Before we start, let’s get one thing straight: I love Oprah. I am a big Oprah fan. I’ve watched her show, listened to her podcasts, joined her book club. I’m all about Super Soul Sunday and Dr. Phil and the OWN network. I think Oprah is an enlightened, kind, and intelligent individual.

But in this case, I just can’t. As in, I literally cannot handle people talking about how “selfish” and “horrible” and “divisive” Hillary Clinton’s new book is.

You know what is selfish and horrible and divisive? The president supporting Nazis in the United States. Getting in a pissing match with North Korea. Ending DACA. Denouncing global warming. Continue reading

Thank You, Trump…

Before you click that “x” in the corner of your screen, please keep reading and know this is NOT that kind of post.

I’m a registered Democrat although I have voted and always will vote for issues over party. I proudly and almost tearfully voted for Hillary Clinton, and I do not believe that Trump’s values are my values. In a sense, I’m #stillwithher and every single woman who marched—in the flesh or in spirit—on January 21. Continue reading
