I Went To Boston And Discovered The Real Reason Trump Won
TL;DR: I went to Boston and discovered the real reason Trump won. Here’s a picture and a video that sums it up.
I spent the morning after the election in Boston at a giant conference, in a room full of industry peers from all over America, half of which voted for Trump, half of which voted for Hillary (estimated, taking demographics into account).
The rhetoric being used by the opening keynote speaker to describe people who voted for Trump was divisive at best, disgusting at worst. Half the people in an audience of 15k attendees were repeatedly being told they are deplorable idiots. While people cheered. We wonder why Hillary lost?
Why would anyone want to join the team that openly mocks them. Why would anyone ever wonder why that team lost.
If you ever called someone who was considering voting for Trump delusional, deplorable, stupid, ignorant, sexist, or racist… you are the reason Trump won. The meanness, insults, and bashing of people who hold different viewpoints than our own is the reason Hillary lost. Even in a room full of thousands of people who voted for Trump, the audience and the speaker jeered and mocked them openly while they all sat silent, all of them respectful. We wonder why no one saw a Trump win coming? That room was the clearest representation of why he won the election. Why would anyone want to join the team that openly mocks them. Why would anyone ever wonder why that team lost.
