Campaign officials stress they are not taking the outcome of the election for granted. But Clinton and her team have begun thinking about how to position their candidate during the postelection period. Long one of the country’s most polarizing political figures, Clinton has begun telling audiences she’ll need their help in healing the country.
“I’ve got to figure out how we heal these divides,” she said in a Friday interview with a Tampa radio station WBTP. “We’ve got to get together. Maybe that’s a role that is meant to be for my presidency if I’m so fortunate to be there.”
All due respect Madam President, but no, you don’t have to heal shit.
You and your party were not the ones out there screaming about locking up political opponents.
You and your party were not the ones tongue-kissing Putin and talking about the upsides of Saddam Hussein.
You and your party were not calling for the murder of journalists, using Nazi terminology or the word “cunt” as a comma.
You don’t have to heal nothin’.
Once and for all time, the onus of political healing is on THE PEOPLE WHO FUCKED UP. This country did not “become” divided because of “both sides” doing it. This country did not naturally develop a culture of political obstruction like a cold front rolling in, with nothing to be done but bundle up, and no one to blame but the gods.
This country’s political climate and culture were deliberately vandalized over the past four decades by one group of people determined to seize power and keep it at all costs. They refused to confirm qualified judges just because. They said feeding poor people was like keeping stray animals. They accused people who wanted to give other people health care of being Dr. Mengele and called our first black president an illegitimate foreigner. They openly admitted to pandering to people who hate them almost as much as they hate Democrats, and acted like they deserved some kind of award for surviving their own stupidity.
They’ve been driving around the national neighborhood waving flags and yelling FUCK ALL LIBTARD TRAITORS for 15 years now and we’ve had to pretend not to listen to it and say nice things like, “Hey, we love this country too” while they throw beer cans full of piss onto our lawns. We are under no obligation at this point to listen to anything they say.
We don’t all have to come together. We don’t all have to unite. We don’t all have to heal. Here is what “has” to happen.
Republicans have to lose. They have to lose the White House and both houses of Congress.
And then they have to apologize.
And then they have to sit down and shut up and let the party that DIDN’T NOMINATE A FASCIST SEXUAL PREDATOR do its fucking job.
They do that, and America will function as a country, and people will get fed and the lights will stay on as much as they ever have. Sure, lots of pundits will have a sad, and maybe there are nice Republicans who will have a sad, but things will work. The president does not function as national therapist and the job is not to have everybody feel good.
First of all, it’s impossible. They are going to fight Hillary on every single thing, and that’s the ones that don’t want her dead or aren’t openly supporting a man who wants her dead. They’re not going to “come together.” They’re not going to “heal the divide.” The divide writes their paychecks. It’s not in their interest to join hands for the good of the country.
Second, just fuck this. We have given Republicans time and again opportunities to act like human beings and all they did was nominate Donald Fucking Trump and endorse him and stand behind him and act like if they just made faces while he farted into the mic that would be enough to buy them out of purgatory. They’ve had half a hundred chances to be people and they blew every fucking one so no, we don’t have to heal. We have to win.
And if Donald Trump doesn’t want to concede, oh well. He can say whatever the fuck he wants. He can’t stop the inauguration. If she needs extra lawyers’ fees I think the Internet is good for it. He’s free to yell and scream and stamp his stupid feet and if anybody asks Madam President for comment, she’s kinda busy running the country at the moment, thanks very much.
