The Civil War. World War II. 9/11. 11.08.16.
On election night, journalist Mark Halperin said: “Outside of the Civil War, World War II and including 9/11, this (the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States) may be the most cataclysmic event the country’s ever seen.”
More than half of the people who cast their votes on 11.08 would agree, while nearly half would not.
The populous anger that propelled Mr. Trump to the new title of president-elect Trump ricocheted across the philosophical chasm in America -- made breathtakingly transparent as Tuesday night became Wednesday morning -- to bewildered masses, perpetually stinging them with waves of uncertainty and disbelief and fear--fear of an American presidency by the majority living in America.
