I’m with Bernie Sanders:
Funny thing is, the night after the election, a Trump-supporting brother called. He acknowledged that his candidate was flawed, but that he voted for him because business (he’s a businessman in New Mexico).
Do you go ahead and argue this one? The election is over, after all, though some people are taking it upon themselves to protest. In my family, we know where loyalties lie. We know each other’s politics and religion and we mostly disagree on both. So I got off a few nasty comments about Trump, we hung up laughing and then continued the conversation with vulgar texts back and forth — though they weren’t any more vulgar than our regular texts. I love my brother. I do not love his candidate. Can I still be friends with people who voted for Trump? Of course, provided they understand that I’m spending considerable calories organizing against his success in the next election.
