It’s starting again…

Back in 2004 when I moved to Germany, I constantly had to explain George W. Bush and explain why it was he was (re-)elected president. Much of the time my new friends and colleagues sought to understand how such a great country (like America) could vote for such an idiot – Republican behaving badly.

In 2008, the questions slowed, if not stopped.

Obama was understandable, intelligent, and awesome.

Maybe not perfect, but awesome nevertheless.

And, save for the Republican caused deficit crisis of 2011, when I ended up having to explain exactly how that aspect of America worked and why Republicans were behaving badly.

So, it’s been good.

Until the last few months, when the questions started flying: Donald J. Trump? Seriously?

I wish I had an answer.
