Dear Trump Supporters

I’m really trying not to talk about politics. I haven’t wanted to talk about politics for months now, but I’ve had to put my foot down even with my nearest & dearest.

However, this needs sharing. It conveys my fears & worries, but with grace & delicacy.

Now, no more political talk from me for a bit. I need to get my bearings in this new world.


You did this.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully forced this country to take a giant step backward.

You’ve handed one of the most powerful countries in the world over to a man with 0 political experience.

You’ve just elected a president that ran their entire campaign on hatred and insulted millions of people along the way.

Many of the the people that I trusted the most and looked up to in college identified as gay, bisexual, or gender non conforming.

    1. I’m glad I could share this with you. If you haven’t already, if I may, I would recommend going to the original post & telling Rae – the author – how much it meant to you. She deserves all the credit. 🙂
