The day after Hillary Clinton’s passionate acceptance of responsibility to blame others for her electoral defeat, 62,979,633 out of the 62,979,636 Trump voters changed their minds and said that they had made a mistake last November. “I hope getting this tattoo removed isn’t too painful.” said one voter. Reached for comment, two of the three who didn’t change their minds said that they didn’t realize that they had voted. “Opiods and all.” said one.
Looking deeper into the massive conversion, it’s clear that converts saw what Clinton really meant when she said among other things that James Comey had stolen the election from her, and that the Russians were culpable.
“Sure those were the words, but what she really was saying was that she sees now that our pain is real. That while she believes that globalization, free trade, and addressing the reality of the illegal immigrants who are here and who are law-abiding and love our country might be best for society overall in the long term, that’s no excuse for her not recognizing how much we believe that those forces harm us, not the abstraction of the working class, but real people with real hopes and real fears.”
“She showed honest vulnerability when she said it was mistake to simply be puzzled by the mistrust we felt for her rather than acknowledging it as a deeply held belief even though she felt terribly wronged by it, and real insight in recognizing that we in turn felt ignored and disrespected by a national media run by people whose life experiences and worldview do not reflect or even accept our life experiences as valid. She gets how strongly we felt wronged, and sees now that we voted for Trump not because we were duped but because we felt he could do no worse by us, might actually help us, and would at least send a resounding shot across the bows of entrenched powers of all political stripes. And of course, she said that deep down, she loved the hats.”
“Clinton was shrewd in recognizing that Trump voters would indeed get what she was really saying, so she didn’t literally have to say those things since she is writing a book with those sentiments that voters can buy as an act of contrition.” said a political analyst. “Smart cookie.”
