A few words from a “crybaby” . . .

Yes, there have been tears, but not because Hillary “lost the contest”. This isn’t a reality show; this is reality. We cry for the loss of democracy, the attack on human decency, and the denigration of anyone not white, male, and straight. Those tears have morphed into a determination to hold Trump accountable. And if the people who voted for him are honest with themselves, they should be doing the same thing. Your “populist” candidate is showing his true intentions before even taking office, by packing his cabinet with the very people he would  “drain from the swamp”. 

Not much talk about “the wall” or “locking her up” is there? To quote Trump: “That plays great before the election, now we don’t care.”

Remember, you are only a small fraction of this country. You may be loud and offensive, but you still make up less than 25% of the population. Your great leader was beaten by nearly 3 million popular votes. Funny how Trump wanted the Electoral College abolished before the election; now he calls their vote for him a mandate. No, a mandate is when you get a majority of the popular vote.
