Alex,  A new co-worker, let's call him Bob, is out for my job. He frequently comments about how he would do a better job and criticizes my appearance, my personal life, and my work performance.  He recently found out that our boss is a huge Trump supporter. I spent a lot of time during the last presidential election posting my opinions about Trump on Facebook. They were far from positive. Anyway, lately Bob has taken to screenshotting my old posts and emailing them around in a mass office email. The only person not included in the mass emails is my boss. Now Bob says that he will forward them to my boss unless I start praising him and suggesting that he is a better fit for my job.  I am really concerned that my opinions can cost me my job. - Gabby
