The protests are not about the election. Everyone accepts that the least competent person ever to run for President now owns the office. Everyone accepts that Mr "The Elections Are Riggged" Trump somehow got 60 million people to decide that sexual assault, racism, tax-dodging, veteran insulting, and general "fuck America, I'm in it for me" doesn't matter, and that somehow Trump has magical powers to fix their petty little lives.
60 million people threw ethics, morality and common sense out the window, and Mr Incompetent is already filling the most important jobs in the country with sycophants who can barely tie their shoelaces.
That's what the protests are about - to tell 60 million people that Trump's policies are going to fuck them along with the other 200 million Americans, and that some of us are not going to put up with it.
