What do you think about what happened in the United States yesterday? Are you shocked or surprised at the outcome, if it’s even known as you read this? Or are the results of the election what you expected? And finally, are you happy or unhappy?
Absent the final results, I’m saddened by the narrow margin between the presidential candidates. In 2016 I was shocked by the number of voters willing to place the country’s fate in the hands of a failed businessman with no moral compass. I understood many people weren’t aware of #45’s tactics at the time but growing up in New York gave me the advantage of knowing what he is capable of. Here we are four years later, when everyone has witnessed his incompetence and destruction, and so many still support him. I’m more disgusted than surprised, at this point. America has shown its whole ass and its crack is too far right. Even if Biden wins, the evil of the people is already known and can’t be put back in the box. I was certainly shocked by Kentucky and South Carolina Senate races. I need to further lower my expectations of the American people. 😞🤷🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️
