“The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, is a sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy… It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety.” (David Remnick, The New Yorker).
I stayed up too late last night, watching in sickening disbelief, the election results. I am very worried about my country. This is the worst I have witnessed in my life besides assassinations. This was like the assassination of our country.
