But truth could be a lot more troubling than that. Maybe millions of Americans saw exactly who and what Trump was, and voted for him because of it.
This is why Hillary’s ad campaigns at the end were exactly the wrong strategy, and why her staff looked so dazed the next day. Video taped, voice recorded, documented, she spent all of her money on showing who he was, thinking that if people just knew how awful he is, they would never vote for him. She never bothered to show who she was, leaving Trump’s characterization of her the only publicity she had.
