Protesters Line The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Route

Protesters lined the streets of Manhattan's Upper West brandishing signs against the hate rhetoric of President elect Donald Trump and in solid support of Democratic candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton as well as environmental and clean water concerns and the Dakota Pipeline.

President elect Donald Trump said, "It is my prayer, that on this Thanksgiving, we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country, strengthened by shared purpose and very, very common resolve."

If the protesters on Manhattan's Upper West Side, Donald Trump's home city, are any indication of the current state of the nation he and his cabinet, family and others, can table the idea of healing as the nation continues to see the margin of victory, in the popular vote, for Hillary Rodham Clinton increase to more than 2% of the registered voters and Mr. Trump's popular vote trail drastically.

The margin of error has been the topic of many pundits, scholars, intellectuals, and laymen who all agree without all the votes counted it is impossible to demand a recall in closely contested states. The same states that remained the hope of the democratic party throughout the evening on November 8, 2016.

Mr. Trump and his self-appointed family members who have taken on spokespersons positions for the Trump-Pence Whitehouse appear to be surprised at the deep division and continued animosity felt across the world. Not simply in the United States as world leaders are backing a recall, backing the system that call for the votes to be recounted, and an investigation into the possibility of illegal tampering or voter fraud.

Asking for healing and declaring themselves a winner has done nothing to heal the nation. The fox hole-campaign religion adopted by the president-elect may have fooled many in the nation, as an angel of light often does.

The Trump family considered the election a business deal and pulled out all the stops to win the nation, to become the business leader of this country and believe that now that they have the nation has no choice to go along with the new world order leadership of the Trump Family.  

Our nation, the United States of America, has a different dish to serve up to the newly elected president and his family this thanksgiving. No matter how you fix a dung patty, lightly toasted, golden brown, served on fine Trump china, even adding a raspberry drizzle, what's being served is still dung. Not a dish being served in my home, in my nation, on this Thanksgiving Day.

Happy Thanksgiving.
