My election night in Hispanic TV

(My new American Thinker post)

On election night, I was the GOP analyst in the coverage for Telemundo Dallas.

I was not a Trump supporter in the primaries. However, he did something rather amazing on election day. It was truly awesome. He deserves full credit and now total support of the GOP.

Hillary Clinton was a horrible and corrupt candidate. The Democrats sold their soul to the Clintons and this is what they got. How did they nominate a woman who used a private server to carry out secret diplomatic business? Are you kidding me?   

Hispanic Democrat leaders thought that they’d would win by simply calling Trump a monster. Instead, Hispanics actually wanted to hear about ObamaCare, the lousy Obama economy and the public schools that most elected Hispanic legislators do not send their kids to. In other words, calling Trump a monster had a limited value because ObamaCare premium notices were more important.   

Blacks did not really show up, as some warned us days ago. It’s time for Democrats to stop calling everyone a racist and listen to what is happening in the inner city. The Democrats have failed the black community big time.

Obama was also defeated last night because his coalition did not show up. His legacy got blown up on election day. He was on the ballot, and an Obama third term did not happen. ObamaCare’s numbers do not add up and Democrats running for reelection in 2018 will do everything possible to disconnect from it. The Iran nuclear deal is an open question. The economy just never got “stimulated” as they promised in 2009.

We face huge problems and we are divided. Trump will be tested early and time will tell whether or not he can meet them.

My sense is that a lot of Americans last night said some of these things:

1) Stop calling me a racist because I disagree with Obama; 

2) stop calling me a homophobe because I believe that marriage is a state issue; and,

3) stop saying that white policemen target black young men.

It was a very bad night for Democrats. The party has actually been devastated by eight years of Obama. There are no leaders in the horizon. It’s the Democrats who will now have a civil war.

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
