You get the leaders you vote for

INCUMBENT U.S. President Donald Trump seems to be getting more criticism than congratulatory messages. Kindly allow me to wish the big man everything of the best.

He went after the biggest job in the world and was successful. Who are we to hate him for that? He won fair and square, and is here to stay, so get used to it. At the very least, the “bore” factor in politics is officially a thing of the past and the next four years are bound to be very interesting, if nothing else.

Trump put aside a life of luxury and his billions to travel to each state, make his case and do the hard yards.

Remember, our very own country voted in a man far worse, so why the shock?

Have no sympathy for the U.S. (celebrities seriously need to stop their futile protesting) — the process was fair and you get exactly the government that you ask for.
