KUSA - With the 2016 election in the books, we dive into what’s next after Donald Trump’s historic win—after a palate cleanser.
This year, voters took the rare step of firing a Colorado judge who got a failing review.
Host Brandon Rittiman took a moment to explain his takeaway from the 2016 race: modern political campaigns need an enema. (Brandon stole that line from the Joker in the 1989 Batman film.)
And we got post-election thoughts from a diverse group of Colorado experts about what the outcome of the race means.
In order, we heard from:
· Tom Tancredo (a conservative former Congressman)
· Ted Trimpa (an influential Democratic operative)
· Meg Froelich (a left-leaning documentary-maker)
· George Brauchler (a Republican district attorney)
