I shot it in early May in Pilsen, Czech Republic. The exhibit documents the seventieth anniversary celebration of the liberation of western Czechoslovakia by General George S. Patton, Jr.'s, Third Army in 1945.
The Democrats decided in the 1970s that they were going to abandon the working class and play identity politics, and the working class bit them. [Hillary Clinton] lost all the rust belt states. You really have to work pretty hard to lose the rust belt states if you’re a Democrat. So, they got exactly what was coming to them.
And all the lefties are worried that Trump is a right-wing demagogue. It’s insane – he’s a . . .
THE LEFT's kinder, gentler approach to Donald John Trump is brilliant. Ms. Clinton, President Obama -- all spoke well of him yesterday. Today's he's having coffee with the president of the United States, who smiles, gazes raptly into his eyes, gently touches his arm, and treats him with respect.
Many on the left are still working through their grief. See, for example, today's sneering editorial . . .
The sun rises today on an Electoral College map virtually tied at 273-265. Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is still on top, but barely. As recently as early October she led by 42 points (Real Clear Politics, "No Toss Up States").
Donald John Trump picked up 21 electoral votes overnight . . .
For the first time, Donald John Trump has reached 45 points in the polls and held it for a second day. His usual practice when things are going well for him is to tweet something stupid or scary and drive his number back down.
WILLIAM McGURN on how the big winner, no matter how the election turns out, is . . .
. . . William Jefferson Clinton (nee Blythe):
Yet Mr. Clinton wins even if his wife loses. Because the Trump victory would mean the American people have bought the argument Bill Clinton has been selling ever since that first bimbo eruption: So long as a man has never pretended he is a choirboy, his sexual life has nothing to do with his fitness for office.
. . . .
[In 1998] Americans learned President Clinton had had a sexual relationship with an intern. Once again Mr. Clinton's initial instinct was to lie about it, publicly and defiantly. The dominant mood was he would have to resign.
But he didn't resign. Instead, he fought back. And he won, largely because he and his wife refused to abide by norms about the decent thing to do in such a circumstance.
In this sense, Donald Trump is the new Bill Clinton. And if he does pull of a win in November, it will be in good part because of a culture that Hillary Clinton did much to create.
