Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have claimed “the popular vote,” but the truth is that the system is so exposed to fraud and closed to oversight that nobody knows who’s right.

Trump, on a post-election "thank you tour," told an audience in Cincinnati that his pick for secretary of defense, retired Marine General James Mattis, is “the closest thing to General George Patton that we have.” The comparison is apt.

Just when Steve Mnuchin, a member of the Goldman Sachs banking community, has been written off as a plant inserted to influence Trump's policies, along he comes with something as sensible and necessary as selling Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. 

With an anti-establishment figure poised to assume the presidency, isn’t it time to put anti-establishment media in the White House briefing room? Other than sacrificing the .1 percent of positive coverage Donald Trump might otherwise get from the mainstream media, it’s hard to see a downside. 

Has Trump sold out? Has he been compromised? The questions remain open, at least for the moment.
