I'm With Them

Donald, you are not my president.

I'm With Them

A few weeks ago I wrote an article titled Regretfully, He Is My President. I wrote about how I will respect Donald Trump as my president no matter how much I dislike him.

Well, I was wrong.

Trump has really, how do you say, goofed up. He's doing a really bad job, like really bad. I refuse to stand with this man for the next four years, because America thought a woman would make too many emotional decisions that would affect our country negatively. Good call you guys. Now we have a president who tweeted at Nordstrom because they stopped carrying his daughter's clothing line, yet is coming up with plans that will extend the time period of the water pipes in Flint, Michigan getting replaced. You know, because they don't have clean water. Everyday, it seems that I'm more and more disappointed in my so-called president. I tried, I really did; I cannot support a man like this. Mr. Trump, I am not with you.

I am with the people that marched on January 21st for the Women's March, the day after the inauguration.

I am with the immigration lawyers who stood at the airport for hours helping Muslims come into the country while you tried to ban them.

I am with Elizabeth Warren who was silenced at a Senate meeting while she read a letter from Loretta Scott King, the late widow of Martin Luther King Jr. It was a letter regarding the nomination of Jeff Sessions, which then proceeded to go live on Facebook to read the letter and said, "they can shut me up, but they can't change the truth."

I am with every member of the senate who voted against Betsy Devos.

I am with Bernie Sanders, who continuously fights against the backwards movement of our country, reminding the young people of America that we have a voice that they are trying to silence.

I am with everyone who still speaks out against the progression of our country moving backwards.

Be with us.

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
