I'm sick and tired of "liberals" lustily cheering for the declining health and premature death of people who can't afford health care. What the fucking fuck is wrong with you? Everybody should have access to affordable health care because we live in the richest nation in the history of the world. Doesn't matter if they're stupid or motivated by spite or they voted for the wrong person or believe that the world is flat or whatever.
Health care for everybody, period.

White person here. I watched quite a few ugly arguments spill into my Facebook feed when my white friends tried to convince their white relatives to not vote for Trump. My Trump-voting father is 70 years old, does anyone actually believe it's possible to change the mind of a stubborn, privileged 70-year-old man who's been listening to right wing radio for the past three decades? Trump voters are completely unreachable. Trying to change their mind is a complete fucking waste of time; we need to find ways to contain them, sedate them, defang them, and quarantine them instead. Or if that fails, go to war with them.

Trump voters obviously give zero shits about the safety, security, and survival of everyone in this country who isn't white, straight, native-born, Christian, able-bodied, and adherents to the correct religion. So why the fuck should we be concerned about their feelings at the dinner table? Voting for Trump was the ultimate gesture of "Fuck You I've Got Mine" — an attitude that is completely antithetical to harmonious bread-breaking.
