The unexpected victory of Donald J. Trump, who is now the U.S. President-elect, is still very much intriguing to many liberals, political pundits, Hollywood actors/actresses, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, establishment Democrats, mainstream media and commentators, especially on the left of the U.S. political spectrum, demographic and racial divide who hitherto constituted themselves into the entrenched and arrogant controlling and governing class in America. Trump’s meteoric rise (from nowhere literally) to the highest office in the land – in the United States of America this year, came as a rude shock to many around the world . . .
Those leftist motley crew in the United States still cannot fathom out, despite their contrived acquiescence, Gallup and galloping CNN polls and overrated polling numbers, which spiraled out of control when confronted by the Trumpian machine. This is the gist of how the famously apolitical genius, ex-television personality, ex-showbiz impresario, ex-beauty pageant owner/organizer and soon-to-be ex-real estate mogul managed to edge out an accomplished ex-First Lady, Senator, ex-Secretary of State (who used her family’s private email server for official communications, rather than official State Department email accounts maintained on federal servers) and ex-consummate politician, who would’ve been the first female President of the United State of America.
Trump’s victory represents a long-overdue rebuke to an entrenched and arrogant governing class in God’s Own Country. However, for those who see it as for the worse, they’re consumed by caustic nostalgia. They are sore losers akin to a sleepless hungry baby whose quivering mouth was pulled out as he sulked milk from his/her sleep-deprived mother’s breast at 12:00 midnight in the once blue state of Pennsylvania. I must admit that the once cherished norms of civility and discourse which characterized the political correctness of yore may have taken a hit – a beating is more like it.
Twitter descended into a meltdown after Fox News’ commentator Bill O’Reilly on the O’Reilly FACTOR Tonight (on ‘The Factor’) lashed out on the “liberal conspiracy” from the left to take power away from the “white establishment”. “This is all about race. The left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with. Therefore white working class voters must be marginalized,” he argued on the O’Reilly Factor. Liberals believe “white men have set up a system of oppression and that system must be destroyed.” “The left wants power taken away from the white establishment and they want a profound change in the way America is run,” O’Reilly hollered.
The American left (the liberals), despite what Bill O’Reilly’s White Establishment allegation might portend, still believe that Donald Trump’s run to the White House constituted a hitherto unknown politics poisoned by vile streams of racism, sexism and nativism. “For those who believe this is all for the better, Trump’s victory represents a long-overdue rebuke to an entrenched and arrogant governing class; for those who see it as for the worse, the destruction extends to cherished norms of civility and discourse, a politics poisoned by vile streams of racism, sexism, nativism,” wrote Time Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs. What destruction? If I may ask? TIME is owned by TimeWarner so what does anybody expect? The only thing I agree with TIME is that Donald Trump is the world’s 2016 Person of the Year – and it is not for the worse but for the better – whether the liberals like it or not.
I was all riled up after President Barack Obama told his former senior adviser and campaign manager (the Democrat and liberal David Axelrod), that he thinks he would have beaten the President-elect Donald Trump had he been eligible to run a third time in office. What a nerve! It is pertinent to recall that Obama was the Democratic presidential candidate Hilary Clinton’s much-touted surrogate-in-chief on the campaign trail and Trump beat the hell out of him, both Clintons, some Hollywood and music industry and Silicon Valley surrogacies and all the other liberals – all in one fell swoop, as the so-called Clinton machine, Obama White House, and the mainstream media, spearheaded by CNN, NewYork Times, Washington Post et al, all crumbled before the Trumpian revolution.
True to fashion, Trump fired back on his favorite platform: Twitter.
I was patently happy and un-riled up after that!
