Wow – I started my day by turning on the TV before I got out of bed, and then I saw it – Trump Is President-elect. I won’t lie to you, tears flowed. I was so depressed, it was hard to get out of my bed and go to work this morning. But, being as it’s a new job, I had to get up and face the day. AND that’s what you do – face adversity square in the face.
The least qualified person to ever run for president has won. What does that say about our country? The world now really seems so different, so upside down, so lost . . .
It was a hard day. Add that to the fact that my best friends’ mom is probably dying, and I was a hot mess, for sure. I had a teary morning at work, luckily by myself, and then I pulled it together.
Now, I just got home from a dinner of Mexican food and margaritas, to celebrate I don’t know what, maybe the beginning of the end, and I hear there are Trump anti-protests in several cities.
I have to admit, I blame the Democratic National Convention (DNC) for their misstep. Truth is, they cheated Bernie Sanders out of the nomination. They did everything they could to ensure he was not their nominee, even though Bernie WAS the predicted winner some time ago.
It was so bad, even I , who always thought I would relish a woman candidate for president in my lifetime, was stymied. It’s definitely been a tough bittersweet election cycle. Knowing Bernie got screwed made it hard to be loud and proud about our first modern female presidential candidate.
I hate to say it, but you get what you get. America wanted something new and different, and that’s what they got. The Democrats didn’t give them that option, but somehow the Republicans did. Being a praying person, all I can do is pray that God guides Trump to be the positive change America believes he is. That and wring my hands, just a little.
Oh and as an aside – I can’t wait to win so much that I get sick of winning and to become rich beyond my belief – we shall see (after the three and a half years I’ve been through) . . . but not holding my breath. (That was Trump’s promise!)
How are you feeling today? Sad, scared, hopeful?
Just something I was thinking about . . .

I feel exactly the way you do…. disbelief, distressed and discussed. Just proves that the media can repeat a product’s name every 5 minutes and soon people will believe anything. Trump was created from the feet up by everyone that knew it was all wrong but they continued to talk about him and laughed about his uncouthness but didn’t stop it because it was a train wreck that everyone could not take their eyes off of and the networks made millions in advertising with every outrageous thing he said. Like the CBS CEO was recorded saying “Trump is the worse thing for America but he has been the best thing to happen for CBS”. Trump received Millions of dollars in free advertising because he kept people watching and raised their ratings. He was created by those in Congress that would not admit that Trumps Birther movement was a sham and they would not admit that the President was an American. Trump is a puppet that was as surely created by the Media, Congressmen and American people as Charlie McCarthy was created by Edgar Bergen. But they knew he was a circus act but continued to root him on. And now we and they are stuck with him.
