Whatever one thought about it personally, and whatever has happened in the year since, I can imagine it was one of the truly "WTF!" moments of everyone's lifetime.


Like, EVERYONE.


Even his supporters had to be a little shocked he won.

Phil Hendrie has a cold so instead of doing his daily podcast yesterday he put up last year's from 11/8 of him doing his characters covering the election results live that night. He HATES Trump so I was enjoying listening to it again last night and hear him try to stay in the character voices and explain away how Trump had pulled off the victory lol..

Economy is better than it has been in a long time. Housing is doing great. Stocks are soaring, which include retirement annuities. Illegal crossing is down tremendously. He's doing his darnedest to keep out potential terrorists. I wish he was President 30 years ago. I'd still be living in my old neighborhood.


With all of the above, his poll numbers are still low. I really wish he would change his behavior. Yeah, his tweets are funny and cute, but it doesn't expand his base. Most Americans are apolitical, like my wife and her friends. My wife couldn't tell you five policies, but she's certain Obama was better than Trump because he's more presidential.

I made several dinner bets that he was going to win. His crowd sizes were just too enormous compared to Hillary's. Yeah, that doesn't translate into a victory per se, but it shows that there was a certain buzz about the guy. 

Nov 8 was a great day. First, BLM held a protest rally in my neighborhood because some armed thug was rightfully dispatched by an off duty cop. The bullies got bullied that day because my neighborhood wasn't having any of their bullshit. The bikers revved up every time they wanted to speak. One BLM member grabbed the megaphone and said that your racist hero is losing to a female today. That prompted everyone to start a Trump chant.

It wouldn't have surprised me if Hillary would have won by a landslide. The exit polls gave her a huge win. Even though I won a couple of bets, I have to admit that it was a wtf moment for me.
Like him or hate him, this was the most amazing presidential victory in the history of the U.S.

I don't know if I posted this here or only on Facebook, but this was my postmortem from a year ago today.  I think we all know what happened and that Democrats double-downed on their safe spaces instead of taking this to heart.


After the shock wears off, I really hope Democrats take a good, long look at themselves and what they caused this year, and accept responsibility for this disaster we now face with Trump. They were smug, arrogant assholes who forced someone down our throats who there was never much support for. They lied and cheated every step of the way to get her the nomination and then harassed and intimidated the majority who didn't like her to get on board. And they just assumed it would all fall into place. What they got was tons of Democrats and Obama supporters who didn't show up, voted third party, or actually flipped and went with Trump outright. Are these Obama supporters all racist rednecks? Or maybe they just really didn't like the candidate who the DNC anointed Queen 8 years ago.

On the other side, the Republicans allowed their anointed arrogant candidate Jeb to be swept out with the trash early and went with the candidate who actually motivated their voters. And they won through all the laughter and mockery.

Can the Democrats clean house, admit their corruption and incompetence, re-align their party goals with the American people, and strategize for next time? Or will they spend the next 4 years hiding in their safe spaces and screaming "racist" at random intervals? Sadly, it will probably be the latter. Some people never learn.

I was in Taiwan last year so I woke up on Wednesday morning -- 13 hours ahead of the east coast -- expecting to see that Hillary had already been coronated, instead things were still very much up in the air. By late morning it was starting to sink in that this might actually happen. I spent the afternoon watching the various cable news networks available at my sister-in-law's apartment, several of them from Europe, and enjoying their discombobulation as minute by minute it became apparent that the unthinkable had happened.

I was not a Trump supporter and was frustrated that he had come out of the Republican pack, but as November 9th (for me) unfolded I was caught off guard by how fundamentally excited I was for his victory. To me, a Clinton win would have been the final nail in the coffin for the U.S. as the founders intended. The Supreme Court would have been gone, the nanny state expanded further, the notion of a border now a quaint antiquity. And deep down last fall I had resigned myself to that eventuality. When it struck me that maybe there was a glimmer of hope for the country, I was profoundly cheered. Trump's still not my idea of a conservative avatar, but he's done far more good than harm this first year.

For those wishing to indulge their schadenboner, John Nolte at Breitbart has assembled a selection of videos from election night that should once and for all remove any doubt that the mainstream media are an extension of the Democrat party. My favorite is when that paragon of disinterested gravitas, Jake Tapper, three times has to correct himself after using "we" to describe the Clinton campaign.

In closing, may I say to the political/media/entertainment/academic elite of this country, with all intended disrespect: FUCK YOU!
