When I sat down to write this letter, I suddenly realized that I hadn’t looked at your Twitter feed in over two months. Amazing, isn’t it? I feel reborn. Consider for a moment that your flash in the pan antics have grown so dull to me that I, a feminist liberal, no longer care about you.
Am I complacent? Absolutely not. But I have finally accepted that your words are “told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, [s]ignifying nothing” (thanks, Shakespeare). No one can do or say anything to “fix” you. Have you felt it yet? The subtle shift? The lessening of interest in your presidency? People no longer care about your golfing trips, or your insensitive words to grieving parents, or even the notes you hold in your hands to remind you what an empathetic person would say. Sure we see and hear you, but look at you as a joke. We’ve come to accept that this is the new norm. I must say that it’s a relief to finally stop fighting the fact that you are this country’s president.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret, one about which not even Fox & Friends will tell you: you’ve already been replaced. That’s right, replaced. It came to me whilst watching the footage of the recent gun control march. Your “I’ll-keep-saying-and-doing-crazy-things-and-people-will-become-acclimated-to-my-insanity” has worked. Unfortunately for you, not in the way you planned.
You see, people are no longer paying attention to you. They’re too busy watching local and state elections and counting one upset after another for the status quo.
Most significantly, children are marching on the streets and standing up to the NRA. They are taking over the airways, the social media platforms, they are talking against you and your cronies and all those immoral people who are destroying their planet, threatening their lives, and ruining their futures. They hate Facebook; they don’t care about Twitter. Those platforms are beneath them, and they’ve moved past them to bigger and better ways to connect. They are committed to change. They are, and will be, voting.
If you have any sense of self-preservation, you and your racist, misogynistic, money-grubbing NRA puppets should quietly move out of the way.
You are no longer relevant.
P.S. I said I stopped fighting my disbelief that you were elected, but I haven’t given up the battle. I vote in every election, but more importantly, I vote with my wallet.
