The trauma was intense. I know, I voted for Clinton. When I woke up the next morning I was just sick. But within a day or two I realized that Trump and Trump’s voters deserved their turn, they won fair and square, I began looking more objectively at both Trump and Clinton, and I realized that Trump’s success was the success of all Americans.
So I packed my reflexive dislike of Trump away and began wishing him the best. From there it was easy to see that nearly all Democrats and nearly all of their media outlets were not able to move on that way. It was going to be four years of salty tears and butthurt, and there was nothing anybody could do for them.
It’s a sad comment on Democrats, unfortunately.
