Divorce That Trumpkin!
Divorce That Trumpkin!
Just when you’ve seen what you believed to be the height of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) assery this year, what with the Hitler comparisons and the calls to boycott any establishment that carries any brand having to do with any Trump family member, or even one that fails to condemn Trump loudly enough, along comes this Derpasaurus Rex.
Jennifer Wright doesn’t just hate Trump, she’s so completely unnerved, unhinged, and unbalanced by his presidency, that her advice in Harper’s Bazaar to all of you out there who are married to Trump supporters is: GET DIVORCED!
Divorce that Trumpanzee! Get rid of them! They’ll never understand you or appreciate your angst! Screw your vows! Ain’t nobody got time for that!
See Jennifer hysterically believes we’re living “on the very verge of the second dark ages.” I’m assuming by “dark ages” she means “the Early Middle Ages” that… uh… brought on the dawn of the Renaissance after the fall of the Roman Empire, that saw an end to vicious Roman slavery, that ushered in agricultural advances and farming technology, flourishing arts and literature, and saw an end to some seriously bloody Roman warfare. Not that there weren’t any wars during the Middle Ages, but the Romans pretty much had a constant war boner until the costs ruined them.
Granted, compared to today’s standards of living in the developed world (and a lot of the not-so-developed world), what Jennifer calls “the dark ages” were pretty dismal, but in reality, they weren’t so horrible… unless you’re a progtard who is prone to histrionic fits of TDS and has little to no knowledge of history.
Jennifer – like most progtards – probably hates religion (unless it involves subjugating women, cutting off parts of their genitalia, and stuffing them in burlap sacks from head to toe, as well as beheading thine enemies), and maybe that’s why she’s got a huge lady hate stiffie for the “dark ages.” After all, the Church became dominant in the Early Middle Ages, and that brought about some changes that “enlightened” liberals like Jennifer ought to love. OK, the Church wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows, but still…
The rise of Christianity, while admittedly resulting in a lot of people being set on fire, also saw a dramatic increase in charities. Almost immediately after the church gained a foothold in Europe, they started introducing a widespread system of charity that distributed food, clothing, and money to those in need. Perhaps not by coincidence, the concepts of goodwill hospices, hospitals, and shelters for the poor were also invented during the “dark” ages, paving the way for the public health care system.
So now that we know Jennifer is a somewhat overwrought, historically illiterate, intolerant harridan, who thinks that preventing transgenders from serving in the military (when there are rational reasons to prevent those with gender dysphoria from serving in the military) portends the coming of the “dark ages,” why should we listen to any advice she gives on dating, sex, or relationships?
But we should also understand the mentality of these self-aggrandizing shrews, who believe you are so beneath them, that you’re not even worth the work it takes to put into a marriage. Jennifer and her ilk obviously believe they’re superior to you Cro-Magnon Trumpkins, and because they’re so much smarter and more sophisticated than you, they shouldn’t have to tolerate your very presence in their lives.
The woman who is kissing her husband over the smoldering argument embers also remarks, “How could I explain how vulnerable I felt? I couldn’t. But I tried. And he tried to understand. And we went round and round in circles. Him, unable to see the human element of my arguments.”
God, that sounds exhausting.
I’m going to save you three years of therapy where you and your partner try to “agree to disagree.”
If your partner is a Trump supporter and you are not, just divorce them.
You know what really sounds exhausting?
Putting up with sneering harangue from a nagging shrew like Jennifer Wright.
You know what else sounds exhausting?
Being lectured by someone who implies her values are so superior to yours, even as she advocates the end to your commitment to one another and gripes about the ever-appropriate end to Kathy Griffin’s career after her foul tribute to ISIS, because MISOGYNY! And if you don’t care about the people this screeching harpy cares about, you’re obviously a person with substandard values (who is being scolded by a virtue signalling, presumptuous, overbearing gargoyle).
Why do I get the feeling that this snotty Park Avenue elitist wouldn’t know values if they jumped up and bit her in her gin soaked crotch?
Fact is, people, relationships aren’t easy. They’re work. They’re based on open communication and understanding. Yes, there are times you won’t agree. There are times your partner will turn to you in bed and whisper lovingly, “taxation is theft,” and you will get angry instead of turned on. (What! Am I the only one who thinks that’s HAWT?)
Relationships are arguments and debates – sometimes political, and sometimes social. Relationships can be burnt dinners, unwashed dishes, disagreements about who should be doing the dishes this time around. Relationships are working to understand your partner and resolve your differences in constructive ways, because if you make a commitment to one another, that means something – at least to those of us with values. Those of us with no values think marriage is just something you can toss away, because your spouse supports someone whom you consider an ignorant lout who somehow got himself elected to the highest office in the land.
Believe it or not, it’s possible to dislike the President, but support at least some of his policies. Believe it or not, you don’t have to admire his “grab her by the pussy” comments from 20 years ago, while at the same time agreeing with the withdrawal from the pointless Paris Climate Agreement that has no enforcement authority, and which most companies don’t need to be environmentally conscious anyway, because green technologies have become less expensive, more effective, and more desired by shareholders and customers, and therefore it’s smart business to use them.
But hey, I guess my values are different than Jennifer Wright’s. I’m sure my husband is forever grateful for that!
