What’s Happened Since: Afterword to The Destruction of Hillary Clinton

I finished The Destruction of Hillary Clinton in February 2017 and it was published in early April of that year. Since then, much of my account of the election of 2016 and the forces that combined to install Donald Trump in the White House has been borne out, including events and contributing factors that we were only beginning to learn about when I did my research for the book. At the same time, it has been disheartening and frustrating to watch other facets of the election not only remain generally unacknowledged, but actually continue on, some more virulently than ever. The publication of the paperback in November 2018 gave me the opportunity to discuss those developments, and “what’s happened since” the election. What follows is the text of that Afterword, which appears, along with a revised Introduction, in the paperback of the book, now titled The Destruction of Hillary Clinton: Untangling the Political Forces, Media Culture, and Assault on Fact that Decided the 2016 Election.
