I heard him say “grab them by the pussy” and I thought – well that is over. We won’t hear from him anymore. Then I saw him stalk Hillary on the stage like the bully predator he is and I thought – well now it is over.

Then I woke up the morning after and Michael told me that he won and I crumpled to the floor. All of the fear that ran through my body. Concern for my friends and family. How did this happen? Didn’t they know he was an empty can rattling – spewing hatred and lies? Gaslighting the country all the way to the White House.

I’ve tried to understand how anyone I knew and loved could even for a minute entertain this clowns bullshit. I have struggled. I heard JOBS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, BENGHAZI, and even a few – HE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS.

Well,  now please allow me to tell you like it is. You voted for a NAZI; maybe you didn’t realize it then. But you damn sure should know it now. If you can continue to support this deranged orange wannabe dictator, then I am done. We share VERY different values. I will hold the memories that I have of our relationship dear, but I am fucking done. Humans are dying because they are not WHITE. Breathe that in for a moment. Humans are dying because they don’t worship the same fictional character. Gnaw on that for a moment. Humans are being killed merely because of the bathroom they use. THE FUCKING BATHROOM.

You may be able to live with that by any measure – but I can not. I will not. I don’t wish you ill; I don’t hate you. But if you can continue to support anything this man says or does – you are doing it without me in your life.

I am not so bold as to believe that I would even make a difference in your decision to stop supporting that disheveled walking adult diaper but I feel better saying it out loud.

Just know if you ever need anything from me – all you are going to get is THOUGHTS & PRAYERS.
