[UPDATE: Donald Trump won in Michigan, too. Thus, my post has been edited to reflect this additional information. Hat tip to Scalia.]
Donald Trump was elected the next POTUS by 30 out of 50 states – a 60% majority.
Trump was elected by the system established by the U.S. Constitution, and the system worked like it is supposed to.
After all, the President of the United States is just that – President of the United States.
Thus, the President is elected by the States.
The Electoral College was created in such a way so as to prevent a minority of states from running roughshod over the majority of states.
The 11/08/16 decision by the majority of states isn’t being accepted by certain people who are now throwing temper tantrums.
To her credit, Hillary Clinton is asking her supporters to be gracious toward Donald Trump.
Democrat political analyst Juan Williams is also setting a positive example.
Juan Williams: “I am a Christian, a dad and grand-dad and a proud American first and foremost. I am an American before I am a Democrat, and before I am an author and a political analyst. I will pray for President-Elect Trump and root for his success on behalf of the American people even as – at least for today – I shake my head over the fact that Trump lost the popular vote but won the presidency because he won the Electoral College.”
Those who wanted Hillary Clinton to win aren’t helping anyone by acting like Chicken Little.
It is one thing to be disappointed about the result of a presidential election.
It is another thing to be such a snowflake that one needs a whaaambulance.
