Well Dave, you called it, didn’t you? Unfortunately we now live in an alternative universe where Trump did in fact win in spite of the suspicious release of an 11 year-old illegal recording of a private conversation in the middle of his campaign. Clinton dirty tricks team? Nothing to see here, move along…

Pussygate probably made many American males feel sorry for Donald Trump: The invasion of his privacy humiliated him in public in a way that would make us cringe, if the worst thing we ever said was recorded and played back in public. He dismissed it as “locker room talk” then moved on: that takes courage, and I think humanised him for the electorate. This was probably a Clinton Campaign error releasing what they thought would sink Trump once and for all, when it actually made him a victim of sorts.
