Here’s the thing: Trump could never be anti-establishment as president because he has to follow the protocols of government. He’s already shown a lack of understanding in regard to what exactly a president needs to do by announcing how he will distribute his time between the White House and his ivory tower. He is in over his head with zero experience as a public servant, therefore he must surround himself with (guess who?) establishment politicians who will form the backbone of his presidency. Those who voted for anti-establishment were only fooling themselves to think that he would “shake up” anything besides the decency of the position.
Bernie was never going to have a chance in this election. His social policies would have turned away a great number of Americans thus making him a liability for Democrats in this election. The DNC was well aware of this, as was Bernie which is why he kept his nose in the fight albeit from the sidelines. He is experienced enough to know that change does not happen overnight, and you need to work over time. Construction does not happen as quickly as destruction. To say that Clinton stole anything is to ignore the pulse of moderate America. Bernie was not trusted by conservatives, yet Clinton had some support by meeting them half-way. She was a better bet.
Despite what Wikileaks has reported, Clinton was investigated and the FBI found no reason to convict her. Now unless you or anyone at Wikileaks works for the Department of Justice, I don’t believe that anyone can simply take your first paragraph as truth. Clinton had been scrutinized again and again for the past three decades by a powerful (yes) establishment party for things that others in government have done themselves. If you want to investigate the mistakes of every politician, you’d run out of money and waste the public’s time. Now since you’re so quick to say “guilty” before presuming innocence why not address Trump’s upcoming legal issues? I suppose that Wikileaks has to take up the cause for you to believe that he’s guilty, right?
The election was close. There was no mandate for the kind of change that Trump was talking about.
