You Hate Donald Trump

trumpAbout two years ago, I gave up the word hate. Similar to its cousin love, I found that I was using hate too often and inaccurately. I don’t hate mushrooms, I just don’t eat them. I further found that using hate too often, made me feel negative. To instantly use it as my go-to reaction was too easy and just made things more unpleasant than they needed to be.

So for two years, I have lived hate free.

After long and careful consideration, I have decided to take the word hate out of retirement to say this:

I Hate Donald Trump.

And you do too.

Even if you are voting for him, you hate him. Just think about it.

When was the last time you had to deal with someone who never ever admitted they were wrong? How did you react when your colleague was totally in the wrong, acted foolishly, and refused to take responsibility for his actions, apologize, or simply recognize that he had made a mistake?

Did you like that person?


You shouldn’t have, anyway. People who don’t take responsibility for their actions have no integrity, people who don’t recognize their mistakes don’t grow. Is that what you want in the person running your department or the company where you work? Of course not. Everyone makes mistakes, admitting them and taking responsibility for them takes guts.

When you were a kid if you weren’t a bully, you had a bully. We all did. Like all bullies, ours was a thin-skinned baby. Whenever the tables were turned on him, he literally ran home and got his mommy.

This is Trump. He bullies like a mean-spirited bag of wind, spouting lies against all against him, and when someone snaps back, he yells that they are mean to him or that they attacked him. You can almost picture him running to tell his mommy.

Did you like your bully?

I didn’t.

Trump’s a bully and if you had to deal with him personally, you would hate him.

I grew up with a kid who was a terrible sport. When he was winning one of our street games (hockey, baseball, football) he mocked others, rubbed it in, ran up the score. But the very second he was on the losing side, he complained, accused, pointed fingers, and blamed others. He became a grumpy and bitter sore loser, crossing his arms over his chest, pouting, and then storming away shouting an inevitable, “I quit!”

Every time Trump gets outgunned in a debate or in any way, he points fingers and makes excuses. Nothing is ever his fault. It was that guy’s fault or this lady’s fault. He would throw his mother under a bus to save his own ass or to pathetically and desperately attempt to make himself look better. He has done exactly this to his own running mate, people outside of the political game, and several people in his own party.

Do you like the back stabbers, sore losers, and bad sports in your life? I sure as hell don’t.

If Donald Trump was a person in your life, you would hate him. Because most people don’t like a self-serving blowhard bully who pathologically lies, blames his mistakes on others, and never admits his missteps.

I wouldn’t want to spend five minutes in a room with him, so I will say it once more and then I will put the word hate back into retirement. This time, I hope, permanently.

I Hate Donald Trump. And so do you.

      Tiffany, I came across the theory, that as a child of your parents you have for sure the perfect antidote against them. You just have to find it within yourself, use it and live your life. If you find it – and that is probabely your life job, you will help more then just yourself. You would become the cure agains people such as Donald Trump, that is so important. You are such an important person. Do not give up, take every opportunity during your therapy and anytime which could help you to find your antidote. When you find it, make it world wide known. And I am not kidding I realy mean it. You could save all reasonable people by saving yourself in first place. Good luck

    I LOVE you for how you HATE Donald Trump and how you hate to hate…very nice post…. will put aside word hate myself, like this idea. Will make it real rightaway with: “I don´t unswer emails!” instead of “I hate answering emails!” . Not all emails obviously…

    By the way makes me think, if all of us are bullies or victimes then YOUR posthuman teen playing the Earth game created a very clever plot: never ending vicious circle of bullies and victimes, because one creates another. I don´t think he´ll quit his game… that´s probabely interesting to watch…
