I have kept a regular diary beginning in 1996.
Earlier today, I was curious what I wrote after the 2016 presidential election.
I wasn’t wrong.
That’s what I am right now. Devastated. Donald Trump, the world’s biggest conman, has just been elected 45th president of the United States. He is an ignorant, ugly strongman wanna-be who just fooled a majority of Americans into voting for him. He will be a disaster of the worst kind and I am utterly shocked.
I feel like crying, because this country elected a man who ran a campaign fueled by bigotry. He is the worst person I’ve ever written about. A con scum piece of shit, and now he’s president.
How do I talk to the kids about this?
