As the world slowly comes to terms with the sobering events of last night, Trump doubters could have one small crumb of hope to cling on to…
In an interview with The National, author and journalist Malcolm Gladwell revealed he believes there’s a good chance Mr Trump won’t be in office very long, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
He predicted that President Elect Trump ‘will be in jail within a year’ because of the various legal issues he is facing.
He’s got so many legal problems, I suspect he will spend the next few years huddled with his lawyers.
Gladwell was referencing the Trump University fraud case, ‘Russian ties’ and questionable charity donations.
When asked why there had been so much focus on Hillary Clinton’s emails in the last days before the election instead of those legal problems, Gladwell simply replied: “Welcome to the great mystery of the American election 2016.”
Gladwell also believes people were opposed to Clinton as a candidate simply because she’s a woman.
To me, the most disturbing lesson about this election is that the United States is a good deal less open to women in positions of power than it would like to pretend that it is.
Gladwell also said the idea that Trump is the non-elitist choice is incorrect.
One guy is the child of privilege who grew up in a multimillion-dollar household, and has every advantage handed to him on a silver platter.
The other candidate is a woman who came from the most ordinary of circumstances – who is the elite in this battle?
Well ,it’s certainly not going to be dull…
