How in the name of holy hell did Donald Trump, a lifetime con artist who never did a damn thing for anyone but himself, get elected President over someone who had spent her lifetime in public service on behalf of the less fortunate?
It took me weeks, and a full course of antidepressants, to figure it out.
The answer is that he hacked the Internet. Not the whole Internet, but the Internet medium that has emerged to drive politics in the Internet Age we now live in.
Trump’s supporters could do this, because those who created the medium refused to take responsibility for it. The people who built the industry refused to curate the product and protect it from liars.
