Now, this dovetails with the frustration that they’re feeling. They know that they’re a bunch of Wile E. Coyotes now, that everything has been essentially a bomb that’s blown up in their faces. And they’re finally starting to ask something they should have asked before the election in 2016. How’d this guy get the nomination? What the hell did we miss here?
But their arrogance was such that they couldn’t go there. They could not treat Trump seriously. Therefore, they couldn’t seriously analyze what he had just achieved. He’d become the Republican nominee. That’s not an easy thing to do, particularly somebody who’s not a professional politician who is up against a candidate — Jeb Bush had a hundred million dollars starting the primary season.
Trump had zip. He had his own organization and his own money. And not once did any of the professional political consults or operatives in either party take even a day to try to figure it out. All they did was continue to insult Trump and his supporters. And they continued to operate on the belief that he had no prayer. There was no way he was gonna win. Hillary can’t be beat. We got Google doing things for us. We got Facebook doing things for us. We got the Clintons doing things; we got Obama. She can’t lose! And then they add Trump to the equation, especially to the orange guy, she can’t lose!
Because in their minds this guy’s the biggest buffoon that has ever come out of New York City. Well, he wins. And not until this week — and we’re coming up on the three-year anniversary of the election in November — not until this week are they actually starting to ask why and how. Their entire existence from election night forward has been devoted to trying to pretend that what happened didn’t happen.
They’ve been trying to run Trump out of office. They’ve been trying to redo the election results. They have been trying to disqualify the election results, everything they can think of, rather than trying to figure out how he did it.
