After every election, we see media pundits all attempting to spin the election results. For the Democrats, if their party lost it's because of racism and white supremacy or their candidate didn't embrace the far-left enough. it doesn't matter that the GOP winners were racially diverse, it's still white supremacists that elected Black and Hispanic republicans. It can never be a time for self-reflection about the potential that their ideas suck and are unpopular.

For Republicans, the sweeping victory can lead to overconfidence and a misread as to what led to the victory. This year each side trying to spin how Trump affected the election. His involvement or lack of involvement in certain campaigns won. The anti-Trumpers trying to state that the path to GOP victory is to distance from Trump as we saw in VA or in other races by having Trump more involved.

In this episode, I break down my thoughts on the spin and claims.
