I have a friendly challenge for anyone who voted for @realDonaldTrump 

I don’t often get political on the blog, but what’s happening in our country is not good. As a special needs parent, I have grave concerns about where Healthcare is going, as should we all. We have the power to make change, but we have to educate ourselves, put opinions in the back burner and deal with the facts. 

This is totally off topic but I’m frustrated, angry, and frankly scared of where Donald Trump is taking our country. As a special needs parent, I’m terrified of what the future holds for families like mine, as a result of a Trump presidency. 

I’ve very vocal on Twitter and actively share my thoughts on the things that come out of his mouth. It’s shameful that the person representing our country lacks the capacity of even a small child’s ability to know right from wrong. 

My disdain for Donald Trump is based solely on facts, that are provable, this gs that he’s publicly said and done, but doesn’t extend to most of his supporters. Most people vote their conscience, and I respect that. The exception is of course the extremists. 



Having said that, I do think that every single American should have to follow him on Twitter and actually read the often shameful, and untruthful things he’s posting for the world to read. When I say my disdain is based on facts, it’s because facts are facts. They’re indisputable, and yet he’s convinced people to ignore them. 

As Americans, we have the right to vote for whomever we believe to be the right person for the job however, our responsibility doesn’t stop there. 



We need to know what our elected officials are doing and saying. 

If you read the hateful, untrue, and dangerous things that he actually puts in writing, I wonder how many supporters he’d have left. 

Please educate yourself. Trump uses Twitter as his main means of communication and you should be reading his words. If this is who you voted for, you need to see the things he’s saying and doing. These are his words. They are unfiltered, often offensive, and even dangerous. 

He’s a compulsive liar, and that’s fact. It’s provable and has been well documented. Nothing he says can be trusted. 

All politicians lie. I think we all know that, but this is unprecedented. 

Learn the facts about why he’s under investigation, and decide if this is someone you support. 

I don’t care what party you’re tied to, we’re all Americans and what’s happening now concerns all of us. I’m a registered Republican and have been since I became of age to vote. I’m ashamed of the republican party at this point, and can no longer support what they’re doing. 

As a country, we should demand better, from both sides of the aisle. When it comes to the man in the oval office, if after reading the things he’s saying, you still support him, more power to you. At least you know what you’re supporting and while I wholeheartedly disagree, I can respect that.

This is one of his most disgraceful. Read through it and see why. 

For the record, you don’t have to agree with any of this to have my respect. ☺

You’re right, you totally wouldnt be alarmed if people were being killed outside your house. Oh wait, the tweet you highlight is correct and your posts on your past neighbors prove it. The only thing different here is that politicians usually try calm people down so that mass hysteria doesnt ensue. This tweet, while a low blow with a clear attempt to use disasters for political gain, is nothing new in any except that its twitter not the news. People used tv to blame bush for Katrina, Obama for a laundry list of things, and now Trump for a laundry… Read more »

This woman is about to be in a position of power over me. Thankfully, there will be several layers between us. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/16/us/politics/trump-family-wedding-planner-to-head-new-yorks-federal-housing-office.html If I were allowed to on social media, there is a lot more I would say about the situation. Currently pursuing a TESOL certification in case Trump turns this country into a place where I’m not safe. The federal government already came pretty close to ruining my career once by using my Autism as an excuse.

I have heard Trump supporters say he shoots from the hip (or speaks candidly or other phrases like that). I understand that feeling, but it points to a big problem. Politicians have developed a mealy-mouthed (or PC or careful or other phrases like that) way of talking because IT DOESN’T CAUSE RIFTS BETWEEN PEOPLE. If your senator or president says “all Xs are bad” and you are an X, it makes you believe less in the government, makes you doubt elected representatives work for you, and you disengage from the joint goals we all share. Trump’s “call them as they… Read more »
