Some folks can’t deal with this election. Cartoonist and Writer Scott Adams has just about the best explanation of the reaction to the Trump election:
This brings me to the anti-Trump protests. The protesters look as though they are protesting Trump, but they are not. They are locked in an imaginary world and battling their own hallucinations of the future. Here’s the setup that triggered them.
1. They believe they are smart and well-informed.
2. Their good judgement told them Trump is OBVIOUSLY the next Hitler, or something similarly bad.
3. Half of the voters of the United States – including a lot of smart people – voted Trump into office anyway.
Those “facts” can’t be reconciled in the minds of the anti-Trumpers. Mentally, something has to give.
Remember the absolute loons at the UMass event featuring Milo Yiannopolis? (Skip to 1:36 for the best part.) This exactly what is happening nationally.
You lost, buttercup. People voted honestly and with true conviction, and disagreed with you. You get no ribbon. No trophy. No White House.
The smug pundits don’t get to deconstruct a third consecutive Republican presidential loss. Van Jones, Mara Liasson and George Stephanopoulos don’t get to crow about the Clinton Dynasty.
