Why I have no sympathy for people who regret voting for Trump

At first, we thought it was funny. Surely, he would destroy his own reputation with each ridiculous tweet. But as more candidates dropped out and he became the Republican party candidate, things got worrying. Suddenly the pile of dozens of lawsuits against him stacked against Hilary using a personal email would have seemed to be the end, but here we are.

"Give him a chance!" They said. "He'll start acting like a president eventually!"


This isn't a whoopsie, either. Some people vote for a president based on who is best for America. Others vote for a president based on who is best for them and their demographic. Most people voted for Trump out of the second sentiment.


Trump has made it clear that he is best only for himself, and nobody else. People are starting to catch on. Of course, slightly over half the country already knew this was bad. But Trump supporters are starting to have second thoughts. One woman lost her husband after he was deported. Another Trump voter had her home foreclosed due to his cabinet picks. Not to mention the hundreds of tweets trending on #Trumpregret that come pouring out from a simple google search.

It's easy to see why some people might pity or even feel sympathetic for these people; in a Trump presidency, everyone loses.

I, however, will have zero empathy for these people. None.

It's important to remember that these people are not innocent victims, they chose this. You may think that one vote doesn't matter in American politics, but this is why it does.

Perhaps someone who voted Trump and has regret is reading this. I have a few questions for you:

-Did you vote for the good of yourself or the good of your country?

-Did you blindly vote for your party rather than evaluating each candidate?

-Did you research the candidates? Did you see the multiple crimes against Trump? Or did you see a republican nominee?

-If you voted for him and are not a rich white old catholic man: did you realize that he has made it abundantly clear that he is ragingly sexist, racist, xenophobic, elitist, antisemitic, misogynist, pig?

-Was it not concerning to you that there is no evidence of him paying taxes?

-Is it worth having a republican in charge who is publicly supported by the KKK? His father was a member.

-You saw no issue in the constant lies? I can't even link it because there are dozens of accounts of him publicly saying things that are blatantly wrong.

-A bald eagle attacked him for god sake. If this was a novel, I would call the symbolism heavy-handed.

-Did you not care about him having personal ties to the leader of a nation which has been America's #1 enemy for decades?

-Did you not care that there are dozens of rape and sexual assault/harassment cases stacked against him, including the rape of a 13 year old child?

The man exudes evil, and somehow people didn't see it coming. I blame this on two factors: voting for blind faith in the Republican party, and voting for a candidate that seems to support your exclusive demographic (he doesn't).

So no, I have no room to pity people who regret voting for Trump. The evidence was abundant and easy to access, clear and long-lasting through history. And yet, they chose to ignore it and are acting as though he is just now showing signs of being a bad choice as commander in chief.

Please, research your candidates and remember to vote in every election, each and every vote counts.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
