All day I’ve been hearing the same two questions about Donald Trump’s victory ad nauseum from friends and news anchors: “How could this happen? How did no one see this coming?”
Admittedly, I was one of the many who believed Donald Trump couldn’t possibly find a large enough voter base in the US to agree with his sexist, racist actions and proposed policies. I believed that sanity would prevail and this brute of a man would be sent packing, tail between his legs, back to the reality show circuit where he belongs.
I took solace in the idea that there was no way Americans would put someone in the Oval Office who bragged about grabbing a peer “by the pussy.” The man who wants to force every person of Muslim descent to register themselves in a Nazi-esque database could not and would not hold the highest office in this country, Land of The Free, Home of The Brave, etc.
Instead, the unthinkable happened: President-elect Donald Trump. God bless America.
