I Elected Donald Trump

("Liberals, You're Not as Smart as You Think")

Are 60 million people racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, climate change denying idiots? No, but they knew or should have known what they were unleashing upon the world that Tuesday night in November of 2016. And that was a monumental error in judgment now playing out in agonizingly slow motion.

God forbid we do anything to turn a four year nightmare into an eight year sentence without the possibility of parole. But what are we permitted to say without deeply offending everyone who is considering voting Republican in November?

You have put us on the defensive with your piece, made us consider that we may be to blame for the mess we see before us. We liberals have driven conservatives away with our haughtiness. We have created Frankenstein. We are the true idiots.

Yes, it is wrong to lump all people in one boat. Like say all Muslims and Mexicans. But am I allowed to ask what you find so attractive in this President, in a man who is an insult to the office and to this nation? Or do I sound too aggressive in my tone, too demeaning in my inquiry?

Tell me what I must do to turn your heart and head around. I know Mitt Romney's 47 per cent remark was matched by Hillary Clinton's deplorables comment. That for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. 

Please help me get it right. Tell me what to say. You see I am not as smart as I think I am.

The comment section on line was particularly good. Most spoke of the generalizations. My favorite was the writer who said, "if you substitute liberal for conservative and vice versa, it would read the same." PB

I was and continue to be in full favor of the US moving its Israel embassy to Jerusalem where it belongs. Bill Clinton signed the legislation in 1995 and was realized, today, in a stirring ceremony. But, in classic Trump manner, the move was done without preparation, except, there were deliberately no Democrats invited to the new embassy and only a bunch of conservative Republicans. Meanwhile, the Gaza protests, which have resulted in unprecedented attempts to invade Israel, show how the lack of planning and gall can have many unintended results.
