That’s the gist of my new column, about the white nationalist conviction that the United States belongs to white men more than any other group, and that the election was a mandate endorsing them.
While I didn’t get into it in the column, it’s worth noting that no matter how much Trump’s team lies and insists this was one of the greatest electoral victories ever, Trump lost by close to three million votes. His electoral college win was sixth largest of the last eight. He’s wildly unpopular. Doesn’t make him any less president, but we should remind him and his racist, sexist supporters at every opportunity that they do not have the will of the people. They want to believe they do, or they want us to believe they do. Don’t let them.
