Newspaper headlines from the United States on November 9, 2016, reflected more than just who won the presidential election. “STUNNER,” yelled the banner headline of The Record in Stockton, California. “BELIEVE IT,” the Montgomery Advertiser headline in Montgomery, Alabama, read below a subhead, “Donald J. Trump becomes 45th President of the United States.” On The New York Times, “New media again misreads complex pulse of the nation.” Although, Trump’s victory wasn’t really surprising to people who paid attention to the kinetic energy of the social pendulum that was ramping since Barack Obama first took office and that was fueled by white citizens who felt an ultimate threat to their power. To them, their power was back.
