In 2012 he said the electoral college was a disaster for democracy. He encouraged people to take to the streets to protest Obama's reelection. So what were you saying republicans?

Read up on Radical Acceptance. It could help you adjust in a healthier way, for yourself.

He did say the electoral college was a disaster. Not the riots you claim

Yeah and he deleted his tweets about it.

This is not at all surprising though. Get used to it. Whatever reality he needs in the moment becomes his truth. It is what he has demonstrated since he entered the public eye back in the 80s. Why is it people won't believe him about that?

Because it hasn't impacted them...yet.

Well then let's just not listen to the EC this time as per Trump's instructions.

And that includes radically accepting the reality of our president elect?

Praising our election process a day after denigrating it as rigged?

Promising to drain the swamp yet filling his team with lobbyists and Washington insiders?

Deleting any mention of banning Muslims?

Not suing the women he promised to sue after the election?

Quietly settling his Trump U case instead of fighting it like he promised?

Good, maybe that's one of the things he will change :-)

I'm quite familiar with DBT thank you. I have accepted that mr trump is our president. I believe we live in the greatest country in the world and our elections are free and fair. Am I saddened? Absolutely. Do I sincerely hope he makes a great president? Without a doubt.

And I accept that he probably won't. That he is who he is. That as a member of society it is my duty to fight for what I believe in, respect that others do no share my beliefs and accept that something is deeply wrong.

I was just wondering if you radically accepted the truth of this man. All you did was deflect to an article. I have my answer thanks.
