Are you broken? Do you feel like the world has ended?
Fear not, you are not alone.
The women of Mamamia, along with a few friends, have rallied together to share their feelings and debrief about the Trumpocalypse.
How did this happen? How do we talk to our kids about Trump? What does this say about the world?
We have no idea. So we did what we always do: We talked.
You can listen to the special episode of Mamamia Out Loud: The Trumpocalypse, here:
Mia Freedman – Co Founder and Content Director
“I’m feeling heartsick. Absolutely shattered. I feel sick for what it says about our culture, that people have voted in this creature, that they’ve said yes to racism, bigotry, ‘build the wall’, ‘lock her up’, ‘Trump that bitch’, that’s what America has voted for.”
Kate Spies – Former Head of Content at Spring St, New York resident
“People outside of big urban areas are feeling really disenfranchised and scared about the world at the moment. To us, he’s espousing hate, but there are Americans who love that and they want this guy who is gonna come in powerfully and say ‘make America great again.'”
Jacqueline Lunn – Senior Editor
“For me this is a victory for hate. It’s not a victory for love at all… I always thought, ‘here’s a woman who has the credentials. She’s smart and strong,’ and they decided to go for something that is nasty, and full of hate. Everything I abhor in my personal value set.”
