One Year Ago Today, Donald Trump Was Elected (And The World Was Never The Same)

MetaFilter’s Election Night Thread (uhm, trigger warning?) and a Second Thread That Opened After The First One Became Too Unwieldy As The Reality of What Was Happening Started To Hit People A Year Later, We’re Still Trying To Figure Out How Trump Won (Biggest Mistake Was Thinking He Couldn’t) What It’s Like To Watch The […]
