Republicans, I am unconcerned that we have different politics and I don’t think less of you because you vote one way and I vote another. No ... I think less of you because you watched Trump mock a disabled person in front of a crowd and you still supported him. I think less of you because you saw Trump spouting clear racism and backed him. I think less of you because you listened to him advocate for torture and waterboarding and still you thought he should be elected president. I think less of you because you watched him demean women and make vulgar inappropriate remarks to them and about them. It isn’t your politics that I find repulsive. It is your personal willingness to support racism, sexism, and cruelty. You sided with a bully when it mattered and that is something I will never forget. So, no you and I won’t be “coming together” to move forward or whatever. Donald Trump disgusts me and it is the fact that he doesn’t disgust you that will stick with me long after this election.
