2016 U.S. Presidential Election: We Just Want It Over

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email

It’s been a grueling, traumatic, and exhausting 2016 presidential campaign.  And I am not talking about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.  I’m talking about us, the voters.

We’ve never seen so much vitriol, demagoguery, nastiness in this campaign.  And I’m talking about Donald Trump.

It seems like a bad dream.  Wake me up when it’s over.  But let me vote and let them count my vote.  And, when I wake up, Hillary is president.  Remember the ending of the Roger Rabbit movie?  I’d imagine the day after the elections, when Hillary wins, the election chaos will be over, the muck will have been washed away, and Trump’s wall of lies, misogyny, hatred, and bigotry will have been breached.

President Hillary Clinton! That’s all folks!
