    Carter was a good president. At 92, his mental acuity remains sharp. His analysis on how The Establishment got Trump elected is partially correct.

    Ironically, the Dems were instrumental in getting Trump elected by nominating one of the worst candidates in their history. Hillary Clinton is hated right across the board, even by a large swath of Democratic voters. Millions of said voters switched allegiance to vote for Trump because they simply could not stand Hillary.

    In the 2016 election, the candidate who managed 2383 delegates would win the Democratic nomination. Included in that number was 716 superdelegates – past presidents, vice-presidents, senators, governors, congressmen, etc. – who voted overwhelmingly for Clinton: 570 to 44. The rest were non-committal.

    In other words, the Dems decided to coronate Hillary by shutting out all other contenders. In so doing, they paved the way for Trump.

    Bernie Sanders mounted a good fight but was fighting a losing battle from the get-go. He won 22 States and 1831 delegates to Clinton’s 2220.

    Additionally, Trump, the conman, played the electorate for a fool like a good demagogue would. Playing the role of nativist and xenophobe paid off in spades. His limited vocabulary worked well for him. His mantra about “Make America great again” and “Build that wall” was too much for the unlikable Clinton and the Democrats to overcome.

    American elections are like playing a game of chess all by yourself. It doesn’t matter which side wins because you still win since you control the game. Bernie Saunders was all hype too. It didn’t take much for him to sell out to the very same Democrat party once he was pushed aside for good. His far left ideology was and remains a facade. He’s no different from the rest. And the fact that the so-called far left is still clinging and spinning Saunders BS proves that the so-called ‘far left’ politics is no different from the corrupt and phony dems an repubs.

    However, it is refreshing to see a relatively young person be so engaged and well-versed in politics.

    The Democratic Party did not give voters the opportunity to chose a leader of their choice-
    Hillary Clinton was hand-picked and shoved down the throat of Voters. Her “coronation” was short-lived. People just got tired of the Clintons.
    So now Trump, who is democratically elected by half the voters of America, the hysteria is insanely divisive and ugly..
    Trump is a business man not a politician. He didn’t become successful by being a “wimp” . These people are unapologetic, crude, boisterous as adjectives would describe but it is the name of the trade.

    And if Bernie Saunders believe the Democratic Party would have rolled out the welcome mat if he had won the elections, he’ll better wake up from that coma.
    Both The Democratic And Republican Parties are unfit to guide America through these troubling times.
    The politicians are working only for the SPECIAL INTERESTS and not for the people who elected them.
    Do anyone believe THESE BLOOD SUCKERS in Washington would support any Trump Initiative.

    PLEASE!
