Me, my 86 year old mother & I had ........ [View all]

a Penguin celebratory brunch with 3 friends. Our friends are 82, 81 and 80, I'm the youngest at 59. I know all of us are die hard Democrats. But our 80 year old friend has never really spoken politics. She's been widowed a little over a year and was taking care of her husband so I think a lot of her efforts were directed to that.

Today she told us she is totally afraid of Trump, she's waiting to hear sig heil at his rallies (she even gave the Nazi salute), she said he wants nothing but things to be his way & wants to know how stupid are the people who will vote for him.

This woman who is white and has a grandson married to an African-American woman, worries for their children, her great grand kids. The other 2 are a married couple, 2nd marriage for both. The woman's late daughter was gay. She cried when we talked about Orlando.

All of us are angry about Trump's treatment of the media & also the media's deference to Trump.

If these seniors "get" it, why don't more people?
