If You Voted for Donald Trump, You Owe My Children an Apology

If you voted for Donald Trump, you owe my children an apology.

You owe them an apology for making them grow up with a hateful, incompetent, petulant, predatory monster as their President.

For placing their safety in the hands of an impulsive child, who trolls world leaders with nuclear weapons and wields our military like an insecure coward brandishes a gun at a party.

For unleashing the fierce tide of bullying, racism, bigotry, and homophobia they have to see in their classrooms and ball fields and neighborhoods—because the man you chose has repeatedly encouraged and legislated it.

For making them do “shooter drills” at school, because you’ve sanctioned a man who is fully in bed with the NRA, who removes barriers to mentally ill people getting guns, and who does nothing to prevent military weapon proliferation.

For the terrifying images of a crowd of emboldened, violent, torch wielding Nazis terrorizing a town—and of a President who coddled them afterward.

For the inexplicable disconnect they see in a man claiming to be Christian—while being so devoid of anything remotely resembling Jesus.

You owe my daughter an apology for excusing his reprehensible words about women when voting for him; for ignoring the multiple accusations of sexual assault against him, for placing a man with such clear disregard for her at the highest level of leadership in the country she calls home.

You owe my son an apology for taking someone with a lifetime resume of filth and misogyny, and asking him to look up to that man as a leader; for rewarding the very sexist, ignorant, repugnant behavior we implore him never to engage in or abide in those around him.

You’ve let my children down by thrusting them into an America that is far less secure, less compassionate, less decent, more fractured, and more violent than it was a year ago—and because that truth alters children immersed in it.

But lest you think this is just about me, about my family, about my children—be assured it is not.

Yes, you’ve surely failed my children with your vote, and more so with the way you’ve doubled down on the toxicity released over the past year—but you don’t owe an apology to them alone.

You owe your children an apology too.

They too are inheriting this jagged, hateful, angry nation you’ve co-created with your vote. They too are reminded every day by their President, that honesty and integrity and empathy and kindness are of little value; that going low gets the intoxicating applause of the crowd and the affection of the ignorant.

They too will have their personalities, their priorities, their sense of safety, and their very identities formed in the crucible of this scalding hatred Donald Trump presides over and continually cultivates.

If your children one day become ill, they too will have a difficult time affording care or staying alive without going broke.

They too will have to breathe the air and drink the water and reside on the planet that this President leaves to rot.

They too will be saturated in the enmity and the callousness of this country—and make no mistake it will change who they are. It will change the way they perceive truth and the way they respect differences and the way they value people’s bodies and well-being. 

And not just my children and not just your children.

You owe an apology to every child who has to spend their formative years in an America that is defined by:
fear of the other,
an epidemic of cruelty,
a poverty of decency,
a deadly allergy to facts,
a Christianity of coercion and malice,
a defiant resistance to diversity.

You owe an apology to every young woman growing up in an America where celebrity preachers vilify assault victims and defend predators, where accusers are tried and offenders elected.

You owe an apology to every young man who forms his identity in a culture where men can do whatever they want to women and they will rarely be held accountable; where gentleness is a liability and brutality an asset.

Yes, this horrible stuff existed long before this year, but it’s never had such a powerful and uncontested cheerleader with such an ability to ratify it all—and that’s something that’s on you and that you’ll have to own. That’s just how it is.

So yes, you can puff out your chest online, and posture and boast all you want.
You can cling to the fading lie that you’ve won anything here, or that you’ve somehow struck a blow for America or Jesus or patriotism.
You can tell me to suck it up and to let it go and to f*ck off—which I’m now quite used to.
But at the end of the day you’ve simply let a lot of people down:

My children.
Your children.
The children of this country and the planet.

They all have lost because you were irresponsible with one of the greatest responsibilities you’ve ever had in their lifetime, and now they have to live with the terrible fallout—and you owe them all an apology.

I’m well aware of what your likely response to all this will be. I don’t imagine an apology will be forthcoming—so I’ll apologize to them on your behalf.

Then, I’ll spend every day living that apology.

I’ll remind my children your children and all children, that there are lots of adults who still believe that people are inherently valuable and stunningly beautiful—that not all adults fear brown people and gay people and foreigners and immigrants.

I’ll remind them that there are still people committed to the truth and to equality, and the richness found in diversity.

I’ll do my best to make them feel safe and loved and hopeful here, even on the days that I don’t.

I’ll even teach them to forgive people who fail and hurt them, because I know how difficult that it is right now.

And I’ll remind them that even when bad people are rewarded, doing the right thing is still the thing most worth doing.

I’ll teach them that when hatred seems the most treasured currency, that love is still worth more than gold.

I’m just sorry that they have to live with something (and someone) far less than they deserve—and they didn’t have to.

  1. I feel the same way about your vote for Hillary and what She stands for but I don’t have a pulpit to spread constant negativity. Why supposedly intelligent people are taken in by her is beyond many of us! You preach spreading love and unity – do it instead of dividing!

    • Patricia is just upset because every citizen in the United States is not getting behind Donald Trump and hoisting him onto a high pedestal. She was born long ago in a time when parents named their children with names like “Patricia.” One Republican ran for President and one Democrat ran for President. When one or the other was elected—all voters got behind and supported that one person—regardless of who they had voted for “because he is OUR President.

      Well, I have some news for you Patricia. This is not 1956—and the Soviet Union is not staring us down in Berlin. In the 1970s, a man named Paul Weyrich, with the assistance of people like Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, put forward the false idea that all Democrats are enemies of God, and all Republicans are the only people truly beloved by God. As a direct result of that, the two sides are now polarized with a vast distance between them—and both sides HATE each other with a PERFECT HATRED. That is why you love Trump and hate Hillary Clinton. That is why the whole nation does not come together behind Donald Trump or any other President. We live in a country where 50 percent of the people hate the President and 50 percent of the people love the President.
      (give or take a few percentage points that vacillate one way or another depending on what day it is).

      Wake up Patty!!!! The United States of America is a house divided against itself—and it has been that way since about 1994.

      Sword drill!!! What famous historical character said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

      • Nonsense. Trump voters do not give one single F what any Clinton voter or Bernie voter feels or thinks. They’re flatly too thick to even engage. This entire diatribe is flatly rejected. And so your pinched remark.

        If this guy is actually a pastor then what reason would anyone have for going to church? This can never sink into your thick sanctimonious skulls but Trump voters are actually smarter than you and more emotionally stable besides and their reasons for voting as they did and do and will, are so far beyond you, so impossible of your acceptance, there is no point in even engaging. So we don’t.

        • Weird because I’ve heard a lot of unstable Donald supporters say the stupidest things out loud. They are very defensive and take almost everything as an attack and say everything that Donald says. It’s like they have no intelligence or personality so they become his puppets by saying and doing what he says. They also take on the same emotions as him. Very smart and stable people huh?

      • And you have not recovered from 1994 whooping you took. Patricia expressed he opinion without really expanding on it and you just took off.

      • REALLY??? An ad hominem attack on a person’s given name??? How low have you people sunk to do that! Apart from the fact that you and your response are full of bovine excrement, you are mean and turpid…AKA the typical liberal democrat. Let’s face it, Pavlovitz’s “article” is also filled with feces, to say nothing of seething rage and hatred.
        The name Patricia is very honorable, there have been many famous Patricias, and the name derives from the Roman word “patrician,” which means high class (as opposed to plebeian, like you).

      • Charles, my name is Patricia. I was born 60 years ago and, yes, the name was common then. Parents on all sides of the political spectrum named their daughters Patricia.
        My political views are diametrically opposed to the hateful stuff spewed by the Patricia to whom you responded. But your words hurt me as well because you chose to pick on a common name and demographic.
        Names hurt. I go by Trish or Patricia now. But when I was young, I was called Fatty Patty. Still hurts to write it, but I figure you should know, since you are willing to pick on names and ages instead of sticking to the issues. And god knows–there are plenty of them to criticize. Please apologize.

    • Amen!!!!!! What you do speaks a whole lot louder than what you say. You preach love and unity and then continually practice negativity and division. In God’s sight, EVERYONE is important….and God is in control, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH…..but I am sure your hatred will sell books $$$$$$$$$$$

    • You don’t have the pulpit John, but you have this small pew in his chapel. So speak from it.

      What *possible equivalency does Hillary have to 45?

      • How many years of defending Bill Perks-of-Office Clinton and normalizing the idea that men making the work-place a sexual one is just groovy?

        • I’m simply asking for any sources from Patricia. You know…like the *many John listed.

          Feel free to chime in, Julie. If you’re so upset by what BC did, I can’t imagine that you’re OK with what DT is being accused of/has admitted to doing.

        • Bill Clinton did some bad things when he was president but that’s done now. And it has nothing to do with who the president is now and what the now president is doing. Just because Bill Clinton had an affair does not mean that Donald’s immigration ban all of a sudden becomes less racist.

          • I can’t say I even care if it’s called Racist.
            The fact is the Constitution gives him the right to ban ANY group from coming in. I wish he would just state that fact and tell the Leftist puppet courts to shut up.

            • Call yourself a Christian, eh? If you and your ilk actually go to heaven, it’s definitely better to be in hell.

            • Wow. You are astonishingly ignorant. You have obviously never read or made any attempt to actually understand the Constitution or the intent of the men who wrote it. Neither the president nor anyone else has the “right” to ban any group from entering this country. Immigrants, like your ancestors, BUILT this country!

          • In case you haven’t noticed, President Trump’s immigration ban involves countries that ARE KNOWN SPONSORS OF TERRORISM. For cryin’ out loud! Get your head out of your canal! Read the headlines about Sweden’s migrant problem and decide if you want that for America.

            • Oh really, when did Mexico get on that list? He is a racist just like his rich daddy was. he is also a dry drunk, unl8ke his brother Fred Jr. who died of alcoholism and his memory was shut away as to not interfere with Trumps’s plastic perfect family.

            • Really? Is Saudi Arabia on the list, or are facts just not that important to you? Don’t bother, you’ve already revealed yourself.

    • You really missed the point, didn’t You? Can’t help but use Hillary, once again, as a token defensive response for your choice. Please read this again. Appreciate it for the truth of spirit with which it was written. Human beings have a great capacity for admitting we were wrong and forgiving ourselves and others. Learn by this and make amends.

      • It’s quite the opposite. Liberals are the speech anarchists. They shout down ANY opposition to their lousy ideas–which is why “Merry Christmas!” fell into the abyss of political correctness.

        • You do realize that no one ever said you could not say Merry Christmas, right?
          People have been saying Happy Holidays for decades. When you say Happy Holidays, you are including all the holidays that occur pretty much between US Thanksgiving and mid-January when Orthodox Christmas and Orthodox New Year are celebrated.
          You can, and always could, say Merry Christmas.
          There has never been a ‘war on Christmas’, that was just another way to get uninformed people all fired up.

        • Do you live in N Korea? I’ve always said and heard Merry Christmas, and there nothing wrong with Happy Holidays either. You are either really dumb, or just a really hateful person, probably both.

  2. Excellent writing, John Pavlovitz. I take issue with only one point, and that’s the implication that mentally ill people might be responsible for the domestic terrorism/mass shootings we are seeing these days. Mentally ill people are much more likely to turn the gun on themselves than they are to shoot others. Certainly, I oppose permitting mentally ill people to have guns–but I oppose permitting bullies, thugs, misogynists, homophobics, racists, Nazis, criminals, and other hate-filled, violence-prone individuals to have guns as well. What makes our society so much more violent, say, than Canada, our neighbor to the north? We need to look at many layers of questions with respect to continuing to unleash such weapons on the public. Obviously questions for another post and not your primary topic here. Thank you!

    • “What makes our society so much more violent, say, than Canada, our neighbor to the north? ”

      Diversity. We have it, they don’t. Note that their only nod to diversity, Quebec, has been trying to leave, with or without violence, for decades.

        • Check out how well Sweden is handling its “diversity.” Poor Sweden–a shell of its former self.

          http://www.savemysweden.com/swedens-sexual-assault-crisis-presents-a-feminist-paradox

          Previous studies (by now more than a decade old) have shown a large overrepresentation of immigrants, particularly from patriarchal societies in the Middle East and North Africa, among the suspects of sex crimes in Sweden. Overrepresentation of immigrants has been even higher when it comes to group rapes, especially with three or more assailants. According to an official study from 1996, immigrant males were 4.5 times as likely as Swedes to commit rape. Immigrants from Algeria, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia were particularly overrepresented, being more than 20 times as likely to commit the same crime. In total, 53 percent of rape suspects were either first or second generation immigrants.

      • That is simply not true! Have you ever actually BEEN to Canada? It is, in fact, a VERY diverse nation! Montreal is quite a cosmopolitan city, every bit as diverse as any U.S city.

    • I didn’t read it that way, probably because my concern with that legislation was shady caregivers using their charges’ clean records and credit cards to obtain weapons.

  3. This has to be one of my absolute favorite blogs by John. It is clear, unobstructed truth. And yes, the trolling will begin. Because the very ones who will be pissed off at the eloquent, yet necessarily harsh truth here will be loath to admit they screwed our country and world over, by electing one of the least qualified sociopaths to the office of POTUS.

  4. Pingback: John Pavlovitz – If You Voted for Donald Trump, You Owe My Children an Apology – Persona

    • ^^^Courage. Everybody misjudges now and again, and crow pie tastes pretty nasty. I should know. I’ve eaten quite a lot of it in my 55 years.

    • Yes, I was on that bandwagon right after November 8, 2016. Here are the exact words I sent to Senator Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander in a letter right after the election. I seem to have brought Bob around to my way of thinking. He once sent me “Form Letters.” Now he responds to me personally, and he sometimes tries to call me on the telephone from his office in Washington. Here is my letter—so all you Republicans suck this in good—just so you will know what Senate Republicans are thinking behind closed doors:

      “This letter is written to you in my roles as an Independent voter, a professional scientist, a Christian (member of the United Methodist Church), and a highly learned life-long student of American history:

      In my honest opinion, this coming Inauguration Day (Friday, January 20, 2017) will be remembered by future American historians as one of the darkest days in American history. Knowing what I do about American history, world history, and the personality traits of past totalitarian political leaders, I am in deep depression and grief about Donald J. Trump taking the oath of office to become President of the United States. Even more than this, I am concerned for the future safety of my wife and my two children.

      The United States of America is 241 years old. Throughout those many years, we have been blessed with 44 sane, emotionally stable, and honorable men as our Presidents. However, as the old saying goes: “There is a first time for everything.” I have watched Donald J. Trump, his demeanor, his public speaking, and his general behavior very closely each day for the past year and a half. As a result, I am irretrievably convinced that Donald J. Trump is mentally unstable, emotionally unhinged, and downright dangerous because of it. In other words, I am absolutely convinced that Donald J. Trump is a “clear and present danger” to the United States of America and the American people.

      Therefore, I am kindly and respectfully writing this message to urge you and your Congressional colleagues to secretly draft a Republican contingency plan for legally impeaching Donald J. Trump and removing him from office at that inevitable future time when his mental problems and emotional instability clearly demonstrate themselves in the development and execution of actions dangerous to the United States and its people. From what I have seen of this man’s erratic behavior and his well-known refusal to learn even the simplest things about governing a nation sensibly and wisely, I can assure you that a crisis time will come when impeachment is the only answer to save our country, and that time may come more quickly than anyone imagines right now. This concern of mine is not politically partisan. Any other sane and sensible Republican who might replace Mr. Trump as President of the United States at some future date would be fine with me.

      Please take this message seriously. Because of Mr. Trump’s inherent mental and emotional instability, he clearly has no feel for the dignity, poise, composure, and professionalism that have been the hallmarks of our past 44 Presidents—and he is unlikely to ever learn them. You too have no doubt watched the unprofessional, wild, and crazy antics of Mr. Trump over the past couple of years. You already see how his inane Tweet Storms are undermining the U.S. Stock Market on an almost daily basis and how he is upsetting our overseas allies—and how he is already undermining long-established diplomatic understandings with our allies and foreign adversaries—understandings that have kept the peace since World War II.

      To summarize, in my honest opinion, Mr. Trump is mentally and emotionally unstable and dangerous—and as member of the U.S. Congress and as a Republican, you have a sworn oath of responsibility to protect the American people and the U.S. Constitution from this man, even to the point of legally removing him from office, if that should become necessary. Right now, you and your colleagues need to create a secret Republican contingency plan for doing just that. If you cannot draft such a plan for me, then please do it for my wife and my two children who are peaceful and loving people who just want a safe and stable future as citizens of our country. No American should have to live in fear of their own President.

      Thank you for taking the time to read my message. Have a nice day.”

    • Impeach? For what? What “high crime or misdemeanor” did President Trump commit? Perjury under oath like Bill Clinton? Um, no.

  5. this has to be a parody? lol.

    You would have written the same tripe if Kasich, Bush, or Cruz had won.
    That’s the problem with calling everyone a monster – pretty soon no one is.

    • From Ohio. I’d give anything for Kasich to be in the White House instead of Trump. Moreover, George W. doesn’t look so bad in hindsight either. And I’m a libtard snowflake. LOL!

      • Yeah, that’s liberals’ relationship with Republican presidents in a nutshell. Before they’re elected and while they’re in office, all Republicans are literally Hitler. After some time, however, liberals rehabilitate ex-Republican presidents such that they’re not “so bad in hindsight either”.

        It’s like a liberal version of ex-gay therapy.

  6. At least he didn’t take bribe money from countries that kill gays and non-compliant women or have the IRS target conservatives or have the NSA spy on us or allow Black Panthers to hold billy clubs at election sites, or be the main reason 5 Dallas cops died or lie about Doctors or let out vets die in horrible hospitals or abandon his Ambassador or…o nevermind,your children prayerfully will reject your hate.

  7. Thank you, John. I’ve been worried about this country since Trump was elected. I also think an apology should be given by anyone who didn’t vote, or voted for a third party. I’m to the left of Bernie and have hugged as many trees as Stein but I worked for Hillary through the primary and the general election. Those people who were upset because they didn’t get the one they they wanted in the primary are just as guilty for all of the evil Trump has brought on this nation and this world. Hillary and Bernie voted the same in the legislature 98% of the time and yet they would rather have this maniac and chief than vote for someone who didn’t exactly match their personal beliefs. Great article, man.

  8. Thank you! Your posts always give me hope that there are sane people in the world. That there are true Christians out there trying hard to be a voice of reason and truth. It is refreshing to see someone that talks of the things that Jesus taught, not the ridiculous b.s. that is laughingly refered as Christianity these days. I admit, I am still searching for my truths, but what these people are doing to this country and faith, is beyond awful.

  9. Is there going to be an apology for calling folks fascists, Nazis, or even worse? In front of their own children …

    An apology for attacking the children of said supporters for simply being the offspring of that person?

    Of there being a ‘Resistance’ before there was even a regime?

    An apology for believing every improbably lie because it fit your personal narrative while denying the truth which dispelled those lies?

    Yet even then the adult thing to do would be to apologize for one’s wrong-doings … and you will get no apology from me because Hillary Clinton remains the 2nd best choice even now.

    Would we have a new Supreme Court Justice even now as she kept nominating Liberal judges this Senate would not confirm?

    Would we be in a shooting war with Russia over Syria … after creating the ‘No Fly’ Zone as she promised to do? You know ~ the actual World War III?

    Do you doubt for a second this nation would be even more divided ~ though you would hear about this less in the media and more on the internet? And do you think this level of ‘Resistance’ would make a Hillary Era internet safer, or less safe, for all of us?

    So ‘no’, no apology from me to your children. I voted for what I believe to be the better future for all of us ~ for all of our children. We didn’t have the best choices, so I did the best with what I was given. I will not apologize for participating in the democratic part of this Democratic Republic. I most likely never will.

    • Mr. Dosher, It has been awhile. Welcome. Hopefully your writing time has been successful and without stress. I know you come here to rebut Mr. Pavlovitz’s words, but I always have the urge to bug you anyway.

      First, as I have already written, no one should ever have to apologize for voting.

      To me you are two sides of a puzzle that does not fit together. You speak of your wife so lovingly and I believe she is truly your partner. Your mother sounds awesome! Your series that I have read has a heroine who is strong and courageous and funny. She is my hero.

      You are a man of words, yet you defend a man who only speaks in braggadocio mode and when left to his own devices – word soup. I must say it speaks volumes about his college education. My mother had to quit school after eighth grade to work in the fields and she had a better command of the English language and spoke in complete sentences. Her parents only spoke Portuguese.

      You say you are a friend and defender of women and LGBTQ. You showed so much contempt for the women’s march and other protests. I wonder if you felt as much contempt back in 2008 and 2009, for the Tea Party protests and the Taxpayer March on Washington or the burning effigies of a hanging black figure, the racial violence that ensued, or the decision of the Republicans, on the night of the Obama’s inauguration, to become the party of no and fight everything Obama did. They have since proved they also were the party of do nothing – no actual work on replacing Obamacare or tax reform for all those years. They should refund their wages to the taxpayers. On November 6, 2012 Donald Trump called for protests, based on the false belief that Obama had lost the popular vote when re-elected. Irony

      Isn’t it possible that many, like me, actually researched enough of Trump’s life to realize he was unqualified, a liar, sexist, and a bully. You can laugh at his “locker room talk” and pretend that it was a one off but that is simply not true.

      Back when the Republicans thought the Hillary might win, they were just fine with only 8 Supreme Court Justices. Merrick Garland, a moderate, was blocked for 10 months until the election.
      During the Republican obstruction years, some Obama term judge vacancies were vacant for more than 5 years. This is why Trump has so many vacancies to fill. He is filling life time posts with young far right conservative judges. This will have consequences for decades.

      Do not think we are idiots. Women have already been hit with diminishing access to cheap birth control for those who need the most help. Birth control – bad — erectile dysfunction medication – necessary. Access to a safe abortion is shrinking. Transgenders already got called out by the President. The military did not even ask that they be banned. The justice department has rescinded their job protection.

      Women, minorities, LGBTQ, working people, the disabled and middle and lower wage tax payers are going to suffer. Republicans scream small government but have no problem trying to legislate their hypocritical idea of morals. I read that with this tax reform you will not be able to deduct alimony. I watch ID network. I was amazed at how many spouses are killed in order to not have to pay alimony and that was when you could deduct it. Somehow this is to promote staying in a marriage.

      Will you be offended when your daughter has to hide who she is? I am straight but I grew up when everyone who is not straight had to hide who they were.

      I am plenty offended that we will be going backwards.

      I am offended that taxpayers will have to foot the bill for Trump’s giant phallic symbol to himself – the wall that forever will be tied to his name.

      I am offended that taxpayers are being given a pat on the head for a couple of years of maybe or maybe not tax relief to pay our tithe to the rich and powerful who will granted eternal tax relief added to their “get out of jail free” cards.

      I am offended that we are once again throwing more money at the military while never requiring an audit. We know the money never trickles down to the actual boots on the ground soldier. One lost hero is one too many. We know there has been corruption and incompetence at the highest levels. We know they “lost track” of 7 trillion dollars over 2 decades.

      I am offended that those who scream pro-life or party of family values actually are neither.

      I am offended that the US debt is so important when a Democrat is President but meaningless with a Republican is.

      You have said that you are a libertarian. You think people should be left to their own devices and magically everything will be coming up roses. All I see in our future is greed, corruption and pain.

      I pray for peace, equality and the acknowledgement that each and every person is honored for their worth.

    • James is right.

      No one is going to apologize to anyone for the hate they spewed, for the slander, for calling people Nazis, for saying that a different opinion on policy is wanting people to die, and on and on. Because people are PROUD of that. And they’re proud of saying those things in front of their children.

      Someone probably ought to apologize to the kids but they won’t do that either.

  10. Thank you for saying what alot of Christians are afraid to say. I go to a church surrounded by his supporters (even the leadership out right supporting him saying he’s a good Christian man). My daughter is bullied at school for not supporting him. Thank you pastor I wish I lived close to your church it would be an honor to be a member of your flock and to learn and grow with you as my pastor.

  11. So powerful and true. I had not realized the effect on children until you so eloquently pointed it out. I hope people appreciate your thoughts and words or at the very least that it makes them think. Well done John.

  12. Every single word you wrote is true, but it doesn’t go far enough.

    The people who voted for Trump, any RepubliKKKan, any third party candidate, or who didn’t vote at all owe your children and all the children of the world an apology. The evils you describe above impact all of the world’s kids.

    I hope you are not holding your breath, John.

    They also owe apologies to the chronically ill, the disabled, the elderly, the handicapped, and those who live in poverty.

    My prayers have been that the scales will fall from people’s eyes and they will see what they embraced. They have yet to get what they thought they were promised. In fact, they never will.

    Here is what we will all will get, in spades: authoritarianism, bigotry, denial of climate change, destroying families, destruction of the planet and God’s creation, discrimination, fascism, global warming, gynophobia, hatred of the poor, homophobia, increased gun violence, intolerance of a different of opinion, intolerance of people that are different, Islamaphobia, kleptocracy, misogyny, nonpartisanship, police brutality, prejudice, racism, in favor of rape, in favour of sexual assault, in favour of sexual harassment, in favour of sexual molestation, treason, transgenderphobia, white supremacy, and xenophobia.

    The only thing to do is to do what the Founding Mothers and Fathers of our country did: resist the evil. I do so every single day on Facebook at Gloriamarie’s Progressive Stuff, https://www.facebook.com/groups/gloriamariesprogressivepetitions

  13. I’m going to apologize to all the dead babies killed by Planned Parenthood, even though I have never voted for pro-abortion candidates like Clinton and those the so-called progressives support in their twisted sense of compassion for all. I still am part or our abortion culture and need to do more to stop this injustice (without giving condoms to children).

    Think about making such an apology yourself, pastor. Then maybe you might understand why many of us can’t vote for your left-wing darlings who almost without exception are ardent supporters of this holocaust of the unborn.

    • Really? Abortion goes down under Democratic administrations and Dem control of the Congress, but it goes up under the Republicans. And what about those women and fetuses who both die during back alley abortions? You don’t believe in safe birth control either? I don’t know, but according to Jewish teachings, it’s a fetus until it’s born and breathes on its own.

    • Joe, no matter how many times you say the words pro-abortion, it never has and never will be an actual thing.

      I was thinking that maybe instead of just being a voice for the legislation of a female womb you can also speak up for the legislation of a male penis. Fair is fair. Maybe that would get some traction. Seems fair to me since we wouldn’t have all those “inconvenient” babies you speak of without both parts in on the action. It might even help keep all those men who think women want to look at their parts or want it rubbed on them to rethink that past time. Obviously that activity is not against the law right now. Of course rape is against the law and it still happens all the time.

      After we get harassment, abuse, and rape eliminated maybe we can start working on the rising number of women who die in child birth. Then we can move on to fixing the foster care system and maybe the child protection services issues. Then there is poverty, hunger and homelessness of course. So much to do – so little time. See I love children too, especially babies.

      Peace Joe

    • Are you going to apologize for all the dead people who cannot get healthcare, or the refugees turned away because we’d don’t want brown people here? STFU with your false piety. You’re disgusting.

  14. Hi John… I did not vote 4 Trump… but even if I did… I don’t owe you or your offspring anything… that is the most arrogant thing U have ever said…. grow up chap… just grow up and not be a child…

  15. Well, that was just so well said that my heart is racing at the prospect of getting enough nerve to share it (I live in a very red state, MS). I’m so fed up with the level of anxiety he’s injected into my daily life, forcing me to constantly follow politics as though it’s still the big election year, ever vigilant, ever disappointed, ever fearful. I didn’t like W, especially for his false coercion into the Iraq War, & I was routinely embarrassed for our country when he went off script & birthed a new Bushism or proved some level of incompetence with his analyses, but not liking Bush feels like garden variety antipathy for Republican policies compared to the deep down core disgust & fear I feel. This new world order must stop before it’s irreversible!

  16. I really do for feel for the children. I am with you in this. Keep giving them hope, teaching them truth, guiding their way in love.

  17. While I agree with you about the awfulness of where this country is heading and about the wonderful things you will teach and say to all children – no one should ever have to apologize for voting. If more people voted in the right states things might be different now. Or maybe not. Trump is the face of what of America is right now. He is the symptom. Who will be the cure?

    If just loving enough was the cure how did things get so bad that this odious unqualified man beat out all the others running against him. If any other Republican won we would still have these policies that are so overwhelmingly hurtful to average Americans.

    The difference between Trump and other Republicans is that he wants to erect an enormous phallic symbol to his greatness. It will be even “more bigly” than his name in gold 40 feet high. Like any tomcat he will leave this country with his stench which will be impossible to hide or get rid of. Most Americans do not want this and it is such an irresponsible drain on the taxpayer. He is doing this while he and his Republican congress are doing everything to erase Obama’s policies. He knows no one will be able to erase his wall – his giant middle finger to all those who see him who he is and a permanent reminder of his awfulness. His wall will forever show the world America’s arrogance, rejection of all others and pathetic need for “whiteness”. Making birth control harder to access will not guarantee more white babies just more put in harm’s way.

    The Republican congress keeps getting rewarded for not doing their job. This tax cut is, once again, their homage to their mega wealthy donors. Wealthy people to not create jobs – they hide their money or buy more houses or go on more vacations. Corporations have been sitting on their money for years punishing America for wanting a portion of their worth. They could have used that money to educate Americans so they wouldn’t have to whine about not finding adequate help. Every windfall they have received has gone to bonuses. Each time Republicans promise more jobs all we get is a recession.

    Because the Republicans refused to do their job for the lasts 6 years, they are now filling life time judicial positions with their extremists. You would think that the law is the law is the law. Evidently not.

    We know they weren’t doing their jobs because they, in reality, had no alternative to Obamacare or any idea beyond added bonuses to the “get out of jail free cards” of the mega wealthy with their so called tax reform. They have wasted tax payer money for 6 years.

    Surely guns and putting women’s bodies under government control is not enough reason to keep going down this black hole. It is no longer believable that Republicans care about debt, money management or even a smaller government. I am speaking as a person who has actually had to live on a budget for decades. With gerrymandering at the state level they will always have their finger on the scale to tip it their way. We have allowed them to separate and demean all the minorities and then accuse others of identity politics.

    We need to find and elect people who will do their job for ALL Americans. Our children, our grandchildren and their children are our future. We must do our best for them. Anything less is unforgiveable and will destroy this country. The biggest problem is that we are all human and humans aren’t always perfect.

  18. I wonder if future historians of the ancient American civilization will one day consider that we had a President that they are tempted to call Catrumpgula? Who knows?

    However, I have a new post on my blog today that dovetails beautifully with this new main blog post by John Pavlovitz. You must be some kind of prophet John.

    Many Americans wonder how Christian fundamentalists, conservative evangelicals, and other American conservatives could have voted for a Presidential candidate characterized by all the sinful filth that John P. has so adeptly listed above in his main post. The results from some new research at Harvard University and Northeastern University has hit the bull’s eye on why the fundies and other American conservatives think the way they do in pulling the voting booth lever for a man like Trump. In fact, it explains a lot of things about how they think and process information. Take a look at this John Pavlovitz. All you other readers take a look at this too. This is nothing short of amazing—yet it is true—based on the results of this new research. Just click on the following safe link, which aptly lays open the roots of fundie spiritually blindness—and really—all spiritual blindness in this world:

    https://faith17983.wordpress.com/

    Wow!!! That is just amazing !!! Do you folks finally understand it now? This is why the so-called “Christian elect” elected Trump, and this is why Trump could shoot an innocent bystander in Times Square—and his fundie base would still cling to him as tightly as a deer tick. Delusional—you betcha!!!

    The fundies would say:

    “You jist don’t understand thuh thingza Gawd.”

    I would say:

    “No. But I understand the things of just plain nuts—and you guys are clearly doing nutty stuff in the name of Jesus. Electing Trump was one of them—and your fundie religious system is going to fully reap the evil and corruption you sowed in Trump’s name. But Just remember. While you fundies may be nutty as a fruitcake—Jesus is not: “He knows who you are, and He saw what you did in that voting booth last November.” His season is coming up in a few days, and he eats fruitcakes like you for lunch.

    • 55% of Catholics voted for Trump, I’m sorry to say, because it should have been 95% or more considering the grave evil Hillary endorses. However I suspect that 55% figure is skewed by “cultural Catholics” who no longer practice their faith.

      Nevertheless, Trump won the Catholic vote which put Trump in office and I’m proud of that, and you ought to divide your persecution somewhat between the fundies and the Catholics.

      Be fair.

  19. I’m sorry your child has such a cuck of a parent. I am sorry your child will grow up feeling they need to be handed everything. I am sorry your child is more of a man than you.

  20. I’m sorry defeat is this hard for you. Calm your tits and help us ale America great again. Or move to North Korea. I don’t care. No one owes you anything you hyperventilating assnugget.

    • I can see that the power of “The Resistance” is getting to you Mike. Well, it is much more powerful than you can imagine. Jim Davis Adkisson said it well in his not so famous manifesto:

      “If each decent and patriotic American could vote three times in every election, we still could not stem this tide of liberalism that is destroying America. Liberals are a pest like termites. There are millions of them.”

      Just remember. We are everywhere—and our appetite is voracious—and we and our Jewish friends control the most powerful amalgamated media empires in the world.

    • America was great. Then Donald became president. Then America was not great. So yes, we need to make America great again like it was before Donald f—ed it up.

      • The U.S. is better today than it has been since Reagan…
        With just one exception: Obama has divided the crap out of it.
        But who knows… if President Trump keeps working like he is, that may get better as well.

  21. You’re welcome! Thanks to Trump, you won’t have to be purged in the alternate future commie regime for being too white or too male! You get to grow up in a democratic republic instead of a totalitarian distopia! There will be enough food to eat, because capitalism will still reign supreme! G’night, ya little cunts, and grow up smarter than your retard parents!

  22. I did not vote for Donald Trump and don’t want him in office. Our Congress and Senate (the whole “government” of America needs replacing …. No every single one as some as trying to do the right thing but it’s like the little boy trying to keep the huge dam from breaking with one tiny finger.
    We need at least one new party if not two !!

  23. In all of life we have options including how we integrate God in our lives.
    We can Practice the absence of God or we can practice the Presence of God.
    It is next to impossible to practice the Presence of God when we are in a state of fear, angst, hate or complaining.
    We can however fully realize the Presence of God by dwelling on what is right, true and lovely. We can use those powerful motivations to change our world, to focus on what is possible , what makes life better and what creates heaven on earth.
    So, what will be your decision, wallow in absence or delight in Presence in the Now Present moment?
    As has been said; it is impossible to love and hate at the same time!

  24. No apologies or regrets from this Trump voter.😉
    Get over yourself, it’s been a year, you’ll get your chance to try to change it in 2020.
    You are just making a fool of yourself with this BS article and looking liken an obstructionist brat who still can’t deal with not getting your way.
    I hate to break it to you, but people do not owe it to you to vote the way you expect.
    Trump voters don’t feel any guilt over their votes and are not going to apologize to anyone for it.
    Oh, and all of those bad things kids you mention that kids are dealing with today, were going on well before Trumps election. Grab a clue.
    You can blame us all you want, but it is this type of sanctimony that landed a man you hate in the White House.
    It is actually YOUR children
    for whom I feel sorry, not because of the President, but because of the ignorant, self entitled example you are setting for them.
    You can feel free to keep lecturing and screaming out as many insults as you want, and it will be nothing but sheer entertainment.
    The sour grapes you guys have been dishing out for the last year have been so delectably sweet, so by all means, keep them coming!😆
    All the while, we supporters of President Trump will happily sit back, laughing and waving at you with the one digit salute as we continue to celebrate making America great again! 🤣

    • Jenny. I think you’re just upset because the Trump Administration is shot through with scandal, utterly paralyzed—and the Russia Conspiracy noose is tightening evermore around their necks with each passing day. You have the Trump Resistance right where we want you—and it is straight downhill from here to November 2018. Trump will be forced to resign or be impeached like Nixon would have been. The Republicans in the U.S. Senate hate Trump and want him gone from the White House. They will get their wish long before 2020.

    • How would you feel if someone hit one of your kids and when you reported it to the police, the abuser laughed in your face for getting your panties in a bunch because you always throw a fit when something does not go your way. I’m sure you wouldn’t want someone hitting your kids. So if you get mad when someone hits your kids, unlike what you want (for them not to hit your kids), then wouldn’t it be safe to say that you get upset when you don’t get your way too? I think it’s safe to say that if we’re using YOUR mentality.

  25. I’m sorry your dad is so delusionally angry, even if his heart is in the right place.

    I hope you will learn to think for yourselves, and always be objective. Do not base your opinions on what feels good, as much as what you know is actually right.

    If you don’t know what is right, always explore every angle that you can find. Don’t fall for for the “right” vs. “left”, “Republican” vs. “Democrat” traps.

    Always be skeptical when someone tries to tell you someone else is “evil.” Question them. Ask them to provide verifiable facts that led them to such a dramatic conclusion.

  26. I live in Australia and visit Arizona often to see my best friend and I know the hurt and sadness they feel and also the shame, I feel for them when fake news is the truth and the news is a lie it’s not normal but becomes normalized and the line between becomes blurred.

  27. I recently signed up with you as I liked some things you had to say. Your recent “owe your children an apology” was deal breaker for me. I do NOT owe your children OR ANYBODY an apology. Clearly you dislike Trump and act like so many. Talk about Peace and Harmony and Equality and everybody deserves the same. BS. BS BS. You are the one spreading hate, disrepect, negativity and like most liberal elitist, if peope don’t seee it your way, they are bad people. Wrong. You are. Enjoy in your head your Blog. I’m unsubscribing.

  28. You owe your kids an apology for lying to them and making them fear a future that exists only in the hysterical gibberish you call a brain.
    Why are you deliberately terrifying your children for no reason other than you are a fool who believes every nonsensical word that is spoon-fed to you by the mainstream media?
    You, my friend, are an unfit parent

  29. Pastor thank you for putting in words the moaning and groaning of my heart and soul😞 we’ll continue to pray and wait that the unseen mighty hand of God moves and takes this darkness away

  30. You’ve said many things well before, but this one nails it. As a Canadian I am not as directly touched by your leader’s persona and actions. It is indeed unfortunate that his abnormality has to be explained to children. I’ve seen him mock the disabled. I’ve heard him criticize a woman’s appearance to justify his lack of interest. I’ve heard him lie repeatedly to convince others to follow his personal agenda. I am tired of his defenders excusing his actions by verbally assaulting and accusing others. This can only teach children that all behaviors are acceptable if you can find someone else that has done something similar or worse. I never thought I’d still be hearing about Hillary a year after the election, as if her past perceived wrong doing justifies any and all of his indiscretions. These are not the lessons to teach children. In the long run, living the apology may be better than getting one. Now that’s a good lesson!

  31. Thank you for writing this. My husband and I, amongst many others, share the same sentiment. We have an 18 month old toddler and a 10 week old infant. We apologized to both of them when Trump was elected president even though we did not vote for him.

  33. What a load of crap!!! Obama was the dip shit that caused all of this division among the people in the country. You bunch of crybabies need to sit down and shut up and let a REAL president do his job…

    • Right Cristy. He caused all this division by being born black. If he had been born white or if he had just turned white—he would have been perfectly acceptable to you. Yes, I know how much you admire blonde-haired, blue-eyed, white-skinned, firearms-toting, poor-people-hating, red-state Jesus.

    • Who voted for Robert E. Lee? While you brought up the topic of using past “EX” presidents to make the current president look less bad than what he really is let’s look at how the same people who voted for Trump are the same type of people who support nothing but crap.

  34. “Says a being who highly likely voted for Hillary Clinton, the candidate who all the evidence points to having stolen the nomination from Bernie Sanders, who is married to someone who makes Trump look like an angelic nerd in comparison, where Hillary has ongoing scandals, acts of incompetence and dishonesty going back decades where she is responsible for such clear corrupt acts of nepotism like Travelgate and stood by while the horrendous “Waco, TX Siege”, occurred, 51 days of terror that ended in the lives of over 70 Americans, killed by their government. How can people be so blind like the author of the above article?

  35. If you voted for obama or crooked hillary, YOU owe everyone an apology for destroying this country, and attempting to complete the job by putting corrupt criminals in office who were attempting to undermine the Constitution of the United States, and place the dictatorship controlled UN in control of the US.

  36. Get over yourself, it’s been a year, you’ll get your chance to try to change it in 2020.
    This BS article is just making a fool of you and leaving you looking like an obstructionist brat who still can’t deal with not getting your way.
    These atrocities you children are now facing, were a problem long before Trump’s election.
    I hate to break it to you, but people do not owe it to you to vote the way you expect.
    Trump voters don’t feel any guilt over their votes and are not going to apologize to anyone for it.

  37. Go blow it out your ass you sanctimonious twit. Hillary Rodham Clinton is a criminal. I would have voted for anybody other than her. Maybe you’re okay with the systemic selling of the United States for personal gain I’m not. Oh by the way none of the things that you said about Trump reflect reality only the narrative that’s dreamt up in your mind and in the minds of every MSM journalist out there. Your side lost an election now shut up and deal with it.
    Where in the massive screed of crap that you spewed do you explain that you would have to apologize to your daughter for the actions of Hillary Rodham Clinton who’s slut shamed people who her husband raped.

  38. I was reading your post and once again, a virus warning came on. This happened a few months ago and again today. I think you have hackers who are attacking people who read your posts! I am not a computer expert but I think you need someone who can ward off these hackers.

    • Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals hate John P. because he is smarter than they are and because he refuses to bow down in front of their man-made BS.

  39. Whoever you are you’re deranged. Furthermore, it seems to me that you have nothing else better to do then chastise people it must be due to your own incompetence to do anything really significant in your own pathetic life.

    I do not owe your children an apology for nothing. If anything you owe me an apology for putting this rhetoric with no concrete evidence of anything to back up your constant rant.

  40. Pastor John, I think you and I can agree that we should love our neighbor as ourselves: not just the neighbor that looks like us, or thinks just like us, or votes just like us, or even acts just like us — rather we should love ALL of our neighbors. We should also, because of that love through Christ, not condone, let alone excuse, what He tells us is sinful behavior, sir.

    Trump is boorish and brutish in his behavior quite often. There are many assertions that you make against him and his behavior with which I agree are true. And there are many which are new-age “Christianity” wrapped up in leftist-politically-embellished hyperbole. Further, I suspect you know this when you write it.

    Do you think that Hillary would truly have been better than Trump, were she to have been elected our president? Do you think her support for her predatory husband and her personal attempts towards the destruction of the “bimbos” that Bill Clinton preyed upon make her a better person than Trump on this matter?

    Do you think her militant support for the unfettered access to abortion in killing the very definition of the “least of these” innocent humans square her with God’s plan of life?

    Do you think her callous disregard for the safety and security of Americans, such as those left to die in Benghazi, and those jeopardized by her use of unsecured channels to conduct highly classified State Department business makes her worthy of being our president?

    Do you think that her personal corruption in search of obtaining greater wealth and power by selling access to world leaders and businessmen via her Clinton Foundation makes her worthy of leading our nation? If that Clinton Foundation were truly about charity, where is this organization and all of its millions of assets now that the campaign is over?

    Do you think her collusion with the Russians in the Uranium One deal and in working behind the scenes with the DNC to disenfranchise her Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders, means she would care any more for any American that might disagree with her than what President Trump does?

    I know many good Christians that voted for President Trump; people that have spent their lives and treasure helping the least of our brothers and sisters. They may very well owe everyone an apology, but then so too do those that voted for Mrs. Clinton likewise owe our nation an apology, if that is your standard.

    Frankly, we were faced with a choice between two evils for president. Your politicizing this and shaming those that voted differently than you and the demon you chose is so sadly misplaced, Pastor John.

    As for me, while I can respect people of good conscience prayerfully deciding to vote for Trump or Clinton, I could not jump that hurdle and live with myself for having voted for either and therefore I voted for neither of them.

    Shouldn’t we work to bring people back together and find those things in common in Christ that we can do as brothers and sisters to make this a more loving world? Or should we choose the path to castigate others for voting for one evil over another evil?

    I think we should try to live as the best examples of the body of Christ, who strengthens us, by doing what is right so as to inspire our children, family, and friends; and not for our own glory but rather because it is pleasing to God that we live so. Siding with a presidential candidate that dismisses half of the nation as “deplorables” simply because they disagree with her is not how we come together as the body of Christ. Further shaming those same people for their vote, when a vote for Clinton would have been just as egregious and pernicious as a vote for Trump is something that one would think a pastor would know better than doing, sir.

    While I am sinful and imperfect, and yes even hypocritical at times, I am going to strive to work with people different from me whenever I can possibly find that common ground for the betterment of our nation and our world. I think that is what our Lord would want us to do.

    My prayers are with you, Pastor John.

  41. This is completely stupid. The last eight years of Democrat destruction is what caused the problems you are crying about.
    How about you apologize to MY children and grandchildren for the Muslim invasion that is leaving them a hated minority?
    How about you apologize for the massive debt caused by Democrats?
    Or how about you just crawl back into the slime you came out of?

      • Son, I guarantee I know more about U.S. history and World history than you can even look up.
        It’s Communist bastards like you that have damaged this world to the point that White people feel they have to apologize for what they never did.
        You kids will be working for my kids one day and they have people like me to thank for not being Muslim slaves.

    • Bert, can you believe the author of this crappy article is a PASTOR?! I know! Me, too! I was appalled to learn this. Feel sooooo sorry for the people of the church he pastors.

  42. Hey asshole you owe me an apology for Obama and for being alive. Everything you have said here is bullshit. The only problem in this world are progressive liberal pussies such as yourself.

  43. Pingback: Pastor Unloads: “If You Voted for Donald Trump, You Owe My Children an Apology” | BlueDot Daily

  44. John, you are living, breathing proof that God is still speaking. I cannot fully express how much I appreciate your wading into the rushing river on our behalf. I pray for your protection, physically, emotionally and spiritually, every day. You are one of my lifelines, so it’s not as altruistic as it sounds. 😉

  45. I think we all need to get on our knees and pray to the good Lord for forgiveness. We are a mean spirited, hateful bunch. I’m included.

  46. This made me cry (and I do not cry), because it gave words to so much of how I’ve been feeling for the past year. My parents are 2 of those people you wrote this to, and their decision has fundamentally changed the way I see them. I wrote an abbreviated version of this to them the day after the election and we are still working on recovering our relationship. It feels good to know that even a year later, I am not alone in feeling this way.

    • Boo hoo hoo…yet another brainless lefty who now sees his parents “differently” because they apparently hold conservative views. You know, it’s not your parents’ job to honor you but for you to honor your parents. Think about it…by holding the views you do you are breaking one of the Ten Commandments and there will be consequences for that when you meet your Maker. I feel sorry for you.

  47. I apologize that one of my grown children voted for crooked-Hillary. I apologize to him for having failed him in some way that he would embrace such immoral policies.

  48. You could just raise them right with no regard to outside world, because right now, you sound like a kid throwing blame around, while raising kids.

    “I COULD do it, if the election had gone my way.”

    Man up, if you have your kids, raise them, teach them better and stop blaming crap you can’t control.

  50. “Jagged angry nation you’ve created with your vote”?

    Sorry John, that nation was already here. Nobody’s vote in 2016 created it. Your accusational words serve only to fuel that anger. You owe my children an apology for making the nation choose between a mendacious entitled felon and divisive demagogue. So you first. We the people deserve better choices on all accounts. The lack of awareness your screed represents from a man claiming the mantle of christianity is stunning. Please reread John 8:7, and this time strive towards understanding.

  51. The Democratic Party owes us an apology for foisting such a godawful candidate on us. Horrible.

    I voted for Trump because Hillary would have put reprehensible leftist loon federal judges on the bench, ones we’d be stuck with for 40 years. Our country would literally have been destroyed by a bunch of politicians in robes who’d treat the Constitution like a roll of toilet paper. Screw that.

    That was the whole ball of wax for a HUGE number of guys like me.

    The immense increase in my net worth due to the 20+% stock market rise since the election is a welcome side effect. Trump’s 3-4% GDP growth (and maybe more) beats the hell out of Obama’s 1.5%. And it’s going to save this country from Obama’s $10,000,000,000,000 increase in debt.

  52. I have my middle finger raised in condemnation. Nothing is viler than a pretentious, smug, sanctimonious, pretend Christian demanding everyone bow down to its unearned “moral superiority”.

  53. Still angry I see. You are allowing your anger to linger every day. Sounds like sin to me reverend. Why not take the log out of your eye before you look at the twig in my eye? Oh, and aren’t you suppose to love your neighbor as you are to love yourself? Guess that is not working out is it? No apology needed from me but may be to God (God is male) since he has an everlasting love for all Trump voters like myself.

  54. Well, you are to be commended for allowing opposing opinions on your blog. Other than that, though, you really suck at being a political or social observer. 😀

  55. Whoa, whoa, whoa there, Sparky! I think you might want to lighten up a bit. This will help you relax: The President was elected only because his opponent was First Panderer of the US during the ’90s. Anybody else, and I mean anybody else, would have served out the Donald like chipped beef on toast. You, my friend, helped put that woman on the ballot instead of some white knight like, oh, Al Franken. Oh wait. Never mind. Or it could have been a Galahad like Al Gore. Oop, not that guy either, I guess. Well, certainly you could have found somebody — not from Hollywood, of course — but someone other than the corrupt harridan of Little Rock. Meanwhile, the worst thing the Donald ever did to women was to marry a couple of them. Shocking, I know. Rather than raping his employees, like good ol’ Billy Jeff, he treats women on his staff like human beings. Now, you’re probably going to want to cite all the women who have come forward during this sad time to accuse the President of sexual mis-deeds. But there aren’t any, are there? That’s got to sting. Well, good luck in your fantasy world. I do hope your wife gets custody of your children following the divorce. Oh, yes, there’ll be a divorce — just as soon as your long-suffering wife finds out you’ve been sleeping with young chippies for years. Be of good cheer. It will be a positive change for your wife and kids, and you’ll be free to graze the sexual meadows of academe until someone spills the beans and you lose tenure. It will have been a good life while it lasted.

  56. Typical idiot blaming the people who voted for Trump for the things obummer and the people who voted for him are responsible for. Unreal!

  57. Spare us…what a disingenuous pantload.

    Allegations against Trump versus acts by the Clintons. Maybe you should invite Bill Clinton to share a cigar with your kids.

    Typical liberal – everything is everyone elses fault; no personal accountability. No one owes your children anything, no one owes you anything.

    Your narcissistic arrogance to think otherwise is what is truly offensive.

  58. You’re an ASSHOLE , buy your book ! don’t make laugh , you Liberal Trump haters make me sick , crawl back under your rock and stfu !

  59. I don’t owe you or your children anything. It’s YOUR job to teach them…it will be you that teaches love and any other moral compass you possess ….It has never been the job of the government to teach them…It’s time to do your job as a parent…I will NEVER apologize to any of you for my vote!!!

  60. Objectively speaking the bottom line is we are better off with Trump than Hillary. War either civil or with the whole world would have been the outcome of a Hillary victory there is no doubt in my mind on that. The arrest of criminals and pedophiles is now progressing nicely. Rumor 9000 sealed criminal indictments are already filed insied the federal court system and awaiting the mobilization of what will be the single greatest effort to arrest the vast number of sick twisted evil criminals that have been running the world for a long time. So far nearly 4000 pedophiles have been arrested under the Trump admin. Never saw that under Obama and rumor was both he and Hilalry both had that perversion streak in them and were covering for their fellow pedos and the evidence of this is so overwhelming it is beyond your ability to lie and decieve the intelligent people who will dig and do their own research to discover the truth because it is all over the place and there are books and documentary films already so please just go shoveon up you know where if you want to talk back on that issue. Trump is doing the right thing for children and Hillary was trafficking children with a Lady who got arrested with 33 stoeln children in Haiti named Laura Silsby. Google it and do some research and stop getting your news from the MSM only morons do that.

  61. I don’t understand you progressive fascists. You protected BJ Clinton from his misogynism and perjury. Now were are seeing the results of this evil in the misogyny of your dear leaders when hundreds of them are outed as violators of women.

  62. I don’t owe you a damn thing. I don’t even owe you a reply but i’m going to give you one, free of charge. You are a pathetic excuse for an American. You owe me an apology for wasting my time and mistreating paper by putting a book together with your hateful ignorance. You owe words and punctuation an apology for using them in your hateful manner. You owe the people who didn’t vote for the MOST CORRUPT and worst candidate ever by your incessant, nonstop, hateful rhetoric about how bad Trump is. You owe me an apology for thinking your opinion matters more than mine. You owe your children an apology for teaching them that liberalism is a mental illness because you are guilty of spreading your stupidity to them and, potentially, future generations. You owe yourself an apology for being a stooge for the liberals by thinking that your self-righteous narrative actually represents what people believe and feel. Actually, you should just stop writing stupid words and sentences and just get over it; Trump is your president and there’s not much that makes me happier than that..knowing all you whiny liberals can’t function on a daily basis because we have a president who actually gives a damn and puts AMERICA FIRST..not like Nobama or Shillary…they would have turned the reins over to the globalists who would have continued ransacking America and it’s resources. All-in-all…I think you can just keep on doing what you’re doing because people like you will make sure that 45 gets a 2nd term.

  63. The alternative was Hillary Clinton, who promised to declare a no-fly zone over Syria, radically increasing the odds of starting a war with Russia that could end all mammalian life on Earth.

    You owe all mammals on Earth an apology for voting to put us all in such danger.

  64. this was simply one never ending bitchfit by the author. a bunch of parroting sheep on here because the anti-trumpers have no real thoughts they just parrot the ignorance they see on entertainment channels posing as news like cnn and msnbc. now cite some polls that are being created by the entertainment media. these anti trump liberals want anyone who supported trump to feel bad yet they supported the clinton crime conglomerate which had the democratic primary rigged and even had the entertainment media. now cite the russia collusion and i say they are investigating the wrong party. obama claims he knew russia was interfering months before the election but did nothing until after hrc lost.

  65. No sir no one owes you or your children a thing. Typical progressive liberal thinking that everyone owes you something. You raise them to deal with adversity better than yourself.

  67. Actually, Pavlovitz, you probably owe the first church you worked for an apology for the wages you accepted before they FIRED YOU for pushing your gay agenda on their kids…
