The Surprise Rise of Trump Nov 2016

The surprise of Trump – October/November 2016

Jill Lepore

The election of 2016 will not be remembered for anything beautiful.
Injury, fear, blame, hatred.
An election gone wrong.

Formation of Republicans and Federalists. We are all republicans we are all federalists
1964 parties began to diverge, public interest over party interest weakening.
Income inequality also grown.
Members of rival sects contain essence of the same:
– Both sides predicted political catastrophe. Non stop freak out. Hall mark of religious skism.
– Franklin: Difference between Church of Rome and England, the former infallible the latter never wrong.

Trump built a co-illition of those who thought they had been forgotten.

Thomas Chatterton Williams

Who voted for Trump? 
- White America and white aspiring latino’s
– Reaction against Obama
Identity based politics. Pandora’s box. Keep the lid on.
One persons nationalism

Zoe Heller
The voice of monochrome America spoke loudest
Non has been so glaringly unqualified
Jail Hillary
Ban Muslims from US
Torture terroists, kill their family
Drain the swamp
Climate change a hoax by Chinese

Surely not? But running as anti-politician. Shady business dealings, phoney university, made him smart.

What was it? democrates debate

Rise of Trump tribalist instinct. Too neat.
Those who voted for Trump, previously voted in Obhama.

Locker room talk, but didn’t matter as he would kill ISIS


Andrew Sullivan
It was Hillary stupid.
She’d been in establishment for decades
Earned millions in Davos,
Gave the smug impression it was her turn.
Entitlement attitude.
She is charm free. A mediocrity.
She won 2 million few people than Obhama
She crushed Trump on TV, spent more. Still lost
Ignored the smaller caucus states like Wisconsin.
White women, her core demographic, voted for Trump.

Trump a clear change.
Why did democrates vote for her in first place? Bernie Saunders. Obhama failed to stop her. Clinton funds.

Democrates blindness and Clintens fathomless attitude of entitlement

John Grey

Pre Trump status quo gone forever.
Library establishment did not understand the urgent need of large numbers of their citizens.
Like Brexit rejection of Status Quo

History a story of incremental improvements. progress. Inspired Librarl idealists for generations. Obhama referred to the Arch of History.
Unchecked globalisation
