WaPo’s Cillizza: Can’t ‘Wrap My Mind’ Around a President Trump

Wednesday on MSNBC, The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza admitted that despite the election having been more than a week ago, he is still grappling with the idea President-elect Donald Trump was able to harness “populist anger” and take it to a winning bid for the White House, something he said was “hard” for him to wrap his mind around.

“You know, when I look at those scenes of Trump Tower and all the traffic I’m still stunned by someone who lives in a high-rise building he built in the middle of Manhattan was able to capture a populist anger at elites in the establishment in this country,” Cillizza said. “That is a feat that is still, you know, I guess we’re now eight days later hard for me to wrap my mind around.”
