I'm Seeing Red

Photo: An unwelcome visitor in my life today, about 12 hours before another one. Except this bug, which has an uncanny resemblance to he-who-must-not-be-named, won't last another 4 years. Maybe Trudeau can use it as Trump's icon for Doonesbury.

I guess we don't mind that our leader assaults women, physically and verbally (as women themselves don't, since 53% of voting white women voted for him), doesn't pay his taxes, is biased towards anyone who's not a white male, and mocks the disabled. We're going to get the chaos we apparently want. Strap yourselves in. It's going to be a looooooooooooooong 4 years.

Where's my passport? I think I'll go retire to southern France or Spain. Who's with me?


  1. Comparing the centipede to Trump is an insult to all centipedes. They are at least honest about being scurry, long-legged, venomous creatures.

  2. Indeed, Diane. Really, I'm beyond words. When I look at those things, I feel revulsion and disgust, much like I am now.

  3. I'm SO with you. I felt like someone had died yesterday. I was in a numb, angry, sad daze all day.

    But I'm going to finish grieving and then I'm going to get to work changing things. Though moving to Europe would be excellent.

  4. Thanks for commenting, Alexia. And best of luck with your recent book! (Everyone, go click on her avatar to check it out!)

    Yeah, I was numb and angry, and I'll write a blog sometime soon, when I can think and write about it without vomiting all over my keyboard, about what this election taught us. But let's be frank: While we are railing against the apparent wingnuts in his fanbase, let's also remember that 53% of voting white women voted for him, too. Hillary did not get the female or the minority vote she just assumed she'd get. In fact, lots of Obama supporters did not vote for her. (I'm guessing that most of those did not vote at all.) The bottom line is: If Hillary had won over the female and the minority vote, she would've won in a landslide. That didn't happen, even when those people had the most to lose if she lost. That's the head-scratcher.
