To my family who chose Trump over me: Was it worth it? (CNN article)

(CNN)"Was it worth it?" That was the poignant and wise question a family member posed on Facebook after Joe Biden became President-elect. It's a question I've grappled with for four years now. More specifically: Was your blind loyalty to President Donald Trump, a person you've never met, worth burning our family to the ground?


Mirroring our real-life relationships, Facebook connections among our family members ended suddenly after Trump's inauguration. We disagreed sharply when it was reported that Melania Trump would remain with the couple's young son in New York City to finish out the school year instead of moving with him to Washington DC. The additional costs for Secret Service protection in New York were significant.

We argued about it on Facebook until I wrote these two sentences: "If Michelle Obama had announced she was going to remain in Chicago with Sasha and Malia while running up the tab on the taxpayer-paid Secret Service protection, all the while charging them rent, I would have heard you bellowing all the way down here in Atlanta. You're a hypocrite."

The last thing I remember was the top of your head figuratively coming off, IN ALL CAPS as you fired off an incendiary reply. As I hit reply on my response, I received a message from Facebook informing me my comment wouldn't load. That's when I realized you had "unfriended" me...

It's really well written and the ending especially is very good. I wish I could post the whole article.

It was Richard L. Eldredge who chose to mark - silently or openly - his, "It's Trump or me," line in the sand. Richard L. Eldredge is to blame for his family division, not Trump and not his family "daring" to vote as they believed best.

What a responsibility-dodging Moh-Ron! Hey Richard L. Eldredge!

Short answer: Yes.

Given Eldredge's manipulative-coercive attitude, it probably will be.
