Confessions of the secret suburban Trump moms

I have always thought of myself as someone who is honest with others. That’s one of the main reasons I struggle with the secret I have been forced to keep for the last four years: I voted for Donald Trump in 2016. And I will vote for him again in 2020.

I’m that voter the pollsters consider ‘enthusiastic’. Unlike some of my friends and family who hold their nose and vote for Trump, I cannot wait to cast my vote for the man I believe is the best candidate for the job. As an accountant, I see the country as just another big business to run. And if you run a successful business, you take care of your people. You are compassionate and you create a sense of loyalty, but you ‘teach them to fish, so that they can feed themselves for a lifetime’. I do wish Trump would pause before he speaks at times (who can forget when he turned to Dr Birx and pondered injecting disinfectant…seriously?) And, yes, I agree that he should not be allowed to have Twitter. He’s worse than my teens with his lack of social media self-control! But, I think the liberal elite and their fervent allies in the mainstream media have been set on a path to destroy him since he shocked America by winning the presidency. His words and actions are twisted, taken out of context, and pounced on by the mainstream media (looking at you Washington Post!) which thrives on any nugget that supports their narrative. It’s disgusting. I strongly disagree that he is a racist and inhumane, but try explaining that to other DC suburban moms who absolutely despise him and assume we all feel the same way.
