...she's "all in," she's already celebrating four more years of Trump followed by eight years of Don Jr.

That's right, the crazy runs that deep, my other sister's heart is broken by all of this, but we have no choice but love her as our sister and hope to hell that something shakes her out of this.

And yes, we have tried "talking to her," and she's stubborn as a mule, and a few seconds in her denials of anything negative about Trump turn into yelling."

The "try talking to them" thing is easy until you actually doing it. Her world view is shaped by Hannity and Carlson. She will not look outside of that bubble. She's in her 70s, which doesn't help. She's been a hardcore "Fox Fan" for AT LEAST the last couple of decades.
