President Trump

I can’t believe I am even typing those words. What started out as a joke on a gold elevator will be, in about 15 minutes, our commander and chief.

I am not going into the reasons he is unqualified; there are many. Nor I am going into all the bad things that can happen to our country; there are many.

MANY.

I am just shaking in fear right now, which is exactly what he wants. He wants us to feel intimidated and helpless.

So he can bulldoze over this country for his personal gain, just like he always does.

When George W. Bush was elected, I was worried. He turned into one of the worst presidents we have ever had, but right now – I would take GW back in a heartbeat compared to the hornet’s nest in DC. And it’s not just Trump. It’s also the GOP who has obstructed Obama for eight years and now think they have a free pass.

Guess what? NO.

Since the election, I have had three major panic attacks and every single one has started as I think about my son’s future.

The idea that my 14-year-old is near a draftable age soon, and there is a real threat of war with this president.

War, initiated or caused by the United States of America. This is a real fear we should all have right now.

I have been called all sorts of names on social media, and anyone within Trump’s band of zealots would read this post and laugh at me and call me more. Laugh away.

I’m OK with being scared. I’m OK with being anxious.

Because when it comes to my son and my country, I will stand up for what’s right.

What Trump stands for is NOT RIGHT.

Today I become a lioness.

I will fight for diversity.

I will fight for people of color.

I will fight for LGBTQ.

I will fight for healthcare.

I will fight for our environment.

I will fight for education.

I will fight for women’s rights.

We the people, are ready…
and you work for us now, President Trump.

    Damn straight Aimee! I do think he will be impeached soon due to conflicts of interest. And I would love to be the one to say “I TOLD YOU SO” to all those ridiculous Trump zealots, but that would imply America is failing and I LOVE my country too much for that satisfaction. I believe the good people will unite and stop the hatred.

  3. YES!!!!

    (But just remember, behind him is Pence–so even if he’s gone we will have to continue the fight!)

      It’s going to be a long four years.
