ITS THE LAST DAY OF TRUMP IN OFFICE [emoji of Partying; multiple emojis of Partying face]
WE SURVIVED 4 YEARS [emoji of Hourglass]
It's the little moments. That's what I tell myself these days where the world is a mess. So while him being out of office doesn't fix what's wrong with America, Trump leaving office is a small victory to those who are present enough to know he was horrible. So #ByeFelicia

Trump's LAST full day in office!
Ive never before so deeply hoped that an outgoing President and his family would soon be criminally prosecuted. If that Is Wrong, then I Don't Want To Be Right.

Some people believe that our problems are over as of 12:00 noon tomorrow
But then, some people thought America conquered racism when we elected
It’s that we still have a LONG way to go
#ByeFelicia to the Trump Presidency.**

It's almost over ... it's so close ...#ByeFelicia #ByeDon #ByeMelania
You've left a trail of injured people, desecrated ideals, plundered resources, and fractured relationships that cannot be quantified.
But in being as unrepentantly malevolent as you have been, you’ve shown us who we really are.
5hToo many otherwise intelligent people are caught up in the false belief that Trump is the cause of American racism and corruption instead of a product of it. #ByeFelicia

From birtherism to plagiarism.
From nudies to nasty jackets.
From tacky holiday decor to a destroyed Rose Garden.
From be best to be gone.
Last day of Trump's presidency...
Can I get a HELL YEAH?!#ByeFelicia
One more day![multiple drawings of the Flag of United States]
For years your supporters would tell me that they loved you because you “spoke your mind”.
That was never the real story.
The truth is, they loved you because you've spoken their minds.
That is the greatest tragedy of it all.
