It’s not all 40 sentences, but, it’s enough that you get the point. Of the scope of this present horror in the White House. Also, while reading, please understand that his base, and the craven Republican politicians have seen ALL of this, and have absolutely NO PROBLEM supporting him. So, don’t even ask for me and folks like me, to try and ‘ reach across the aisle’ to these people. A lot of this was shown before November 2016, so they really have no excuse. He didn’t lie about who he was. It was plain for all to see. Their vote for him in November 2016, displayed THEIR lack of character, not his. And, they will have that stain on them forever. Because, what has been done by this administration through their vote, can never be erased. The children damaged. The migrant and adult children dead through their humanitarian crisis on the border. The heinous immigration enforcement within this country that has destroyed families. The gutting of our environmental protections, as well as the food protections. All of those ramifications are on those who pulled the lever for Dolt45 on the right, and those who were too pure to vote for Hillary on the left. ALL that has happened is on you. Don’t think it will ever be forgotten.
