Put the Ugliness Behind Us

“He’s was man of seeming respectability and l really did admire him at the time,” Brenda said. “But after he launched his campaign, I had no idea that he would turn out to be the way he did.”

“I tried to give you fair warning,” Chris said. “He came from a background of extreme wealth and privilege, and as time elapsed, it became clear that he was not anyone who would have ever set foot in, or perhaps even heard of, soup kitchens. Empathy was not his strong suit and I think we all dodged a bullet when he lost the election.”

“I just wish he’d acknowledge his loss and concede the election,” Brenda said. “Then, maybe, we will finally be able to put this ugliness behind us.”
