Ever considered that YOU are the one who needs to be deprogrammed, Dave? You appear to believe mutually exclusive things on a daily basis: why can’t you just accept that the Democrats ran a terrible campaign with a truly horrible candidate and deserved to lose: to me that is an obvious fact to any unbiased observer. You keep inventing Fake News, Russian Hackers, KKK supporters, armies of Deplorable Americans to explain the Trump win. None of this is real: it is rationalisations created by your mind trying to make sense of an “impossible” Trump victory.

At some point your fantasy world will implode under the relentless evidence from the outside world that the vast majority of American States see Trump as a Reformer who will initiate real change, while Clinton was seen (correctly) as an establishment flunky who will parrot politically correct phrases while giving us another 4 years like the last 8. She was a white female Obama clone: that is why she lost in spite of the desire of many to have a woman President. You are going to have to digest the truth sooner or later: why not now?
