Discussion Thread: Trump Dread

[Content Note: Bigotry; anxiety.]

I'm hearing (and feeling myself) a lot of anxiety and anger about Donald Trump's candidacy. Not even necessarily about the possibility he may become president—although that, too—but about just his candidacy and the hatred and violence his rhetoric and policy are inciting.

And I've read a couple of articles lately about couples in which one of them supports Trump, which is devastating the other, and I know that lots of people are experiencing conflict with family members, friends, and coworkers on social media and sometimes face-to-face.

So, if you need to express feelings of stress, anger, regret, fear, frustration, whatever, about Trump's candidacy, his potential presidency, and/or the strife you're experiencing because of interaction with his supporters, etc., here's a place to do it.
