Interesting article in the November 17-30 paper. I was not a Trump supporter either and only voted for him because his opponent was far worse. We also avoided an unprecedented constitutional crisis (what happens when the President-elect is indicted?).
The best thing about this election is that two political dynasties have been swept into the dustbin of history. I understand both former Bushes were supporting Hillary, and Jeb spent all of his time letting us know why he’ll never be president. Hillary did pretty much the same. Never in my lifetime has any political figure fallen so far so quickly, and never has it been more deserved. Hillary has stated that her private, unsecured server was a “mistake.” Make no mistake; she did that so her shenanigans with the Clinton Foundation would be hidden. Unfortunately, at least five foreign countries hacked this server. Our secrets are secret no more. There are still two investigations ongoing in Congress, and the FBI still has more than one hundred agents on her. President -Elect Trump may walk that back, and I’m in favor of that, with conditions.
We drop all future consideration of prosecuting the Clintons, if and only if they disappear from public life. We don’t want to hear a peep out of Hillary, Bill, or Chelsea ever again. Chelsea is being groomed for Nita Lowey’s seat in New York, but that may be tough now with her influence peddling parent’s recent hard fall.
Obama’s legacy? The destruction of the Democratic Party. Republicans now hold both houses of Congress and added members November the Eighth. Republicans now hold thirty-four governorships and the most state houses since Reconstruction. The greatest example of that is what happened in West Virginia. Note to future Democrats-don’t tell your constituents you are going to destroy their livelihoods. Obama and his politically correct brain dead drones blame this on racism of course since there are no black coal miners in West Virginia (I’m sure you’ll take that reference).
We did notice that hardly any of the downtown tantrum throwers are over the age of thirty. They come from the generation of participation trophies, where there are no winners or losers. So, when they suffer a loss, they are ill-equipped to deal with it. So we see the lady who ran over her husband when she found out he voted for Trump. People carrying “Love Trumps Hate” signs are physically assaulting Trump voters, and they are completely unaware of how that looks to sane people.
My main takeaway from November the Eight remains: Thank God it isn’t her. Trump is a New York liberal, but we won’t suffer another eight years of hate and discontent fomented by our most divisive president ever, and his hand-picked successor. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
