How Did Trump Win?

First off, I voted for Donald Trump on 8 November 2016.

This was the first time I had voted since 1997. I stopped voting after 1997 because I could no longer trust politicians anymore. However, since Donald Trump is obviously not a politician, I thought that he might be a decent president.

Additionally, I have never liked Hillary Clinton.

The delicious thing is that Clinton had been working for decades to be president, at least since the 1980s. She had failed to get through the primaries in 2008, having lost the primaries to Barack Obama. And she blew it in the general election a few weeks ago to the least likely candidate in the world. Donald Trump.

Now, I didn’t vote against Clinton as much as I had voted for Trump. However it really doesn’t matter why I voted for Trump. What matters is that many people had voted for Trump. And why.

It is a tale of the “elite” and “joe-bag-of-donuts-america”.

The “elite” are mostly the Democratic party, the Republican party, Social Justice Warriors, Mainstream Media, and Social Media.

“Joe-bag-of-donuts-america” are the blue-collar workers who work as garbage men, waitresses, construction workers, hair dressers, fishermen, policemen, firemen, enlisted military, the guy who fixes your car when it needs to be fixed. These are the people who do the actual, physical, manual, labor of every-day work. We are the people who make the world work. If we vanish from the face of the world, we would be truly fucked.

I am an over-educated “joe-bag-of-donuts-american”. I served in the military, I did manual labor, making stainless steel tubing for a company, I “pulled green-chain in Oregon, I worked as a security guard to pay for university. And although I am over-educated, I will always be “joe-bag-of-donuts-america”.

The problem is that the “elite” pretty well ignores “joe-bag-of-donuts-america”. The “elite” claims that they care about us, but they don’t, and we know that. They use us, abuse us, lie to us, and every four years, they pay attention to us until the election is over, wherein they shit on us for the next four years.

Trump spoke to “joe-bag-of-donuts-america”, Trump seems to understand “joe-bag-of-donuts-america”, so “joe-bag-of-donuts-america” voted for Trump.

And for the first time, I was up on 8 November 2016 to keep track of the election. Now, I thought Trump would win, and when Florida turned red, I knew it would probably happen, and when Pennsylvania turned red, I went to sleep, because although it wasn’t set in stone, but I was extremely convinced that Trump would win.

The next day was a happy day, for me.

Apparently, many, if not all, of the Clinton supporters were really really really pissed.

The thing is, I was always vocal that I supported Trump, I even said as such in “church“, and they, all Clinton supporters, strongly disagreed that Trump even had the slightest chance of winning. Heh!

So, that is why Trump won. The “elite” really didn’t even acknowledge the existence of “joe-bag-of-donuts-america”, and they still do not even acknowledge their existence.

Too bad, we exist, we are here, we surround you, but you do not see us, but we keep your lives livable. Without us, you would probably die.
