“It was a severe shock to my entire essence and my beliefs in the order in the world… And to think that the man who had abused me so viciously and with impunity for over a decade was now running the country.“
“I haven’t done any interviews since he’s been elected…I haven’t been on television doing interviews since he’s been elected… It has taken me a full year to integrate the reality of him being a president in a way that I don’t come across as either so full of rage that no one can hear my words, or so sad that I can’t articulate the level of pain.”
“I did a lot of therapy, I wasn’t in shock in anymore; as much as I am devastated, disappointed, disheartened, and depressed by the reality of it, I wasn’t in pure panic mode like I was that day and that week. There are people who tell me, ‘Oh it’s going to be another year, another two years,’ and I seriously worry whether I personally will be able to live through [his presidency] and whether the nation will be able to live through it and survive.”
