A Letter to Mr. #Trump: You've Got My #Vote, The Locker Room, Moving On, #Debate #Trump2016by Ellen DuBois on 10/09/16
Dear Mr. Trump,
We've all heard the comments. Do I like them? No. Do I think you disrespect women? No. I'm a woman and can clearly see this was just trashy, locker room "guy talk" I didn't need or want to be privy to. Once the press got ahold of it, boy did they run with it. They're spinning it to death and sadly, that's what the press does. Did your comments shake my belief in your ability to turn this country around and get it back on track? No. I felt like a fly on the wall in a men's locker room when I heard your comments from nearly eleven years ago. You're certainly not the only man who talks to other men like that behind closed doors. I'd love to see any man or woman, especially those already holding positions in office, expose some of their private conversations to the public. Don't think that'll happen! Enough said. Moving on, the following is a comment I sent to your team after taking an email survey about what matters: tonight's debate. This is what I said and I maintain my position:
"You will earn the votes of those on the fence, and perhaps some who think they're in Hillary's camp, when they are able to cross the bridge from fear into faith. Faith in you and your ability to handle anything that comes your way, (including Hillary's attacks), in a confident, strong, unshakable and 'Presidential' manner. People are afraid on so many fronts, they can not be afraid of you, (the 'temperament' thing that keeps coming up). Strength and a calm demeanor diffuse fear. People need to believe you are the change they have needed for so long. They need to not only know but believe you can and will Make America Great Again. Go get'em!"
Sincerely, Ellen DuBois
