The Problem of Trump is Not a Problem of Politics

This Huffpost article states things very well. I haven’t unfriended many of my trump loving friends and family (although there have been a few). Some who post about him actually try to talk substance, as difficult as that may be, and I try to understand those alternate perspectives.

However, this is not about politics. It’s not about policy. It’s about humanity, decency, morality. So, please understand that whenever I see someone I know supports him, I now see you through this lens whenever we interact. Just as I question the decency and humanity of our president-elect, I ask the same questions of all who would support him, regardless of your supposed justification.

For me, the new year marks the beginning of 4 years of great uncertainty in the history of our nation (and the world). So <raises glass> here’s hoping we can get through this next little while without that knucklehead breaking anything before we can right this ship of fools.
