    Never forget: they mostly didn’t.

    First, the majority of people voted for not-Trump, though lmfao b/c we don’t care about “majority” here… :-P

    Second, the majority of electoral college votes were for not-Clinton. Including protest votes to third-party candidates.

    And before that, the majority of votes in the Republican primary election were for not-Cruz.

    And before that, the media gave him tens (hundreds?) of millions of dollars worth of free advertising. Then afterwards they gave even more, b/c you “gotta be fair” after all!:-D

    He very much is the product of “The System”, which shat him out and just as easily can produce another exactly like him. Kanye 2028?

      Democrats too. Democrats pumped alot of money and energy into elevating trump, and continue to pump money into far right candidates.

        “Certainly not many people would be dumb enough to…” -> Almost half the nation proceeds to prove them wrong.:-(

        “Well what else were we to do, leave the only other option be BERNIE SANDERS!?”

        Republicans are not “conservatives” nor are Democrats “liberals”, I now realize.:-(
