We’re All in this Together
I’m exhausted and I know so many of you all are, too. I find myself questioning everything. So much fake news and misleading articles you don’t know what to believe anymore. Snopes is our friend. Please check your sources. Don’t be part of the problem.
That doesn’t help the feeling of unrest in our core, but we have to be vigilant. Call bullshit when you see it.
The one thing we can be sure of is our ‘President Elect’ is a twelve-year-old with a twitter account. You may not be able to discern real from faux news all the time but you can be sure his tweets are from him. I’ve read articles about his staff trying to take it away, and they should, but he still uses it like the little punk he is.
I honestly question his ability to read. I know he can read tweets but, does anyone believe he ever read a History book? How many times do you suppose his father made excuses for him when he was in school?
He didn’t believe he would win. I’m convinced of that. I think he was totally shocked and dumbfounded when he dragged his family out on stage at 3am. They all looked like deer in headlights and that’s exactly how most sane people felt, too.
I’ve voted for every president and congressional representative since I was of legal age. Republicans, Democrats, Independents, it never mattered to me about the party. What mattered to me was the character and policies of the candidate.
For me, it’s ridiculous to vote for a party without full consideration for what the candidate is all about. If drumpf was a democrat I would have voted republican or (maybe) independent. Voting party line blindly is absurd, to me. Especially when they show you exactly who they are every time they open their mouth.
Not voting at all is despicable. I still can’t believe after the most contentious political climate in my very long memory almost 50% of the population did.not.vote.! Why should we all be punished for the next four years because of voter apathy in amazing numbers? They should have to go live with him on a desert island and give us our country back!
I’ve lost a few friends this go ‘round. I can’t remain friends with folks who make excuses for his behavior. He’s not a child, even if he acts like one. Don’t tell me, “But, he has a good heart.” BULLSHIT! I’m not sure he even has a heart but, we’re all familiar with his overblown ego.
Someone mentioned the other day how impossible it was to believe he was even nominated after mocking a disabled reporter. He was just getting started with insulting and disrespecting people at that point. Let’s face it, he has no respect for anyone but himself. And, it won’t be long before his supporters discover how true that is.
I found Pantsuit Nation to be a helpful support system, even after the results came in. Over three million people supporting each other during the most shocking and disgusting election results gives us strength to stand together and hold the Republican’s feet to the fire. We simply cannot let our guard down for the next four years.
As much as it nauseates me to have this man/child in the highest office in the land his VP is even more deplorable. Yes, I said it. I feel it, too.
I hope SNL and John Oliver and Samantha Bee and Colbert, et al, keep after them, exposing their lies and hypocrisy. Because, if we don’t stand up for our right to free speech we all lose. Bigly.
Your turn. Go ahead and rant all you want. I’m here for you. We need each other now more than ever.
