Political Poisoning

I don’t talk “politics” at home much. If at all.

I certainly don’t talk about politicians. So it’s interesting how my daughter has picked up on the Trump hate from… somewhere. Maybe the Roblox gaming videos she watches on YouTube, I suppose. I can’t think of anywhere else.

There might be several reasons for this just showing up now. Her age might be part of it. She wasn’t old enough to be aware of what was going on with the rule of Barack the Great. I do know her “teacher” at kinderprison a couple of years ago worked very hard to indoctrinate Hillaryism into the prisoners at her disposal. I did have a little talk with my daughter about evil politicians– specifically evil politicians I knew a bit better than most— over that episode.

I have a yardstick that I use– if someone is having fits about Trump doing something they would have ignored (or even praised) Obama for doing, I see them as a hypocrite in the throes of Trump Derangement Syndrome. And I see this a LOT!

There are no good presidents; no good politicians.

I have no problem with her hating politicians. I see it as the beginning of wisdom. But, in the post-Trump years, if she doesn’t express the same feelings for the next Bully in Chief, I’m going to have a sit-down and see why.
