To all you Trump voters who think you just voted for the tax cut or the Supreme Court nominations or the death of trade deals or the demise of Obamacare, not so fast. Your vote was a “package deal.” You don’t get to tease out the things you liked about Trump’s messages.

You have co-signed all the hate-filled messages as if you said them yourself. You have condoned all the behaviors of his that you pretended didn’t count. You voted for an America that’s hate-filled, isolationist and driven by narrow self-interest. You voted for dodging taxes, cheating business partners, sexual predatory behaviors and lack of accountability. You voted against clean air, clean water and the quality of life of your children and grandchildren by leaving them a planet in peril.

But you just wanted change? Votes have consequences and should be based on facts, not emotions.

Now we all lose.
