This is NOT A NORMAL president-elect.
It is NOT NORMAL for a presidential candidate to send a family member on his behalf anywhere, much less to strategize with Russia. A normal president would use diplomatic channels after being elected and sworn in.

It is NOT NORMAL for a president elect to visit a foreign country (with yet another family member) and announce a business venture there three days later. A normal president would understand that business dealings while in office are corruption and avoid even the suspicion of a conflict of interest.

It is NOT NORMAL for a president’s philanthropy to use its tax-free donations for personal use. A normal president would honor the charity’s purpose and use donations for their stated purpose.

It is NOT NORMAL for a president-elect to literally threaten a business for having a difference of viewpoint. A normal president doesn’t resort to intimidation to silence critics. A normal president values economic growth and free speech.

It is NOT NORMAL for a president-elect to choose a cabinet so out of touch with the will and values of the majority of Americans. A normal president would choose cabinet members who can build consensus, are free of conflicts of interest, and work for the good of all Americans.

Keep reminding yourself this presidency and its cabinet are NOT NORMAL. Complacency and confusion may grow over time, so keep connecting with people who can remind you this is NOT NORMAL.
