It seems every other post from my liberal brethren contains this word this morning, in an effort to ridicule Trump for a typo he made in a tweet last night. I’d like to offer some perspective on this, for anyone who cares.
If you are an intelligent, adult, voting American using a stupid typo to make fun of the president, please understand, this does not damage his credibility in the eyes of those who support him – it damages yours. You are coming across as petty high schoolers with nothing better to do than make fun of the kid in your class who wore mismatched socks.
I whole heartedly agree with you that Trump is bad for this country, and the world as a whole. But, if you are going get that message across to those who are still in his camp, you will not do so like this. When you ridicule Trump for a ‘lack of intelligence’, you inadvertently isolate and ridicule those who support him. This will not work out well for you, or for this country. Remember what 4 years of this ridicule did for Dubya?
It got him another 4 years.
For every ten posts I’ve seen about this typo, I’ve seen perhaps one about him pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement at the suggestion of his climate-changing-denying, head of the EPA.
This is not a time for pettiness. This is a time to come together, using intelligent conversation (preferably in person, and not on Facebook, wherever possible), and find common ground as Americans. We all want the basic same liberties. Let’s discuss those. Making fun of the other camp over trivial garbage will never bring us together.
