Finally, after months of doing their best to promote Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, CNN gets back to reality.
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin observed this afternoon that Donald Trump’s shocking victory means that he basically “crushed two political dynasties” in the span of a single election: the Bushes and the Clintons.
Dana Bash agreed and recalled Barbara Bush saying the country doesn’t need any more Bushes or Clintons (and how it looks like she was right).
Yes, as Bash put it, America really did just have its own Brexit in its rejection of business as usual and the message that people are just done with dynasties.
And the fact that even a lot of Trump’s own voters think he lacked the right temperament to be president, Bash pointed out, is a sign that they were willing to take a risk on something new.
