To those of you who are telling us “libtards” to “get over it” or (a little more kindly) to “give him a chance”, I suspect the same things were said about Hitler.
After the first few days of abject terror and sadness, I HAVE tried to make peace with this election result. I have pleaded with my trump supporting friends to give me some good reasons to NOT be afraid. I have gotten ABSOLUTELY NOTHING other than the “holy trinity”: 1) He is NOT Hillary 2) He is against any kind of gun control 3) He says what he means (the most frightening of them all).
So – here is what a “wait and see” attitude has gotten us so far – and he has not even been sworn in yet.
Former Goldman Sachs Partner lined up as head of the Treasury Department…
Betsy DeVos set to be head of the Department of Education. She wants to shift money away from public schools…. she who has neither attended nor sent her children to a public school….
David Patraeus might be in the running for Secretary of State. I guess being CONVICTED of giving classified docs to his lover does not disqualify him for the job. What is trump thinking? Oh…I get it. Womanizers (aka p…y grabbers) tend to stick together. And of course, this was much more forgivable than careless emailing.
He has attacked the first amendment by threatening the press and proposing a law to make flag burning a punishable offense. I get it. Flag burning is horrible. I think all protesters who wish to have their concerns addressed should show respect for our flag. But – freedom of speech is our first amendment right for a reason. In trump world, gun rights apparently “trump” everyone’s freedom to disagree with midnight tweets.
Not much hope that the Obamacare will be replaced with “something terrific” given Tom Price as trump’s pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Isn’t that special?
Still waiting to feel better, but I suspect that sick feeling in my stomach that I wake up with every morning will only get worse.
