This whole thing makes it easy for me to see why people struggle to have empathy for Trump voters. When hydro rates don’t go down and other bad shit happens I’m going to feel empathy for people who I know didn’t vote for him. The idiots who thought ford would solve their problems though, when their rates go up I don’t think I’ll be able to refrain from rubbing their faces in it. Mostly because they are the reason my actual friends will struggle. It’s like seeing all the trump voters losing their jobs over the tariffs, I can’t feel bad for them when they did something that hurt people I care about.
