    Article here to digest.

    Most salient quote I found,...
    What I said on election night, #45 has changed everything.

    Does not matter if what #45 is positive of negative, and even if the final conclusion is positive, I believe #45 has fundamentally changed the democratic process.

    Had to stop reading after comparisons to Russian strongmen and shutting out news orgs was mentioned, this author must be taking drugs. Trump is criticized 24/7 on every major news station save one. Imagine that in Russia.

    I think once trump is gone, be it 3 or 7 years from now, it will go back to business as usual. We already have seen enough politicians try and fail to get elected being mini-trumps.

    Not to mention we will be able to turn on a news station without hearing wall to wall coverage of Trump. I've pretty much tuned out at this point save for reading the occasional news article about something Trump did.
