Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread

Let's see who is framing the debate this week, shall we?

It has been a really crappy week. It's been hard to not sink into morose despair on the state of the country when we see dozens of people killed in mass shootings and the best the media can do is have yet another segment on whether Donald Trump is a white nationalist/supremacist/racist. (Easy answer: Yes. Yes, he is. Let's stop debating it now.) So this morning, I want to remind you of things that are fantastic.

Simone Biles is fantastic. I think I might believe someone if they told me she was a superhero, the way she flies across that mat. That double double dismount? Absolutely superhuman.

Little brothers singing to their baby sisters are fantastic.

Whatever this is...is fantastic

Pictures of pets are fantastic

Baths are fantastic

There are beautiful and wondrous things all around us. Small miracles walk among us. There is art and music that can sustain us in dark times. Food and drink that fill our senses and drown out the ugliness. And there's nothing wrong with embracing those things when the onslaught of awfulness gets too much.

So this morning, rather than telling us anything you see on the Sunday shows (because, I promise you, no new conversations will be had under Chuck Todd's watch), share with the community those amazing, fantastic, beautiful things that sustain you right now.
