I'm the leftist who defended Trump in front of my leftist friends when he won. "When has a Republican ever waved a pride flag around on stage?" "He's going to get us out of TPP." "He's running on a platform of isolationism; at least he's not going to kill thousands like Bush."
But good god, has he been an absolute f**king disaster of a president since then. His followers' critical thinking skills are an embarrassment to our species.
