The Presidency of one Donald J Trump has only been in effect for two days, and the response from people has been a firestorm. From riots and looting and destruction on the day of the Inauguration to the million + people in the Womens March on Washington and its sister marches across the country and the globe. Also equal has been the response by his supporters..from mocking and cruel jokes to threats and general disgust with those opposed to him, it is obvious to me how the next four years are going to be quite a wild ride..so I am going to make my feelings on the matter clear
I do not like Donald J Trump..no I am not calling his presidency a sham, im not complaining about the results of the election and im not seeking a change to the way we elect our President. He won the Electoral College fair and square, lets move onward and forward.
Why I dislike Donald Trump has nothing to do with politics. I did not vote for Hilary Clinton, I instead wrote in Senator Bernie Sanders..I feel like my presidential vote should go to a person with whom I can get behind and believe in and I felt at that time that Mr Trump and Secretary Clinton were not people I could believe in. And if people want to get angry with me that I didnt just “vote for the lesser evil “,claim I wasted my vote or accuse me of being a “entitled liberal who did a protest vote” please…its a free country and I would add that the state I live in went to Mrs.Clinton anyway.
I dislike Mr Trump for his actions, for his words and for his personality. Over the course of the election year I watched everything. I didnt just listen to the words of the “lying liberal media scum” as many conservative people and Mr Trump call them, I listened to the words of the man. He is a mean, misogynistic narcissist. He spent his entire nomination process belittling and making fun of his competitors and debating like a 4th grader. He made fun of a disabled reporter. I cant say if he is a racist for sure but some of the things that came out of his mouth were very insensitive to many different minorities.
I found the tape of his “locker room talk” with Billy Bush to be quite disturbing. As the father to my daughter, i found his words to be not one of “guys being guys” as I am one and ive heard locker room talk..sure there talk of how attractive a woman is, but never the avocation of sexual violence. I know it was from 10 years ago and he says he changed but he is a 70 year old man..how much could he really of changed?
What people should of asked themselves is “if you had a daughter, would you want her to date “…
That being said, I do wish him the best..cause I do live in this country and I plan to for many years to come…you dont hope that the ship sinks while you are still on it!
Our country is more than just a president…Its up to our Congress and our Senate too…The democratic process is alive and well and if in 4 years, Mr Trump has worn out his welcome as President…then vote him out! Democratic party..find a better nominee that isnt embroiled in political scandals!
We will survive these next four years, but people have to be vigilant! The future of this country isnt decided by one man it is decided by the 320 million citizens of this fine country. On and keep protesting if we have an injustice but dont loot and riot and destroy!
