To all the people who let this election break up families and friends, let this sink in. I think the last civil conversations we had occurred just days before November 8, 2016. You were confident Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election; you voted for her with glee. I cast my vote for Donald Trump. Then the unimaginable happened. He won.

And you lost your freaking minds.

I knew you would take the loss hard—and personally—since all of you were super jacked-up to elect the first woman president. But I did not imagine you would become totally deranged, attacking anyone who voted for Trump or supported his presidency as a racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, Nazi-sympathizer.

The weirdness started on social media late on Election Night, as it became clear Hillary was going to lose. A few of you actually admitted that you were cradling your sleeping children, weeping, wondering what to tell your kindergartener the next morning about Trump’s victory. It continued over the next several days. Some of you seriously expressed fear about modern-day concentration camps. You would be dragged from your homes and be executed. Your daughters were future victims; your sons were predators-in-waiting. You threatened to leave Facebook because you could no longer enjoy the family photos or vacation posts from people who were once friends, who became literally “Hitlers” to you on November 8,  because they voted for Donald Trump.

The attacks against us Trump voters were so personal, so vicious and so violent that I did not think it could be sustained. I thought maybe you would regain your sanity after some turkey and eggnog. But you did not. You got worse. I went from sad to angry to where I am today: Amused.

As the whole charade you have been suckered into over the last 18 months starts to fall apart—that Trump would not survive his presidency; he would be betrayed by his own staff, family, and/or political party; he would destroy the Republican Party; he would be declared mentally ill and removed from office; he would be handcuffed and dragged out of the White House; he would be impeached by Robert Mueller for “colluding” with Russia, etcetra, etcetra, etcetra. Let me remind you what complete fools you have made of yourselves; not to mention how you’ve been fooled by the media, the Democratic Party, and your new heroes on the #Never Trump Right.

On November 9, you awoke from a self-induced, eight-year-long political coma to find out that White House press secretaries shade the truth and top presidential advisers run political cover for their boss. You were shocked to discover that presidents exaggerate, even lie on occasion. You became interested for the first time about the travel accommodations, office expenses, and lobbyist pals of administration officials. You started counting how many rounds of golf the president played. You suddenly thought it was fine to mock the first lady now that she wasn’t Michelle Obama. Once you removed your pussy hat after attending the Women’s March, you made fun of Kellyanne Conway’s hair, Sarah Sanders’ weight, Melania Trump’s shoes, Hope Hicks and Ivanka Trump. You helped fuel a rumor started by a bottom-feeding author that U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley was having a affair with President  Trump. You thought it was A-OK that Betsy DeVos was nearly physically assaulted and routinely heckled.

You called Donald Trump’s son Barron a retard.

You glorified a woman who has sex on camera and is a stripper in sleazy bars for a paycheck.  You believed her whore attorney who, at last count, has been on CNN and MSNBC over 100 times. You don’t care that he has lawsuits against him in all 50 states. You don’t care that he owes 6.5 million dollars to the Franchise Tax Board from his employees’ withholding tax or that he owes 10 million to investors in Tully Coffee.  You don’t care that he is going to be disbarred in California.

You have learned all kinds of new things that those of us who didn’t willfully ignore politics for the past eight years already knew. For example, we already knew that illegal immigrants were being deported and families were being separated to the tune of 87,000 children under Obama.

Some of your behavior has been kinda cute. It was endearing to watch you become experts on the Logan Act, the Hatch Act, the Second Amendment, the 25th Amendment, and the Emoluments Clause. You developed a new crush on Mitt Romney after calling him a “sexist” for having “binders full of women.” You longed for a redux of the presidency of George W. Bush, a man you once wanted imprisoned for war crimes, the same for the warmonger John McCain. You embraced people like Right Wing Bill Kristol and David Frum without knowing anything about their histories of shotgunning the Iraq War.

But your newfound admiration for law enforcement really has been a fascinating transformation. Wasn’t it just last fall that I saw you loudly supporting professional athletes who were protesting police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem? Remember how you “fanboyed” a mediocre quarterback for wearing socks that depicted cops as pigs? You called the intelligence agencies morons with their claim of “weapons of mass destruction” in the Gulf War, but now you sound like paid spokesmen for the Fraternal Order of Police. You insist that any legitimate criticism of the misconduct and possible criminality that occurred at the Justice Department and FBI is an “attack on law enforcement.” While you once opposed the Patriot Act because it might have allowed the federal government to spy on terrorists who were using the local library to learn how to make suitcase bombs, you now fully support the unchecked power of a secret court to look into the phone calls, text messages and emails of an American citizen because he volunteered for the Trump campaign for a few months. I volunteered for the Trump Campaign for over a year. Does the FBI have a file on me and did they wiretap my phone? 

Spying on terrorists, before 2002: Bad. Spying on Carter Page and anyone tied to the Trump campaign: Good.

It’s the highest form of patriotism.

But your daily meltdowns about Trump-Russia election collusion have been the most entertaining to observe. After Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel, you were absolutely convinced it would result in Trump’s arrest and/or impeachment. Some of you insisted that Trump wouldn’t last beyond 2017. You quickly swallowed any chum tossed at you by the Trump-hating media on CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and The Washington Post about who was going down next, or who would flip on the president.

For the past year, I have watched you obsess over a rotating cast of characters: Paul Manafort, Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, Carter Page, Reince Priebus, Jeff Sessions, Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, Sam Nunberg, and Hope Hicks are just a few of the people you thought would turn on Trump or hasten his political demise. But when those fantasies didn’t come true, you turned to Michael Avenatti and Stormy Daniels for hope and inspiration. It will always be your low point.

Well, I think it will be. Each time I believe you’ve hit bottom, you come up with a new baseline. Perhaps defending the unprecedented use of federal power to spy on political foes, then lie about it, will be the next nail in your credibility coffin.

The Stock Market hits a record high; you say it’s the result of the Obama administration. The Stock Market drops a thousand points, so now it’s President Trump’s stock market.   You cheer.

Unemployment is at 3.9%. Unemployment is at record lows for Blacks, Hispanics and women. Black home ownership is at an all time high. 3.5 million jobs have been created in 17 months.  Democrat leaders call this “reckless.”

You fear that tariffs will get us into a trade war. Companies are moving back to the United States to employ hundreds of thousands of people. 

Harley Davidson moves part of it’s assembly plant to Taiwan, so you cheer and gloat.  But they are still enlarging their plant in the United States to employ 1,000 new people. 

President Trump says that he is going to meet with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. You say he’s going to get us in a nuclear war. President Trump and Kim sign an agreement for denuclearization. You wish that Kim would have nuked Los Angeles so Trump wouldn’t get credit. 

President Trump calls for the G7 members to pay up what they owe or we are dropping out. You call Trump a bully.  Within days the countries pay 48 billion dollars. 

President Trump visits the Queen of England.  You call Trump rude for walking in front of the Queen. It was the first time a Queen of England has inspected the troops in 75 years.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters called on her supporters to publicly confront and harass members of the Trump administration. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Some on the left would like nothing more than to yank President Trump out of the White House, drag him through the streets of D.C. naked and hang him at the Washington Monument.

The comedy show from the left is not entertaining anymore.
