Dear GB

Dear Great Britain (and the rest of Europe),

Forgive us our ignorance as our ignorant seem to speak louder than the rest of us. Please allow me to convey to you from the very depth of my being that I do not want the man we now have as a soon-to-be president to be in charge. I fear for the next four years and how the world will come to view the farce that is this country. I understand why he won, but that doesn’t mean I like it. I ask, then, that you bear in mind that not all of us unanimously put him into the White House, or, in fact, anywhere near it. I beg your forgiveness even as I embrace the beautiful sarcasm in response to this ignorant woman’s claims.

Sincerely,

A Mildly Intelligent American
