They was being polite.
I'll agree that Don Trump wouldn't have gotten up if people hadn't voted for him. But not a majority, and a few thousand voting the other way here and there would have changed things.
He's not going to do that again. The voters have seen how he performs, and they are going to make sure that the horrid mistake is corrected.
Judging by the polls, anyway. He's never had a positive approval rating, and he's sinking.
There are some aspects of American culture and history I admire greatly. Others, not so much.
The whole race thing, for example. Or the fact that America has more of its own citizens locked up than the Soviet Union ever did under the gulags.
Or the batshit crazy health system.
I could go on. But culture is a poor substitute for happiness. If people are dying young, ignorant, and broke, that's not happy.;
