At a press conference yesterday, Trump was asked if it bothered him that a lot of voters with anti-Semitic views voted for him. Trump responded thus:
Well, I just want to say that we are, you know, very honored by the victory that we had – 306 electoral college votes. We were not supposed to crack 220. You know that, right? There was no way to 221, but then they said there’s no way to 270. And there’s tremendous enthusiasm out there.
Huh? What is it with this guy and his obsession about winning the election? It’s not like we didn’t know; it was in all the papers. But it’s really creepy that when asked a question about whether or not he was concerned about attracting anti-Semites — in front of the prime minister of Israel — he justifies it by saying how proud he was of winning with such enthusiasm.
It doesn’t matter if you believe in his platform — whatever it is — or not. But if you don’t find this kind of response and behavior deeply disturbing, then there’s something wrong with you.
