The media said he was a circus; the professional politicians called him a sideshow, and the pundits said he held “no chance.” Tonight, they are now saying “Mr. President“!
From almost day one; the Billionaire Industrialist Koch Brothers, Warren Buffett and more lined up against him. Many in the media spent 18-months not just poking fun at the eventual winner, they also hurled almost unbelievable insults as well. This, of course, caused much consternation for the Trump campaign. As if that were not enough hurdles for Trump to navigate, then he had his own party against him for most of the campaign.
Donald Trump did not just defeat the media; he beat his opponents as if they were nothing more than annoying flies at a summer picnic. While he swatted away the pest, he was clobbering the Democrats with precision. As his critics were criticizing, his faithful followers were even questioning some of his campaign tactics. It is safe to say that some of them were questionable, to say the least.
So how did Donald Trump claim the Presidency? How did this real estate developer (with no political experience) manage to pull off the unthinkable?
YOU! You did it Mr. and Mrs. Patriot Grassroots American!
People like a lady from East Tennessee by the name of Cathy Accordino who spent night after night working on social media as a grassroots volunteer. Cathy would sit up until 1-2-3 AM working on Twitter on Mr. Trump’s behalf. Anytime some rag newspaper would publish a negative article about Trump, she would spend hours attacking the story to equal the playing field.
Then we had patriots like Tim Selaty Sr. from South Texas. Tim is computer guru of sorts who happens to also be a whiz in social media as well. Tim came up with an idea last year as to how to organize Trump supporters into one cohesive unit and then send the wolves out to do battle on Donald Trump’s behalf.
Mr. Selaty created (CitizensForTrump.com) as well as other organizations. When the Ted Cruz supporters were threatening a Coup De Ta for the RNC Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
Tim Selaty Sr. teamed up with Roger Stone to produce a Pro-Trump event in Cleveland. The event ended up attracting thousands of loyal Trump supporters. Radio talk show host Alex Jones even got involved.
We had Mr. Jeff Moorman from Des Moines; Iowa who spent countless hours volunteering for our future President. Jeff would work his 8-hours, then spend evening and nights working the phones, knocking on doors, attending rallies and much more. Jeff was also one of the counselors who spent hours on the phone calming other Trump faithful who felt panic stricken when Mr. Trump made mistakes. Jeff would pull us back from the ledge and let us know “it would be o.k.“. He was right, and I say; “Thanks, Jeff, you’re my hero”!
I think it is safe to say that great patriots like Tim Selaty creating dozens of pages and groups on Facebook (and investing thousands of hours on Trump’s behalf) where he would broadcast many of Trump’s events made a huge difference. Selaty wasn’t alone. There were thousands upon thousands of nameless and faceless volunteers who will never get credit for this, but we know who you are and we say “thank you from the bottom of our hearts“. For without you, this would not have happened.
Trump did not just win tonight. Trump became the repudiation of 8-years of demagoguery by the Democrats and this current President. Donald Trump became the “Americans Middle-Finger” to Washington, D.C.
Was it Trump’s latest motto of “Drain the Swamp” or was it his promise to “Make America Great Again”? We may never know, but we do know that Mr. Trump now has the mandate to fix this nation.
