Still in the Twilight Zone.
Ask Mussolini. Ask Hitler. Ask Stalin. Ask Pol Pot. Their populations were driven to exhaustion and paralysis by a constant barrage of attacks of that held most dear. Left stunned and disbelieving by the dizzying spin of hatred, demonization and battles seemingly lost, we're supposed to give up. Or fight a little less. So the old saw says.

One might not like what Trump stood for, but a lot of people did, enough for him to become president. He had a vision that compelled people to come out, in record numbers, just as Obama's vision had done eight years earlier. Clinton, on the other hand, offered competence and an impressive CV.... But that was just not enough to motivate enough people to come out for her.
