Some of the comments in the article apply to almost all politicians, but you asked a question:
I don’t think that we got Trump because HE is so great. The person that I thought had the most sense chose not to run.
The Dems could not have run a worse candidate — one who covered up for a sexual predator and would have been in jail for security breaches if she was not the former first lady. Rules and laws apply to everyone but her.
Also, almost the entire majority came from California. The Electoral College did its job as designed which prevents one or a small number of states to dominate the election.
I just returned from Europe. Our mess isn’t anything like that of the UK with Brexit.
