I read this story and I wanted to stand up and cheer. It made me so happy. It was like “YES!” there’s still hope out there for America!

I want to introduce you to a really brave and amazing lady.

Her name is Dr. Karlyn Borysenko and she’s a young New Hampshire psychologist who, up until a few nights ago, was a rabid member of the anti-Trump Resistance:

You see, I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist. I thought they were horrible (yes, even deplorable) and worked very hard to eliminate their voices from my spaces by unfriending or blocking people who spoke about their support of him, however minor their comments. I watched a lot of MSNBC, was convinced that everything he had done was horrible, that he hated anyone who wasn’t a straight white man, and that he had no redeeming qualities.

But after attending a New Hampshire Trump rally, she has a whole new outlook.

Are you pleased with America's job growth under President Trump?

No, she’s not suddenly a MAGA-hat-wearing Trump supporter, but she’s close to possibly voting for him. The most important thing is that she’s no longer suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

“He hasn’t convinced me yet but he absolutely could depending on who the democrats nominate.”

The most amazing part of her journey is that she realized the Americans who support Trump are not “Nazis” and “racists.”

Finally! 

After the New Hampshire rally, Karlyn officially walked away and changed her voter affiliation from Democrat to “independent”:

I started to discover (or perhaps rediscover) the #WalkAway movement. I had heard about #WalkAway when MSNBC told me it was fake and a bunch of Russian bots. But then I started to meet real people who had been Democrats and made the decision to leave because they could not stand the way the left was behaving. I watched town halls they held with different minority communities (all available in their entirety on YouTube), and I saw sane, rational discussion from people of all different races, backgrounds, orientations, and experiences. I joined the Facebook group for the community and saw stories popping up daily of people sharing why they are leaving the Democratic Party. This wasn’t fake. These people are not Russian bots. Moreover, it felt like a breath of fresh air. There was not universal agreement in this group — some were Trump supporters, some weren’t — but they talked and shared their perspective without shouting or rage or trying to cancel each other.

Karlyn has a warning for her former party:

I think the Democrats have an ass-kicking coming to them in November, and I think most of them will be utterly shocked when it happens, because they’re existing in an echo chamber that is not reflective of the broader reality. I hope it’s a wake-up call that causes them to take a long look in the mirror and really ask themselves how they got here. Maybe then they’ll start listening. I tend to doubt it, but I can hope.

As Karlyn was leaving the rally she had another spot-on observation:

As I left the rally—walking past thousands of people who were watching it on a giant monitor outside the arena because they couldn’t get in—I knew there was no way Trump would lose in November. Absolutely no way. I truly believe that it doesn’t matter who the Democrats nominate: Trump is going to trounce them. If you don’t believe me, attend one of his rallies and see for yourself. Don’t worry, they really won’t hurt you.

Her tweet below to Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC was maybe her most powerful.

“Hi @Lawrence. I’m a D voter in NH. I was also at Trump’s rally last night. You just asked on @msnbc if @realDonaldTrump had ever spoken to a NH voter that didn’t already support him in a way that would convince them to flip. You said no. You were wrong.”

And bonus, we now know there’s a cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome, Trump rallies!
