Nobody better at the chewing than Townhall’s Kurt Schlichter:
America laughed in Hillary’s face and rejected her in favor of Donald Trump.
Oh yeah, that’s the stuff.
So, while we have the gift that keeps on giving – total control of the government – many of our liberal friends are sad. They’re despondent, confused, and a bit afraid at how things have turned out.
Oh man, this just keeps getting better and better.
No, this is about our liberal friends, about thinking of them and their needs, and in this special season we should be extra-generous. After all, they are in pain.
Sorry, but this feeling of overwhelming joy is so awesome.
Okay, back to our liberal friends. Giving is important, and so here are some gift ideas for some of the prominent liberals (and others) who have helped make 2016 the year it was – a year I can’t accurately describe within the scope of the language allowed here…
I wish I could tell you that, having dodged the naggy bullet that was Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, we can now spend the next four years being left alone. But that’s not in the cards. Liberals won’t – because they can’t – pause to reflect on how they should stop being such insufferable jerks and live with us normals in peace and mutual respect. Instead, they are doubling down on their gambit for unrestrained power over every aspect of our lives, fueled by a hatred for Donald Trump that is, in reality, a hatred for us.
Remember, they really do hate us. Just ask them…
In the midst of our joyous celebrations, and as we savor the delicious schadenfreude left in the wake of Hillary’s humiliating rejection by normal Americans, it’s easy to forget that there is a much darker timeline where things could have gone very differently . . .
Noah Rothman @ Commentary: Democrats Descend into Madness
This stereotyping of Trump voters is not only illiberal, it falsely presumes Mr. Trump won because of his worst comments about women and minorities rather than despite them.
In fact, had those people who agreed that Mr. Trump lacked “a sense of decency” voted for Mrs. Clinton, she would have been elected the next president.
Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump equally won over party loyalists. Yet about one in five voters did not have a favorable view of either candidate. These voters overwhelmingly backed Mr. Trump. Exit polls demonstrated that if voters who disapproved of both candidates had divided evenly between them, Mrs. Clinton would have won.
Several weeks before the election, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 51 percent of white working-class voters did not believe that Mr. Trump had a “sense of decency” and ranked Mrs. Clinton slightly higher on that quality.
But they were not voting on decency. Indeed, one-fifth of voters — more than 25 million Americans — said they “somewhat” disapproved of Mr. Trump’s treatment of women. Mr. Trump won three-quarters of these voters, despite their disapprobation.
Bluntly put, much of the white working class decided that Mr. Trump could be a jerk. Absent any other champion, they supported the jerk they thought was more on their side — that is, on the issues that most concerned them.
