I probably would have exploded at the Franklin Graham remark. My SIL worked for and retired from the Billy Graham Crusade, after Franklin had taken it over. He treated his father's employees like dirt. He's scum, just another money-grubbing TV preacher/huckster...This is so true. I got sucked into a roughly 90 second conversation last week with a patient after finishing her procedure. I didn't bring Trump up; she told me the thought Trump was a great president and asked if I agreed. I responded I don't care much for Trump.
Her: It's his personality, right?
Me: I can't get past his personality.
Her: President Trump has done a lot of great things for the Christians of this country. The election was stolen from him.
Me: I wonder why he wasn't able to prove it in court. He lost over sixty lawsuits.
Her: There are a lot of corrupt judges in this country. It sounds like you have been fake news'd. What news do you watch?
Me: I get my news from reading.
Her: The press is corrupt. Haven't you heard that?
Me: What news do you watch?
Her: OAN is where I get my news.
Me: Is OAN not part of the press.
Her: I hate that you have been fake news'd.
At this point she left in a huff. Earlier this week I received a letter from her. I'll post it later today. I didn't handle the situation well at all. I had no intention of losing a patient. I thought I was just responding to her queries and we were talking. I had no idea she was becoming offended.
