I’m Sorry For Not Taking Donald Trump Seriously

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

I had a post last year in which I said Donald Trump was almost delusional, and I even applauded him a little for going for this dream that wasn’t going to happen.

But now he’s become this exceptionally dangerous man who somehow keeps getting further than he ever should. And I don’t know what’s happening.

I’ve been thinking this at every turn – that I should apologize for that post. (Even though I also felt at every turn that he’d never move on.) But he keeps moving on. So, I think it’s time for me to just say I’m sorry. The idea that sometimes someone has to be a little delusional to keep a dream alive, I guess is still sorta kinda something I believe in. But Donald Trump being a shining example of anything at all (other than precisely the type of person we don’t want to be) is ┬ápreposterous.

So, I’m sorry to have used him to help an explain a positive idea.

I’m sorry I thought he was harmless. I’m just sorry.

[Edited to add: John Oliver also did an apology. (His is amazing, and of course better than mine… He’s John Oliver.)]

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
