POLITICS Trump Fans Attacked A Columnist For Hoping Trump Fails. His Response Is Perfect

The people chose Hillary Clinton. But itís the electoral vote that counts, not the popular vote, so Donald Trump will be president. And no, Iím not over it.

No one should be over it. No one should pretend that Trump will be a normal president. No one should forget the bigotry and racism of his campaign, the naked appeals to white grievance, the stigmatizing of Mexicans and Muslims. No one should forget the jaw-dropping ignorance he showed about government policy both foreign and domestic. No one should forget the vile misogyny. No one should forget the mendacity, the vulgarity, the ugliness, the insanity. None of this should ever be normalized in our politics.

The big protests that have followed Trumpís election should be no surprise. You canít spend all those months trashing our nationís values and then expect everyone to join you in a group hug. Trump made the bed in which he now must lie

If a normal Republican had been elected, I could say the polite and socially acceptable thing, something like ďI didnít support So-and-So, but he will be my president, too, and I wish him success.Ē But I cannot wish Trump success in rounding up and deporting millions of people or banning Muslims from entering the country or reinstituting torture as an instrument of U.S. policy. In these and other divisive, cruel, unwise initiatives, I wish him failure.

Read the rest of his response at the link. I'd post the whole thing but i'M not sure if i'm allowed

3. Yes, brilliant!

We cannot and will not forget the fact that he is still a serial sexual predator and an avowed racist, a liar and a thief and a con man who is being suedu for fraud and racketeering. We cannot forget that the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazi Party cheered his election and cheered again when he hired Stephen Bannon for his administration. The resistance begins now.

No justice, no peace.

6. Trump made the bed in which he now must lie

Or to put it more crudely though more aptly: He shit the bed, now he has to sleep in it.
