Had the family Xmas celebration today/tonight.
It ended horribly.
Got into a huge fight with my oldest daughter’s husband. He started vilifying Mueller. I asked him, nicely, to please stop. That the discussion would turn ugly if he didn’t. He persisted. He said Mueller was crooked as hell. To quote him, ‘Mueller is as crooked as they come.’
I went off on him, and basically told him to get out. Very loudly, very ugly. Yes, I snapped. They all left.
I’m sorry, but I will not sell my soul to keep my family together. I truly feel that it’s come to that.
This has been a year coming, and I’m sorry if fell apart at Christmas, but I asked him to stop his shit talk, and he wouldn’t. In fact, it just made him basically double down on it. It falls on him.
Still, it sickens me that it’s come to this. This is what Trump does. He divides us. It’s his goal, and at least at this, he is winning. For now.
But dammit, I’m tired of just listening. Of not sticking up for what I KNOW is right, and what I KNOW is wrong. I will not normalize this hideous turn in our history. These next two weeks are going to be …. awful. Our country is at a cross-roads. I will not sell my soul for Trump. Not for anyone. Not even family. This is a moral issue for me.
/end of angst for today.
