I am disturbed that the USA seems to have elected a new president that is a misogynist, racist, xenophobe, demagogue, narcissist, bully and buffoon with an erratic temperament, questionable skills of management, etc. If I was in the USA and had a vote yesterday I would have held my nose and voted for Hillary Clinton even although she was far from the best candidate that the Democrats could have put up. It is important she is a woman, but also that she has extensive experience (when Donald Trump has none) even if she has made many questionable decisions and many I consider wrong in her time. At least you would likely know where you stand with her and you know that a decision process has actually taken place. If Margaret Thatcher had been standing with her history I would have voted for her against Donald Trump - yes that's right I would have even although I consider her to be the worst thing that happened to the UK since WW2. I think the world has gotten very much darker with Donald Trump's election. After all this idiot now has his finger on the biggest stockpile of nuclear weapons in Europe and this is situated beside Scotland's largest city i,e. Glasgow. The UK may say they are their own but they can never be used without the President of the USA.
Some of the people who voted for Trump pretend to be Christians and pretend that Clinton is literally the Antichrist. Here is your list, Trump voters: "Donald Trump is the President-elect of the United States, and he won on a platform of hate, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, sexism, transphobia, Islamophobia, climate change denial and anti-science rhetoric." Now tell me, Trump supporter, which of those you hadn't realised, and which of them you love. If you dare. Here's Garrison Keillor (author and radio personality, read in the Washington post today), a key sentence only. "Alas for the Trump voters, the disasters he will bring on this country will fall more heavily on them than anyone else. The uneducated white males who elected him are the vulnerable ones, and they will not like what happens next." We all knew that from the start.... apart from them.
Here is a quote from a blog post which I read today...

I am now even more scared of the future, than I was when the Brexit vote happened and Scotland voted no to independence (the one and only country in the world to ever do that). It is a triumph of low information voters who seem to vote on emotion rather than logic, experience and policies. If I was an American I would be looking for a way to emigrate as quickly as possible and I don't think I would be alone. We now have a world leader who is closer to being a cartoon character, with about as much sense and depth, than at any time since the 1930s. Very worrying. I do hope he turns out to be better than his rhetoric would suggest until now. Here's hoping. What else have we got?
