I have a message in my inbox waiting on a response. It's from a childhood friend. Someone I met while going to church. She voted for Trump. Defended him by mostly attacking HilBil. After the election she wrote to say something to the effect of she looks forward to the next election and more political debates.
At first, I wanted to tell her to go fuck herself. I did not do that. Instead I decided I would wait until the numbness subsided.
I still haven't responded because I don't know what to tell someone that tacitly approves of all of the isms Drumpster brings. What do I say to someone who chose a man who is going to hurt so many people I know and love, and millions more I don't?
I gave myself til the inauguration to come up with the right words.
I haven't dumped any idiot friends who voted Drumpster because I just don't. But fuck me, I hate some of my friends now.
