Dear Secretary Hillary Clinton,
In the 2016 election, I voted for Donald Trump. I didn’t believe your warning about the Trump-Russia connection; I was wrong.
@HillaryClinton I would like to apologize to you, wish I have listened to your warnings about Russia before I voted for Trump, you were right.— David Weissman (@davidmweissman) July 16, 2018
I am sorry. I called you an “enemy of the country.” You were not.
I blamed you for the tragedy in Benghazi because it was politically expedient. I was wrong.
I believed Fox News that you were corrupt, with every decision made in self-interest, and every judgment call woefully dangerous. Only now do I truly understand the meaning of dangerous.
I chanted “Lock Her Up,” I screamed “Crooked Hillary,” I verbally tormented your supporters.
I believed the liberal mind to be weak and naive, yet ignored my own failings.
I allowed fear and the hollow satisfaction of identity politics to eliminate my ability to think critically. I didn’t think at all. I was one of the sheep.
You care about children and families. You care about the middle class. You care about America’s place in the world. I didn’t care about any of that. I voted for Donald Trump. I am sorry.
To make amends to my country, and fellow Americans, I will thoroughly research candidates and I will no longer believe conservative clickbait articles, including Fox News. Many of these media organizations have spread lies about what liberals believe in and what they fight for. When I found the truth, I accepted liberal values.
I will be encouraging voters to vote blue this election and in 2020, and if you do decide to run again, you will have my support.
