There is something very unattractive about bullying, which Donald Trump knows a lot about. Bragging is not very attractive either, especially when Trump’s accomplishment is more than a little questionable.
The president sent out a tweet, one year after he won the presidential election. It read:
‘Congratulations to all of the “DEPLORABLES” and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!’
Of course, Trump’s comment about “DEPLORABLES” refers to a very unfortunate comment his competitor, Hillary Clinton, made during her campaign. This is the video where she said it:
Twitter world responded to the president’s unbridled and possibly unsubstantiated bragging about his 2016 presidential election win.
Few people thought that Trump would actually win the election including Hillary Clinton, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, and even Donald Trump himself. At least, the president had serious doubts.
The results of that election remain questionable, due to Russia’s interference. The Cold War country bought and ran ads on social media, created fake news, and even sent out invitations to those Clinton called deplorables to come to events. They came.
As Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been showing the country, there may also have been illegal links between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. Plenty of arrests are pending on that matter.
On election night, at least half of the country went into a traumatic daze. How could a crude reality television star, who also bragged about grabbing women’s genitalia, win the prize of leader of the free world?
The people who voted for Donald Trump ran the gamut. The president-in-waiting had two important attributes going for him. His message about jobs was short and sweet, and his form of charisma whipped his rally goers into a hateful frenzy.
Even with the Russian interference, Donald Trump still lost the popular vote. Clinton won 65,489,409 to his 62,,827,833. Yet, when have the people’s desires been supported in Washington, D.C., lately? Instead, Trump won the all-important Electoral College vote.
As Virginia’s gubernatorial election showed last night, Trump has been pushing people into action, and not the good kind for Republicans. People have been rallying and getting out the vote against a president who shames them. Plus, those who believed they could live with Trump in the White House simply could not.

In fact, 27 renowned members of the psychological/psychiatric committee have broken with tradition and spoken out about how dangerous they consider Trump. Their book is called The Dangerous Case Of Donald Trump.
Even those who still support Trump have lost, although they do not realize it. In spite of the Fox News propaganda, if the president had his way, they would lose their health care, any hope of a better-paying job, and income that would be rerouted to the top one percenters.
Yes, Trump made it to the White House, but at what cost?
