In February, I took the pledge to spend a month not discussing Sarah Palin, and frankly, it was wonderful. I no longer felt the need to respond to every word she uttered, event she attended or video she posted on her website or facebook. I stopped taking her seriously, and it was good. And since that one month moratorium, I haven’t really felt much of a draw to cover her antics. It’s almost as if I got caught in the wave, and once I was out, I no longer felt the tug of the undertow. I was free.
Now, I’m making a new pledge — I’m breaking up with Donald Trump. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and it’s not me, it’s him. He’s too demanding, too needy, too self-centered. Everything is about him. He’ll do anything for a little attention.
And I still think it’s all a publicity stunt, anyway.
So, here it is. Just as February was a month without Palin, May is a month without Trump. Just like the my preschooler, I’m no longer giving into the tantrums and the crazy demands. He’s getting a time out.
He’s had his moment in the sun with the birth certificate.
He’s made it to the top of the presidential polls.
He’s had his chance to appeal to the conservatives by bashing a woman’s right to choose, equal rights for GLBT, and ceaselessly attacking the president over everything from health care to whether he really should have been in an Ivy League School.
This was his day, and now it’s done. I’m with GLAAD. I will be Tuning Out Trump.
