Dear Mr. VP,
One of the manifestations of my anxiety is an inability to deal with other people embarrassing themselves. It makes me squirm. I can’t do it. In movies, when I know someone is about to make a fool out of themselves, I try to tune it out. When someone is doing it in front of me, in person, it is sometimes almost physically unbearable.
That’s the reason I haven’t watched the video I’m linking below. I can’t even read the transcript without feeling like I want to vomit. I just went to YouTube to find the link to the video and immediately exited the page, because I couldn’t.
“I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said. “Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time … longer than you — they call her Pocahontas! But you know what, I like you. You are special people.”
Holy fucking shit.
Yes, I know, language. But is there anything else to say? This man is our PRESIDENT.
And yes, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “Pocahontas” IS a racial slur.
When does this bad dream end?
