Has anyone else noticed themselves being more short-tempered and cruel since the election and inauguration towards those in their families who supported Trump? At Christmas, one of my uncles said he voted for Trump and I told him that I thought he was smarter than that. Another uncle also proclaimed his support for Trump and I said “I didn’t think you were smarter than that.” Today my mom and I had a heated discussion about Trump and his likely impact. Later in the evening she made an off-hand comment about being brain-dead that late in the day, and I replied “I agree, except I think you are all the time.”

This might be the nastiest thing I’ve ever said to anyone.

And I don’t want to apologize.

I hate what this election has brought out in me.
