You have to read multiple sources now. It just takes too much time to deal with these days. No source is truly a good source. There are no "raw" news sources left. They all have some crappy slant.

Trump trumped Clinton. It was as if they were in a child custody battle at times. I'm happy the father won. Mom lied a lot.

The US wanted change. Just look at Trump and Sanders. And enough of them didn't care if the agent of change was spouting nonsense. Clinton is establishment. Electing her wouldn't have changed anything.

Similar to Brexit, the establishment has been ignoring a large portion of their own population and it has come back to bite them. I see similarities in this to the pushback to the TPP and CETA.

When change happens, such as industries moving to China or Mexico, NAFTA, and other trade deals there are always winners and losers. A good government would help the losers adapt but they seem more interested in helping their friends and faithful. Now people are fed up.

In a democracy, everyone gets to vote, even if they don't agree with you. Some people who spout on about diversity are only interested in the diversity they believe in. The tendency of some people to bash whoever voted for Trump is exactly the reason he won.

...as opposed to lying about financials, she lied about her email handling. To add insult to the whole thing for her, Trump won Arkansas where her husband was once Gov and slept with loads of women

.....and how is this different here in Canada? President Trump (PT) is echoing what most political / powerful types are scared to utter both in the US and Canada, and his actions and now results might just change things this side of the border when the next election comes around.

There is already a female version of Trump here now

Trump’s win an ‘exciting message’ that’s needed in Canada, Kellie Leitch says

The Tory leadership candidate’s campaign has proposed screening immigrants for as-yet undefined Canadian values, while criticizing her fellow candidates.

I worry about what kind of global damage he can do in four years.

Yet Canadians ride on the back of all that you've just described. I mean supporting a NFL, NHL team you have no connection with south of the border is considered what????

Ironically, a lot of women voted for TRUMP in many states and there is even a group calling themselves "Trump Women"

Why white women voted for Trump

It appears that many women weren't concerned with Trump's comments about women. The official "Women for Trump" website doesn't overlook it — the site, which is not officially affiliated with or supported by the Trump campaign, acknowledge's Trump's sexist comments and rationalizes they make him authentic.
"That's because he's not working off a TelePrompTer or a script fine tuned by a consultant and focus groups," the Women for Trump site stated. "We look at his actions, not his words."
Other women brushed off the candidates comments and didn't seem to mind that Trump has talked about assaulting women without their consent.
"Groping is a healthy thing to do. When you're heterosexual, you grope, okay? It's a good thing," Jane Biddick, a female Trump supporter, told New York Magazine.
And of course, women likely voted for Trump for the same reasons as men. His criticism of immigrants is comforting to some Republicans and may have given him an edge when it came to Republican-leaning women, the Washington Post reported in April 2016. Trump's rhetoric of taking back the country appealed to women in the Tea Party.
Why women of color didn't

Polling numbers reveal black women and Latina women were more apt to show Clinton the love at the polls. A whopping 94% of black women voted for Clinton, down slightly from the 96% of black women that voted for President Obama in 2012.
Black women are a force: They had the highest turnout out of any group in the 2012 election, the Washington Post reported, noting that 74% of eligible black women cast their vote. In that election, a greater percentage of eligible white women and black women voted compared to eligible white and black men.

I still feel like it's a bad dream or some kind of practical joke.
