Here is just one link. There are many. Sad.

Not that many at all.

Because as terrible as he is and as embarrassing as he is, people still hate Hillary.

Far fewer hate Hillary than trump though. As evident by the votes in the presidential election and the recent midterms

I think it was a case of “the devil you know (Clinton) vs. the devil you don’t know (Trump)”. The U.S. elected the devil they didn’t know, and now they’re banging their collective heads against the wall.

Perhaps.

It's hard to tell with elections.

There are countless people who voted for her just because she was a woman, not because they liked her.

There are countless people who voted for Trudeau just because of his last name, or because he was good looking.

There were countless people who voted for Trump just because he wasn't a career politician.



People vote for some very very strange reasons, so going only by vote totals doesn't necessarily tell the story of love/hate.

Blind creature that buries head in sand named after Donald Trump

A newly discovered blind and burrowing amphibian is to be officially named Dermophis donaldtrumpi, in recognition of the US president’s climate change denial.

The name was chosen by the boss of EnviroBuild, a sustainable building materials company, who paid $25,000 (£19,800) at an auction for the right. The small legless creature was found in Panama and EnviroBuild’s Aidan Bell said its ability to bury its head in the ground matched Donald Trump’s approach to global warming.

Trump threatens to close border, terminate trade deals, cut aid unless wall is funded

President Trump warned Friday that if Democrats do not agree to his demands to fund a wall on the southern border, he will “close the Southern border entirely” and cut aid to Central American countries -- while pulling back on trade with Mexico.
“We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” he tweeted Friday morning. “Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!”

The tweetstorm comes amid the partial government shutdown that will soon enter its second week. It began last Saturday after Republicans and Democrats were unable to come to a deal on a funding package that would keep the government open and fund Trump’s promised border wall. Trump has demanded $5 billion for the barrier, but Democrats have refused, instead offering $1.3 billion for general border security.

The Art of the Deal – circa: grade two (“I’m taking my ball and going home”)

Five billion dollars to build a wall to keep out the violent rapists and drug dealers from Mexico who account for 0.04% of all violent crime in America. Five Billion dollars. Imagine the impact on violent crime if that money was spent on education, family services and mental health and addiction. A billion dollars here, a billion dollars there – pretty soon we’re talking real money
