Why I find this election humiliating
Until now, one of the most admirable parts of American exceptionalism is that we have not used our democratic power to elect a demagogue.
Andrew Jackson was close, but at least he was a general who served the country in some ways.
Donald Trump ran as something like Silvio Berlusconi, with hints of Benito Mussolini.
This is a humiliating loss of American exceptionalism.
