First off, thanks to Caine for linking to this Tumblr. It’s called Trumpgrets. I went through it the first time just laughing, enjoying the schadenfreude I felt at all this. I even said the following on Facebook:
Trump Voters: “We need an outsider who tells it like it is! He’ll break up the establishment and Make America Great Again!”
Trump: *fills his administration with Washington and Wall Street insiders and members of the establishment, plus a few actual White Supremacists*
Trump Voters: *fill with regret* https://trumpgrets.tumblr.com/
Me: “Fuck all of you.”
But now, I’m going back through it, and I’m genuinely pissed off. What were these assholes watching? How could they have been so damned confused about which candidate Trump was and which candidate Clinton was? It seems to me like, somehow, they completely flipped them! Did they think Trump was running as the Democrat and Clinton was running as the Republican, or something?
I mean… what the hell?
Below the fold are a few choice examples that really angered me…
@realDonaldTrump i really hope my vote was not wasted. I work for 2$ less that the men and do twice the work its not fair!!!
Are you fucking kidding me? You voted for Donald Trump!
At what point did you think Donald “Grab her by the pussy” Trump would be the *feminist* candidate who would fix wage inequality? I actually remember Clinton talking about fixing that… how did you confuse them?
@realDonaldTrump I am a Senior Vet who would be dead without Medicare, and Little Social Security I live on $789 Month. Please don’t take!!
Then why, in the name of reality, are you a Republican? If you’re so worried about losing your Medicare, why would you ever be anything even close to a Republican? I would dearly love to know why anyone thinks the Republicans are the party of protecting Medicare! Since when has that ever been the case?
You voted for Donald fucking Trump, you ignorant asshole. How could you have expected anything else?
@AnnCoulter I can’t believe Ryan is now gonna phase out medicare . Next step s.s. ? This is not what I wanted from a trump administration.
Do these people live in an alternate universe where the Republican platform includes strong support for welfare programs like Medicare and Social Security? Because back here in my universe, it’s the Democrats who support and strengthen both, not the fucking Republicans.
I mean hello…
.@realDonaldTrump So don’t make me regret my vote. This isn’t funny. I went against many things I believe in, in hopes jobs will be created.
I went against many things I believe in
I WENT AGAINST MANY THINGS I BELIEVE IN
Because you thought Donald “four of my businesses have declared bankruptcy and have my products made in China” Trump would bring back jobs?
@realDonaldTrump I voted for you because I was in fear for the freedom of speech. Don’t make me regret it.
Right. Because Donald “I want to open up libel laws and sue everyone who says mean things about me” Trump is totes in favor of freedom of speech.
But let’s be honest, here… what you were actually afraid of losing was the freedom to be a bigot. Don’t lie…
Oh man… I thought that Tumblr would make me feel better, but it actually made me livid all over again.
I fucking hate people.
Why are people?
