I, like many other Canadians, watched the coverage of the election last night. I did switch back and forth between the Ottawa Senators hockey game and the election coverage though, very Canadian of me!
Through the whole election process, I was struck by how divided the country (USA) was on their opinions of the candidates. People were/are very definite in this election. In past elections (ours included) opinions varied, but there appeared to be much less anger. Previously, all candidates had their strengths and weaknesses. Not so with this election.
People are angry at and sick of Hillary’s lies, deceit and suspected corruption. Others are angry and disgusted with Trump’s comments, actions and lack of political experience. Today there are many furious and heartsick people in the USA and around the world because Trump won the election. As naive as it may sound, I hope this anger dissipates soon so the country can move forward together.
I also hope that president-elect Trump is not the crass, irresponsible, selfish, crude, racist, sexist, idiot that all of those angry people say he is…
