    From all of us at Legal Insurrection, to you, dear reader, we wish you the Happiest of Thanksgivings. May gratefulness and thanksgiving be your constant companions and may you enjoy the fullness and richness of blessings this life has so generously given. We are truly thankful for you. This year, our authors, editors, and contributors share their favorite parts of Thanksgiving, their cherished memories, and reflect on that which makes them grateful.

    A year ago today, Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, winning a tax payer-funded extended trip to the White House. As we do on such occasions, our authors have shared their thoughts and analysis on Trump's first year. For some, today is a celebration of Trump's victory. For others, it marks a most delicious moment in American political history -- the day the Clintons were nationally rejected, embarrassed, and sent packing.

    Author reaction posts are one my favorite things to publish on the site. The breadth and variety of thought and opinion articulated by our bloggers always make my little political heart beam. See: Trump is the Nominee, What Now? Legal Insurrection Authors Debate Legal Insurrection Authors Respond to Trump Victory This post was Leslie's idea. So I reached out to the squad and asked them to share their thoughts on President Trump's first 100 days in office. Without further ado...

    When Donald Trump clinched the Republican presidential nomination, we asked our fabulous bloggers to contribute their thoughts. It remains one of my all time favorite Legal Insurrection posts. Now that Trump is the president elect, have we changed our minds? Have our opinions evolved? Are we joyous, aggrieved? I guess you'll have to read on to find out...

    There are so many thoughts about how we got here. The disconnect between the political class, centered around a small number of big cities, and the rest of the country was enormous. That was compounded by evidence that the media was collusive with the Democrats, laid out in the Wikileaks releases. Hillary's email and server scandal ate away at her like rust.

    Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee. Presumably he will face off against Hillary Clinton. Given the intense feelings and turmoil resulting from Ted Cruz suspending his campaign, I thought it would be useful to solicit views from all of the Legal Insurrection authors. Most of the authors took me up on the offer. The opinions below, listed in alphabetical order by last name or pseudonym, are the opinions of each individual author. I think you will be surprised at the breadth of opinion, from someone who was for Trump long before it was cool to be for Trump, to diehard #NeverTrump-ers. And many variations in between. As for me. Well, you'll have to find my name in the list. Hopefully I did alphabetical order better than I do math.
