Gidget Just Doesn't Get It

Another post in a potentially long series of airhead actresses (I'll let someone else handle the actors) who can't grasp the Trump victory: Sally Field Still Coming to Terms with Trump Win: ‘I Just Don’t Understand It’
Four weeks after Donald Trump’s stunning victory over Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, Sally Field still can’t understand how the billionaire Republican businessman pulled it off.

In a heated interview on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show this week, the 70-year-old actress said that she joined Twitter the day after the election in an attempt to make sense of Trump’s win.
I have a soft spot for Sally, for all those sappy movies.
“If you look at his past, if you look at his history, there is no evidence that he can do one single thing that he says he’s going to do,” Field told Handler. “He has shown to be everything that he accuses and has accused Hillary Clinton of being. It is now evident he is all of those things, every single thing that he accused her of.”

Field said she doesn’t believe that everyone who voted for Trump is a “bad and horrible” person, but she just can’t understand how he won.
 It's so comforting to know she doesn't think half the voters are bad people.
“I want to know what other people are thinking,” the actress said. “I want to know why they voted for this man who does not stand for anything.”

Field also lamented that Trump won the Electoral College but lost in the popular vote: “I don’t understand why they call this a democracy and yet the people are not getting the representation that they voted for.”
Maybe that's why Benjamin Franklin said "A Republic, if you can keep it" when asked what kind of government they had created after the Constitutional Convention.

  1. The Most Unintentional Hilarious Drivel Ever Written By Any Person EVER

    Writing for Wapo, Stephanie Land, bint-supreme, says that the election of Donald Trump has caused her to cease looking for a man. This scary new world, it’s left her with no desire to introduce someone new into her and her family’s life.

    Not now. Not at this time. They have to hunker down and stick together and all cuddle and cry.

    BTW - Well, the good news is Donald Trump’s election may have caused some progressives to stop procreating.
