Hope

At the end of a very difficult week, an amazing little vid clip that's the most hopeful thing I've seen all week.

Seems to have happened at one of the anti-Trump demonstrations in LA (although I'm not sure).

The women chanted "My body, my choice!".

The men responded: "Her body, her choice!"

Gave me shivers. Seriously.

This has been bugging me for weeks ... months, really.

In a perverse sort of way, I get Trumpism - that is the hateful xenophobic crap that he spouts where everyone who isn't a white male is to blame for all the ills of the world. I don't like it, but I get it.

But even if I bought into all that crap ...

Why would I believe The Donald when he says he can fix all that?

Why would I vote for a man whose sole field of expertise is in business, where he has a string (six, count them, six) of bankruptcies behind him?

What possible evidence is there that this person has the ability, the knowledge, the skills to achieve anything at all in life (given that he started his first business using Daddy's millions)?

That's what boggles me most.

It's not the hateful nature of his rhetoric. I absolutely understand who that's playing to.

It's the fact that people believe him when, without any demonstrable proof or evidence, he says he's the only one who can fix what they perceive to be wrong with their country.

That's what I don't get.

Can anyone explain it to me?
