It’s not me, it’s definitely him
There’s no “both sides” to this thing
Honestly, I don’t give a fuck if that pisses people off either
I didn’t even choose him anyway and he still gets to represent me to the rest of the world
He can barely string a coherent sentence together
He’s ruined one of my favorite Elton John songs for me
Like, I won’t be able to listen to that song and not think about him and the apocalypse he’s promised to bring to the world
HE MAKES EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM UGH
You know who else is embarrassing?
Ya’ll are embarrassing
Dear NYT, WaPo, The AP and basically any other journalistic source,
Stop doing pieces about what his supporters were thinking and feeling
WE ALL KNOW WHAT THEY’RE THINKING BC IT’S CONSTANTLY SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS ALL THE TIME
I could read a thinkpiece from 1930s Germany and it would say the same thing
I could read a thinkpiece from the 50s or 60s in this country and it would say the same thing
Nothing these people say is interesting
How about a story about how the black communities in Charlottesville feel and how they navigate their lives and what they need?
How about speaking to undocumented people about their stories? How they came here, why, what they’ve been through, what they need.
How about promoting the voices of experts in authoritarian regimes, community organizers, and education and peace movements?
How about including indigenous people in the conversations because, I don’t know, this was their country first and for some reason we treat them like shit?
How about that?
Stephen Colbert, James Cordon, Jimmy Fallon
You really give zero fucks
Did you get those laughs? Did they feel good?
At least we’re all used to being embarrassed by straight white men by now, right?
Not to mention dangerous. Normalizing the American equivalent of Goebbels on national television
The moment I think the bar can’t get any lower
I think, at this point, we’ve surpassed all of Dante’s rings of Hell
Who knows where the fuck we are now
Lucifer’s looking down on us thinking his icy cage isn’t so bad after all and musing about what kind of fucked up shit we all did to get here
Now, I’m no authority on Hell by any means
But, are we allowed to make requests down here?
I would like to request a rooming assignment switch so I don’t have to be in the same circle as the dumb-ass politicians who think that giving Trumpcare an even dumber name will be enough to try and trick people into not finding out that the bill is actually Trumpcare because they are evil, vile, embarrassing people
I will pay extra. Thx Satan
Should I be embarrassed that when I now hear the song “Rocket Man”
I fantasize about 45 and Kim Jong Un peeing on each other?
I don’t endorse white supremacy, start pissing matches with dictators with nuclear weapons, assault people, incite violence…
Katie Louchheim is thinking about everyone impacted by the earthquakes in Puerto Rico, Mexico and LA, and to everyone still suffering in the aftermaths of Harvey and Irma.
