Trump was Right, by Heath Brougher

Trump did not win the Presidential Election—
for it was hatred that won the Presidential Election.
All those bigots running deep into the valleys of America
where the hills have eyes finally received their spokesperson.
They could finally unleash all that latent racism and homophobia and xenophobia
that lay quiet as a landmine just waiting for detonation.
These vicious voices were finally given a platform
and they ate it right up like swine from a trough.
 ..
Trump was right. He could have stood in the street
and shot someone without losing a single vote
because the election was never about that—
for it was hatred, and nothing else, that won the election.
