All of those liberals out there weeping openly and protesting the election of Donald Trump. Conservative Trump supporters out there celebrating, and some even rubbing the faces of Clinton supporters in her defeat. Little do they know that a Trump presidency may be just a continuation of the Obama presidency, only with his own party controlling Congress to help him out.
I really hope I’m wrong but here are a few clues:
When Trump delivered his acceptance speech early Wednesday morning, the only policy proposal he mentioned was his desire to rebuild “our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals.” Such a plan is at odds with the fiscal restraint enforced by congressional Republicans, but echoes Schumer’s own statements.
Trump has also talked frequently about cracking down on China for manipulating its currency, something that Schumer has spent years trying to persuade presidents to pursue.
Later Wednesday morning Trump called Schumer, who congratulated his fellow New Yorker on his improbable victory.
“It is time for the country to come together and heal the bitter wounds from the campaign,” Schumer said in a statement.
Trump, 70, a Manhattan real-estate developer, had long been a patron of Schumer’s political operation, donating thousands to his previous campaigns and to Senate Democrats in years past, before he embarked on his presidential bid. (Read More)
I wish that was all, but it’s not.

I really, really do wish that was a joke.
Oh, and he’s not going to rip up that Iran deal after all. But don’t worry, he’ll renegotiate. Maybe he’ll call his old pal Chuck Schumer for some help with that. Or maybe if Obama asks him nicely he will just forget about it and leave it in place.
And here is a list of the people Trump is considering for top White House positions. Appointing top staff based on personal political loyalty and not experience or principles sounds just like business as usual in Washington, DC to me. But again, I hope I am wrong, and if I’m not wrong, I hope Trump supporters are going to be willing to hold him accountable.
