Explained by RideCaptainRide...

ANY Democrat candidate, male or female, with a shred of integrity or decency, would have stopped Trump. Unfortunately, the DNC offered neither.

Trump is the only one to blame. Republicans are too blame, as well, for having such a deficient candidate as their nominee. Too bad Trump's such a wimp, he won't take accountability for his actions. Hillary would have been a much better president but she lost, and Trump won. Liberals are over that, all we want is for Trump to take responsibility for governing America, stop the nonsensical tweets, stop blaming everyone for his idiocy.....and act like a president, instead of a 5 year old having a temper tantrum.

You can't blame a candidate for winning. I blame the DNC for arrogantly offering Hillary as their choice, knowing her bottomless fallacies and overestimating her appeal, thinking that she could NOT lose. Thank you for your opinion :)

No one is blaming him for winning, but because of the Russian connection there is concern at this point about how he won.

I didn't vote for Hillary because of her gender, that's just nonsense. I voted for her because she has experience in governmental affairs, and Trump has none, and he is proving that every day. All he knows how to do is tweet silly stuff.

Hillary did win the popular vote by 3 million, that says a lot about how our election was won.

Good post.

Actually, the Republicans did NOT want Trump. They were bound by the primary wins. That's the funny part. NOBODY wanted Trump, yet there he tweets in the Oval office. I like Kasich too.

The DNC and their pocket-media were overconfident, cocky even, and it got the better of them as arrogance usually does. They didn't take their oppositions' concerns seriously, rather they dismissed and demeaned them. That is what cost them the election.

I would disagree. I think if there is one takeaway from Trump's win it is that a great many people are so thoroughly miffed with government that they'd sooner hire a buffoon in a necktie than someone they deem a DC 'insider.'

The DNC leaks provided by Seth Rich revealed that Hillary Clinton colluded with the DNC leadership to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. Had Sanders been allowed to win the nomination, I think there's a substantial chance that he'd be President right now. But, like Trump, Sanders has principles, and the elite that control things from the shadows didn't want someone with principles in charge, so they ran somebody completely unprincipled instead, gambling that they could use their media to sway public opinion for her. Unfortunately for them, their scheme backfired, and now instead of Sanders, they have Trump to contend with, an individual who is far less controllable.

MANY liberal Democrats did not vote for Hillary Clinton in the primary. It is true that top DNC officials preferred Clinton, that Hillary and the DNC got over-confident, and that BOTH of the top Democratic candidates could have run better campaigns.
I know that many Democrats were a little more uneasy about Sanders than Clinton, though. As I said, I do think their preference for her had little to with gender, in most cases.

I'm not convinced that Bernie Sanders would have beat Trump either. He and Clinton on the same ticket...probably.

This is the bottom line.
The Republicans DID want Trump. If they didn't, he wouldn't have won in the Primaries.
The Democrats DID want Hillary. If they didn't, she wouldn't have won in the Primaries.
We have a legally elected president, elected in accordance with the laws and system of the United States.
People can **** and moan all day long about this or that, and come up with excuses and conspiracy theories until they have sucked all the oxygen out of the atmosphere, but it's not going to change reality.

No, I don't think so. Clinton wasn't the only one since the beginning. There was other Republican candidates. And who voted for the Republican candidates? Who chose the "best" republican candidate? Rhetorical question.

This fashion of putting the blames on "others" is getting old. And it doesn't work anymore. All types of people voted. Saying this is all democrats fault is a lot of reaching, and it's wrong.

Edit: I've seen a similar post like this weeks ago - same logic, same argument. Still doesn't stick.
