I can’t remember the last time I skipped voting.
I think it’s important to make my voice and opinions heard, regardless of whether or not I’m a huge fan of the candidates, measures, or propositions.
This is not a political blog.
I don’t write about my political beliefs, although I do occasionally let my distaste for certain politicians be known.
I have a few friends who have a different political persuasion than me.
And honestly, I have found that NOT DISCUSSING POLITICS is the best way to stay friends.
But sometimes I JUST HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING.
And for that, I don’t apologize.
I have at least one friend who is to some degree a Trump supporter.
The other day he posted on his Facebook page that he was never going to watch Saturday Night Live again because a cast member made a joke about veterans.
I think the joke was in poor taste and missed its mark.
I don’t watch SNL nor do I plan to.
However, I found it HUGELY ironic that my friend felt this was worthy of a boycott while still supporting a man who joked about sexually assaulting women.
Grab them by the pussy.
It’s just locker room talk.
But heaven forbid someone make a bad joke about veterans.
I’m not excusing the veteran joke.
It was a bad joke and other castmates have spoken out against it.
However, if you’re going to get outraged about things people say, then I think that outrage over someone bragging about sexually assaulting women is not misplaced.
If we generously ASSUME Trump was making a joke, I personally think both “jokes “are distasteful and worthy of my spite.
