How did Trump defeat the Bush and Clinton dynasties and his other opponents? The media (sometimes even Fox news) were fanatically opposed to Trump. These opponents massively outspent Trump.

The Trump technique is to make outrageous statements and pick fights with the media. This works because any publicity is good publicity and the media is very unpopular. Trump made sure he got all the attention. He sucked up all the oxygen and the other candidates couldn't breathe.

Trump also presented himself as an outsider at a time when the people are disgusted by insiders: the politically correct plutocrats and their lackeys.

The Pritzker family embodies the corrupt and decadent political establishment.

I was just thinking there was that navy seal fella that's now romping round in a skirt.... the lad in the papers the other day that was getting all riled about ladettes not being allowed in the military.... maybe he can give Jabba some style and make-up tips? Christ on a bike you wouldn't want to meet that on a dark night its like something from invasion of the body snatchers.

I think Trump was lucky as the Hillary camp was undermined by the e-mail scandal, losing her double-digit lead over it. Otherwise, Hillary could have been the duly elected president. The media kept reporting the scandal in October and US voters totally lost confidence in her by November. The corporate media damaged Hillary's reputation severely as it's always hungry for scandalous stories to boost its profitability.

That's how you win elections. Get enough publicity, present yourself as whatever the voters seem to want at the time, come up with bumper sticker solutions to complex issues (Who knew they were really so complex?), come up with a slogan that fits on a hat, claim that the election is rigged, repeat over and over that your opponent is a crook, and you're in. It certainly worked with Trump.

Now, there's the little issue of actually governing, of getting anything done that will benefit the country, of bringing people together and of enhancing US standing in the world. That's a bit different.

Hope and change...
At least now the economy is changing.
