want them all to have healthcare, to make a living wage, to have a fair and equal justice system. We don't have to empathize with them because they voted against those things and lost. ... Everyone I know who was upset about Trump winning was upset because we knew he'd hurt a lot of people. The Trump supporters I know who are upset are mostly upset because he can't hurt the right people anymore. It's not the same impulse."

Thank you Australia:
