We rented out a bar in New York and had a huge party on Nov. 8. When Fox News said “Donald Trump wins presidency” we burst into paroxysms of screaming hysteria. It wasn’t because hate had finally trumped love. It wasn’t because rape was now legal and homosexuals were going to be sent back to wherever they came from. It was because all those dumb lies are over and we can stop hearing all these babies whine about them. The people just stole the country back from the establishment and it was really fun. That’s not a movie. That’s real life.Conrad Black:
Donald Trump is the oldest and wealthiest person elected president, the first not to have had a public office or high military command, the first to pay for his own campaign, and the first since Washington to waive his salary. He has defeated the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, and almost all the dishonest, myth-making national press (including David Remnick). The national political press has declined even more precipitously than the political class, and the president-elect was elevated despite the animosity of both, a signal achievement whose significance those who have been vanquished show no signs of grasping.
