Maybe. Or maybe Trump won because too many people hated Horrible Hillary and her “Deep State” goons.
In my case, I’d barely heard of Trump until the MSM started their campaign of lies against him. My reaction was “anybody they hate that much can’t be that bad!”
Of course, I’ve despised the MSM since ’68 when they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory WRT the Tet Offensive. Maybe I’m the only one?
