“They Let You Do It”
Four years later, it’s still hard to come to terms with the election-night results of November 8, 2016. Reality TV star and real estate magnate Donald Trump bested Hillary Clinton to become the 45th POTUS, even after the release of his tape-recorded comments condoning sexual assault — captured in this illustration by Lennart Gäbel, which became an icon of the Women’s Marches that followed. Trump has since unleashed much chaos into the world, wielding a wrecking ball for the ages. He has also riled up the realm of architecture with his border wall construction and his proposed “Making Federal Buildings Beautiful Again” mandate.
