Drumph is the absolute worst candidate that Republicans could have chosen. He was a Democrat until a few years ago. Now they are faced with the monster they allowed to grow in their midst. He is their creation. Nothing has changed since his folks sent him off to a military style school in the hopes that his bullying would be curtailed. His wealth has insulated him from all responsibility.
I feel so sorry for the American public. They deserved better.

The candidate is not solely responsible for winning the GOP nomination.He had help. The other fourteen candidates lacked the stamina to stay the course.
The " strategy" of bullying and abuse by Trump dominated the contest from day one.
Yet the media accorded him credibility. They enjoyed his performance. Called it "muscularity".
After the primaries, CNN matched every negative report about the GOP nominee with something dug up about the Democratic nominee . The claim was "to provide balance". Statements with scant substance were repeated over and over and credence established to nothingness.
The longer it lasted, the greater the damage .
A monster was created. The loudest most strident voices filled the air time.
The claim of dislike and distrust against the Democratic nominee became a given. Despite the enthusiastic crowds at rallies.
Until Trump accused the media of dishonesty and corruption, the narrative continued in the same vein.
The tune changed, late but better than never. The Trump narrative widened.
He was rich and famous.His power and belligerence were feared. Only when THEY were threatened, they defended themselves in the way they know how. Payback time.
Like the young women he abused throughout his maturity, the media chose the moment to
break reticence and change the Trump narrative.
At the catholic charity dinner, Hillary suggested campaigns should be shorter.
The guests applauded.
It would not have been best. The extra time was needed .
Braggadocio is puerile.
Reality finally came to the fore.
Americans will do what they will.
You can fool some of the people some of the time.
You can't fool all of the people all of the time.
