This post was written around 11:00 this morning. It certainly has taken on a more powerful meaning as the day unfolded.
An open letter to those of you now ripping Trump:
You spineless, weak and feckless people
Now you dare say Trump deserves criticism?
Now you find a voice to criticize him?
You stayed silent when he separated families, yet you insist you value family?
You stayed silent when he swelled the deficit, yet you insist you value fiscal responsibility?
You stayed silent when he mocked the weak, yet you insist you value character?
You enabled every conspiracy theory, every angry rant, every assault on our allies.
Your sins of acquiescence cannot be absolved by saying something now.
If he was your man in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, then he is your man in 2021. Abandoning him now says much about the kind of person you are.
You loathe him now because he can do no more for you? Repulsive.
That is all.
