When the election began Millennials trapped in dead-end jobs faced a choice between a Democrat Washington Politician and a Socialist (who could only come from Vermont) and the Millennials chose the Socialist.

On the other side of the aisle working class families sitting at kitchen tables in small towns staring at stacks of bills faced a choice between a dozen Republican Washington Politicians and Donald Trump and chose Trump.

And that was it: Two tribes of Outsiders fighting two tribes of Washington Politicians.

A year and a half later Trump won, rocking the Old World of Washington Politics to its foundations.
