@deejoe @waterbear it's not about what you or I care about, the question is what factors had the biggest impact. I'm going go out on a limb and suggest that plundering of the country by the rich while spending taxes on endless wars instead of infrastructure and social services might have played a larger role than some facebook ads.

@yogthos @waterbear @deejoe The Russia thing is almost a MacGuffin. Follow the money. The important part of story is Trump colluding with a foreign power to influence an election, not disclosing his funding from foreign sources, and trying to cover it up-- all high crimes and misdemeanors for which he can (and hopefully will) be impeached.
