Response to lark (Reply #55)

63. I feel like my friend is walking wounded.

So, yeah, I am gentle with him. I do not want to fight with him. I don't think he is emotionally sound enough to really get into a good, heated political discussion...close to an argument.

I some times feel like he is holding his life together and had lost so much that he is hanging on to Trump because of his late wife -- who seems to have been the force in the marriage and family. Like he would be lost totally if he questioned her thinking.

Fifty-plus years to be with someone -- 99% of it as a married couple -- that is a hard loss to take. I do think that this is some of why he cannot question Trump. It might feel like taking a part of his late wife out of his life.

BTW: What a sweetheart you are to your friend.
