Comedian Patton Oswalt on Saturday revealed a newly unearthed note referencing President Donald Trump from his wife, crime writer Michelle McNamara, who died in April 2016. The note, which reads like a poem, is titled "Lies the movies told me."
It seems the true crime writer had already decided what type of person Donald Trump was 13 years before he became president.
Patton and his wife publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton before Michelle's death, and were vocal opponents of Trump.
Oswalt and McNamara married in 2005, and the comedian vowed to publish his wife's last work in February 2018.
Twitter came to Patton's side with an outpouring of emotion. Some thanking him for his emotional honesty and seeing his wife a "near Prophet."
Your Netflix special broke my heart in two. I haven’t been able to feel anything since the inauguration. Thank you for that.— No-Good N***a (@page6010) October 21, 2017

Last year, Oswalt ridiculed the then-GOP nominee for claiming he was the victim of political correctness.
"He is an ignorant, vengeful, racist asshole who is going, ‘Oh yeah, me too,' " he said at the time. "No, your shit should get criticized, because there’s no satire to it, and there’s no thought to it."
Considering McNamara’s unearthed thoughts on Trump, it’s likely she would’ve been proud that her husband's disgust for Trump has helped distract him from his grief and how he has used in his work.

The comedian often discusses his grief in interviews and on Twitter. He dedicated his 2016 special “Talking for Clapping” to her. Then, in his newest Netflix special “Annihilation,” Oswalt revealed the pain of loss of his wife and the pain of a Trump presidency.
