In Response to Donald Trump support 

 

You voted for a slogan on a hat. You voted for a man who openly mocked disabled people. You voted for a man who brazenly bragged about being able to sexually assault women because he was famous. You voted for a man who has a history of misogyny, even during presidential debates. You voted for a man who once evicted a mentally disabled veteran because he had a therapy dog. You voted for a man who has discriminated against employees and tenants based on race. You voted for a man who refused to decry his endorsement from the KKK, the alt-right, and other domestic terrorist groups (face it - any "decrying" he did was disingenuous). You voted for a man who talked about his penis during a presidential debate. You voted for a man who publicly insults people on Twitter like a 15-year-old. You voted for a man who led a fallacious movement claiming that Obama "wasn't American" and "was a Muslim," solely because he was black and had a "Muslim-looking name" (you don't think that's the reason, but it is). You voted for a man whose only prerequisites for even running in the first place were that he was rich, white and a man. You can deny that all you want, but that's fact. You voted for a man who clearly had no idea what he was doing because you chose to believe rumors about a woman. You should be ashamed of yourselves. 

 

No, I will not "give him a chance." You handed the keys to the plane to a guy who has only ever driven a car. And now we're all screwed. So thanks for that.
