He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science... too many people have died.⠀I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now... your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. ⠀❤️🗳 PS - It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible 🙏🏼"
