People who voted differently are still part of our American family. They were specifically targeted for their faith and loyal nature, they were targeted for their courage and patriotism. Don't force them to leave the abusive relationship, seek to understand. They are smart. They will correct THEIR COURSE. Be there for support. Bake cookies. Mostly shut up. 💙❤️United we stand. We need each other.❤️💙

  • Both parties should agree to remove trump who has proven he cares naught for the protection of his followers but no care for all the people who work in the Capitol! To incite a mob of uneducated thugs to attack our Capitol is not only unforgivable but I believe it is a crime to incite to riot which is exactly what this very sick president did! Trump should be dealt with harshly and severe punishment should follow! I Remember him from my days in Manhattan. Even then New Yorkers couldn’t tolerate him; but he won? the electoral votes with some foreign assistance as that election really was rigged and trump won but never ever deserved to win! He His term in office demonstrates his gross incompetence, his constant lies, his lack of ethics and morals; I.e. the fact he never paid the cities that hosted his wasteful rallies! Trump is not only a competent con artist he is a talented grifter....neither of these attributes are considered favorably ! And now he is conning his supporters ! Sadly, they are buying every bit of crappola he spews! Shame on trump..he is poor excuse for a man and a hoax for a president ! Trump is an actual fake and he biggest phony ever the unfortunately He is a huge hoax perpetrated on every American! So is America great again? since trump too Office it is hard to remember when we actually were great! He sabotaged our greatness!
