Senator Reid’s comments on President-elect Trump:
"I have personally been on the ballot in Nevada for 26 elections and I have never seen anything like the reaction to the election completed last Tuesday. The election of Donald Trump has emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America.
"White nationalists, Vladimir Putin and ISIS are celebrating Donald Trump’s victory, while innocent, law-abiding Americans are wracked with fear—especially African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Muslim Americans, LGBT Americans and Asian Americans. Watching white nationalists celebrate while innocent Americans cry tears of fear does not feel like America.
"I have heard more stories in the past 48 hours of Americans living in fear of their own government and their fellow Americans than I can remember hearing in five decades in politics. Hispanic Americans who fear their families will be torn apart, African Americans being heckled on the street, Muslim Americans afraid to wear a headscarf, gay and lesbian couples having slurs hurled at them and feeling afraid to walk down the street holding hands. American children waking up in the middle of the night crying, terrified that Trump will take their parents away. Young girls unable to understand why a man who brags about sexually assaulting women has been elected president.
"I have a large family. I have one daughter and twelve granddaughters. The texts, emails and phone calls I have received from them have been filled with fear – fear for themselves, fear for their Hispanic and African American friends, for their Muslim and Jewish friends, for their LBGT friends, for their Asian friends. I’ve felt their tears and I’ve felt their fear.
"We as a nation must find a way to move forward without consigning those who Trump has threatened to the shadows. Their fear is entirely rational, because Donald Trump has talked openly about doing terrible things to them. Every news piece that breathlessly obsesses over inauguration preparations compounds their fear by normalizing a man who has threatened to tear families apart, who has bragged about sexually assaulting women and who has directed crowds of thousands to intimidate reporters and assault African Americans. Their fear is legitimate and we must refuse to let it fall through the cracks between the fluff pieces.
"If this is going to be a time of healing, we must first put the responsibility for healing where it belongs: at the feet of Donald Trump, a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate. Winning the electoral college does not absolve Trump of the grave sins he committed against millions of Americans. Donald Trump may not possess the capacity to assuage those fears, but he owes it to this nation to try.
"If Trump wants to roll back the tide of hate he unleashed, he has a tremendous amount of work to do and he must begin immediately."
If Senator Reid actually believes that Trump, that vicious, vile, disgusting pile of pigshit, would sincerely try to heal the open wounds he has created, then Mr. Reid does need to retire.
Trump’s word on anything is worthless. He’s a liar, a con man, a thug, a sexual predator by his own admission and the testimony of a whole bunch of women. He is morally repugnant, mentally disturbed, and physically repulsive. He chose to empower himself by ripping this country apart. He’s gutter scum and the sooner he’s sent back there the better, better for the nation, better for the world.
As for his hatchet-woman Omarosa Manigault, who fervently believes we should bow down to this piece of scum, it’s plain to see that she never left the plantation.
Yeah, class act all around. That’s what the stupidity of the American electorate has brought us. In all the interviews with Trump voters I’ve heard, not one – not one – has demonstrated the slightest bit of intelligence regarding politics. They want a Savior – some even say that out loud. Yeah, he’s going to save them all right. The women are on their knees and the men are bending over, all of them ready to be saved. Lotsa luck with that. Too bad you’re taking the entire country down with your stupidity, your moral vapidness, and your utter inability to hear and to see and to understand anything other than Honey Boo Boo and the intellectual vacuum of Kardashianism.
Sorry, Harry, but what you want to see is just not going to happen. Maybe, just maybe it will, but if and only if Pigshit Trump can use it to put money in his pocket.
