Build reassurance and validation into your everyday language.
Have a domestic disagreement? Verify that you understand why the other party is upset, and say as much.
Offering advice or correcting someone's behavior? Tell them it's totally reasonable to be doing what they were doing, and they're not bad people for doing so.
Get told something you said was upsetting? *Put that person first, and let them know their feelings are valid.*
We need to take care of each other.

if your best support comes from Trump you just might be on the wrong side of history
-"but... IF people vote with their wallets and a company has unethical practices, people are free to boycott that company"

Just a side-note from todays news:
Naftali Bennett, #Israel minister for education (yes, you don't believe it) thinks that #Jerusalem is the capital of Israel for 3200 years. That's what he sad on the news. Mr Bennet must educate himself first, before continuing as the minister for education. Just check the image (hint: blue is Israel - source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem#Overview_of_Jerusalem's_historical_periods)

You want proof that something is illegitimate, have Trump endorse it
People often disparage ideas as "just reinventing the wheel".
"The wheel" isn't a concrete thing; it's an abstract concept. Actual physical wheels have specific purposes that are usually exclusive.
Sometimes what's available is a wagon wheel, and what you need is a bicycle wheel. Or just a larger wagon wheel. New implementations are being designed all the time.
That's not "reinventing"; that's re-engineering. There's nothing redundant about it.
...or in other words:
Good morning, Mastodon!
