Explain so a Five-Year-Old Would Understand – Take 4

While listening to the radio today, there was a pundit talking about the upcoming election. They were discussing who would be voting for whom. This particular commentary, focused on LatinX voters, was in line with another discussion about whom black men, and men in general, might vote for president. Both talked about the number of non-whites who actually might vote for the current administrations re-election. I will admit my jaw did drop after hearing these discussions and now I’m just so confused.

Please explain it to me so a five-year-old would understand.

How can any Latinx even consider voting for the current man in the Oval Office, giving him four more years? This is a man who called Mexicans rapists and murders. This is a man who separated families from one another at the border who were seeking asylum. This is a man who lost some of those separated children whom now can never be reunited with their parents. This is a man who sends children back to countries without any family members ready to meet them. This is a man who has placed children that look like your children in cages and inhumane living conditions. How can you even think about voting for four more years of this man?

How can any black man vote even consider voting for the current man in the Oval Office, giving him four more years? This is a man who got in trouble for refusing to rent to blacks at his apartments. This is a man who took out an ad calling for the death penalty for the Central Park Five who were innocent children. This is a man who has stated white supremacists are good people. This is a man who has called Black Lives Matter protests riots. How can you even think about voting for four more years of this man?

How can any man, regardless of color or social status, even consider voting for the current man in the Oval Office, giving him for more years? This is a man who has walked in on naked teenage girls. This is a man who has had over 25 women come forward about him sexually harassing/assaulting them. This is a man who said it is okay to grab a woman by the pussy when you are famous. This is a man who thinks women, like your daughter, your sister, your wife, your mother, are essentially objects to be debased and are here for his sexual pleasure.

Please explain to me why these voters might vote for four more years of this man because I just don’t understand how it serves them to vote for another four years of this type of behavior by anyone, let alone a president.
