I have had several conversations with friends/family about this and no matter what analogy I try to come up with to explain why this election upset me so much when no other one did I seem to continue to fail in my ability to communicate what my actual issue is to them. Either that or there just won’t be a way for the different sides to understand each other. I suppose they’ve completely failed to communicate to me why they would support him. Just keep saying they agree with what he says and when I ask for clarification (you agree with the things stated above?) they get mad and claim he didn’t mean any of that and it’s all the media twisting things. Except he did say all those things. They can’t tell me what he said that they do agree with and I don’t know if it’s because they aren’t able to admit to me where they actually stand on these things or maybe they aren’t able to admit to themselves. I’m done not taking a side though. I’m not looking the other way and hoping for the best. I’m not forgetting. Not this time.
