Republican House, Republican Senate, and Donald Trump is the next President of the United States of America. AP just called it. Hillary just conceded, and I’m sitting in front of the TV ready to hear Trump give his acceptance speech, surrounded by people shouting “USA! USA!” I’m in shock. God help us.
Donald Trump has won.
I think the pollsters underestimated the White Male vote. We live in a very dangerous time. The people have spoken, and this is what we’ll have to live with.
I’m not sure what to say since I’m in shock right now. I suppose that at some point, we’ll have to look across the aisle to see why this happened. How this happened. What we need to do going forward. I know some of my friends are hurt and saddened and will feel like withdrawing. I hope this doesn’t happen. As I’ve said many times, the extremists are running things, and one side happened to win the presidency. Let’s cross the aisle and listen to one another. Most of us are not extremists. But even among those who are, we need to reach out to them too.
Everyone, stay safe. If you’re a long-time reader of this blog, let me know how you’re doing. We can’t trust the media, but we can trust our friends.
