It is quite possible that I am the one who is brainwashed as my sister told me last night. I innocently asked her if she still believed that Trump won the election and she told me that it is still under investigation and that many votes were not counted and some people were locked out of the voting pools. Well, all of that was news to me as I don’t watch FOX news, so I told her that there is no proof of any of these allegations and she said that it will come out but it takes time. As far as I know, every voter fraud claim that Trump and his lawyers brought up was thrown of court.
I was eating dinner when my sister called and I didn’t tell her that she was interrupting, but I was bent on making this call short, as my sister can go on and on sometimes, but while my steak was waiting for me, I was going to make sure that this untimely call was not going to last. I usually avoid talking politics with my sister, as we are on opposite ends of the spectrum, but it amazes me how Republicans still listen to all of the Trump nonsense. She got mad at me and said that I was brainwashed and unwilling to listen to the truth. I never heard any truth, as all I have been hearing were lies and false claims of wrongdoing that had no evidence to back up these allegations and it is about time this ended, so our country can go on with more important business.
We are in trouble now, as the Iranians are gathering ships in the Persian Gulf, people are dying by the thousands every day and Trump plays golf. I told my sister that Trump never wants to help anybody but himself and she said, “If that is the way you are going to talk with me, then I will hang up”, which she abruptly did. What do you think, should I call her back and apologize for acting rational, or would it be better for me to sit in the corner and take a time out? It is time that we all step out of the Twilight Zone, get back into reality, admit that there is no Santa Claus, that professional wrestling is fake and Trump lost the election. Any help that you can offer will be appreciated, please make a comment below.
