How are you justifying Trump having appointed a racist, antisemite as his White House chief strategist? I am sincerely trying to figure out how anyone can still overlook what’s happening here. Stop normalizing this. It’s not normal. This is wrong on SO MANY levels.
Maybe he’s bluffing. Maybe he suggested Bannon knowing everyone would freak out and then he’ll actually say, “OK! Fine! I won’t appoint Bannon, I’m going to ask Ted Nugent to do it instead.”
Trump supporters keep writing on Facebook, “Don’t worry! Nothing bad is going to happen to you! No one is going to get hurt. He’s not going to do all the things he says he’s going to do! STOP WORRYING.”
In short: No. Fuck that.
Our nation is moving backwards.
My son’s 60-year-old piano teacher said, “Don’t they realize that we worked so hard as women to fight for the rights we have today? The ones they are currently trying to take away? We worked so hard for this! This is heartbreaking to watch.”
There are so many things about this that are heartbreaking. I go from being hopeful and excited to change things, to wanting to crawl into bed and pretend this is all one big nightmare.
I’m trying to make sense of this. But it feels like madness.
Why did you vote for him? What do you think he’s going to do for you?
One person said during one of the many several heated discussions I witnessed, “Stop whining. Let’s see what happens. Let see if the GOP can fix this.” They were referring to the state of the nation.
But, fix what?
What exactly do you think the Trump Administration is going to fix? Are they going to appoint the most conservative judges we’ve ever had to the Supreme Court? Are they going to make abortions illegal? Overturn Roe vs Wade? Deport a bunch of people, breaking up families? Are they going to take away the healthcare SO MANY of my friends and neighbors currently use, the healthcare Toby and I plan to use next year? Are they going to fix our relationship with Russia? (HA HA.) Are they going to destroy the EPA and make it so future generations suffer greatly?
What do you want the GOP to fix exactly?
I’m desperate to understand.
But you know what I’m starting to think? I’m starting to think that there are a growing number of Trump supporters who are starting to feel a little nervous. Because you simply can’t justify this anymore. You can’t normalize this anymore. You can’t have voted for this guy, still claim to not be racist/anti-woman/etc, and then watch it all unfold without some protest. Nope. I think you’re telling all of us not to worry because deep inside, you’re scared shitless. You’re afraid you made a terrible mistake.
