After dating him for months, learning who he really is, witnessing his abuses past and present, Our Country Married The ABUSER.
He didn't even wear a mask most of the time. He showed us his true self. And he was exposed.
But enough of America wanted him anyway.
Plenty of people said he is clearly a narcissist. Some said he is obviously a sociopath. And some (very quietly) called him an outright Psychopath.
In my real life, my friends, who did not vote for him, feel sickened and outraged. They are mostly in absolute shock. Some are rising up into activism. Many are falling into hopefulness and prayers that 'everything will be alright'.
In my real life, my now ex-friends who voted for him (I can no longer call them friends), are busy spreading their special forms of magical thinking. That he has some good in him, and that it will be alright. These women who voted for him: are engaged in abusive relationships with men. Totally dominated by her man because of her religion. Controlled in every aspect of her life. Dreaming of a someday when it is all going to turn out.
No. It won't. It will never 'turn out' with the abuser. You will either escape the abuser and go no contact, or you will endure and hopefully survive the relationship.
Those of us who have lived it, in our real life marriages, we see it. We see the dreamy hopefulness and the way the blinders are on. We shake our heads. We are, like, WTF?
The men who voted for him? Well, clearly, they LIKE the misogyny, the domination and the abuse.
He showed everyone exactly who he is. America married him anyway.
If I was married to a Trump supporter, I would get a divorce immediately. No joke.
