This is such a bad day. Such a bad day. The US has gone nuts. We cannot believe it over here. What is more worrying than a pompous, volatile, narcissistic, misogynistic, racist nutjob is in the most powerful job in the world…what is more worrying, perhaps, is that:
He has control of both Houses and so he and the Republicans are in the best position for decades for rolling out whatever whacko changes they want.
The Supreme Court, hanging in the balance, will now be tipped heavily towards the conservatives as he gets to nominate and get through his choice.
He and his VP denies climate change. When Pence was in Congress he voted 201 times against environmental interests and just 18 times in favor.
His VP arguably denies evolution, and thus, well, science.
His VP wants to divert healthcare money to gay conversion therapy.
His VP thinks smoking doesn’t kill.
Neither have any sensible grip on world politics,
Trump is not respected by anyone around the world including Putin. Putin doesn’t respect him, but realises he can use him.
Feel free to add to this list of woes and worries. I am just going to crawl into the fetal position and cry for a week. Thanks America. Thanks a lot.
On shy voters:
If you are embarrassed about doing something, chances are you intuitively accept it is morally wrong.
If it is morally wrong, don’t do it.
If Trump got in on shy voters, he got in on people voting for that which they intuitively knew was morally wrong.
