In this essay, two books are first reviewed. The first, Trump's Great Again, gives us a glimpse into the winning 2016 presidential campaign. The second, What Happened by Hillary Clinton, presents the memoir of the losing candidate. Having reviewed both, the essay then delves into a critical commentary on the election, ultimately making the claim that the perceived and obvious inauthenticity of Clinton was less effective than the perceived authenticity of Trump, a lesson that the Democrats would do well to learn for 2020.
