Don't hate and laugh at people who are regretting voting for trump

Waffles731

I'll admit I was having a jolly good time laughing at them and saying serves you right, then I came across this.

Don't hate and laugh at people who are regretting voting for trump

And I wasn't laughing anymore. The realization that I had been laughing at people like this man, well I'm ashamed of it. These are peoples lives. I voted for someone (not hillary and never trump) who I think actually gives a damn about other human beings. That doesn't make me any better than trump, who mocks disabled reporters

Don't hate and laugh at people who are regretting voting for trump

We shouldn't mock the Coal Miners who are going to die because they'll lose insurance as black lung is a pre-existing condition. We shouldn't mock people like Bob up there. If we do that, WE ARE JUST AS BAD AS TRUMP.

These are people with hopes, dreams, families, fears, and a soul. The fact that I was mocking them and calling them dumbasses and saying serves you right, is shameful.

I try to remember Hanlons Razor in times of trouble

Don't hate and laugh at people who are regretting voting for trump

These people aren't bad people. These are people who were tricked into voting against the interests of the lower and middle classes. That doesn't make them evil, it doesn't mean they deserve what is happening. These people made a mistake, we've all made mistakes. The fact that theirs effected us all doesn't mean its still not a mistake. The pain they are going through deserves the sympathy we'd give anyone else. If we are going to get through this, we can't alienate and cheer at the pain of innocents. That's not what we stand for yet its what I was doing and for that I am deeply ashamed.

Addendum.

Its still perfectly okay to laugh at the idiot below though

    I feel 110% okay with disliking those people. And do you know why? THEY KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN. They KNEW he wanted to scrap the ACA and social programs! How many MONTHS have I been on here yelling about it?

    Did they REALLY think their boat was any different than mine? Because I sure as hell didn't. This is the real life example of taking a puppy and rubbing its nose in an accident. Is it the BEST thing? No. Will they learn from it? You bet they will.
    Is this still revelant?
    • Waffles731

      actually A LOT of people were too stupid to realize that the obamacare and the ACA was the same damn thing.
      The republicans conned them and these people are realizing they fucked up instead of doubling down. Don't hate them for it, these people got conned and are now with us

    • The only people doubling down are liberals with same messed up bullshit that cost them the election

    America you are not alone. Here in the UK we have also had a Homer Simpson moment DOH!!! In both cases the result of the vote is democratic and lawful, but let us not forget Adolf Hitler was democratically elected as the chancellor of Germany in the 1930's. careful what we wish for, it may just come true!
    Is this still revelant?
    • nalaa

      that's not entirely true. Hitler never got a majority vote. Well until he got 99% but for obvious reasons that doesn't count.
      But no there were three elections 1932 (or was it 4? ) In all of which his party failed to get a majority. In the first he got 30% I believe and slightly more in the second. But never a majority. No one "won" in 1932, germany to this day normally has coalition governments. But general Hindenburg got close to a majority and because the nazis won a large number of seats he decided to form a coalition. And then unfortunately he died, making hitler chancellor temporarily just that he never got back that power

    • Waffles731

      We are the only people in the western wrold who made a worse poltiical decision last year

    we shouldn't laugh at anyone's misfortune in realizing a fault they made, whether it's in politics or otherwise. if our country really goes on a down slide the direction some believe the trump administration might take us then we are all going to suffer the consequences.

    It's because people are one issue voters, granted you may not find a candidate that aligns with everything you care about. But this is what happens when only focus on one thing. So many of my fellow veterans only cared about Mathis being SECDEF, military pay raises, homeland security, more troops and equipment and now it is affecting everything else in their lives and they are stunned

  • chrissykerdock
    okay i'll play the devil's if you lived in chicago where 7,000 people get killed each year why would you be opposed by the national coming to chicago? also for all this written about Trump he hasn't been president for even 1 week yet... if you really knew anything did any of you watch/read all of o'bama's moves a lot of them were outright treason against our constitution... far as women o'bama pushed more into poverty than you could ever think by reducing full time to 30 hours.
    • Waffles731

      No, you must be thinking about Reagan, the high treason committer and creator of the taliban and al queda
      As far as the so called executive overreach Trump has done more executive overreach in one week than obama did in 8 years

    • Because Martial Law rarely protects everyone. I live in Chicago and am completely against this.

      Yes, I have been jumped by gangs, to be "jumped" means where like a group attacks you, its an unfair/outnumbered fight.
      But I'd rather be attacked by gangs than cops, because gangs can at least be persecuted by the law. Its very hard to have justice when your attacker is a cop.

    • @BuchitaBuchys if it's that bad then maybe that should be exposed... if trump is going to send in troops it won't be the cops

    I didn't like Trump or Hillary (I voted for a 3rd party guy who had a.01% chance of winning). I don't hate or laugh at anyone who regrets voting for Trump, but all I can say is, "I didn't create this Frankenstein!"
  • RedThread
    I think it's so wild how some people didn't see some of this shit coming down the pipe. Did they try to at least stay the slightest bit informed on the issues? There are pros and cons to all candidates but it's up to us as voters to try to minimize the cons that could really jack up our lives.
  • Phoenix98
    Still happy I voted for him, also these people who are regretting their decision must be blind because is doing exactly what he said he was going to do. So if they never agreed with what he was going to do which they knew full well to begin with then why did they vote?
    • Waffles731

      'So if they never agreed with what he was going to do which they knew full well to begin with then why did they vote?'
      The world can be explained by two things, people are stupid and people are crazy

    • Phoenix98

      Both true but if that's true in their case then do they really have any right to complain what they voted for knowing full well what he was going to do?

      I mean if you see a nail on the side of the road and then go over and step on it purposely knowing full well it's sharp and probably rusty do you really have any right to complain about the nail?

  • John_Doesnt
    It's like watching a kid discover Santa didn't forget about his house, it's just his dad is a deadbeat.
    These people still knew that Trump stood for other horrible things, though. They knew he was a sexist, homophobic failed business tycoon. Only now when the things they personally care about are threatened do they actually change their mind.
    They are still the same selfish people who only care about politicians when it benefits them.
  • spuitkaas
    As someone who doesn't live in the US (but followed the presidential election) I never really understood how a man like that can get that many votes. Everybody here I know thinks Trump is an idiot. Even our media thinks so. So we're just watching here hoping Trump won't screw over NATO and I'm hoping the populistic party here won't get the most votes next elections.
    This video pretty much explains it all.

    • spuitkaas

      Can you explain why she's evil? I'm probably missing something because I don't know the whole history with Hillary. I thought her plans were pretty good.
      I also liked Bernie Sanders. He seemed like a nice and caring guy, but he was too socialistic to become president of the US. They're just not ready for it. Maybe here in the Netherlands he would've more of a fair shot.

    • Waffles731

    If there were some way I could only laugh at the people who I told trump would be a disaster and they denied it, I would. But all those people have mysteriously unfriended me in the last week.
  • Red_Arrow
    Not laughing at them, but not feeling sorry for them either. Trump changes his stories more than he changes his underwear. So it is obvious he is lying a huge part of the time. So they were not-so-bright to trust him. Also, they seemd pretty happy about what was going to befall others, and only regret it when they find out they, too, are getting hit. I can't feel sorry for people who don't care when others get hurt, but cry when they are also jurt by the same things.

    Frankly I don't really see why people have regrets?
    As far keeping campaign promises, donald trump is in the 90th percentile of world leaders.

    He said he would build a wall, well he's trying. He said he would ban muslims from immigrating and again, he's trying. And what people seem to be bothered with is that he said he would get rid of Obamacare and well is working on that too.
    I think he also made it abundantly clear that he is unfit in every way to be president. I don't know what people were expecting?
    • i think he's great. he's the best president in my lifetime.

    • There is a lot of psychology here, people don't wanna be left out. If their friends or family are voting for a certain party they will vote to not feel left out or shunned for picking someone else. Then we have the shared responsibility dynamic. Because a bunch of people are voting for him, if anything bad happens they don't feel solely responsible for what happens. It is like that video on world star where the girl was being raped and everyone filmed it, there was well over 100 people there so no one felt responsible for helping her. If there was like 5 they would have at least done something.
      Then we have people trying to justify their actions, it is like being in court and you have that 13th juror who won't agree with the others. So you try everything to sway them because that 13th juror makes you look at yourself and people don't like being wrong

      @spoonman2014
      So what are you saying? That people got peer pressured into voting for Trump? I don't think so. Voting is anonymous for a reason. besides even in Texas about 48% voted for Hilary Clinton. That's a very large minority.
      I don't think fear of social exclusion or otherwise peer pressure is reasonable here

    Does it matter? Give them a hug a cry together? Gather a support group and call it Survival Under Trump Initiative (SUTI)?

    The senate dictates the rules so write to your senator and ask them to do something. Write to your governor and your mayor, each state can support its own ACA if it can. Plea with them Republican because they want to scrap the healthcare all together. Your lives depend on it so you should actually do something to save it.
  • KiaTate
    Why should I feel sorry for them? They wanted that racist asshole as president they got it. Now they can suffer with everybody else.
  • Tabbie
    I think they deserve it to be honest. Obviously nobody should be denied healthcare because of not being able to pay. But Trump blatantly ran on a platform of racism, sexism, and islamophobia, and these people who voted for him clearly didn't care enough about the POC, women, and Muslims who they knew would suffer under his administration. If they only regret their vote when it negatively effects them but don't give a shit when it's other people getting hurt then they deserve some mocking at the very least. I'll feel sorry for them when they're actually willing to give back some solidarity.
  • VirginiaBeachBum
    I have to disagree. This is a decision they made after ignoring hundreds of comments from him over the years which gave a very clear picture of the type of character he possesses, or more appropriately, lacks. This was not something foisted upon them without their consent. They bought it, let them live with their buyer's remorse. I'm not going to mock them, but they won't find any sympathy from me, either. I do welcome them back from the darkness once they realize their mistake. But that is something they may have to learn by a hard lesson on their own.

    No Sympathy, they blindly followed him when what was coming out of his mouth was dogshit. All I'm saying- their guns and bibles will protect them from the bears and the liberal media.
    Did I like Clinton, not really, didn't really care for her, but she was qualified for the job, not him and they dragged her in emails which turned up nothing.
    How they managed to trick themselves that a rich man cared about them was their own fault. They're reaping what they sowed.
    Do they deserve it? No.
    Do I care? No

    What the propaganda media didn't want you to know is that the hand motions and voice that candidate Trump used when referring to this reporter are the same as he has used many times prior to that when referring to other people who do not have disabilities thereby establishing that his intent was not to mock this reporters disability, but rather to mock his disingenuous reporting.

    Here are some of Trump's previous uses of this method:

    I don't regret voting for him. Just because I voted for him doesn't mean I agree with everything he says. That would be like saying someone that voted for Hillary Clinton is automatically a pro-choice. We all have our reasons and President Trump visited my area and spoke among vet and military folks. Let's stop pointing fingers and just wait and see what happens. It is not a one-man show, he does not have all the power, and at the end of the day Congress really holds the key to what happens more than we realize. And everybody on this whole Muslim ban propaganda needs to understand and realize that if you go to their country MOST, AGAIN, MOST NOT ALL of them would probably kill you because you're American but you want to let them in without going through stricter and more vigorous investigations on the people who need to come here. I'm all for having a safe haven for people, but we need to know who the hell we're letting in our house.
