Well, it has been an extremely stressful and downright WEIRD few months dealing with this election. I have voted many times in my lifetime and never have I EVER seen this much descension and hate amongst voters.
This was not just about "party and morals." This wasn't about "policy." It was about divisiveness, It was about hate. It was about marginalizing minority groups in this country and attempting to make them feel as outcasts in their own country.
It was what this country was REALLY founded on: racism, exclusion, misogyny and straight forward ugliness. I have always tried to allow others to have their opinions and respectfully disagree with them. But I have to admit, I have lost social media friends because of this election.
For me, when a "friend" says "I voted for Trump because he speaks his mind", you are directly saying to me as a Black woman that you agree with the most despicable words and actions this man has ever perpretrated.
How does one "Make America Great Again" by demeaning the disabled, women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, LGBT and any one that is not a White male Christian? No my friend, that is how we make America a disgrace.
A vote for Donald Trump was a vote for not only hate towards minorites and other marginalized groups in this country, but it was a vote for your own demise. Trump has no plans to "drain the swamp." In fact, based on his cabinet choices, he is filling the swamp with monsters that even the biggest alligator would run from.
Tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and corporations, YUGGGGE tax breaks, that of course, the middle class will shoulder is sure to sting Trump voters in the face. Add to that, social security cuts. Medicaid cuts. Welfare cuts for the most neediest Americans. Veterans benefit cuts (remember them)? All things that Trump supporters didn't concern themselves with because "BUILD THE WALL!"
While I would love to gloat in the irony of Trump voter regret, the realization is that we are all in this together. What hurts Trumps supporters is surely to hurt the rest of us ten fold.
Strange that Hillary Clinton was called a liar, a crook, an establishment puppet when all the while, Trump has proven not only is he all of these things, but extremely incapable of running this country due to his blatant lack of political experience (cue him not needing intelligence briefings because he's already smart).
Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe we in America are about to be on the receiving end of a fallen empire, sooner than later. Let's hope that ALL Americans can come together and stop this train wreck before it runs off into the ocean carrying us all to our death.
