Maybe you can't see it if you were a huge Obama fan, but there was a lot of messed up stuff in this country that rapidly accelerated over the past 8 years, and people weren't comfortable with what would've essentially been Obama's 3rd term with Hillary Clinton.
Oh, Obama wasn't perfect. But while he didn't do as well in some areas as you'd have liked, he excelled in other areas. Of course, you can't see where he excelled, because your hatred of him blinds you to them.
And in much the same vein, something you said the other day has bothered me. You basically said, and forgive me for paraphrasing, something along the lines of you were willing to live with the chance that Trump might be a disaster, because you were convinced Hillary would be. Well, that's your opinion. Mine is she would have been a great President, because she was better prepared to be President than anyone in recent memory. She knew what would work, and what wouldn't. And she was the right blend of progressiveness, and old-school Democrat. AFAIAC, this country fucked itself on November 8th, 2016.
