Jill Abramson, former Executive Editor of the New York Times
, explains in The Guardian
It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America.
Note: Surfing Obama Doll may not be the precise doll carried by Ms. Abramson.
She may actually carry the Obama Bobblehead Ukulele Doll
Or the graying Post-Presidency Obama Action Figure
Howell Raines carries a Trump Voodoo Doll with pins stuck in it.
