Dear people who spent eight years demonizing Obama at every turn and are now tweeting me to "give Trump a chance" on day 1: Trust is earned.— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) November 9, 2016
Can’t we all just be friends now?Generally speaking, this is a fair argument to make . . . But it’s particularly frustrating hearing it from people who voted for a man like Donald Trump.Remember this is the guy who has repeatedly suggested Barack Obama wasn’t born in America and isn’t a legitimate president — the same Obama who stepped up to a podium today to congratulate Trump on his stunning electoral college victory.Did Trump ever apologize for his repeated efforts to delegitimize the first African-American President? No, he used it to fuel his political career and convince enough voters to buy into this conspiracy, which led him and the country to this dark place.No those same supporters who egged him on want us, the majority of voters who rejected Trump on Tuesday, to roll out the red carpet and show the guy some love.. . . As someone who witnessed the treatment of President Obama by the very people who now demand we bow to President-Elect Trump, I’m just not there yet.
