I think I found an example of Trump style "unity and healing"

It's a Good Life by Jerome Bixby. A stoay about a town which is terrorized by a child with way too much power. Sound familiar?

It did no good to wonder where they were ... no good at all. Peaksville was just someplace. Someplace away from the world. It was wherever it had been since that day three years ago when Anthony had crept from her womb and old Doc Bates--God rest him--had screamed and dropped him and tried to kill him, and Anthony had whined and done the thing. He had taken the village someplace. Or had destroyed the world and left only the village, nobody knew which.

It did no good to wonder about it. Nothing at all did any good except to live as they must live. Must always, always live, if Anthony would let them.

...

Next day it snowed, and killed off half the crops--but it was a good day.

So I guess if we just say "But it's a good thing" when Trump insults fellow Americans and his supporters 'joke' about genocide against the groups of Americans they don't like, then we must be doing the "unity and healing" Trump and his supporters want, right?
