My Best People Voted for Trump
That's the truth. The 'best' people on my friends list voted Trump.
When I hear the indignation, read the philosophical lamentations trying to grasp what happened and hear the dripping condensation in the voices of those that feel the 'uneducated' have just burdened them with a racist, misogynistic neanderthal...
I think of my personal friends and acquaintances (367 to be exact). And how the very best of them --
the ones that give the most money to charity, who give of themselves and their own time to charity, who adopt children and take in foster kids (of any color) and pregnant teen moms (of any color), the ones who volunteer the most, shuttle other people's kids the most and the ones you would trust your kids with without a second though --
--on in my list of 50/50 politically mixed friends...all are Trump voters but one.
Many are women.
Most are college educated.
Many are Jewish.
Some are Black.
Some are gay.
One is transgender.
None are racist.
