Trump is a despicable bigot, a bully, a braggart, a sleazy, thin-skinned egoist - but he is a man
It was supposed to be a day in which history and justice aligned - where the US elected its first female president, not because she was a woman but because she was the most qualified for the job.
Instead, the 45th president of the United States will be a man. Not a noble or inspiring man, nor even a bland and mediocre man, but a despicable and venal man. A narcissist, an egoist, a bully, a braggart, a thin-skinned individual who revels in his own boorishness.
This is the kind of man the American people have chosen, eyes wide open, as the most powerful individual on the planet.
