If you’re a Donald Trump supporter, the past few weeks probably have been downright exhilarating. For everybody else (present company included), it has been horrifying. As Trump wins a shocking number of states and delegate votes in the Republican primaries, naturally most everyone who’s not with him has one massively important question: WTF? Local political consulting business You Should Run, founded by former Orlando Weekly contributor Dave Plotkin, has an event planned to help you come to terms with Trump’s candidacy and connect with others like you. The organization is inviting Democrats, Republicans, NPAs and undecideds to gather and listen to panelists answer questions about Trump and have an open discussion about the best ways to respond to his candidacy. No media spin, no social media memes, no pundits – straight talk about how to come to terms with Trump. The discussion will be followed by live comedy, music and activism. The event is free, but you’ll need to RSVP (email attend@letstalkabouttrump.com), and space is limited. Local nonprofits and activist organizations are welcome to set up tables to showcase their community work (email table@letstalkabouttrump.com for information). Sorry, Trump supporters, you aren’t welcome inside, but you can protest and rally outside as long as you keep it peaceful. “The antidote to mass-media manipulation is conversation and community,” the event’s Facebook page says. “Let’s Talk About Trump, Orlando, and let’s do something about this.”

6 p.m. Wednesday, March 16 | Winter Park Community Center, 721 W. New England Ave., Winter Park | letstalkabouttrump.com | free
