Collective AmnesiaPosted Sunday, January 15, 2017, at 6:38 PM
I will say it one more time for those in the back who have not heard yet. Trump is president because he won the most electoral votes. Those 538 votes are so supposed to be representative of the United States electors, yet he lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes. I know you do not care that he lost the popular vote but won the electoral college vote because the fact is; the last two Republicans to become president after a Democratic president both lost the popular vote, so you still defend the electoral college as being a fair process to elect someone. Once a Republican loses the electoral college vote yet wins the popular vote you will change your tune.
However, despite what has happened you are DEMANDING that the majority of Americans that voted for someone other than Trump should get over the election and accept the results. This is where the collective amnesia comes in. You are the exact same people that questioned the legitimacy of President Obama for eight straight years. Not only that you questioned what country he was born in, and what religion he prescribed to. The funny thing is with the whole religion thing, after screaming for eight years that president of the United States was supposed to be Christian you had no qualms about voting for a man who has absolutely no religion above power and greed. From day one of the election in 2008 you were screaming and shouting that President Obama was not a legitimate president, but you want us to ignore your behavior for eight years and demand us to act different than you.
Sure, keep on demanding and screaming that the majority of Americans bend to your will. I am sure as long as you remember the bullying lessons of Trump you will convince the some Americans to agree with you.
It is funny that you deride actors and actresses in Hollywood, because you are either blind to the fact (or oblivious to the fact) that Trump comes from that very same mold. He is an entertainer, he even made appearances in many of those Hollywood films.
It is also funny that you believe that actors "are experts at fooling us into thinking they are someone other than who they are". Without pause you say that politicians are exactly the same because they "run as one thing and nearly always, they govern as something entirely different". You make both of these statements without even stopping to think that you just helped elect a man to the White House that was doing both of these things before he ever ran for President and has not shown any signs of slowing down.
You also go into great length to point out that the DNC has not denied that the leaked emails were real. You are 100% correct. What you fail to mention is that the RNC was also hacked. Yet, they completely deny that they were.
Enjoy your collective amnesia in regards to well, everything. I am sure it will work well for you. What am I talking about, of course it will and has, after all Donald Trump was elected president.
