This Primate Is Gonna Bring Us Together

The election is over -- except that Donald Trump seems awfully nervous about those state recounts -- yet he continues to campaign. Last night in Cincinnati, thousands adored him, as they are required to do. This is what we're going to get for the foreseeable future: big public rallies for Trump where he can continue to parade his incredible insecurity and need for adulation.

He actually told the biggest lie ever during the rally, “We are going to bring our country together, all of our country. We’re going to find common ground, and we will get the job done properly.” Those words were on his teleprompter. Other parts of the speech were not:
[He] gleefully reflected on how it was “a lot of fun” fighting Democrat Hillary Clinton, to which the crowd chanted: “Lock her up! Lock her up!”
He complained about his party’s top leaders, prompted the crowd to boo their state governor, referred to a third-party candidate as “that guy” and told the crowd to keep going as they booed “the extremely dishonest press.” He announced his pick for secretary of defense, retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, but told the crowd to keep it a secret until Monday. He mocked a small group of protesters as they were led out: “They don’t know that Hillary lost a couple of weeks ago.”
So much for bringing us together.
