Donald J. Trump is president-elect.
Much like me, you are probably stunned with this statement and are still unable to comprehend how this is so.
One thing is for certain, though. What you witnessed last night was fury in ways previously unseen.
Consider: only 37% of the voters believed that Donald Trump was qualified for the presidency and only 34 % believed that he had the temperament for the office. This is a stunning statistic. In effect, many voters said they knew Donald Trump wasn’t fit for the office of the most powerful man in the world–and they didn’t care.
This can only be called a “scorched earth” philosophy of voting: just throw a grenade into Washington, D.C. and see what happens, results be damned. People were that angry with the status quo.
