Full disclosure: I had this post written around dinnertime last night, and it was vastly different from this one. I sent into draft and figured I would wake up, hear the Earth-shattering news, set the post, and crawl into my bed for four years. Then I tempted fate and checked Ace of Spades, only to find Donald Trump was gaining on Hillary Clinton.
Wait, that can’t be right. The #GOPSmartSet said Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide.
Apparently, the #GOPSmartSet is still anything but smart. Donald Trump proved everyone wrong, and won the presidency by speaking his mind – sometimes to his determent – and being himself. Trump is a lot of things, but he is not a phony, and his message resonated with voters. I have never seen a turnout like I did yesterday, and Philadelphia as a whole came out in droves. For Pete’s sake, he won both Pennsylvania AND Ohio!
In the end, the voters rejected compulsive liar and probable criminal Hillary Clinton in favor for an honest-to-goodness outsider. Trump’s election should signal good news to our economy, our porous southern border, and most of all, the Supreme Court.
Congratulations Mr. President-Elect. You have a tremendous opportunity before you. Please do not screw this up.
Oh, before I forget, Martina White, my super mega-awesome State Representative was reelected yesterday. The highlight of my day.
