My Last Donald Trump Post Ever
I made a promise to someone I love who was worrying about my mental health.
I promised someone I love I would stop posting about this president once he lost.
The election, that is.
I’ve never been happier to keep a promise in my life.
This is my last Donald Trump social media/internet/Medium post ever, as promised.
Right now, at the time of this writing, he is golfing. Earlier today, one of his chief cronies, Matt Gaetz, who months ago mocked Covid-19 was diagnosed with it. An hour ago, Trump posted the tweet that leads off this article.
I’m done. I’m so done. I don’t have to repeat my myriad reasons now.
Oh, I’ll still post about politics and most especially social issues here. But Donald John Trump has been permanently evicted from my social media platform. I’ll deal with emotional triggers as they come.
It’s a new day. Time to take on new battles. When Biden gets in, he’ll be held to account as would be anyone.
Olive branches will come in time. 70 million of you voted for a man I‘ve considered the most dangerous elected official in the history of this country.
I can’t forget that. Nor can I forget, or ignore, you represent nearly half the country.
To all of you and all of us … healing is a two-way street.
I’ll look inward; I expect everyone to do the same but sincerely those expectations are slim.
I hope I’m wrong. I don’t believe for a minute you would be so willing do the same if your candidate won.
I think ugliness would have prevailed.
But we have to co-exist, and I’ll be ready in time to do more in this regard as creating an alternate reality and pretending you don’t exist is disingenuous.
In time. For now, you all deal and handle your consternation, while the rest of us reclaim our smiles.
Thank you again to everyone here who has put up with my outrage the last four years.
I’m out. Time to focus on career and try to help others here.
Meantime, please be careful out there. The repercussions won’t be pretty.
But we won, and that’s the first step of a very long journey towards healing …
