The New Yorker Got It Right

The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, is a sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy. On January 20, 2017, we will bid farewell to the first African-American President—a man of integrity, dignity, and generous spirit—and witness the inauguration of a con who did little to spurn endorsement by forces of xenophobia and white supremacy. It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety.

Obama was Far from"Great"... (not even an American-born one.... One of the Prime Requirements)Many Lies to the Public,and nothing was ever said ... even when his Lies were proven to have been Lies... Only George W. was worse.... Nixon was better than that stupid Black and his trans-sexual wife "Michele" (Michelle)
But Trump... will not be good for the people in this Country.

Okay. Now you are being an idiot and a racist one at that. Obama held back the apocalypse which you are all going to experience now. I don't like this side of you. I would never be down on someone for something they can't control, like the color of their skin. Disappointing.

Many lies to the public? He doesn't hold a candle to any republican I can think of. And that's about the most mean-spirited thing I've heard about his wife. Real intelligent Dr.
