I’m not in the habit of sharing my politics, but if we want our country to survive, something has to change.
Even though I was a Bernie supporter in 2016, I wasn’t upset when Trump won the election. After Hillary hijacked the Democratic nomination it became clear both parties were corrupt, and don’t represent we the people. It was clear the voters realized neither party had the people’s confidence.
After the election I sincerely hoped Trump would rise to the occasion. Instead he seemed to intentionally give the media plenty of ammunition. And no one was willing to give him a chance. After all, the only reason he got elected was because the Russians meddled, whatever that meant. Or did they? Soon I could no longer watch late night TV. Sure, Letterman and Carson use to poke fun at previous presidents, but it wasn’t this vicious, mean-spirited stuff. I can’t think of anyone who’s ever had this type of hatred directed at them. Not even Nixon. Everything Trump does is wrong, according to the media and the Democrats.
When friends complain about Trump, I’d ask if they listened to the speech he gave. Well no, I hate him so much I can’t listen to him, they say. But let me tell you, there’s a huge difference to what he says, and what the media says he says. Just listen to a press conference. They don’t even attempt to hide their bias.
And you know what? He is a jerk, and he’s crude, and he’s an arrogant narcissist. And he uses Twitter for what purpose I’m not quite sure. But he’s our president. And the Democrats and the media would see the country destroyed, rather than have him get re-elected. And folks we have six more crucial months with him as our president. He’s in charge. It’s on him whether we recover from our current situation.
He said he’d drain the swamp. I don’t think the swamp dwellers intend to let that happen, and they are desperate to do anything and everything to make Trump look bad, even if it destroys our country.
This week after Trump visited the Episcopal church and a Catholic shrine, I can no longer stay quiet. Not about turning them into a photo op, but that the clergy would presume to know what was in his heart. How do they know? Recently he announced the churches need to reopen after months of being shut down, because our country needs more prayer, and he’s absolutely right. He visits the Episcopal Church burned by rioting, holds a bible, and the the bishop is “outraged.” Yes, I heard there were peaceful protesters that were cleared for the visit. Maybe excessive force used, and maybe it wasn’t. We’ll never know for sure, because the media spins it. And the Archbishop condemns his visit to a catholic shrine? Why? Since when do we know another’s motivation? Is it possible these photo ops have something to do with the executive order he signed on Tuesday, June 2, promoting and defending religious freedoms abroad?
I’m not trying to tell you who to vote for. I’m never going to change your mind. I’m not even trying to defend Trump. I’m just so sick of gaslighting and political spinning. I’m suggesting for the next six months we use the energy put into hating the man in the White House and put it instead into prayer for our country and it’s leaders, and whoever will be the president for the four years after that.
For the next six months. Our country depends on it. More prayer. Less hate. I, for one, am hoping for the best.
