Does a Trump Presidency Mean Hope is Dead?

Ronald E. Yates is an author of award-winning historical fiction and action/adventure novels, including the popular and highly-acclaimed Finding Billy Battles trilogy.

Last week in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama said that with the Obama’s moving out of the White House and the Trumps moving in, America is a nation where hope is lost.

“We feel the difference now,” Michelle Obama said, referring to Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton. “Now we know what not having hope feels like. What do you do if you don’t have hope, Oprah?”

What a statement.

After eight years of her husband’s failed “hope and change” policies, more than 62 million Americans in 30 states sent a message that Obama’s dogmas failed miserably and Clinton’s promised plans were just as ruinous.

Yet, here was Michelle Obama, oblivious to the anger and frustration of millions of hard-working, middle-class Americans, insisting the nation is doomed. And naturally, Winfrey sat there nodding in fatuous agreement.

That inability to read the concerns and pain of middle-America is exactly what shot the Duchess of Chappaqua down in flames—and it’s why Obama will go down as one of the worst presidents in history.

Frustrated blue collar voters who are earning the same wages they did in 1988 rejected Clinton’s inflated sense of entitlement, the Clinton Foundation’s pay to play schemes, and the out-of-touch 1960s Haight Ashbury tenets that the zany leftists in the Democrat Party were attempting to shove down middle America’s throats.

I have news for those pathetic, whining left-wing cupcakes. Hope is NOT dead in America. It isn’t dead because the country finally elected a president who actually has the resolve and backbone to implement plans and strategies that will reignite a stagnant economy, restore American credibility in the world, and inspire people with opportunities and jobs that were crushed by Obama and his socialist minions.

And by the way, all of all of this blather about Hillary
