The polls had it wrong. The pundits had it wrong. Even Boots the psychic goat had it wrong. Hillary Clinton would win Tuesday’s election, they all said, and it wouldn’t be close. Donald Trump, the racist, sexual-assault-promoting, know-nothing blowhard, couldn’t possibly get enough mouth-breathers out of their trailers and into their polling places. That’s what most everyone thought, at least. Even the RNC.
But through it all a vocal group of Trump loyalists kept saying Trump could win. Some said a victory was a certainty. And now that it has come true, many are taking a victory lap. It’s hard to deny them that. Though some are flawed humans, their prognostications had no errors. And they’re taking the day after Trump’s election to remind us of that.
