Via Don Surber, the inside look at how the Obama White House reacted to Donald Trump's win on Election Night.
It was overconfidence meeting realtiy.
For more than two years, I’d referred to Hillary Clinton as the “President-in-Waiting.” I’m a worrier by nature, but it was always clear to me that she would succeed President Obama. When the White House began making plans for the visit of the President-elect the week before, I scribbled in my calendar: “Thursday, POTUS will meet with HRC.”
And reality hit in the morning meeting.
I was full-blown ugly crying in the Oval Office as the President gave us a pep talk. I had to turn away and try to get it together.
I feel better just reading his story.
