The How and Why of Drumpf

Since the November presidential election, perhaps you, like me, periodically ruminate on what has happened. Maybe you are asking yourself, how did this happen?  Are people really this gullible?  What is going on?   I have read articles that have helped me make sense of what is going on. They have given me a new frame of reference on the president-elect.  None of it makes me feel any better about what we are facing in the future.
