Vowing to never get over Trump's election

I've listened as they called my president a Muslim and said he wasn't born here. I watched as they blocked every single path to progress and every opportunity to form bridges of compromise.

I was livid as they shut down the government and hurt an entire nation, spent millions of taxpayer money to repeal the ACA and vowed to obstruct him over every piece of legislation for his entire presidency.

Now, I'm being called on to be tolerant, denounce protesters and to "get over it"? I will never get over it. My plan is to make sure this corrupt mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history for the next four years. With every single mistake, and every time this man backs away from the promises he made, I will call him out in a loud voice.

I vow not to be tolerant even one day of this "ruling class" administration because I've tolerated all I can. Now they can be tolerant of ridicule. When he cuts Medicare, ACA, SS and destroys our environment it will be solely on Trump's shoulders just like they thought it was Obama's.

He is the illegitimate president-elect as he stole the election and lost the popular vote by 2.7 million. There is no mandate here. This man and his "ruling class" government is not normal, and when he speaks, I will turn the channel because he lies, has offended every segment of our society and has already duped his supporters.

You can't expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give.
