This sums up a conversation with anyone that hates or disagrees with POTUS. One can never have a sensible, honest nor responsible discussion without being called out for all those big words they come up with.
Literally every conversation I've had with a Trump hater about the upcoming election:

I am writing this as a way of expressing how I felt and looked at my life whilst you were growing up and not being part of your earlier years.
When one watches those programs about lost family or friends etc you often hear that saying "Not a day goes by when I don't think of them" how I wish it were true for me but no not every day but quite a few.
You were, however, always in the back of my mind especially at family time, birthdays, Christmas and Easter.
The five months I was with your mother two things I do not regret, having you and the life's lessons I learnt from the time I spent with her. I was a lost soul, continually searching for I have no idea what. I did try to keep in touch but that became difficult as I was told you were moving around a lot.
When you were about 6/7 years old child support suggested I should have shared custody. It was around this time I had a work injury and was in a battle with Workcover regarding the said injury. I was seeing a psychologist at the time and I mentioned the child support situation. Our thinking at the time was simply if I were to come into your life at that time the effect on you would not be the ideal one, hence I stayed in the background.
As you turned 14/15 that is the time I started thinking about you more and more.
In January, your birthday and Australia Day (family time) February there is Valentine's day (does my boy have a girlfriend?) Along comes March to September (Footy season) and in a few of those months was your stepsisters birthday, Easter and several other family events. October there is Halloween, November is Guy Fawkes, and December another stepsisters birthday, Christmas and of course New Year's Eve and so we begin again.
I always wondered if you were happy.
I guess I actually did think of you quite often now that I have written it down. There are many other things I want to say but cannot find the words, maybe leave it for another time.

It should be noted that the previous weekend in Chicago ten black people were murdered by other black people.
Why was there no outrage?

It has now been a week since the lockdown of New Zealand and so far we have hardly changed the way we go about our daily lives.
No takeaway shops are open so I make my own. There are no retail shops to buy things like clothes, electrical goods or entertainment stuff. There are some online shopping places however they are only to purchase essential items.
Karen and I have always kept to ourselves so we have been training for this very situation since 2009. It isn't that we are not sociable, we are it is just that so many people out there are inconsiderate, selfish fucking idiots. Panic buying at this time is the perfect example.
One of the downsides to lockdown is the constant bombardment and repetitive information from the so-called media, who take great delight in telling us that we are going to die. They are creating a pandemic of anxiety and fear within communities with the way the sensationalize every detail of this pandemic.
Why I need to know how many people in Italy or elsewhere either have CV19 or have died is beyond me. There is nothing I can do about it, I live in New Zealand, and all I want/need to know is what I can do to keep me my family safe, which would be to use the one thing lacking in today's world that is commonsense.
We have stopped listening/watching news items that mention what is going on, rather we visit the government website and listen to the Prime Ministers' daily briefing to get updates but turn it off once those idiots they call reporters to ask imbecilic questions.
We did join a few social media sites within our community to keep up to date but once more the ignorance, stupidity and the sheer lack of basic intelligence as well as abusive comments made sure we now stay away from them as well.
So week one is done and I am standing in line at Countdown supermarket. They will be shut on Good Friday I wonder if there will be panic buying on Thursday.
Of course, there will. SIGH!
