Maybe it didn’t get publicized but I sure don’t remember so many unhinged people coming out of the woodwork after other presidential elections. Part of the problem this time is that it never occurred to Hillary’s supporters that she might not win. They truly expected an overwhelming landslide. That the media told them from the get go that she would win didn’t help.
Another piece of the puzzle is that Hillary and Obama have only half-heartedly told people that they need to support the transition. They have not told people to knock off the protests and violence. DeBlasio, the NYC Mayor, has actually encouraged more protests as have a few celebrities.
