My fellow pundits are diligently writing theses and more explicating the rationale of the election. Mind you that almost all of them had it wrong as they assured us that Mrs. Clinton was about to be elected and in thumping numbers to boot. We and they know how that turned out. Nonetheless, they are yet telling any who will listen why it turned out the way they didn't think. Such is a new definition of chutzpah. One would think some humility or reality would illuminate their lives but, no worries on that. These are new world order types with lifetime entitlement to credibility through credentials, Ivy league issue.
But let me tell you what really happened.
Trump is a guy with +/- 8 billion in the bank, who owes nothing to anyone, has a super wife, family, homes everywhere, his own plane, hotels and more. He's famous from TV and from business and the branding of his name. He needs the slings and arrows of political fortunes like you need a hole in the head.
But, he stood up and said: "I will put America first and make America great again." Millions believed him and those millions lived in enough places around this fruited plain so as to assure him an excess of the 270 Electoral votes needed to win.ģ
And Mrs. Clinton never said that or anything close, at least not that you can remember. What did she say? "Stronger together" was her theme, whatever that means. Basically, she had nothing to inspire the voters around the country, just those blocks of minorities ghettoed in places like California and New York. Sadly California alone explained her total vote win. The blessings of a republic are not always apparent but this was surely one.
There are still enough of us Deplorables out there who love our country, who have and would again fight for it, so unlike Mrs. Clinton or her draft-dodging rapist husband or the current illegitimate in the White House who kow towed to dictators, bent his knee to them and trash-talked America for years world-wide.
Trump, despite his wealth and high life, is like us, not them. He and we believe in America First. And that's why Donald J. Trump is about to become the 45th president and Mrs. Clinton is about to disappear into the mists.
