First, let’s admit nobody saw this coming. I warned about Trump during the primaries. Especially, after Clinton won the nomination, I was furious: I said the DNC just gave us a Trump president!
But around May I saw the polls and it seemed inevitable for Clinton to win. It was common knowledge. We we all wrong. Respected pollsters who dared to say Clinton would still win, but by a thin margin, were ridiculed.
Republicans now have the Senate, house, white house and the supreme Court. But, they are not united. Trump is not with the establishment gang. And he holds a grudge against them for treating him like a fool during the primaries. What we must fear is he’ll put disgusting figures in his cabinet. I’ve always said he’ll never accomplish anything because he’s too stupid and incompetent. But as you know I’ve been wrong before. Let’s see.
So how did this happen?
-debate rigging scandal
-dismissing trump because he’s not a real politician
-taking speech money weeks before her campaign
-taking Morocco king money days before her campaign
-not attacking trump enough on the bankruptcies
-not taking enough progressive policies #nodapl #notpp
You’re wrong, Julien! Liberals wanted too much change and lost support of red blooded Americans. Liberalism is the reason we have Trump!
I haven’t watched CNN and Fox News, but I imagine that’s the rhetoric pushed 24/7 these days. I certainly saw this on smart people’s Facebook pages.
Democrats today are nothing but corporate goons. Their failure to motivate their base, like they used to when Bill Clinton got elected, is the cause. They chose to shift right since and during Bill Clinton era, trying to seduce Republican voters that will never vote for them, instead of aggressively fighting for the liberal and progressive issues.
If you think Democrats are liberals, don’t reach across the aisle enough and that’s why they lost the last (several) elections -three strikes!- you understand nothing about US politics so you’d be a perfect Fox News or CNN contributor.
This analysis albeit eloquent, is not smart, it’s the total opposite. Proof is the Republicans never reach for compromise, they are firm and aggressive. Voters like that and are motivated to go to the polls – independents perceive their behavior as more genuine.
Long term, for dismantling their progressive platform, letting corporate media and the Republicans manipulate the truth (low taxes=jobs, etc.) and distancing themselves from Liberals, The Democrat Party is responsible for Trump.
