A number of people have asked me to explain how I went from anti-Trump to EXTREMELY PRO TRUMP, so I'm going to do this one time. lol.

My introduction to the thought of Trump as a politician came around 2014. My best friend mentioned that she thought he might run for President.

I laughed out loud.

May 2015, Dr Ben Carson (one of my childhood heroes) announced, and I was ALL IN.

Then - June - y'all know what happened. Donald Trump descended the golden escalator and changed politics forever.

I laughed out loud again.

"What a joke!" I thought.

I have old emails of arguments I had with my best friend - me trying to convince her that Dr Carson was the way to go, and her trying to change my mind on Trump.

(We remained best friends though because we're adults.)

Anyways - more and more people that I knew jumped wholeheartedly onto the Trump train, and I thought that I was surrounded by insane people.

I watched him win primary after primary with a feeling of utter disbelief.

What was wrong with America?!

My little brothers all developed YUGE man crushes on the guy. I was constantly rolling my eyes at them.

I didn't get it.

"What do people see in him?! He's rude, he's obnoxious, he's racist, he's stupid ..."

See, at this point I believed that the media told the truth.

But then, I started to notice a lot of people in the media slandering Trump supporters - and that bothered me. Because I knew a ton of them, and exactly zero of them were racists, homophobic, toothless, dumb, or any of the other stereotypes that they were portrayed as.

When my Mexican father went to a Trump rally and came hope with a Trump sticker on his phone case , I rolled my eyes extra heavily - but I had to find out what everyone in my life was seeing in this guy.

So I started researching.

"HE SAID MEXICANS ARE RAPISTS!" no, he said SOME of them were rapists. Facts are not racism.

He also said some of them were good people.

Also true, and vastly unreported by the media.

"BUT HE MOCKED A DISABLED REPORTER!"

He mocked a reporter who happened to BE disabled - with the same exact motions he used to mock multiple non-disabled people. He wasn't mocking the disability, he was mocking the man. Nice? No, but I started to see why he was fighting back

"BUT JOHN MCCAIN, WAR HERO!"

Yeah, he slammed McCain - AFTER McCain said derogatory things about his supporters.

Well, hey, I thought. At least the guy stands up for his supporters.

Slowly, it dawned on me that maybe someone who fought this hard would fight this hard for US.

"BUT HE'S A RACIST!"

I learned that he had sued the city of Palm Beach in order to allow black people into his club.
I learned that he had recieved awards for contributing to inner city (mostly minority) communities.
I learned that he had given jobs to thousands of minorities.

I learned that he had sheltered Jennifer Hudson for free in one of his buildings when her family was murdered.
I saw him hiring a black woman on the spot when she asked him about jobs.
I saw him promise a sick hispanic woman that he would take care of her son after she died.

"BUT HE'S ANTISEMITIC!"
this is probably the most ridiculous lie about him -
I learned about the orthodox Jewish boy who needed to fly cross country for medical treatment. He couldn't fit on a regular plane with his equipment. Trump sent his own plane to fly the boy for free.

"BUT HE'S A MISOGYNIST!"
When the NYT almost apologized for the slanderous hit piece they put out on him, after the women they interviewed said that they had been misrepresented, I really started to realize how much the media was lying.

I came to realize that Donald Trump the Monster was a character created by his political enemies - and that Donald Trump the man, for all of his ACTUAL faults, was not a monster at all.

During this time of awakening, I also kept taking those online quizzes that are supposed to tell you who you aligned with politically. I kept getting "you agree with Donald Trump on 99% of issues."

At first, this annoyed me.

But I started actually watching his speeches and listening to HIM, instead of what the media said about him, and I kept finding myself agreeing with almost everything he said.

And despite the fact that I still wasn't sure if I could LIKE the guy - he kept making me laugh.
I started watching the GOP debates when it was down to the last 3 or 4 - and I found myself wishing I had started watching earlier.

And slowly, I began to think "maybe he wouldn't be so bad. at least he's not Hillary." I still didn't like him - at this point, my best friend and I were still arguing about him - but I was coming around, although I didn't want to admit it.

When the Access Hollywood tape came out, it really bothered me.
No, not the tape - I understand what consent is.
The fact that it was an obvious political hit job was what bothered me.
I found myself defending Trump, which I had never done before.

2 days later was the 2nd debate with Grandma Death.

A lot of people weren't expecting him to even show up.

When I saw him show up with BILL CLINTON'S VICTIMS, my jaw hit the floor. Holy chutzpah!

Again, I thought, "we need someone to fight this hard for our country."

And then, during that debate, he uttered the greatest line of political debate history - "Because you'd be in jail." - with perfect timing and delivery, and my last defenses crumbled.

He had my heart.

A few days later, I went to my first Trump rally. I took my mom, my brothers, and some of my brother's friends. I went into that rally as a closeted Trump supporter; I came out as a full-blown proud Deplorable.

By election day, I couldn't have been more excited to vote for him

I was ecstatic when we won, but my expections weren't super high - I was just glad she lost and I thought it would be entertaining.

But he's been so much better than I expected.

Because he DOES fight for US.

Just like he promised - we're winning again.

And it's been SO FUN.

So I'm (obviously) a mega fan now, and will most likely remain so for life. He's a once in a lifetime type of President.

I'll tell little kids about him when I'm old.

And that's the story of how I fell in love with Donald Trump.

The end.

I'm sorry you feel exactly the opposite of the items I mentioned.
