I told him that he had elected Hitler. I am going to apologise for my language right now, because I am fucking furious.
A couple of minutes later he rang me back. I think he thought that he was going to paper over the cracks.
I was having none of it and let loose. I told him that his vote had probably ruined my children’s future. Climate change is a big issue for me. Not to mind the other fuckery they will inflict on the world.
In the end, I was the one who said I don’t want to discuss politics, because I knew it would poison our relationship. I have visited him many times – well four or five times. He lives in NJ.
I won’t be visiting him again.
