Leid Stories—Trump to Clinton: ‘I’m Hired, You’re Fired.’—11.09.16

The brutal presidential election is over and Donald Trump is the last person standing, having defied intimidating odds that he could/should/would be president.
Hillary Clinton’s hopes of making first-woman-president history are history. She now faces an avalanche of legal troubles that might have been kept at bay with a presidential win and with the Democrats controlling the House and Senate. The Republicans shut those doors, too.
