A year ago, when this all started, I laughed along with the rest of you thinking “of course Trump is running for President, classic.” And then he kept on creeping his way up to being more and more popular for “saying things everyone is thinking” which, was and still is insulting as fuck to me. If the day comes where I agree with anything that comes out of his vile mouth, shoot me.
When he won the Republican candidate, I realized that Americans were really taking this fool seriously despite everything.
Watching the debates, I thought to myself, “Hillary has this in the fucking bag” because I didn’t think actual live human beings would sit through them and think he was definitely the best possible person to run America.
Early on last night, while watching the election, I thought “Trump is going to win.” Then I banished those thoughts because there’s no way actual live human beings will allow this to happen.
I could not stay up for the entirety of the election. I woke up to a bunch of texts from my American friend screaming into my phone with how upset she was. I got up, checked twitter, checked Facebook, checked CNN. I needed three confirmations to actually believe that real live human beings allowed this to happen.
The optimist inside me has been squashed to shit. I keep trying, trying so hard, to tell myself “maybe Trump will do some good, maybe things will be okay” and then I remember all the promises he has for the country and my optimism is officially gone.
I cannot believe you people elected Donald. Fucking. Trump. There are hardly any words.
You went from having your first African American President to someone who was endorsed by the KKK and is being praised by them in the news this morning.
I am so sad for you.
I am so embarrassed for you.
I am so fucking angry for you.
I am so fucking angry at you.
