Truth and Consequences

“He speaks the truth.”
“He tells it like it is.”
“He’s honest.”

Will he deport 11 million undocumented workers?
Of course not. Thank goodness.

Will he ban all Muslim immigration?
Probably not. Thank goodness.

Will he make Mexico build a wall?
C’mon, seriously? Thank goodness, no.

Will Hillary Clinton go to jail?
Nah. Thank goodness, or really thank the law, which seems to have already spoken on this.

Will he repeal Obamacare?
Not the important parts. Thank goodness.

I’m waiting to see how quickly your story changes from, “He tells the truth.” to “He just said that to get elected.” When that happens, please go look up “cognitive dissonance,” then get back to me to explain why you *really* voted for him:

Will hate crimes against marginalized people(s) increase?
Probably. Because his rhetoric enables it. I use the term rhetoric generously here; go read Marc Antony (no not that one), if you want real rhetoric.

Will the siege on women’s reproductive rights worsen?
Yes. Because his actual cabinet and SC choices point to his real agenda.

Will environmental degradation accelerate?
Yes. Because his actual cabinet choices point to his real agenda.

Will progress on sustainable energy decelerate?
Yes. Because his actual cabinet choices point to his real agenda.

Will our wars of aggression multiply?
Well, let me see… should the world put up with this shit any longer?

These were your not-spoken truths, the truths of the GOP. They were self-evident, but not actually spoken.
