I must admit that I, too was partly surprised at the level of racism , etc. in the electorate. However, the fact that so many “christians” sided with a man who’s wife posed nude, who he himself was in a porno, who couldn’t even pronounce “2nd Corinthians” should have prepared me. The one warning omen I saw was the mass amount of Trump signs and the dearth of Hillary signs or bumper stickers. In fact, I still saw more Obama ’08 bumper stickers than Hillary ones. That should have been a clue. What I was shocked was by how many people I used to respect voted for him based on lies an innuendo about her yet, totally ignored the blatant things about him. So no, I wasn’t like Chris Rock in the SNL sketch. I was more hopeful (Jesse taught me that). Just as 8 years ago I fell in love with the country, now, I see us on a break. Clearly, I didn’t know you asa well as I thought.
