In Ann McFeatters’ column “Dithering Democrats handing election to Trump,” published in Sunday’s News-Post, she states: “Trump won in 2016 because millions of voters feel left out, ignored and dissed.” Ms. McFeatters, you are so clearly wrong, and either totally miss, or choose to ignore, why those “millions of voters” (including me) cast their ballots for President Donald Trump. It’s not because she called us “deplorables.” It’s not because of Benghazi and the 30,000 emails, and it’s not because of her and her husband’s disgraceful past behavior. She thought her election was simply a formality — the first woman president, it’s my turn, etc., so she took those swing states for granted, and when she didn’t campaign, or even visit some states, Trump stepped in and took them from her. Yes, I know she won the popular vote, but that aside, the overriding reason why she lost the election was not because voters felt left out, ignored and dissed. She lost simply because the people don’t like her and they don’t trust her! We didn’t like or trust her then, we don’t like or trust her now, and that won’t change no matter how you spin it.
