But unfortunately the person who answered the call to be a different type of candidate was a raging dumpster fire of toxic sludge. A man who I wouldn't even classify as a decent human being, let alone as having the disposition to be President of the United States of America. Yet many Americans embraced him. And now he's going to be our president.
America spoke. Loudly and convincingly. We made this bed and now we have to lie in it too.
I have never felt this much fear and despair for my country. I hope beyond all hopes that this will bring us together, yet I fear it will divide us even more. I am terrified of what this means for my country.
Today I am thankful that I can't have children. Today I am thankful that I don't have to find the words to explain how this happened to my children. My heart hurts for those who do.
I am not a proud American today. We can do better, America.
