Their death, however, shall precede ours unless we fuck up royally. I get what you're saying- but you're wrong. Up until about 9pm election day we were all resigned (with various degrees of excitement or dread) to another four years of a neoliberal Democrat globalist who, at a bare minimum, was the most qualified person to ever run for the office. 538 had her at 70%. Huffington Post had her at like 95%. Trump was grabbing women by the pussy and the majority of observers didn't even think it'd be close.
What we've had since then has been an object lesson in the effects of inexperienced narcissism on democracy. Very few of the people on Trump's team have been elected to so much as an HOA board and fewer of them have gone as far as running a quinceanera, let alone a country and nobody - nobody on the right, nobody on the left, nobody on the middle - wanted an inexperienced narcissist to head our country. They wanted the great negotiator. They wanted the billionaire CEO. They wanted the mighty and powerful Wizard of Oz and while there are still plenty of people out there who aren't quite willing to face the fact that they got a tired old man with a short attention span?
Every single one of us senses that this is not what was supposed to happen.
