Maureen Dowd's brother

If you receive or read on Facebook an article by Maureen Down about the Trump victory, before passing it along with that attribution, know that she states in her New York Times opinion piece she is quoting her brother, Kevin Dowd. I don't know if the guy exists or wrote "Election therapy for liberals," or if she's using it as a clever literary device to spice up her column--but the part about Kevin and his relationship to her will probably be deleted from the copy you receive. It just makes too much sense to be her views. It's unlikely that she could keep her job as a liberal columnist saying this:

"The election was a complete repudiation of Barack Obama: his fantasy world of political correctness, the politicization of the Justice Department and the I.R.S., an out-of-control E.P.A., his neutering of the military, his nonsupport of the police and his fixation on things like transgender bathrooms. Since he became president, his party has lost 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 14 governorships." [Kevin Dowd]
