He's the anti-politician.

First non-politician president we've had, since George Washington, anyway.

Given the right voter atmosphere, that's enough all by itself.

But as mentioned, "we" ran a horrible candidate.

Fucking idiot Democrats. A Danny O'Day ventriloquist's dummy with a missing monocle and left foot could have defeated Trump. Cannot fucking believe Hilary Clinton is the idiot they chose.

Nice catch.. indeed. He was at least a bureaucrat and established within American politics, though. Trump is a fucking reality television personality.

I would say Washington was pretty established within the politics of his time too. ;)

I think making such a comparison between Trump and Washington is both factually wrong, disgraceful to Washington, and puts Trump on a pedestal.

Folks the real tragedy of the American election is that I haven't been able to give a shit about my own country's politics for the last two months.
