I know that I keep writing about the election, but it’s hard to think about anything else.

The thing is that while I’m a Democrat, I’ve never felt that if a Republican won an election, I wouldn’t feel ok about it. But if Donald Trump wins this election, I think I will feel unpatriotic, like this is not longer my country, and quite frankly, scared.

It’s not because he’s a different political party, it’s because it’s become abundantly clear that he is not a balanced human being. Predatory behavior and “locker room banter” aside (which is hard to put aside, because it’s pretty fucking awful for a presidential candidate of the U.S.A., a role model, to be someone a woman cannot trust to be in a room with, who a teacher can only discuss by using careful and cagey language), Donald Trump has shown that he can come unhinged by a tweet, someone who disagrees with him, anybody who doesn’t believe what he believes. This is just not a temperament that should occupy the Oval (it’s more like a temper).

It’s so disturbing, this election. It’s taking a toll on people. I’m counting the days until this thing is over. And sweet Jesus, for all of our sakes, I hope my candidate wins.
