Okay, so disenchanted working-class voters who feel ignored by an “elite” (== qualified) administration have their man in the White House. The thought of DT’s smarmy smile from behind the Resolution desk is bad enough, but now the real horrors begin.
DT has no experience in administration or government and sees things only from the perspective of a lifelong anti-government, tax-avoidance, anti-regulation businessman. He also has the attention span of a toddler. So he’s going to be, by and large, a zero in actual administration of the government, except as a giant sock puppet…
…of what could be the worst, very worst, no good, bad, horrible White House cabinet and major appointees since at least the pre-Civil War era, if not all time. Every post is going to be filled with the deepest Republican ideologue - the Gingriches, Cheneys, Pences, Cruzes etc. They will all be men who do know how government works and can be bent to their collective will; some have decades of experience already under Bush II and Reagan. These aren’t just hardcore right/R’s - they’re the purest of the pure ideologically and the most determined to sweep all liberal taint from every corner of US policy. And DT will do nothing but rubber-stamp and sign whatever they bring him, all flattery turned up to 11.
And that’s assuming most of them are indeed long-term government types, and not Roger Ailes or Breitbart or Hannity or other “outsiders” who will surely fix everything with their kountry wizdom of the kommon man.
DT will appoint one SCJ for certain. Two or three with almost as much certainty. Possibly four. He will, of course, nominate and seat only the most extreme rightist ideologues he can find (== his cabinet can unearth)… because liberal taint, you know.
And he has both the House and Senate.

A hearty congrats to the working class voters who showed them elites what’s what and Sent A Goddamn Message To Washington. At the mere cost of a blow the US - that’s your US, and your childrens’ - may never recover from.
Your new Prez owes a billion dollars to China and thinks Putin is a role model, by the way. I’m sure that will be of no consequence, eight years of hysteria over the ~$100k Whitewater deal notwithstanding.
