Aaron Sorkin Writes Emotional Letter to Daughter After Donald Trump Election

Aaron Sorkin Writes Emotional Letter to Daughter After Donald Trump Election

Aaron Sorkin has written an open letter to his 15-year-old daughter Roxy and her mother Julia Sorkin about the election of Donald Trump.

The 55-year-old The Social Network writer wrote, “And it wasn’t just Donald Trump who won last night—it was his supporters too. The Klan won last night. White nationalists. Sexists, racists and buffoons. Angry young white men who think rap music and Cinco de Mayo are a threat to their way of life (or are the reason for their way of life) have been given cause to celebrate.”

“First of all, we remember that we’re not alone. A hundred million people in America and a billion more around the world feel exactly the same way we do. Second, we get out of bed. The Trumpsters want to see people like us (Jewish, “coastal elites,” educated, socially progressive, Hollywood…) sobbing and wailing and talking about moving to Canada. I won’t give them that and neither will you. Here’s what we’ll do…,” Aaron added, “…we’ll f*cking fight. (Roxy, there’s a time for this kind of language and it’s now.) We’re not powerless and we’re not voiceless. We don’t have majorities in the House or Senate but we do have representatives there. It’s also good to remember that most members of Trump’s own party feel exactly the same way about him that we do. We make sure that the people we sent to Washington—including Kamala Harris—take our strength with them and never take a day off.”

    Aaron Sorkin, another piece of shit who insults people and spread hatred and lies. I hope his daughter will be brutally raped by someone like Bill Clinton and someone like Hillary Clinton will help that rapist to get away with it. He deserves it.

  • MissyMiss

    wow is he totally uninformed, misled and ignorant. he sounds like a fool. all these Hollywood liberals better shut up before they find out that A LOT of people are going to boycott their products. They are calling 50% of the population racists.

  • sydney jane

    Ugh, another whiny celebrity. These people are so out of touch with the rest of America…that’s the reason their candidate lost. Do you think Sorkin even knows that 35% of Latinos voted for Trump? Probably not.

    I agree with you Aaron ❤️

    Anyone with common sense would.

  • gwen

    Umm. Hello. Most of America doesn’t agree with you dip shit.

  • Ash

    This kind of rhetoric was why people voted for Trump in the first place. We’re tired of being called racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic and etc just because we don’t agree with out of touch celebrities who are engulfed in political correctness. They have no idea how most people live and struggle to get by.There were a lot of minorities voted for Trump because of his policy and this idiot can’t even comprehend that. You don’t speak for us and stop being a sore loser. It’s pathetic.

  • Javier Bardem

    Wow the trumpters are full of hate and have nothing but mean things to say. Remember that’s why more than half the country is disappointed. We want better for our children and fellow Americans than that. Respect each others differences. Let’s see what he’ll do for his supporters. Let’s see what promises he’ll follow through. Should be interesting!

  • lost_girl

    He’s just another sheeple, people!!

  • Orcus

    educated and socially progressive?? you mean the “do you know who i am” celebrities?

  • Orcus

    by the way your hillary is a massmurderer

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Wow dude, not too hateful are you? I hope you’re not this horrible in your real life.

  • Orcus

    socially progressive? even lybia had a better healthcare than the US, and they had no external debt. that is why your killery ruined their country not because of your fake “democracy”you have 18 trillion debt…what an elitist nobody

  • Kelly

    “Most of America” didn’t vote on Tuesday

  • Roger Dodger

    You realize that our president elect has to stand trial on 11/28 for fraud and racketeering charges don’t you?

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    He doesn’t realize that those who voted for Trump are tired of the type of shit people like him say.
    If you don’t agree with them then you are a racist, homophobic, hate women, hate LGBT,etc.
    People voted for Trump because he appealed to the working class people. Hilary Clinton appealed to the rich and Hollywood elite. People are tired of seeing her and Obama hob-nob with these celebs and invite to expensive dinner parties at the WH.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    He just proved why people voted fro Trump. Not everyone who disagrees with you is a racist, hates women, hates hispanics, blacks, LGBT,etc.
    Aaron Sorkin and the rest of Hollywood are out of touch. Most American are not privileged like him and his daughter. Does his daughter have to worry about when her next meal is, if her parents lose their job, has to pay for her college,etc?

  • MissyMiss

    Trump WILL help the working class. He may have terrible flaws but I believe he really does care and he loves this country. I hope he succeeds.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    When Hilary was running around with Jay Z and Beyonce, he was actually taking the time to go to the smaller states where all these working class people live, and listened to their concerns. Whether they want to admit it or not, Trump and the Republicans found a way to connect with the common people. The Dems and Hilary did not.
    The Dems only showed up in big states and only talked to the rich and Hollywood celebs. They are not a representation of America!

  • Sabrina

    I really don’t wonder why a guy like you would vote for Trump ;-)…

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Stop the whining. Whatever is the president, Hollywood people don’t suffer. Hollywood people don’t worry about bills, mortgage, health care and other things. They don’t know what a american working middle class has to do to survive every single day to be able to feed their children.

  • MissyMiss

    Hillary thought she was a shoo-in and those morons marching in the street are ignorant and/or plain old troublemakers

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    She did. She and the Dems thought they had this. Boy were they wrong!

  • MissyMiss

    The media is should be embarrassed by their blatant bias and fake reporting. I hope a lot of these talking heads get fired.

  • Ash

    Innocent until proven guilty and if he is found guilty, I hope he will be judged accordingly.
