How it happened

The dust is settling on the US election shitshow. We may never get used to the concept of the Pussygrabber-in-Chief. America, and indeed the world, has much to fear.

There have been many awful and naive reports from those who helped make it possible. Kneejerk analysis of “why” are mostly too simplistic to bother with, and have their basis in anger. All right thinking people are saying WTF? Why? But the answer is complicated.

In this context, I am totally in awe of Elizabeth Drew’s brilliant, comprehensive piece which is available at the NYR Daily site. It’s the only one you have to read.

If her previous writing is anything to go by, Sue Halpern’s article (“Facebook, Twitter and Trump“) will also be very good. But I haven’t read it yet.
