Distancing Myself


As much as I have wanted to keep up on the ongoings of our new President of the United States, I have had to distance myself. I tried to stay updated on the current state of the White House and my country, but it has been unbelievably exhausting. Every time I get a CNN notification on my phone I can’t help but grimace and wonder, “What did Trump do now?”

It has been a little over a month since Trump’s inauguration and his presidency has been a complete shit show thus far. Before he was elected people seemed to believe that he would surely clean up his act once he was in the Oval Office. No sensible person would continue being so hateful and downright ridiculous, especially after winning, right? They were wrong, obviously. The tweeting on a daily basis, the absurd things that spew from his mouth at every single conference he has, and above all – the prejudice. It’s all still happening. It’s like we’re all watching a staged dramatic reality show, but somehow we’re all actually living in this hell that Trump supporters created for us. This has all manifested out of intense hate, selfishness and greed.

Not to mention the people Trump has elected as his administration. Kellyanne Conway is his COUNSELOR. A woman who said there is such a thing as ALTERNATIVE FACTS. What the hell does that even mean? Facts are FACTS. There is no alternative. She should have been fired immediately after that. And then promoting Ivanka Trump’s brand? Does she not know the rules to her own position? I don’t know why I’m even asking. Clearly Kellyanne Conway and Trump never have any idea what they are talking about. Conway even invented the “Bowling Green Massacre” that NEVER HAPPENED. Trump and Conway are both great bullshitters and it has got them very far in life, I’ll give them that. They speak with confidence and expect people to take their word for it, no fact checking needed if there are alternative facts!

Steve Bannon is on a whole other level. The man was once charged with domestic abuse and his ex-wife has accused him of being anti-semitic. He’s notorious for being abrasive and threatening. He’s held on a pedestal by white nationalists and the KKK. Frankly, he’s a disgusting human being. Yet he’s now Trump’s Chief Strategist. I could literally go on for ages about the disaster that is Trump’s administration, but as I’ve said before… it’s exhausting. It literally hurts my heart when I think about these heinous people and how they are leading our country. How… HOW could this happen? Before I get too carried away, I digress…

I’ve seen many previous Trump supporters take a step back and realize how idiotic this man is, but it’s been a slow agonizing process. I’ve seen it from the start, as have many others, so it’s astonishing to us that so many people either can’t see it or just simply don’t care. After all that he’s said, there’s still people who stand behind him. Here’s just a few quotes that the President of the United States has actually said:

“Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.”

Really? ANY negative polls? Are you sure, Donald? You do not speak for all people. You are not my voice.

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

MEXICO IS NOT GOING TO PAY FOR ANYTHING. How can anyone believe that Mexico would even consider that? Now that Trump is President he has gone on record saying that American taxpayers will front the bill, but Mexico will “reimburse costs”. I call bullshit! How exactly are the taxpayers going to be reimbursed? Is the government going to send all of us a check? Somehow I highly doubt that.

“The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned! What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.?”

He is not a “so-called judge”, he IS a judge. If I have to live with the fact that you are the President of the country I live in, you have to live with the fact that there is a thing called Checks and Balances. Perhaps Trump should read up on it.

“Look forward to seeing final results of VoteStand. Gregg Phillips and crew say at least 3,000,000 votes were illegal. We must do better!”

There is literally no validity to this claim. NONE. Once again he does not care to fact check.

“As you know, I approved two pipelines that were stuck in limbo forever. I don’t even think it was controversial.”

You have got to be kidding. Thousands of people have fought against the Dakota Access Pipeline and he could not care less.

The list goes on and will only get longer. Fortunately it seems the longer this presidency goes on, the more Trump is pissing people off. Even Republicans have begun to speak out against Trump which is a feat in itself.

I felt that I had to explain my absence here, but just know that I am still trying to recover from the ridiculousness of this entire election. Every day there seems to be something new that I have to try to wrap my mind around, but I am here, I am with you. I will continue to fight, as should we all.

Despite all of this taking it’s toll on me, it’s been good to see some humor come out of it. The internet can be a wonderful thing. If you haven’t already, I highly suggest you watch Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer skit that aired on Saturday Night Live. It’s brilliant.

Trump is slowly digging himself a very large grave and I am patiently waiting for the House of Representatives to get their heads out of their asses and impeach this motherfucker.
