Profiles in idiocy: GOP women who voted for Trump have buyer's remorse

Sometimes your explanation just makes things worse:

Republican women who voted for President Trump in North Carolina said during a focus group Wednesday night that they are embarrassed by and exasperated with him.

-- Annie Anthony, 56, voted for Trump last year because she opposes abortion and did not like how Hillary Clinton handled Benghazi. Now she fears that Trump is marching us toward war with North Korea. She describes the first 10 months of his presidency as “chaotic, stressful and an uphill battle.”

Benghazi? During his campaign, Trump demonstrated time and time again that he wasn't even remotely qualified to serve as President, that he had nothing but contempt for women and viewed them as merely sexual toys to be played with when the mood came on him, and that he would lie about any subject, no matter how easily that lie would be exposed. But you didn't like Clinton because of a totally fabricated controversy that Fox News fed to you every day. You should be embarrassed, and don't expect the slightest bit of sympathy for your condition.



Is this who I'm supposed to reach out to?

Seriously, I'm still hearing about how Democrats need to spend more time coaxing white voters to our side, to give those middle-of-the-road suburban and rural voters a reason to come over and join us. But how (in the hell) can you reason with somebody who is gullible enough to fall for that Benghazi crap? How can you reason with somebody who wants to force women to carry unwanted pregnancies to full term?

There is a limit, and if you ask me to cross that line and beat my head against the rock wall of ignorance, don't be surprised if I tell you "I don't have time for that nonsense." Because I don't.

p.s. Sorry about the paywall

This WaPo article is the only place I could find the quote above, and many of you (including me) will only be able to see the few sentences I shared above.

I shamelessley STOLE the content...

by opening in a "private" window.
from the story: makes less than $50K and hopeful that tax cuts will pass. Still wants to "drain the swamp" and will likely continue voting that way in 2018.
All the hullabaloo about participation medals is projection, I think.

Bless her heart...

If Trump does much more of his version of "draining the swamp," we'll have to declare everything inside the beltline as a zoned and protected wetlands...
