Re: Why Trump Won
I didn’t vote for Trump, but I most definitely voted for the GOP majority that he helped usher in.
I’ll just leave you with this:
Everyone who’s out there breaking things and beating people up?
Everyone who’s calling the election result a macroaggression and running for your safe space?
Everyone who keeps repeating that Trump called all Mexicans rapists (he didn’t) or that he’s going to bring on a wave of anti-gay repression (even the NYTimes called him the most pro-LGBT candidate among the GOP field, a year ago)?
Every teacher who called in “Grief Counselors” for the kids they’d painstakingly trained to be distraught over the election?
Everyone who took Wednesday off from work to cry about the election? Posting “He’s not my president” memes on Facebook? Jabbering about moving to Canada?
And above all, everyone who sniffs down your nose at what a bunch of morons your fellow citizens seem to be?
YOU are why Donald Trump won.
Not “racists”. Not Wall Street (they donated overwhelmingly to Hillary). Not ignorant rubes. Not me, a humble weekend talk show host who cordially disliked Trump’s public persona twenty years before most of you were making The Apprentice appointment TV.
