My mom is fortunately still with me. My dad left us way too soon, going on 17 years. If he meets your mom he’d tell you the same thing he’d tell me and everyone looking at Clinton’s loss — stop blaming Putin and look inside yourself. He’d say there is still, nearly a year later, no evidence of any tangible “election meddling” more than in any other election (and far less than we do in other’s elections and politics). He’d remind us that if Trump had had a decent opponent, there is no way he could have won. And dad would be right.
