I am going to bring it up, only in so much as it has affected me.
This election has been the worst I have ever gone through. I have lost friends over our differences - really pathetic actually, so superficial.
So, this friend of mine, we have never agreed politically. However, in all our differences, we had such fun - laughing, talking about the earth, social injustices, the education of our children, sewing, knitting, crocheting, art - she is/was my most well-rounded friend.
Well, she took a stand against Trump and for Clinton like no-one I have ever seen. Last night, she wrote that she would unfriend anyone who voted for Trump (really she meant anyone against Clinton). Now, I will not say who I voted for, but I did not vote for Clinton (don't assume only 2 parties either). I basically told her that a new day would come, people would go to work, kids would go to school, husbands and wives would argue and love, friends would disagree and hug.
She responded to me by saying she hoped I was right, but would hold me PERSONALLY responsibly for anything bad that happens while Trump was in office and that by NOT voting for Clinton, I was being anti-gay, anti-Jew, anti-black, anti-hispanic, anti-women, basically, against any minority group, which is ludicrous.
It actually hurt my heart to be told this by a person who sat in my home drinking wine and/or coffee, who I went to her home and watched her kids. Someone I shopped with.
I don't do these things very often or with everyone I know.
My husband said she will get over it eventually. I know he is right, but I really hate how the media and this election has polarized this country. Very sad indeed.
