Congresswoman Crush Wednesday

So last Thursday was a good day for America. The 116th Congress was sworn in and we took a giant step toward becoming that more perfect union. How? By looking a whole lot more like our entire union. And that meant a lot more women and a lot more people of color. Well, at least on one of the parties (cough, the Democrats, cough). So just a little reminder of the things to give us hope. Sure, our so-called president may go on TV and spout hateful lies unabated. But we know we are fighting for a government that more like all of its people. Because that? That really is the future that liberals want.

Guess who’s back? Back again? Pelosi’s back. Trump better run.

The first openly bisexual Senator Kyrsten Sinema had known homophobe Mike Pence swear her in on a law book while looking this unapologetically chic.

Freshman Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Barbara Lee, Annie Kuster and Jan Schakowsky taking selfies like the bosses they are.

Out lesbian and Native American Representative Sharice Davids is sworn in with her family.

I'm glad to see that even with Trump in the White House there's hope. Unfortunately I can't say the same about Brazil. Our bigot president is where he is cause of the great majority of the country... I'm devastated seeing a beautiful and diverse country destroying itself.
