…there were way too many people during the election saying “it’s all hype, it’s all talk, it’s all red meat for the base, he won’t actually do these things, there won’t be a wall, there won’t be a ban, you’re making a big deal out of nothing, you’re feeding the fear, you’re taking him literally but not seriously when you have to take him seriously but not literally.”
Wrong, wrong, wrong. It’s generally safe to assume that people mean what they say and say what they mean. So stop looking shocked. If you voted for Trump, you voted for this: travel ban, lost health insurance, Nazis in the NSC, the whole son of a bitch. That’s on you. Forever. If you don’t like it, you better start doing everything you can, every day, right now, to make things right. Because right now, to be a Republican is to assent to this.
And if you were one of those people saying there’s no difference between Trump and Clinton: go on and kill yourself. You’re too fucking stupid to live.
