A sincere message for conservatives and right wingers:

I get it. It might feel like you backed the wrong horse but now you feel you’re in too deep. Look no one’s saying you have to turn into a raging liberal.

You can still be a conservative dick (said out of old friendly bi-partisan ribbing not malicious intent, as a show of good faith I’ll say of myself, I’m a liberal asshole) and support someone else in the Republican Party. There’s a lot of you. At least 74 million.

I’m sure there’s someone more qualified for your ideals than a serial adulterer who bankrupts casinos.

And no I don’t think you’re all evil. The people who actually entered the Capitol are a different matter in my opinion, but I’m not talking about or to them right now.

I’m talking to the average Republican voter. You. The one who wound up conned by a conman. Nothing to be ashamed about. It’s what they do. It can really suck to admit it, but it can happen to anyone, just happened to be you this time.

I’ve heard arguments of how we should worry about healing and uniting the country. We can do both with one action. Hold this man accountable for leading the US, for leading you, astray. Ask yourself, do you honestly feel right having to find justification...

... for what transpired at the Capitol. Or does it kind of leave you feeling a bit sick to your stomach. Me too. That’s our unified American pride taking a blow. All because a spoiled guy who was gifted a million dollars, and lied to get out of the draft didn’t get his way.

And I know. It wasn’t your way either. But insurrection isn’t how we’re supposed to dispute this stuff. We have regular elections. And legal precedents to handle those kind of things now.

All we’re asking at this point is you see Trump for the dangerous, traitorous man he really is. He even told you what kind of man he was when he said he could shoot someone on fifth Avenue and get away with it. Don’t let him be right.

Thank you and long live the USA 🇺🇸
