Abby's Posts for 'Donald Trump'

  • Continuing Hillary's Work

    Tuesday, November 8, 2016, started out as a great day. At 6:45 AM, I eagerly jumped out of bed, brushed my teeth, and put on my “Hillary: Smashing the Glass Ceiling 2016” t-shirt and Rosie the Riveter socks. Once I got to school, I was too excited to focus in any of my classes. During lunch, I took some cute pictures with my friend who was also sporting Hillary apparel, and confidently voted in my school’s mock election (Hillary won with 73%).

  • A Thank You Note

    I have to admit that it’s extremely hard for me to write this. The past 24 hours have been a roller coaster of emotions, and I don’t quite know how to articulate what I'm feeling.

     

    At this point, I think it’s pretty clear that I love, love, love Hillary Clinton. The past 18 months of my life have been thoroughly Hillary-themed. Every article, essay, or paper that I’ve written for school has been about her. She has been at the center of my conversations with friends and family. She literally has found her way into my assignments for even art class. Hillary is my inspiration and my role model. I’ve never looked up to a public figure as much as I look up to her.

  • Trump and Women

    (I had the idea to write about Trump and his awful misogyny. I opened my computer and clicked on this blank doc. As I wondered how to begin this post, it struck me that I wrote a similar one a few months back. It’s so depressing and enraging to think that Trump gets worse and worse every single day, and that this man could be our president in just five weeks.)

  • Trump's Taxes

    Sometimes I wish I could attend a town hall or small rally for Trump. Not to support him, of course—so that I could stand up at the end and ask him, “WHY HAVE YOU NOT RELEASED YOUR TAX RETURNS?”

  • Trump's Failed Visit to Mexico

    Yesterday Trump decided to visit the last place you’d expect: Mexico. Surprisingly, he didn’t go to stay at a lavish Trump resort and spend millions on a luxurious vacation—he went to meet with the Mexican president, Enrique Pena Nieto, presumably for no purpose other than to give off a “presidential” air.

  • What Happened, GOP?

    We’ve all heard a lot this past week about the “Hillary email scandal.” Now, we all know that Hillary’s emails have been at the top of the news. Most people, like myself, frankly are tired of hearing about this—especially since the FBI declared that there was nothing further to investigate in the emails. So, why does the GOP insist on dragging this issue back up?

  • After Orlando

    On June 12, 2016, Americans woke up to horrifying news. When I turned on my phone and checked social media, my whole feed was full of news about the mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. As the day went on and the story slowly unfolded, Americans learned of a staggering 49 deaths and 53 injuries caused by Omar Mateen, the gunman who opened fire at a gay nightclub in the middle of the night.

  • The Misogynistic Monster

    It’s time to discuss how awful Donald Trump is towards women! Let’s jump right in, shall we?

    Trump has been known to label women with extremely derogatory terms. “Fat pig,” “dog,” and “bimbo” are only some of the words he’s pulled out of the dictionary to belittle women. He notoriously stated that Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her...whatever” when she asked him tough questions in an interview. Ughhh. He has used phrases like this to insult any woman who takes a stand against him—whether it’s Megyn Kelly, Rosie O’Donnell, Cher, Bette Midler, or others.

  • Hillary is "Heartless"? Think Again, Trump

    The NRA recently endorsed Trump. Surprise, surprise. Trump was endorsed by the organization single-handedly responsible for putting guns in the hands of those who should not have them. In the speech he gave to the NRA, he called Hillary “heartless.” Oooookay, Trump. Let’s take a look at how incredibly wrong and off base this statement is.
