"We’ve embarrassed ourselves in front of our children and the world."
Aaron Sorkin wrote a heartfelt letter to his 15-year-old daughter after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.
In the letter, shared exclusively with Vanity Fair, the screenwriter detailed his disbelief at the fact that "a thoroughly incompetent pig with dangerous ideas, a serious psychiatric disorder, no knowledge of the world and no curiosity to learn" emerged as the next president-elect.
Sorkin also expressed his angst at not being able to "protect" his family from the consequences of Trump's big win. "That’s a terrible feeling for a father." In his letter, he called out the "white nationalists, sexists, racists, and buffoons," that also shared Trump's night of ascension: "The Klan won last night."
