7. I'm not surprised.

It was the media that tried to ignore that this election was about misogyny and racism and tried to claim it was about the economy. They tried to argue that Democrats should throw women and minorities under the bus in order to please working-class white men. In fact, anyone who cared about the economy would have voted for Hillary. Her message was clear. She was the one who talked about jobs and about health care. She was the one who offered workable plans. Trump only had, "Make America Great (read White-Male-Dominated) Again".

I am really glad this information is finally coming out. It was sickening, after the biggest demonstration of misogyny and racism in history, to be told that the message sent by the electorate was that we should abandon women and minorities to focus on poor, white men.
