Day 1842: The Least

At the least, I should share why I’m writing about “The Least” today.

U.S. President Donald Trump has declared

I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed.

I am the least racist person that you have ever met.

I am the least racist person.

At the very least, I should back up these quotes with some proof, here.

I don’t know who the least racist person is, but at least I know it is not the person who claims to be the least.

Yesterday, I tweeted

He is the least President you have ever interviewed or seen

which received at least seven likes.  The least I could do was quote him (although I left out the least unimportant word).

Going from the least to the most, here are the most quotes I have found about “the least.”

“The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.” — Jane Goodall

“One can rarely achieve greatness on the path of least resistance.” — Wes Fessler

“The path of least resistance makes all rivers, and some men, crooked.” — Napoleon Hill

“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.” —  Oscar Wilde

The least I can say is this: Maybe we should give somebody a mask, so he will tell us the truth.

The least I can do now is share some photos which were at least taken by me.





The least I can do on this blog is squawk about what’s bothering me and share some music — “The Least of These” by Matt Maher.

The least I can do, at this point, is thank all  who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — you.

  1. The least I can do is to say hello, and go 😊……

  2. Most thanks for being frank, Ann.

  3. A gentleman attempting to hoodwink us recently kept repeating: “I am the straightest guy you’ll ever meet”. I responded by saying: “One thing I have learned in life is that anyone who has to keep repeating that probably isn’t”

  4. I don’t understand how Trump, who denied housing to people simply because of their skin color, could call himself “the least racist person”, but there are a lot of things I don’t understand…yet.
    As Eric Miller said to Lenny Bruce in “The Defiant Ones”, “Yet” is just three letters, and Bruce replied that “knish” is just five letters. As friends and partners Miller and Bruce understood that acknowledging racism and bigotry was the least they could do, but it was a start.

  5. I hope that people who voted for Trump and people who voted against him work together to ensure that there is no nuclear war, at the very least. (Speaking as a non-American who lives in the possible flight path of a bomb.) And of course it would be good if they can keep other things on track, too, as best they can. A government is many people, not one.

    Is there a story about the ears on the headband that have been showing up in pics?

    • The least every one can do is prevent nuclear war. The most I can remember about the kitty-ear headband is that Aaron wore it for a Halloween costume when he was a little kid.

  6. I read about a coming needed doctors health check, because some people thought, that he might have dementia. This could, for him, be the right way to leave his job, Ann. At least, they need to check this for the security of all of us.

  7. It’s been a week since I took a vow to stay away from sensationalized social media. No more Trumps, Kardashians, or Oprahs. And I feel great! My blood boils when I see which stories come up first in my news feed. So its the news radio station to and from work, and that’s it. And the least I can do is say I loved this blog!

  8. The least said about Trump the better, the man is a fool

  9. At least I have you to come to to help balance out the leasts and the mosts.

  10. Well, at least I’m LEASTening! (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

  11. BTW, happy National Cheese Day. (I cheddar at how close I came to never having heard of it.)

  12. Bureaucracies are of least concern to me!

  13. Oy vey! Its the least I can say about it all.
