When I went to bed last night, the first election results had just started coming in. Each presidential candidate had won their expected states. I kept waking up and falling back to sleep all night and checking my phone each time. When the news came through that Trump had won, I almost couldn't believe it.
90% of Cambridge voters chose Clinton. How can Cambridge be that out of step with the rest of the country? It's because Cambridge is prosperous and thriving, unlike many of the parts of the country where Trump succeeded, where people feel discontented.
I don't want to think about what the next four years will bring. Even two years (until the mid term elections) seems a long way off. How much damage can Trump do in two years? He's got a blank check, the Republicans kept the House and Senate. Ruth Bader Ginsburg better live forever.
