How the Hell Did This Happen? The Election of 2016 by P.J. O’Rourke


P.J. O’Rourke is one of my favorite political writers for one reason – his pure and very humorous honesty about the state of politics in America. And this book is no different. O’Rourke takes apart the 2016 election bit by bit and he does it in a way that reflects the crazy and disjointed nature of the whole election cycle. Each candidate is equally criticized and praised, as is the entire election process starting with the primary and caucus process, through the hot mess that was the debates, to the final two choices that literally left the country asking “How the Hell Did This Happen?” Equal parts crying and laughing to help us plow through the next four years!
