There were any number of things that went through my head last night. It had been a long time since i opened a bottle of champagne at 4 AM. I am of course pleased with the outcome of the election and frankly, amazed. Politically, it was the single most remarkable night I have ever witnessed.
He was not my first choice by any means but America wanted real change- they wanted an outsider. They voted for the repudiation of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s victory speech was as humble and contrite as it was and I thought it was entirely appropriate. It made for a good start. The left is going to see a different Trump than they expect to see. No one has been bombed yet. There have been no declarations of war. I am hopeful but not starry eyed. I expect Trump to do things that irritate me as he definitely has liberal inclinations.
Still, it was a stunning night. Keeping both houses of Congress and taking the Presidency was more than I could have imagined. But it is not them time to stick this in the faces of people we know. The media and politicians? – that’s another story.
Today, I do not gloat and I thank everyone for spending time on this blog- especially those on the left.
DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education.
DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed.
Except for liberals being foolish.
