Give it a Chance

So tomorrow the world ends when Trump officially gets sworn in as the President of the United States. Or something like that is expected to happen. Personally I hope that dragons return and that's how the apocalypse goes. Back in reality however, the world will not end just because some orange man is going to be running a country. I think everyone needs to take a step or two back and, you know, give things a chance.

Like every elected official Trump has a list of things he wants to do that range from "that would be nice" to "oh god why that's the worst thing I've ever heard". Much like many other elected officials he may not get a chance to enact some of those truly terrible things. Then there are the things that people have just invented in order to strike up fear. It's kind of sad really.

I don't really know what Trump will do. No one knows for sure. That's one of the reasons people voted for him. Personally I didn't care much for either candidate. I knew y'all were fucked no matter who won the election. America has my sincerest sympathies that the best they could produce was Trump and Clinton.

During the run up to the election I was actually hired to write articles about why people loved Donald Trump and were voting for him. It was interesting. I can understand where they are coming from and, for their sake, I hope Trump can live up to their expectations. He brought a lot of people out of the grips of political apathy and made them believe in a politician again; by virtue of not being a politician. I'd hate for them to be let down again.

I'm not saying that Trump will be the best president ever. I'm not even casting my support for him or anything. I hope it doesn't come across like that. I'm just saying give things a chance. Wait to see how they will go. Trump could be the worst president ever but, you never know, maybe he ends up being the best one ever. Either way the only way to know for sure is to wait it out.

  1. Pretty much. Since November 8th, when he was elected, I've been pretty quiet about politics, because it seems less than constructive to flip out until he gets in and does something.

  3. Well technically there were plenty better candidates, they just got "bullied" out of a chance.
    But the past is the past. We need to look forward if we don't want to fall.
