I've been accused of a lot of things on this website, but giving piecemeal replies isn't one of them.

You can have that opinion if you understand the history of this country and the Constitutionally mandated separation of powers not only between the the three main branches of the Federal government, but also among the fifty individual states.
As former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill once famously said - "All politics is local."

So what do you suggest we do? Have a military coup d'état? He is the (illegitimately) elected leader of our country after a handful of people in a few so called swing states overruled the will of the American people and anointed him President. Obama did warn us about Donald, but enough angry white people in a few states ignored him because they were ready to have a "real man" (aka white man) as President again.
My optimism comes from understanding that this country has seen its strife before and has always found a way out of it. We, as do many other countries, have a history of taking two steps forward and one step back. Donald is our step backward, but I have confidence that we'll step forward again...unless he gets trigger happy and decides to start a nuclear war because some world leader sent a mean tweet his way.
