If Donald Trump were your father would you be proud of him ???

If Kellyanne Conway was your mother would you be proud of her ???

If Katrina Pierson was your mother would you be proud of her ???

If your parents were political surrogates, and lied for a living, would you be proud of them ???

I don't know how some of these people can look their children in the face.

I have never seen a more despicable group of people.

14. Why is his hair more blonde now than it was when he was younger?

It usually works the opposite way

3. I have tried to understand Ivanka's adoration of her father.

Two things - Stockholm syndrome, and money. That's what it comes down to for me.

7. Really?

 

My dad was a complete asshole. He was still my dad and I still loved him.

You don't get to chose your parents and they are always your parents regardless.

15. your parents help form you

you don't know what it would have been like with other parents...odds are there would be fundamentally different things about you, how you think, your personality, etc. There are probably some things that would stay the same, nature v nurture and whatnot, but we aren't who we are solely through the force of our own will, we are shaped by our environment and our parents.

17. you give her too much credit. she is most likely very much like he is.

She is also the favorite child .

But remember people working for her said they didn't get things like maternity leave .

6. Maybe, Yes, No, Maybe.

 

Kellyanne is quite possibly the best spinner I have ever seen. I am not fond of her candidate but there is no denying she is damn good at her job.

If she worked for Clinton you would likely love her.

As far as trump well I despise him but then I was not raised by him. I suspect if I was my priorities would be different. So maybe.

Katrina is just a deranged lunatic so no I would not be proud of her regardless.

12. You are too kind.

She doesn't spin, she lies.

You are incorrect.

There are people who work for Clinton that lie, and I do

not respect them.

11. If Trump were my father I'd change my name and move to Antarctica.

Or maybe Costa Rica or Denmark or Canada or New Zealand. I'd do everything in my power to never let on that I was related to that vile puddle of dog vomit.

13. Who knows?

If any of those mentioned were my parent, I'd be a very, very different person, because I'd have grown up in very, very different circumstances.

Sure, any of us can glibly say we wouldn't be proud of them, but that's because we didn't grow up in their spheres of influence.

16. Some people are rational...

Others can rationalize anything.

My father - a career electronics tech and a very rational guy (usually) - voted for Reagan and Bush I. Then in 1996 he voted for Clinton on the grounds that he had worked out well the first term. He's voted Democratic since then, because he found Bush II distasteful, McCain dishonest, and Palin alarming. He would not vote Trump for dog catcher. But he had to be brought around to voting FOR someone instead of against someone. And it's been a slow battle to get him to renounce his racist points of view (the worst part of that was dealing with snarky taco comments when I was dating the Mexican-American woman who became my wife). I'm proud of him because he will listen, admit when he is wrong, and thinks. We don't always agree, but I'm proud of him. He's nothing like Donald Trump. My father instilled in me a strong sense of civic duty and patriotism.

My mom - a technical editor and typesetter - is a Trump voter through and through. She was always the calm, collected one who taught me patience. I have no idea who she voted for in past elections, but she has walled herself off from thinking in this election. She's afraid of the gays in bathrooms, Hispanics everywhere (in spite of being very warm to my wife), and wants the Muslims out. Nothing I say gets through to her. It's disappointing, since my mother instilled in me a sense of diplomacy and conversation. I can't be proud of her current positions.
