Sorry, I Can’t Forgive Stupidity

I was talking to a friend the other day, and he said Donald Trump is doing a “great job”, to which I replied, “In what fictional universe?”  I get it, a lot of people voted for Trump because they hated Hillary Clinton and he was an outsider candidate.  I was extremely disappointed in the election outcome, but he won it fair-and-square (well, at the time I thought it was fair-and-square) and I gave him the benefit of the doubt.  In the last year and a half it has been a total shit-storm; Charlottesville, revolving communication directors, immigration fiascoes, foreign relations nightmares, trade wars.  If you voted for Trump as an instrument of change, I didn’t agree with it but at least I understood.  But if after 18 months in you still think he is doing a “great job”, then I’m sorry, that’s just plain stupidity.  You live in a world of “alternate truths” and “alternate facts” that I just can’t understand.  But then again, there are reasons for laws against cousins marrying.
