I know you don't know me, but I hate you and everything you represent. I see no reason to hide that.
But a part of me does, in theory, understand why you feel the need to twe(more)et your own legacy (all caps), and belittle anyone who would dare to suggest that there might be shades to the picture you paint.
It's really petty when someone interjects themselves into a situation they know nothing about, and hawks blatant falsehoods in an effort to undermine the efforts of someone whose political ideology differs from theirs. People who do things like that are really pitiful, aren't they?
Anyway, I understand why you feel the need to control the narrative. You have to believe that you've been held back, or else the minuscule, laughable, insignificant nonsense you've accomplished with all your time, wealth, and opportunities would be a pitiful joke. Right?
You have to tell yourself that brown people and gay people are degrading "our" values and holding "us" back. Because if (in some crazy alternate reality) it turned out that their values were actually more egalitarian and representative of public opinion than your own, you would come across as one of the most ignorant and ludicrously out of touch presidents in modern history. RIGHT???
Who knows. If you're really lucky, maybe you'll be out of office before you go to jail. One can only hope. But regardless, history will not be kind to you.
I know that doesn't ease the difficulties of the disenfranchised right now, but of that I am quite sure.
I just hope that deep down, a part of you knows that, if we ever manage to make progress in the coming decades, it's despite you, and not because. (less)
