In the discussion thread: How Long Have You Hated Trump? [View all]

Response to Lunabell (Original post)

9. I merely dismissed him as a charlatan until early 2017 when he made my mom cry.

She called me in tears the morning that the indigenous people at Standing Rock were setting their teepees on fire, and that is when I began to realize he wasn't just going to be an incompetent person who accomplished nothing, but that he might be seriously dangerous. My mother doesn't overreact to things, or cry a lot. She said that was a harbinger of things to come.

Prior to that, I worked as an assistant to an older, wiser person who had met with Trump about a loan he wanted for a doomed and incredibly tasteless "real estate" project in Los Angeles, and to that person, Trump was nothing more than a joke, so I took my cues from him initially.
