fuckyou

No. Really. Just go fuck yourself, you racist piggy white power pieces of shit. You wear shirts that laugh about lynching reporters. (That smarts!) You scream “nigger” at men who turn out to be goddamn saints while you’re whitesplaining them the fucking Boondocks. You teach your kids to tell their classmates how great life will be once they’re deported. You beat up homeless people, for Jesus and America too.

And you think it’s fucking adorable.

Did you #rig it? Fuck! Maybe! I’ve always been a little partial to the Alex Jones side of the sanity spectrum, but forgive me if I wonder: I didn’t see Anonymous riding to Hillary Clinton’s rescue, when four years ago they taunted Karl Rove that they’d trapped his little vote rats in the internet tubes. (Yeah, “citation needed,” Anonymous.) And we all know Trump loves to accuse people of every thing he’s doing himself. Besides, you’ll never convince me John Kerry lost Ohio in 2004. Oh, should I not say that in polite wonky company, if I want to keep my cool pundit card? WELL FUCK POLITE WONKY COMPANY, THAT WAS ‘WONKY’ AS SHIT.

Let’s talk about all the things that will be terrible now! BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE EVIL AND EVERYONE SUCKS.

Are you a black person? I’m sorry, everyone hates you, like, personally :(

Are you Latina? Chica, lo siento!

Do you like doing things in #butts with your husband, who is a man? The next four justices just deported your adopted baby back to Cambodia, too bad, it was nice while it lasted.

Are you just a regular straight old boring ass white person, and the cops don’t roust you none, but you also like eating food and having shelter? WELL DONALD TRUMP JUST BREXITED YOUR STOCK MARKET, and he’ll do for the country what he did for his casinos.

And his airline.

And his steak.

And his magazine.

He lost fucking money on LIQUOR.

And he doesn’t know jack shit about ANYTHING, and say goodbye to that last white-knuckled grasp on the middle class. Oh, you care about “the debt”? He just blew it up by FIVE. TRILLION. DOLLARS. He promised to treat the country’s bondholders like he treated the people who paid off his bankruptcies: by not paying them shit. Hello, Greece! Is life fun there under Nazis?

But sure, “economic anxiety,” you sister-raping neanderthals. Enjoy your brother-in-law’s meth trailer.

Did you like that 4.5 percent unemployment rate? Did you like being able to buy yourself a treat when you went to stock up on toothpaste at Walgreens, and saying to yourself, HEY LOOK, I BOUGHT ME A TREAT? Yeah, fuck a treat, you don’t get your retirement fund, and no mortgage payment, and no job.

Women? Lol, honey, don’t make that face. It’s so ugly on you, that persona. Also: you don’t matter, and you never will.

Muslims? It’s Tuesday. Prepare for your beating.

Media? Oh, yours is coming. Mighta thought about that when you were playing footsie with James Comey.

Oh shit, I almost forgot about Obamacare! Now, if you’re like us, you won’t be able to buy insurance for your family! Instead we’ll get repealed and replaced with “the lines around the states!”

This dumb fucking fuck.

I deny that a woman like Hillary Clinton lost to that monstrous Horror Klown for any reason besides THIS COUNTRY IS HORRIBLE. Fuck your bullshit emails, fuck your bullshit FBI, fuck your bullshit “she ran a bad campaign; she was a dud and he was exciting.” The man is a rambling, boring toddler. If they “loved him,” it wasn’t for his charisma, it was for his flat-out fascism, BECAUSE THEY ARE LIZARD-BRAINED PEOPLE WHO LOVE TORTURING OTHERS.

They get off on it. It fucking gets them off.

Oh man and do they haaaaate us women. Oh man, a bossy old bitch wasn’t going to tell them what to do! And that glass ceiling at the Javits Center. Oh, haw haw haw.

This is where I fake some Pollyanna bullshit to leave you on some uplift, and it’ll make you share this post.

NOPE. THIS POST IS RAZOR BLADES AND HUMAN SHIT AND KILLING EACH OTHER SID & NANCY STYLE.

Come back tomorrow for some pony bullshit, I might be able to fake it for you by then.

Now buy my fucking FUCK YOU AMERICA shirt while you still have any fucking money left.

You stupid fucking dicks.

      he campaigned good for her, especially recently.

      • Marceline

        Which doesn’t change the ugly privileged campaign he ran. Now he gets to go to work under President Trump. Let’s see how his revolution holds up now.

    • Frank Underboob

      The DNC already fucked him. That’s why Trump won. “More electable”, my ass.

    • JaaaaaCeeeee

      Media, President Obama and Hillary Clinton could not be shamed by people in the streets into pausing DAPL, did not help public unions in Wisconsin, did not fight immigration’s expansion of private detention centers, deported more immigrants than ever, did not fight drilling on public lands, were against stopping TPP for ISDN, did not even speak one word in support of California’s proposition 61 and did not use the bully pulpit and campaign to fight sequestraton.

      Willingness not to over promise loses to right wing lies every time, especially when media and donors are already neoliberal neocons, that demonstrated years of willingness to say corporate trade pacts raise wages and create jobs, that austerity is expansionary, we live in a meritocracy and market based solutions work for public goods.

      Blaming the guy whose theory of change (shaming in person en masse, in the streets of DC) you laughed at didn’t work.

      Now it definitely won’t work, since it’s the only remaining way to fight a Republican administration, House of Representatives and Senate, from dismantling the CFPB, Obamacare, food stamps, selling cuts/less availability to SS/disability/Medicare as reform, killing the Wall Street fiduciary rule, passing a national right to work law while refusing to raise the minimum wage, increasing drilling and killing the planet, reducing revenues and increasing the deficit, and doubling the corporate tax break Clinton/Schumer already planned.

      Calling those who voted against Hillary Clinton or stayed home racist, sexist irredeemables too ignorant to understand how great the Democratic party is doing won’t work any better now than it did through the 2016 campaign.

      At some point the Democratic party should instead fight the groups that made it fail, big donors, Democratic party elites promising them the status quo, and the the media promising that it’s more pragmatic than an FDR Democrat, that voters will ignore the DNC leaks if we say they are Russian and bogus, that we should ignore the influence peddling of ALL politician foundations, that we should just ignore Clinton taking $18 million for speeches after being Secretary of State, etc.

      While media and Democratic party elites are pointing fingers to escape accountability, there is a lot of organizing to be done to even blunt what will happen with all 3 branches of the federal government in Republican hands. Blaming almost half the Democratic party, independents and Republicans isn’t a new or effective strategy. Better to use Bernie Sanders than to blame shift to him.

I will never forgive any of these people. Trump is not my president. Trump will never be my president. I don’t know how the fuck I’m even going to deal with this.

    • guppy06

      fuck you every single asshat who voted third party

      Libertarians tend to peel away Republican votes, not Democrat, and I’m not seeing any states in which Hillary getting all of Jill Stein’s votes would have made a difference.

      • Except that polls sugest that the lolberts who would’ve been likely to vote for Trump broke towards him and away from Johnson in the last few days. Polling obviously has a huge black mark on its face this cycle, but if that’s accurate, then Johnson hurt Clinton, too.

      • Gary Johnson pulled 130,000 votes in Pennsylvania. Distribute those votes how you will, the difference will be 60 to 70,000 votes.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    WTF?

  • Tony West

    My first post here:

    I am most disappointed in women. The man is a serial adulterer and sexual assaulter and millions of women pulled the lever for him anyway. We would be fools to ascribe boundaries and limits to these narcissists and sociopaths, and his regime can point with justification to being instruments of the will of the people. We will have cranks in as Secretaries of all departments and agencies. We will have a conservative supreme court for a generation at least. A kleptocracy will be installed because again, the people have spoken. One of the first things they will go after will be abortion. I don’t know what it will look like as far as rounding up and deporting immigrants – but there will be some movement on this also, as well as some kind of border wall. Expect any negative repercussions of these actions to be successfully blamed on Democrats as the media will not fact check allegations. TPP will be dismantled. Our treaty with Iran will be dismantled. Our detente with Cuba will be dismantled. An attempt will be made to dismantle NATO. Trump will be the C in C of the most powerful military in the world with access to nuclear codes and the self-control of a spoiled 8 year old.
    I also blame my fellow millennials, who from exit polling, along with blacks and Latinos, were not enthusiastic about Clinton. Yes, governing can be boring, and Trump is entertaining, but too many of them never got over Bernie Sanders and said that both candidates are equally evil. This sentiment could not be overcome, and I know from a personal level, when I volunteered to knock on doors, phone bank, march, register and everything else I grew weary of having to explain to otherwise successful people why they should vote and the basic workings of our government.
    Idiocracy rules, and I guess we want to see how bad it can really get, but no matter how bad it gets, they will figure out a way to successfully pass responsibility for the disaster onto liberals and deomcrats.

    • Jukesgrrl

      I am a life-long progressive Democrat. A woman. I voted for Bernie in the primary and he lost so I immediately removed my Sanders bumper sticker and replaced it with a Hillary bumper sticker. I worked for her election. I donated money to her even though I had to do without other things I need to afford it. So I don’t appreciate your shitting on women. Yes, some women voted for Trump. But not nearly as many as the men who did. Men who should know better, too, since they claim to know so much about the economy. I am sick with grief tonight and I don’t need a lecture from you, buddy.

      • Tony West

        …and lecture you shall receive. What you said does not make the fact go away that MILLIONS of women voted for a man who brags about sexual assault, and without their MILLIONS of votes, he would not be becoming president.

        Don’t get upset at me because I am bringing an ugly fact to your attention.

      • JMP

        With a congress controlled by the granny-starver, the racist will just sign whatever legislation he puts before them.

    I was hysterical yesterday, when the lines to vote went out the door, all I kept thinking was “They’re all voting for Trump”. A few people I work with told me to have faith in the American people. Not sure what they’ll say today. The only bright spot for me is people that I know that voted for him will have to buy insurance for their kids under 26 and lose all of their retirement and possibly their jobs. Not much. And they’ll still vote to re elect him in four years.

    • Jesse Michael Daniels

      I only wish that only the people who voted for him would feel the effects of his presidency and the rest of us could keep what we have and fought for

  • Yr. Gma

      The racist fucktards from the boonies would have defeated him just as surely as they did Hillary. The Duck Dynasty bunch wanted the “You’re fired!” guy from the teevee. The one who promised to be mean to all of those people who don’t look just like you.

      This wasn’t the fault of the DNC. Might as well blame P.T. Barnum.

      • Frank Underboob

        It was absolutely the fault of the DNC. They nominated a lobbyist-owned candidate who is literally hated by everyone other than the Dem base. Lots of right-leaning people in my social circles would’ve voted for Sanders over Trump, but they didn’t get the opportunity.

    • JMP

      Yes, we know, you hated Clinton because you couldn’t stand the though of a President without a penis. Well congratulations, you got exactly what you want!

    • Marceline

      Now Bernie gets to spend his days in Congress slaving under President Trump. You win.

      • Frank Underboob

        No, I don’t fucking win – we all fucking lose. I hope you fucks are really proud of yourselves. Congratulations on winning the fucking nomination though, because that was what was important, right?

        • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

          It’s easy to say that from the sidelines.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            Dude, fuck you. If Bernie had run and lost, you’d still be bitching and moaning about the DNC. You’re telling me Bernie, as much as I respect him, was going to toss the Republicans and the corps out of the process? Or Russia?
            Fuck you fuck you fuck you.

          • Frank Underboob

            “If Bernie had run and lost, you’d still be bitching and moaning about the DNC.”

    • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

      *sigh*

      You ain’t worth it.

    • Frank Underboob

      You idiots were making up shit about Sanders & bullying the crap out of his supporters. You didn’t even stop after Clinton won the rigged primaries, because you were so fucking smug in your unimportant victory. Never mind that Sanders was the only sane candidate running on a “smash the lobbyists” platform, & by taking him out, you took away the only chance the Left had of beating Trump.
      The fucking polling during the Primaries straight up predicted that Trump would beat Clinton, but would lose to Sanders in a landslide, yet you still spewed that bullshit about her being more electable.

      • jmk

        Oh bullfuckingshit. The reality is that some of this is down to YOU…so nice job, Sanderbot and NeverHillz whingers, who gleefully promoted the narrative pushed by GOP ratfuckers and couldn’t stop delighting the Trumpanzees with the constant “oh she’s such a dirty crimer!!” Because of course, none of you fucking purity ponies will ever admit that your endless and evidenceless slamming of her as a fraudster – which was based on FUCKING NOTHING – might just have contributed to her negatives just a scotch.

        And do you SERIOUSLY have the crust to accuse people of making up shit about Bernie when YOU folks spent MONTHS making shit up about Hillary?

        Do you SERIOUSLY fucking think that an electorate that wouldn’t elect Hillary would have elected a socialist who spent his honeymoon in the USSR?????

        Did it SERIOUSLY never occur to you that the REASON that Limpbaugh and the FauxNooz folks and Tucker fucking Carlson and the Breitbarters and InfoWars idiots were so busy praising Bernie during the primary and pushing the claim that Hillary stole the nomination from him was because they were fucking SALIVATING at the idea of going up against Bernie in the general?

        So enough of that bullshit… just EfuckingNough of it… and congratulations for your utterly shit timing, also too.

        • Frank Underboob

          Go fuck yourself. The one & only upside to this fucking disaster is that all the Sanders supporters you fucks have bullied & sneered at for most of the years get to tell you that YOU WERE WRONG, & WE WERE RIGHT. But hey, why don’t you go comfort yourselves with your super-democratic Primary win, eh?

          • Bemused

            Gee, too bad you couldn’t even manage to gin up enough Democrats to nominate Bernie in the primary, surely you could have magic’d up some Republicans to vote for a socialist in the general. That really would have worked, right. Magic is always a good bet.

            Have fun watching the world bern. I hope you are satisfied, it’s what you wanted after all.

            The thing about you clueless fucks is that you can’t insult us any more than you already have been doing all year, so I’m laughing right at your (formerly) smug faces.
            Congratulation on winning the nomination though! I bet that must be super-comforting to you right now. /s

          • Bemused

            Given the BS you are in here spewing, you’ve managed to prove Every. Single. One. of those insults were correct. We voted the best way we knew how for what we believed in and did the best we could to get a Democrat elected and are heartbroken that that horrible person got elected instead. All you’ve done is piss and moan for 4 fucking months and apparently you have decided that now. now. is the best time to come back and do some more of that. Go home Frank, you’re being an nasty, mean, tone-deaf, spoiler who decided it would be better to set the world on fire than work for a result slightly less liberal than the one you wanted. Feel free to stew in your deluded self-righteousness, but know, in your heart, that you are Exactly. Like. Them.

          • Frank Underboob

            Actually, I stopped commenting on Clinton here shortly after she was nominated, because a) there no longer any point, & b) because I was sick of being gang-banged by the local Hillbots.

          • jmk

            Bullied and sneered at?

            Delightful BernieBros I’ve encountered have told me to die in a fire, told me to shut my mouth before they shove a dick in it, called me a cunt and a cumdumpster, told me I must be a criminal for supporting my candidate, accused me of being too stupid to understand the issues, and of being too feckless and airheaded to keep from being distracted by Clinton’s gender.

            The worst thing I ever called one of you? A purity pony.

            So please – you lot have been so fucking thinskinned that any time anyone said “well, you know… I support Hillary because of her position on…” you’d start shrieking that you were being bullied.

            YOU were the fucking bullies, cupcake. YOU were.

            But it’s AWFULLY funny to see you try to slam me for “why don’t you go comfort yourselves with your super-democratic Primary win” the FUCKING VERY NEXT SENTENCE after you comforted yourselves by saying “I told you so” after the loss you engineered.

          • Frank Underboob

            Just like you fucks told us when we complained about the rigging & blatant DNC bias during the primaries: More people voted for the other candidate; get over it.

          • jmk

            See, the thing is that I’m not whining that I didn’t get my way so let’s burn the system down and it must have been rigged like you tantrumy babies did.

            I’m angry because more people voted for a danger to life on earth than voted for an eminently qualified candidate for president.

            And some of that is because of YOU.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            HE HAD NO CHANCE.

        • Frank Underboob

          You clueless fucks still don’t get that people didn’t vote for Trump’s nonexistant ideology, they voted to smash the Washington machine. It seems to have escaped your notice that, by your tunnel-vision arguments, Trump was also completely unelectable, & yet here we are, with Trump as Fuhrer.

          • jmk

            Aren’t you delightful?

            You picked a really wonderful time for your gloating, and it says a lot about the kind of person you must be, but I must say that I found it most illuminating that you insist on attributing your own motives to Trump voters.

            If they had been voting to “smash the Washington machine,” genius, then tell me why a metric fuckton of incumbents were reelected…hmmmm?

            On second thought, don’t bother… I’m tired of dealing with you and don’t need this thread to make a bad night worse.

          • Frank Underboob

            Because protest voters don’t know & don’t care about down-ballot candidates. Duh.
            And fuck you too, now you know how we felt when you fucks gloated at us the second Clinton won her precious nomination.

          • jmk

            Thank you for educating me. I didn’t realize that this was all about you. I know better now.

            Poor entitled you. How dare I think of anything but your needs and feelings.

          • Kavefish

            You clueless fucks still don’t get that people didn’t vote for Trump’s nonexistant ideology, they voted to smash the Washington machine.

            …pssst, Frank. Hate to break the news to ya but Bernie is ALSO TOO part of that Washington machine.

            He’s not owned by lobbyists, which is what people care about.

      cut the shit.

      • Frank Underboob

        the people elected her

        Well, the Party base elected her. Too bad that their votes weren’t the ones the Dem’s needed to secure to win the actual election.

        • Lascauxcaveman

          Yuk, math iz hard, in’t?

          • Frank Underboob

            Yuk, math iz hard, in’t?

            Too hard for the DNC & their loyal Hillbots, apparently, who still don’t get that it’s not the party base that you need to win over if you also want to win the General. So what do they do? They nominate someone who’s not even super-popular with their base, & is hated by every other voter.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        Conservatives only like states’ rights when they’re doing something conservatives like. I’m waiting to see what Trump’s DEA does to the marijuana industry in states where it’s legal before I hold out any hope for that strategy.

  • Tony West

    Second post:

    The other issue is what message does this send? Why bother playing by the rules, when you can be born rich and do whatever you want and maybe become president someday?

    Seriously, what is the point of following the law and not screwing others? Donald Fucking Trump will be president. A generation of kids will grow up thinking that if you don’t take what you want when you want, including sexual assaulting someone, then you are a sucker, because Trump became president.

  • UK Canuck

    I thought I felt my world was altered after the Brexit vote. Nope. That was like waking up to the status quo compared to this morning’s news. My American friends, you have my best hopes and wishes for the next four years.

    • M.E. Lawrence

      Thank you. I’ve heard similar remarks from friends abroad. I appreciate your kindness, especially now that it’s all just starting to sink in.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Thanks but it’s not as if we earned your good wishes. You have every reason to think poorly of our country as we ruin the economy of the western world because our people are too stupid to support the public education that made this country as great as it once was. We’re toast and we’ll probably drag Europe and some of Asia down with us.

      • UK Canuck

        You may, collectively, not have earned good wishes but they’re real nonetheless. There are enough people of good will and intent in your country to make the rebound happen “big league” in 2020 and maybe in the midterms, too. You – and, yes, the rest of the world – will have to weather the economic fallout in the meantime. It won’t be easy.

    • M Dubs

      Don’t blame 538. They gave Trump a 28% chance of winning; unlikely, but possible.

      You can go ahead and blame the people who voted for him though. That’s legit.

    • Yr. Gma

      The pollsters need to figure out their shit. There is a huge flaw in there somewhere.

      • Only around 10% of people have been responding to polls lately, and there have been a lot fewer of them. That’s a huge part of the problem.

    • Darkrose

      There’s some suggestion that there was a reverse Bradley Effect, where people didn’t want to admit they were voting for Trump.

      • Sheepshagger

        I don’t get it. No hint at all that this would happen and then bammo. Fucken weird.

      • snigsy

        If that’s so then the Trump voters KNOW he is a fascist yam and yet they still voted for him. SMH.

    • zeddy303

      More people were unhappy than they wanted to admit. There are a lot of rural armpit sort of people in this country and there voice hasn’t been heard (now it has) More people were racist than wanted to admit. More people were tired of Washington (Ok, well they all were pretty loud and clear about that). And that was more than us.

      • Lascauxcaveman

        And yet, they voted for Bamz. twice. I didn’t consider Romney, for example, 1/10 as noxious and trump.

        What gives here?

  • Transcript of Trumps Acceptance speech:

    Trump: Ah, hello everyone. Achtung. [the last few standing people take their seats] My name is Donald Trump and I’m the President. [applause] Ah thank you, thank you. I’m happy to see that all of you.were affected by the elction like I was. Now, we all know why we’re here, and I believe we all know what needs to be done.

    Woman 3: [in pink dress] We sure do. [the crowd voices its approval]

    Trump: But, I think it’s best we don’t talk out loud about it until we have most of them on the trains heading to the camps. [the guests fall silent]

    Elise: [in orange blouse] Wha- what does that mean, sweetie?

    Jack: I’m not sure, but- uh. [stands up] Folks, I just wanna interrupt for a second and say how remarkable it is that this man with small hands brought us all together. The election is causing a revolution of spirituality, and we owe Steve Bannon and this small handed man our thanks. [the crowd voices its approval]

    Trump: [bows a few times] Thank you, thank you very much. Now, in order to do what we [his face turns ugly] all know needs to be done, we are first going to need more support. I think we should all go out and make at least one other person read Breitbart.

    Man 3: Oh, what a great idea! We each make it our responsibility to convert one more person!

    Guests: Heheh, great! Yeah! Great idea.

    Trump: Yes, and then we can begin the cleansing, if you know what I mean.

          I could be chill as fuck and still believe the only good fascist is a dead one.

    • That’s assuming that (1) there is an election in 2020 and that (2) we don’t have a nuclear war that destroys civilisation before then. I wouldn’t bet in favour of either of those outcomes at this point.

  • major_asshole

    My computer’s clock says it is now 2:15am. Not much in this world will bring me to drink, and even fewer things will convince me to drink this late (early?). And yet, when MSNBC aired Donald J. Fucking Trump’s victory speech, I decided that I had four bottles too many of something called “Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale.”

    Oh sure, it’s only 5.9% ABV, but I’m two bottles in and it’s…it’s not doing a fucking thing.

    Tonight is making me fear a lot, and for a lot of things. I fear that my nieces will have to learn Russian in school. I fear that my mother, a goddamned cancer survivor, will have her health insurance benefits pulled out, her disability benefits yanked away, and her house foreclosed because suddenly she can’t make the mortgage payments. I fear that my transgender boyfriend will have his life turned into even more of a nightmare than it already is because PTSD and schizophrenia aren’t enough of a fucking life destroyer even before you throw gender dysphoria into the mix. I fear that because I am unemployed I can look forward to a fucking reeducation camp sponsored by Trump University. I fear that people like me who fall onto the LGBTQ+ spectrum will be victimized, shamed, and criminalized for who we love and are.

    At this point, I would normally try to say something hopeful, like how if Trump gets a criminal conviction and sent to prison his vice president would at least be better and less of a dickwad. Instead, if that happens, we’d get Michael Pence. Because fuck it, why not put the overzealous Christ botherer into a position of national power, backed up by a Congress whose two houses are solidly behind him?

    In seventy-two days, I will fear for my life and my safety–and the life and safety of others I love–like never before.

    Hi from France, I’m stunned as you all are, I hope this will be a wake up call for all of us in Europe and a warning that we need to be pro-active so as not to let this happen here, but it seems as if the facists have decided to take over a world that used to be democratic. I’m sending you tons of virtual hugs and all the loving kindness that I have. After the time to cry our hearts out and go crazy has passed, will come the time to stand up and fight this!

    I say this with Righteous pride wholeheartedly but I’m wtih you on this Rebecca. I denote feeling proud to stand with you on it because If republicans ever asked me to apologize for the sentiments apology would depend on remorse and pride is the polar opposite of remorse so it’s impossible to feel sorry about something your proud of.

    Fuck this White Trash Ignorant Redneck Right wing hell hole.

    The only problem I’ve had during this entire election is liberals seem to think too mcuhof this country. I mean hillary’s slogan “america is already great.” Look I voted for her so don’t get angry at me but I actually I thought “america was never great” which upset a lot of people was a lot more accurate. We’ve clearly BARELY gotten past the period in which George Wallace stood in the school house doors to prevent black kids from attending.

    This is a Hick country wtih Backwards ways of thinking and the Republican party in particular stands out even among Other conservative parties in the world for being right of them all. They are off the charts.

    This is an ignorant backwater of a country with people eatting Beernuts and watching football that is barely better than the 3rd world and is full of Racist Sexist homophobic troglodytes

    • I’m pretty sure she’s already taken the popular vote lead.

      • Last I saw, CNN had it down by about a million, which can easily be overcome by California, Washington and Oregon if they continue at their current rates.

        • Maybe I’d misheard then. It would be nice if she won the popular vote, for sure.

          • Drunken Irishman

      Like I said in the other thread: it’s legal until Attorney General Giuliani starts enforcing federal marijuana laws again. I wouldn’t expect unmolested marijuana use anywhere in the US much past the beginning of February at the latest.

      • LouiseLouise

        I think Trump and his buddies are big on mj and plenty of other stuff…don’t think they will mess with that.

    • Celtic_Gnome

      Let’s see what Trump’s DEA has to say about any legal marijuana in the country.

    • LouiseLouise

      My favorite….thanks

      • phoenix00

        Not for the next 4 years…..

        • ExpatGirl

          We can hopefully make some ground in two years. Hopefully.

          • phoenix00

            Wishful thinking? Ambitious thinking? Maybe tomorrow, but for now….

          • phoenix00

            Two years will feel like forever…..

          • ExpatGirl

            I’ve been informed other places that not enough seats will be up for us to make much of a dent. My moment of optimism shattered.

      • Bemused

        They didn’t steal it, they won it fair and square. May God have mercy on our souls.

        • Nope. Vote suppression probably won them NC, FL, MI, and quite a few others. Nothing fair about it.

  • Saxo the Grammarian

    Whatever may come, one must be steadfast. Two sayings I hold close to my heart:

    “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”
    — John Wesley

    “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”
    –Martin Luther

    Also poetry:

    O Star (the fairest one in sight),
    We grant your loftiness the right
    To some obscurity of cloud —
    It will not do to say of night,
    Since dark is what brings out your light.
    Some mystery becomes the proud.
    But to be wholly taciturn
    In your reserve is not allowed.

    Say something to us we can learn
    By heart and when alone repeat.
    Say something! And it says “I burn.”
    But say with what degree of heat.
    Talk Fahrenheit, talk Centigrade.
    Use language we can comprehend.
    Tell us what elements you blend.

    It gives us strangely little aid,
    But does tell something in the end.
    And steadfast as Keats’ Eremite,
    Not even stooping from its sphere,
    It asks a little of us here.
    It asks of us a certain height,
    So when at times the mob is swayed
    To carry praise or blame too far,
    We may choose something like a star
    To stay our minds on and be staid.
    — Robert Frost

    And of course, music:

    IMPORTANT FUCKING INFORMATION.

    Today–the 9th of November–marks the anniversary of the beginning of Kristallnacht. You know, when a fascist party began its directed action against a group of people who were deemed unworthy of even basic human decency.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      Yay! Kristalnacht! I’m in!

      Seig Heil!

  • badhombreinatacotruck

    Once again we have awakened from our long national nightmare of peace and prosperity.

  • elan

    Your best column ever. I agree with everything you said. I just got into a fight with a Bernie Bot on the Binders Full of Women facebook page because she was already saying that Bernie would have beaten the asshole. I apologized for being rude, then realized she’s Canadian, so I told her to fuck off again. Yeah, I’m angry.

    • jmk

      I’ve now encountered four people who are doing that.

      Look, I get that people process grief, anger, and fear differently… but I’m thinking that those folks are just being assholes.

      • Lascauxcaveman

        Srsly? I Love Bernie, but srsly?

        Give it a rest Bernie Bros.

  • Sedagive

    Thank you Rebecca. You’re right: America just broke, and we might not be able to fix it. Countries don’t recover from things like this – they tend to lose wars and get restructured. Only that won’t happen this time, because we’re the biggest player on the planet, and we’ve got a ton of nukes.

    The global system just completely collapsed, and a crazy ignoramus will soon be calling the shots.

    • tomamitai

      Only that won’t happen this time, because we’re the biggest player on the planet, and we’ve got a ton of nukes.

      And the guy with the responsibility to order a retaliatory strike is a Putin admirer.

      • LouiseLouise

        Nah, Putin just wants to play with him to see what he can get,, money, oil, let him invade the Baltics etc.

  • zeddy303

    FUCK YOU POLLS (you’re antiquated data). FUCK YOU MEDIA (for not asking good follow-up questions).

    • Jukesgrrl

      Or ANY follow-up questions. Or doing any fact checking. Or providing any education about how government works. And especially FUCK THE MEDIA for repeating Republican talking points over and over and over until they became accepted as fact — following the model established by Joseph Goebbels.

    • Odd Jørgensen

      • LouiseLouise

        We may need to establish a phone line for emergencies for us if things get too weird…keep it in mind we might need a place to go here or abroad.

        • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

          I’m seriously hoping Canada comes up with a program of some kind. I never thought I’d think of hte words “flee to avoid persecution” apply to my life.

  • barrixines

    Hello – I’ve never commented on this board before but I have lurked a while and just enjoyed what smart folk you all are. I’m a Brit (living abroad) and still a bit numb from Brexit so this news hasn’t quite hit me in the way it will have done you people. I just wanted to send my best wishes to you all from Europe – millions are with you. My heart really does go out to you right now.

    • Sister Artemis

      Thanks for reaching out across the pond, and please keep coming back. We need all the support we can get, but maybe you folks over there do too? Welcome to our little enclave, somewhat safe from the winds that are surely about to hit us.

      • barrixines

        Well obviously there are many parallels for us. I live in Spain and I have just about given up on the wrongheadedness coming from the UK on a daily basis. Obviously my main concern with both Brexit and now this is how Europe holds. We definitely are all in it together.

    • jmk

      I kind of feel compelled to apologize to all the folks in other countries for this.

      But welcome…and thank you for being kind.

      • barrixines

        Oh I understand the compulsion – we gave Brexit to Europe. You’ve done what we’ve done just on a slightly more jaw-dropping scale.

      • Cheesus Crust

        I know, right? Me too… We are all so sorry….

    • phoenix00

      Another fellow colonist here (Canadian), I’m betting we’re right with you. We’re numb from Brexit too, now this.

    • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

      You’re very kind…espcially considering Americans would never have done the same. Thank you for the kind words….and can we crash on your couch.

      (Kidding, but thanks for stepping otu and saying that, really – it’s stunning).

      • barrixines

        My door is always open, my teapot’s always warm and Barcelona is lovely in the autumn (well November as autumn doesn’t technically happen to say February). On top of that at the bottom of my apartment building is a Mexican restaurant run by the Adria brothers and I am sure their tacos are spectacular. ¡Venceremos! and all that.

        • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

          Thanks! I saw the movie Barcelona and it looks so lovely…I just can’t possibly listen to them speak spanish. Growing up on the border, it drives me effing crazy. But you’re very kind.

  • snigsy

    When does The Revenging start? He’s going to see this election as permission to get petty revenge on everyone who didn’t acknowledge his awesomeness.

    • Candy Apple

      I’m wondering when/how he’s going to force everyone to say “Merry Christmas.”

      Because I, for one, am not saying it. Merry FuckTrumpMas.

  • So anyway, I won’t be leaving the country, because I can’t afford to. Hell, I’m getting kicked out of my apartment on Feb 1st because the building got sold, and I can’t afford to move somewhere else. So if anyone is starting up the resistance, and you need a soon-to-be homeless mother of three, I’m here. I can’t leave; I can’t change this. All I can do is try to fight whatever hell is coming.

    • phoenix00

      Damn…. hope you and your little ones land on your feet.

      • We’ve been through it before, and we’re pretty resilient. I don’t know what happens now, though. Food stamps probably saved us last time we were homeless. It wasn’t much, but it let us save some cash for housing. I don’t know that that safety net will be there under a Trump/Pence/Ryan administration. But, you know. Maybe there will be workhouses or something.

        • Celtic_Gnome

          I’m also worried that it won’t be a Trump/Pence/Ryan administration. The Freedom Caucus in the House is going to demand someone a lot more ideologically pure than Ryan.

        • phoenix00

          We all need a piece of your resiliency right this moment! Not worth cash, but psychologically it damn well counts.

          • Head down, get through it, survive. Fight the bad stuff, keep the faith, teach the kids to do the same. I have some experience doing that. I’m scared, and I think my life is about to get plenty uncomfortable, but I can do uncomfortable. I’m a lot more scared for my LGBT/POC/disabled friends, honestly. And I’m scared that my kids will never have anything better.

        • LouiseLouise

          Seattle has a pretty good program for homeless….they are building Tiny homes in an area and a lot of food banks around….Mostly Liberal cities.

  • yyyaz

    Well, time for a retrospective? No? I thought not. Bundys on the loose, shitstains re-elected, sanity flushed down the drain as “Real Merka” shows the power of the colon to overrule any higher function.
    Sadly, there is no more to be said until a higher consciousness (alien invasion, nuclear war, self-awareness (Ha ha, just threw that in to see if you were paying attention)) is accepted by the drumpfproletariat. In other words, Game Over, thanks for playing.

  • Sister Artemis

    Thanks for channeling the rage I cannot even put into words. Please please don’t go away, because you, Rebecca, and the whole wonkette corporate empire have NO FUCKING IDEA HOW MUCH WE NEED YOU RIGHT NOW. Or maybe you do, but PLEASE know that this whole awful night, checking in at Wonkette has been one of the few things that kept me sober while driving, and not completely losing my mind.

    I love you. Seriously.

    • And we love you, too.

      …Again, I’m pretty certain I honestly do speak for everyone, here.

      It’s almost like I’m becoming the Wonkette Spokesdude.

  • Candy Apple

    Bill Maher was right, Americans are stupid.

  • Let’s not get too down. After all, we survived Bush/Cheney, and they knew how to manipulate government in their favor. Trump and those around him have already pissed off half their own party. As long as the Democrats do to Trump what the Republicans did to Obama, he’s done in two years.

  • pyrophilia

    My friend michael claims anyways that he’s been adopted by a Woman up in Canada and basically says I’m welcome to come but that would be highly conditional on convincing my Overly empathetic love interest who will almost certainly be heartbroken by this (I haven’t caught up with her) and will nearly certainly try to protest about staying here for the people who need her to just Finally agree to run away from this place.

    • I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted. But the rest of the world deserves better than this. The only way I can make sure this world power isn’t used for evil is to stay. Even when it is used for evil. Especially when.

  • Idaho4644

    I gave up 12 years of my life for this country… shitty duty assignments, shitty food, shitty pay, being away from my family for months on end and at times being scared shitless that I would die before I saw them again. And all for this? I feel sick right now.

    • Sam Hain

      Thank you for your service…we’ll come back from this.

      • Idaho4644

        Yes, I am sure you are right. Over the years it had all seemed so worth it, especially these last few years under President Obama. It seemed like we had come so far! I’m sure I will feel that way again some day.

        • I am sure as well. I am, however, not so certain that will be in my lifetime.

          • Idaho4644

            I’m the father of two teenagers and I am far prouder of those two kids than anything I ever did in the Army. It’s not even close. I owe it to them to keep trying.

  • Trump down to a 700,000 lead in the popular vote (57,722,993 (47.9%) to 57,016,772 (47.3%)). We need that to flip so they can’t claim a mandate of any sort.

    • Sparger

      Do you think he cares if he loses the poplar vote. He does not. He will have the house, the senate and the supreme court. I guess the pubs being assholes as usual paid off.

      • Its a question of whether the Democrats will stand up and resist. If they have the popular vote, they might.

      • LouiseLouise

        Yeah but you know how he can’t stand not winning everthing., I say we just keep repeating that there are more of us than you…just to annoy the shite out of them.

    I was wrong.

    We will apparently fill our environment with toxic shit, have no memory, and eat whatever is fed to us.

  • At the corner, turn left

    I think we need to remember, for what it’s worth, that the Cheeto Benito has only a lead in the popular vote, to date, of 739,152. Dat ain’t no mandate by a long shot. Yeah, the EV looks bad, but a lot of his GOP cohorts still don’t trust him, hypocritical shits that they are. The Congress may be a bigger mess than it was before, because infighting. Who knows? The Trumpkins got their Trumpistan. How quickly will buyer’s remorse set in when it become painfully obvious Trump can’t come through on any of his grandiose promises? So it goes.

    • He hasn’t won the popular vote. He currently has a plurality, which might slip away as the California vote comes in.

      • At the corner, turn left

        OK, edited above.

        • Let’s hope it flips. The pundit class needs a reality check before they hand the keys to the kingdom to Trump unchecked.

    • phoenix00

      Sure popular vote may be a consolation prize, but an empty one after the Senate and House.

      (god damn I sound like a downer….)

      • We need a rallying point. Having the popular vote shows that Trump not only didn’t win a majority (He won’t), but that he didn’t even win a plurality.

        • phoenix00

          Rallying points it is. Whatever shred of hope exists we hang on to it.

    I can’t even crack a joke. We have elected the biggest piece of feces to be nominated in modern times. A man who embodies our worst traits: r@cist, bigoted, xenophobic, anti-immigrant, etc. He’s a narcissist, petty and vindictive. He’s ill prepared to handle the presidency, he knows nothing about governing and policy. He’s against women’s choice, gay marriage, doesn’t believe in climate change and much more. I feel despondent in ways I never felt when other Republicans won the presidency. Not only will the country suffer the consequences of this election, so will the world.

      I’ve never remotely wanted a gun before, but I’m honestly thinking about buying one now, so when the deportation squad comes for all the US citizens with the wrong skin tone, we can shoot them. >.>

    • Drunken Irishman

      Scared…disgusted…sad.

      I really feel bad for Pres. Obama and his legacy. He deserved so much better than to be followed by Trump. I’d say we deserved better than to have him as president…but I don’t know. This country sucks sometimes.

  • Popular voted down to 575k. 47.8% to 47.4%. There are 3 million votes outstanding in California alone. That might be enough.

    • Sister Artemis

      Improvements in California won’t help Hillary. She already got the Cal electoral votes

      • Jennifer R

        The point was that a second mismatch in who won the popular count and who won the EV count may happen. in our fucking life times. Fuck america.

      • Drunken Irishman

        No but I can bitch again about how more people voted for the Democrat … like I did all of the eight years Bush was in office. Might not mean anything but it’s cathartic.

        • It also, hopefully, makes it easier for the Democrats to stand up to the Republicans. They wouldn’t allow Garland on the court, letting the people decide. Well, the people are split, so we shouldn’t let anyone on the court again until the people make their decision clear.

      • The election is gone. It is a question of denying any talk of a mandate. Already a majority of people oppose Trump. How much better if he loses to Hilary in the overall vote.

  • Daisy

    In my floor lounge still. I have work at 8, but fuck it. My philosophy lecture is cancelled, so I don’t have to pretend to care about what Aristotle thinks.

    WTF is going to happen in a few years when the Trumpies in the rust belt realize they’ve been played ? Many of them are armed, not all of them are going to believe Trump when he blames liberals.

    • Cheesus Crust

      The economy is going to crash and crash hard – Trump will just make millions and walk away, like he always does.

    Your protest vote against the candidate who would have held the line was as effectual as a angry 4th grader pissing their pants in a hygiene class.

      Wonder what that vapid sell out Sarandon will have to say tomorrow. No, strike that. I don’t care what that twit says anymore.

      • Cheesus Crust

        Sarandon and her little minion, Jill Stein, can fuck right off thankyouverymuch. Those 2 twits need to disappear from public view, and never speak up again.

  • Bub the Bad Zombre

    Well my hair is gone, big fucking deal. First brushcut in about forty years, and I’m sure some folks will be chuckling at me tomorrow. But fuck that. I’m on my second very stiff drink, and I may have another. I am distraught for all of the people in the U.S. who will be fucked over in the next four years. For all of my friends on Wonkette…I love you, and I grieve with you. For all those who will be discriminated against and marginalized. I can’t stop thinking about it. It doesn’t seem possible. And yet, here we are. I wish there were something I could say or do that would help you, my friends. I’m getting drunk…and I keep remembering this poem by Emily Dickinson, which says how I feel better than any words I could come up with.

    A door just opened on a street–
    I, lost, was passing by–
    An instant’s width of warmth disclosed
    And wealth, and company.

    The door as sudden shut, and I,
    I, lost, was passing by,–
    Lost doubly, but by contrast most,
    Enlightening misery.

    Good night everyone.

    My congressman won. He’s Hispanic and a Democrat and I love him. A little bright spot in my world.

    • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

      Dems held a Senate Seat and a House seat, took 2 more House Seats, flipped both chambers of the State Legislature, legalized pot, and funded school repairs. We may also still pass tighter background checks for guns. It’s small beer, but they’re wins.

      • Adam Field

        Until all of that gets overturned by the fed (technically pot already was illegal, the feds have just been ignoring it). State rights only means “no abortions”, duh.

      • ExpatGirl

        True that. But I have capacity to worry about lots of things and people at once.

  • amindofitsown

    I still can’t believe this, an ignorant con man who had access to his own fucking Twitter account taken away days before the election because he can’t control himself is now running the country. People actually think he’ll bring change, that he’s no politician. Is willful blindness a thing?

    • JoeChristmas

      And almost every other incumbent is re elected.

    • phoenix00

      This election result says yes.

    • Adam Field

      He will *absolutely* bring change, just not the kind we want. I mean, the economy was doing pretty well before, so a massive recession would technically be change. Then again, before, we were getting more accepting of gays, minorities, women, etc., and that’s about to change too, so I suppose it is what his voters wanted – even if they are also all going to be out of jobs by next year, at least they’ll have “solace” that teh gays have it worse.

    Rebecca, please tell us that Wonkette will be around forever and ever, because I’m so fucking sad and deeply depressed right now, and Wonkette is one of my few lifelines to sanity. I shit you not. 40 years of fighting the Big D – and almost losing to it too many times – and finding Wonkette (thank you, Little Lulu) has been better than any medicine I’ve ever taken. I’ll probably never return to the US, but I still love my country because of people like you and the other denizens here at Wonkette. I can’t do much from Japan in the fight against the Tangerine Nightmare, but your writers and commentors, unallowed though they may be, help me bigly, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Boo to the clueless shit-fer-brains that voted for a train wreak and YAY for the Wonketariat and all sane, Hillz-voting people. We need each other now more than ever. It would be so cool if I could meet any one of you some day. The door to our tiny house is never locked, our two cats are very friendly and there is plenty of quality tea. Mountains an hour’s drive to the west, the ocean 2 hours to the east. Going for intense cat therapy now. Over and out.

      Time to make another donation. Keep our Wonketeria open.

        • Sister Artemis

          Those of you who can’t donate? please don’t feel bad – we all do what we can do. Just keep the conversation, and let those of us with a little more figure out how to pay the bills.

      • sbSutton

        Yep. Wish my broke college ass could afford more. Sorry about Iowa. Fuck this place.

      • Sister Artemis

        One of my first thoughts. I’m doing ad-less right now, and if I weren’t so scared about my income in the next months and years (I’m commissioned – you think I’m going to do well? I am not), I’d triple my monthly bit. For now, thought, I’ll hold steady and pray a lot.

      • Cheesus Crust

        No worries, guys. I will see about upping my monthly donation to help out. We will need this place of unfiltered rage for the next few years.

  • Drunken Irishman

    It’s time Democrats started acting like Republicans. Fuck America. America doesn’t deserve a functioning government. They had their chance to elect an adult and they chose not to, so, now the Democrats just need to take a page from the GOP handbook and obstruct the fuck out of Trump. Filibuster everything. Especially his Supreme Court justice. Make him, and the Republicans, walk through glass to get what they want. No compromising, no bending. Make it hell.

    Why? Because the American people obviously don’t give a fuck if you work to make government work. Republicans have been obstructionist twats since day one and they’ve been paid for it by winning control of the House in 2010, expanding their gains in 2014 and winning the White House with Donald Fucking Trump in 2016.

    Become a Do Nothing Congress. In two years, when the shine is gone and Trump is polling in the 30s and Republicans are at 2006-levels fucked, take back the House & Senate and sit on your ass for two more years until we go elect Michelle Obama to clean up this shit stain we’ve left on the American flag.

    • I agree with most of this, but the Republicans will nuke the filibuster as soon as they get the chance. There’s little Democrats can do.

    • RobKanC

      question is, will there even be elections in the nex two years?

    • snark-lurker

      but we still have the same critters in Congress, so nothing’s changed–they’ve got theirs and (with notable exceptions) they didn’t really care who won this

    • Master Contrail Program

      Amen. Fight fire with napalm. It’s not like they can do worse. This may very well be about the survival of the species with these slime gaining power worldwide…….

      As much as I’d like to go along with you on this, it’s sinking to their level. There are far many who voted FOR Democrats, let’s not condone wasting their votes.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      More like America can’t afford a functioning government. The less these assholes can accomplish, the better – but with the administration, congress, and soon the courts all working to make America suck again, things are very grim indeed.

    • UnsaltedSinner

      Filibuster will soon be gone. And the problem with obstruction is that it will often hurt innocent people far more than the GOP. Not much Dems can do until the midterms.

That people who are getting shot by the police for no reason are to blame for their own situation? That people who were born in other countries aren’t as good as the rest of us?

    dear ‘Trix,

    tonight I was catching up on the FacePlant while I wait for Stan Stanart to quit drawing out the fucking Tax Assessor-Collector election in Harris Co. TX because he’s such a complete piece of garbage and I ran across this thing. this thing that could do all writers in:

    James Patterson in a FacePlant ad promoting National Novel Writers Month. because when we elect a new POTUS who knows nothing about the US Constitution, we should follow it with a shot of a guy who doesn’t write, but pioneered the “everything that used to be wrong with writing, but, fuuuuuuck…it’s gotten worse” style of having an embossed name that is larger than the book title. because that’s fucking comforting.

    I am with you in spirit, but I’m pretty much ready to give up.

  • pstockholm

    Some thoughts.
    Blue states can do ACA style or single payer health care? Even better if they do it regionally. CA OR WA NV NM. Northeast. Or why not a Blue State Plan – that’s 180 million people. Mandate, subsidies, slightly increased taxes, strict rules on insurance companies, state option to compete with insurance companies.
    All bets are off now, so time to raise the stakes.
    The idea being to erect an alternative blue state reality, alongside the renewed effort at the national level (although if Trump pulled this off in 2016, he or worse could do it again in 2020, despite, or rather especially because of, the economic chaos).
    Also, any hope of ending the blue state subsidies of red states? My understanding is that Brownback took a hit amongst Republicans in Kansas for his shenanigans, although not enough to actually change their regressive mindset. The grinning trumpenlouts need to feel the pain, and their local elites (with more “at least he’s an R” people than trumpenlouts) who after all are embedded in local economies and need them for their sustenance, need to feel that pain as well.

    This has been a bulletin from the resistance. Stay tuned.

    • georgiaburning

      Start the clock- January 21, 2021

    • UnsaltedSinner

      Problem is, even when they feel the pain, the sunk cost fallacy may still keep them on his side in four years. They’ve invested heavily in this guy.

      • pstockholm

        OK, maybe there’s not much to hope for there. And obviously playing with “pain” is playing with fire. Not that that’s a huge problem when the house is burning down around us.
        But clearly the gloves have to come off, and an alternative reality based on blue states has to be pursued. That whole “there is not a liberal America and a conservative America — there is the United States of America” is a dead letter at this point. There is a willingly fascist or, for now at least, post-democratic America, and it is borne up and celebrated by the Republican Party. It needs to be encysted and wither away from it’s own contradictions and dysfunctionality.

    • Odd Jørgensen

      They will proudly proclaim that by being vigilant they heroically prevented the election from being stolen by all those riggers.

    • Drunken Irishman

      Simple: By mentioning it, and the throngs of poll watchers the Trump campaign sent out, they were able to keep Crooked Hillary from rigging the election.

  • I don’t want to go to sleep. Because I know if I do, I’m going to wake up and think that it was a bad dream, or something, for a minute. And then I’ll remember that it’s not, and it will be like watching it happen all over again. And then I’ll have to look my little ones in the face and tell them we lost, and know that as worried as that will make them, they don’t even have a clue how bad this could end up being.

    • Sedagive

      This is eerie. This is almost word for word what I told people when they told me to try to get some sleep after I learned my first husband had unexpectedly passed away. It took me about three day…

      And here I am, still up after hours and still too wired to think I might get any sleep any time soon.

            It’s not slut shaming — this is going to be our FLOTUS.

            And you don’t speak for everyone in the community. Just saying.

          • thixotropic jerk

            Who you see as a slut hence = slut shaming.

            This is the person who will be representing our country. Most of our first ladies don’t have nude/semi-nude photos floating around.

          • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

            I’m with you on this one. It’s not like you took the photo surreptitiously, she willingly sold it (them) to magazines for cash. You didn’t call her a whore, you posted a picture she sold.

            This isn’t slut shaming, this is Trump history.

          • smr06va

            My point is that it saddens me that we are going from Michelle Obama as FLOTUS to this person who modeled nude for money.

          • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

            I get it. I’d be less ashamed of what she did for a living than what her husband has done for a living.

          • smr06va

            It also says a lot that Trump, with all his money, obviously preferred to have these photos floating around instead of trying to purchase them.

      • The Wanderer

        I know from obscenity, and Trump’s not one. He’s a grotesque, a grotty grotesque.

    So, that happened. Woke up at 4am and foolishly checked the news.
    So, the redneck vote energized itself and smashed everything, and now what happens?
    Can they govern? They’ll have to try it now. They’ve got house, senate and presidency.
    But they hate each other, you know.
    And now that they’ve beaten us, they’ll have to turn on each other. The Establishment vs. The Tea Party vs the Christian Right vs the Trump Fascists.
    I said once, months ago, back in that more optimistic world, that the only thing worse for Republicans than a Trump loss was a Trump victory. They cannot repudiate him now. And does not know how to do this job.
    Will Trump do whatever they tell him? He thinks he’s a genius, so no. And nobody knows what he’ll do.
    But next election, there will be no wall. America will be less great. Black and brown people will still exist. Jobs will still have gone. Will his base forgive him that, now that they know their power?
    Bad times ahead for everyone, but will the political animals go along?
    Ironically, career politicians who care only about getting elected are now OUR ONLY HOPE.
    And you “burn it all down” folks? You “Start a Revolution” folks? You deserve what you’re going to get. I’m just sorry the rest of the world will have to come with.
    As a white male, I feel a need to apologize, but now more than ever, that kind of racial and gender brotherhood is a crock. I have far more in common with the thinking, loving half of American than with those assholes.
    For what we are about to receive, etc.

    Youre making it far worse than it is, and im no trump follower. Donald was hoping to ride the talk news gravy train, now he has to figure out a way to be POTUS without having to do work. All hillary had to do was play for the electoral college since D overtly refuses to think, but like a true Democrat she got close to the finish line and assumed a victory. If she can’t beat trump at basic game theory then she has nothing to offer, might as well go with the wildcard.

    • Greyhame

      I appreciate the effort to soften the blow, but It just means Pence will be the de facto President, hardly a consolation prize.

      • Msgr_PantsuitNation

    • Sister Artemis

      1) no, it’s fucking terrible
      2) sure, DT was aiming for the entertainment bucks, but he’ll pass his responsibilities to Pence and his ilk, which will be pretty fucking terrible
      3) Hill did not assume a victory, though she displayed confidence; they’re not the same thing
      4) game theory? really?

      • ExecutorElassus

        W didn’t really have any interest in governing, either, and by the time he was in the WH he was suffering late-stage dementia (watch his sharp tongue fast-talking the shit out of the TX gubernatorial debates, then watch him plod through simple sentences like six years later). Look how that turned out for us.
        Oh god, I went to bed last night thinking it’d be OK, and I wake up to this shit and I have that awful feeling in the pit of my stomach that takes away my appetite and I can’t even start trying to process this, because it’s going to be fucking *awful*

      • LoveSW_Prequels

        Imo , the universe just handed Trump a big steaming pile of exactly what he asked for, and now its do or die with no sneaky way out.

    Everyone who was happy about pot legalization? That’s gone; it’s still illegal under federal laws, and state legalization was able to go forwards because the Obama Justice Department decided not to enforce marijuana bans in states that legalized it.

  • Welcome to the selfish short-sighted Republican wonderland where all your selfish short-sighted Republican dreams will come true! Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are going to play Trump like the developmentally delayed cousin that he is.

  • Bub the Bad Zombre

    The ONLY silver lining right now is the thought of how quickly all the ignorant motherfuckers who cast ballots for Drumpf are going to be disillusioned when they realize he can’t do ANY of the things he promised them.

And if I should find myself trying to eke out a primal existence in a dystopian hellscape three or so years hence, I can assure you that assholes in MAGA hats who come looking for succour will quickly find themselves roasting on a fucking spit.

I know that it is online and you are relatively anonymous and you have impulse control problems and you like to imagine people with strong egos are hurt by your childish responses and you can’t imagine anyone’s needs beyond your own, but really is there anything in that response that could even remotely be construed as having anything constructive in it?

          I thought I was doing my duty in volunteering as a CA poll worker – and even with the annoyance of getting assigned to a precinct fairly far away in a town I was unfamiliar with (and so got lost trying to find several times making a practice drive to the other day), and having to work the whole day from setup at 6AM to finishing close-out which ended up around 9:15PM, it would be worth it considering the historical election we were in. Then it turned out to be a horrible disaster instead, holy fuck.

      What it meant and has always meant was “literally anyone can become president if they are a rich white male with connections”.
      The Obama years will have been an anomalous Golden Age.
      On the plus side, the Dems might decide to fight for congress in 2018, and the next Gerrymandering session happens in 2020.
      It’s not much, but I’m looking for reasons to be optimistic since I fucking live here.

  • Warning, if the Democratic Party follows the arc of the British Labour Party they will move to the right.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    I have strong Déjà Vu. This is exactly how I felt on Nov. 4, 1980, when I saw that Reagan had won the election. Shock, despair, grief, total disbelief that Americans could possibly be that stupid, and a feeling that my country had been betrayed and destroyed. I hoped I would never have this feeling again.

    • Sister Artemis

  • Read the FAQ

    Four years will go by quickly. Yes, there’s SCOTUS but we’ve been there before, too. And it’s going to be hard to get much done in four years even with a GOP controlled congress; remember that they are at war with each other, too (and Hillary would have had an incredibly difficult time trying to get anything passed in 4 years; the House and Senate are really where change is needed). By then these voters will realize what they have done. All those disenfranchised voters who felt compelled to vote for him will soon be even further disenfranchised. They will realize the grenade they thought they had tossed into the system was really themselves strapped to a suicide bomb.

    We lived through Reagan and GW. We’ll make it through this, too. Yes, it’s sad we are taking 8 years of great progress and going backwards now —including a likely new recession. But let’s not stop fighting. Look at California. We endured the GOP and Nixon and Wilson and Reagan. But look at it now! I had only two voting choices for the Senate, both were women. And both were Democrats. Often it’s the worst that has to come before it can get better.

    What just happened, happened. There’s nothing we can do about this election. Freaking out over it won’t change it —that will only create damage to oneself (stress and anxiety are killers). The best remedy is to ACT LOCALLY. Do good deeds. Join the ADL or the SPLC. Get active at the local level, do volunteer work. Be a decent human being. That’s all one can do. Just don’t ever, ever quit.

    • ExpatGirl

      We aren’t just going to see 8 years of progress disappear. More like 50.

      But, yeah, act locally is spot on.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      If by “we” you mean straight white America, yes, straight white America withstood Reagan and 2 Bushes, and a stacked Court and will survive this. But how many black boys will die at the hands of militarized police? How many black and brown and red children will be stunted from the poisoned water? How many women will die from back alley abortions? How many new marriages will be severed? How many gay teens will be beaten? Because straight white America just said that all that is ok with them.

      • Read the FAQ

        fwiw, I’m not exactly straight white America myself. And yes, I clearly understand what you mean and I understand those ramifications. But I don’t think (hope) that much will occur right away in 4 years and after those 4 years (likely in less than 4), the GOP will be further splintered by this choice they made. And there are still many progressives in government (and they aren’t going to give up). It will be clear to ALL of America (even including those who brought him into the presidency) that this was a mistake of incredible magnitude. And that’s when the GOP will collapse like it did in California (and yes, we suffered in all sorts of ways for decades under the GOP here). At least this is my hope. All I can do is hope. And act!

  • Panika MCD

    “The night before we left the house, that last time, I was walking through the rooms. Nothing was packed up, because we weren’t taking much with us and we couldn’t afford even then to give the least appearance of leaving. So I was just walking through, here and there, looking at things, at the arrangement we had made together, for our life. I had some idea that I would be able to remember, afterwards, what it had looked like.

    “Luke was in the living room. He put his arms around me. We were both feeling miserable. How were we to know we were happy, even then? Because we at least had that: arms, around.

    “The cat, is what he said.

    “Cat? I said, against the wool of his sweater.

    “We can’t just leave her here.

    “I hadn’t thought about the cat. Neither of us had. Our decision had been sudden, and then there had been the planning to do. I must have thought she was coming with us. But she couldn’t, you don’t take a cat on a day trip across the border.

    “Why not outside? I said. We could just leave her.

    “She’s hang around and mew at the door. Someone would notice we were gone.

    “We could give her away, I said. One of the neighbors. Even as I said this, I saw how foolish that would be.

    “I’ll take care of it, Luke said. And because he said it instead of her, I know he meant kill. That is what you have to do before you kill, I thought. You have to create an it, where none was before. You do that first, in your head, and then you make it real. So that’s how thy do it, I thought. I seemed never to have known that before.

    “Luke found the cat, who was hiding under our bed. They always know. He went into the garage with her. I don’t know what he did and I never asked him. I sat in the living room, hands folded in my lap. I should have gone out with him, taken that small responsibility. I should at least have asked him about it afterwards, so he didn’t have to carry it alone; because that little sacrifice, that snuffing out of love, was done for my sake as well.

    “That’s one of the things they do. They force you to kill, within yourself.

    “Unless, as it turned out. I wonder who told them. It could have been an neighbor, watching our car pull out from the driveway in the morning, acting on a hunch, tipping them off for a gold star on someone’s list. It could even have been the man who got us the passports; why not get paid twice? Like them, even, to plant the passport forgers themselves, a net for the unwary. The Eyes of God run over all the earth.

    “Because they were ready for us, and waiting. The moment of betrayal is the worst, the moment when you know beyond any doubt that you’ve been betrayed: that some other human being has wished you that much evil.

    “It was like being in an elevator cut loose at the top. Falling, falling, and not knowing when you will hit.”

        The prospect of a Trump presidency is very scary irrespective of how long it is. The best thing about it is that he has prevented the dishonest, untrustworthy, corrupt Hillary Clinton from EVER being president. For that Trump should be thanked. What in the world was the Democratic Party BIG MONEY establishment thinking in nominating Hillary? They invited catastrophe.

    • phoenix00

      Hasn’t he already?

    • Who’s going to impeach him? The Republican Congress? Even if they did, so what? Then we get Pence. Get rid of him, and you get Ryan… Assuming they don’t replace him with someone even more soulless. Scratch the surface and you just get more shit. Trump is gawdawful, but he’s one guy. The real problem is the multitude of fuckers who embraced him, propped him up, and voted for him.

      • Longstreet63

        We’re getting Pence anyway. Do you think Trump’s going to want to do any real work?
        Pence is also deeply stupid. It’s only next to Donnie that he looks smart.
        Although, it is possible that victory will make Trump uncontrollable.

        • Yeah, I’m not even sure. Either we’re getting de facto Pres Pence, which is horrific, or we’re getting uncontrollable Trump, which is horrific. There’s no winning.

        • Drunken Irishman

In a way, after spending 8 years attacking a very good man (Obama) with some of the most vicious, unfounded attacks and lies imaginable, America deserves this whiny fraud. At least half of America does. Half of America really does deserve a used car salesman for President, the problem is that the other half of us have to live and work next to these folks because democracy. We literally just elected a guy who mocks disabled people, brags about groping women and bragged suring an actual debate about how he doesn’t pay taxes – a billionaire who literally bragged about not paying taxes and people cheered him for it.

    I just woke up, refreshed my screen, threw up, turned on NPR and made a pot of coffee. I have always said our democracy is strong enough to survive any chuckle head for 4 years this will put that theory to the test. Well there was still a Germany after Hitler so I guess we have a chance.

  • What did we learn today?

    1) Low Information Voters are the heart and soul of the Republican party. Trump rode into power on the backs of the scared and uneducated. Want to bet how many of Trump’s voters think Obama is a secret Muslim born in Kenya? Or that Hillary murdered Vince Foster? The Republican party thrives when truth is murdered.

    2) There is no longer a conservative party in America. We have, at best, a reactionary, nationalist party, at worse a proto-fascist party. The main question is how many on the right are willing to sell what is left of their souls to support the one who is the only one that can fix things and make this party great.

    3) Democrats need to do something to get the rust belt moving. And it can’t be some crazy ideas like shutting down trade or thinking we can bring low end manufacturing back to the Midwest and compete with the rest of the world. Pittsburgh is a good example of what we need to encourage across the Midwest.

    4) Democrats need to build up their ranks. We need to go back to the 50 state strategy that Chairman Dean implemented during the Bush era. This means that those on the far left need to put up with moderate democrats, and none of this ideological purity shit that the Republicans demand. A big broad party is better for us all than a small one that is pure.

    5) Democrats need to be willing to stand up tall and resist the right. Republicans are not the only one who from day one can work to try to make a person a one-term president. Why, given his natural divisiveness, should Trump be given any more leeway than Obama?

    6) We can’t let Republicans get away with their lies. Already, the Trump talking heads are saying you shouldn’t be afraid, he didn’t mean anything he said during the election. We should never forget what he actually said, or be surprised when he actually acts on America’s worse nature.

    7) We can not despair. The combined forces of Osama bin Laden and Dick Cheney couldn’t destroy this nation and much that is good about it. We must revel in what is good with America, and never cease to point out when Trump and his minions follow what is worse in this country.

    All right, I’m off to bed. Tomorrow begins day one of the put an end to Trump movement. Let us not forget that most people in this country did not vote for Trump or want his ideas.

Except it’s WORSE, because we didn’t know W. was gonna be that bad going in, and this time WE KNEW. THE MSM TOLD US. WE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT KIND OF HORROR IS COMING!.

    So here I am, in front of a computer, pondering suicide and second amendment solutions. I honestly don’t know what to do for the next four years.

    • Drunken Irishman

      I took the day off. I thought I took the day off because I expected to be up all night waiting for the full returns and then just relaxing the next day…but part of me took Wednesday off because I had a bad feeling. Bad juju, man. It didn’t feel right. Not gonna lie, it was mostly positive…but I just kept having nightmares of this event…that the polls were off, that Trump had supporters out there who lying or underreported. I took it off because, I think deep down, I knew I’d need a day to cope. Fuck.

      • Swampgas_Man

        Please God, don’t let me see anyone in a MAGA hat today, I don’t think I can control myself.

      • JurisGal

        Same here.

    • snark-lurker

      i was attacked & called names here for not laffing at tRumps chances
      prop by people too young & jaded to really grasp the nature of true horror’s existence, and that bad shit CAN happen to US
      now it’s going to happen
      i was not laffing before and i’m not laffing now

      but i been called worse than “doofyfeet”, i was called a “scat porn perv” right fucking here

    I was first stunned with disbelief when JFK was murdered, I was in 4th grade, living in Texas of all places – it was raining on that November 22 and we had to come in out of the rain and watch a boring film and over the intercom came the announcement that Kennedy had been shot. My best friend at the time, Butch, stood up on his desk and yelled out “I hope the N … lover dies!”
    It was a rough time for me, I no longer wanted to spend time with Butch, my country had fucked up in the worst possible way, and I was truly depressed about the world I found myself living in and hating everything about it – depressed majorly at 9 years old.
    The Beatles came to America 3 months later and there was a reason again to be happy to be alive.
    I am sorry the election didn’t go like everyone expected. Unfortunately there will never be another The Beatles. There is a new day, though, every coupla dozen hours or so. A day that’s never been before.

        There is the possibility that Trump will not go full RWNJ, he was, after all, a Democrat 3 years ago … and I truly don’t think he will push for all the crap he campaigned on – and the most ironic thing, it seems that he may have been subversively manipulated into entering the race by the “pied piper” strategy of the Clinton campaign itself. Anyway, my optimistic opinion is that Trump was only acting crazy and ramping up the fear and anger so that he could get elected. At least his speech last night seemed rational and compassionate. Time will tell

  • Ghetto Tarzan

    You constantly hate on white people all day every day and this is what you get. I’m glad you Marxist authoritarians lost.

    • OrG

      are you lost?

        Hopelessly.

        • Ghetto Tarzan

          We won. You lost. You lost because you’re hateful bitter people.

            You need to find God.

          • Ghetto Tarzan

            I did and God says he doesn’t know you.

            God doesn’t exist. He’s a fairy tale, like the tooth fairy or Santa

            Ooooh. Was that supposed to be an insult?

          • Longstreet63

            We lost because you lot are suckers. That comment proves it.

            We won!! Don’t be a sore loser.

          • JMP

            So why did you vote for a con artist who has failed at every single thing he has done in his life, even combing his hair?

            No, we lost because YOU are hateful bitter people.

            Why would that happen. I’m not black. Don’t be a sore loser.

      • Ghetto Tarzan

        You lost!

      • snark-lurker

        lost, yezz

    • Cheesus Crust

      Ironic, considering you’re the person who, apparently, voted for the authoritarian, supported by the Marxist.

      So why don’t we just deal in reality, you racist twat: you are going to find out what it’s like, exactly like, to live in an authoritarian society that will be built by the man you voted for. Own it.

      • Ghetto Tarzan

        It’s glorious that marxists like yourself lost.

        • Cheesus Crust

          Well, I’m not a Marxist, comrade… but you seem to very much like their style of government.

          • Ghetto Tarzan

            If I did I would have voted for Hilary like you did.

          • Cheesus Crust

            Oh, are we going to devolve into I know you are but what am I? Enjoy the next 4 years. I have a feeling I will come out of it better than you will.

          • Jen B_VA

            You do not even know what a marxist government is do you.
            Hey, here is a clue for you.Everything Trump Promised you?
            That. Right there.

          • JMP

            Now, be fair – a Marxist government at least tries to provide for the people’s needs; a Trump government would be far, far worse than Marxism, and on the level of a Francisco Franco, a Caligula or a Lucius Cornelius Sulla (currently still my winner for most evil world leader ever, considering how his abuse of the office of Dictator gave the title its modern definition, he set the stage for the fall of the Republic, and of course the Proscriptions – but Trump has a chance to beat him!)

          • Ghetto Tarzan

            Yes, Marxism is exactly what the Democrats hope to institute. We won. Don’t be bitter.

        • mardam422

          You don’t know it yet, but so did you, bro.

          • Jen B_VA

            He already said when the shit hits the fans he plans to blame liberals anyway. They don’t know.

          • Ghetto Tarzan

            I didn’t vote Democrat. What are you talking about.

        • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

          Why don’t you up your game and join your allies down thread? There are a couple down there who want to burn people alive for the crime of being Jewish. You guys would have a lot in common!

          • Ghetto Tarzan

            Don’t be bitter that you lost.

          • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

            Doesn’t really matter to me. I’m retired and rich.

          • Ghetto Tarzan

            Then by all means continue to be bitter.

      • Ghetto Tarzan

        Don’t be a sore loser.

        • Cheesus Crust

          I would say, “don’t be a turd”, but I realize that’s a bit above your IQ level. So, try not to trip over your own stupidity in the next 4 years.

      You are such a sucker.

      • amindofitsown

        He/she doesn’t care. I think this will turn out like Brexit, a lot of people voting a certain way without any real idea why they’re doing it

      • Ghetto Tarzan

        How is that? I didn’t vote Democrat.

    • Kavefish

      Good morning, Dupe!

            It’s amusing the assumptions you drag around behind you.

  • DougW659

    Rebecca,

    What happened last night is the political equivalent of the market collapse of 2008. The gains of many years…. decades even, were wiped out in a single blow. But my advice for people then, and my advice for you now…. is not to abandon the ‘market’. Those who did so in 2008 made a horrible mistake, and it would be the same if we abandon our political marketplace today.

    Many people will tell you that the stock market goes ‘up and down’, which can make it seem like a scary place to put your future. But when you back away from the charts and look at the really long term, the market moves continually in one direction. Up.

    The same is true with our political movement. There are crashes and bear markets, but when you back away far enough, you can see that the movement has always been in the right direction. So we’ve had our ‘correction’ for those who see fear and hate as paths to power. The ‘re-correction’ will come. I don’t think Hillary will be part of the change for the better, which is too bad… but it will come.

    Stay strong, and hopefully we’ll all send you some more money as soon as we can… we’re going to need you.

    • Lark_in_the_AM

      I desperately want to believe you are right. However, we have handed the reins of power over to a group of people who will be doing their damnedest to disenfranchise everyone who disagrees with them, and will, through a court they will now have complete control over, deem such laws as “Constitutional”. How we will be recovering from that any time soon, I am unable to foresee. I have never in my life been so pessimistic about the future of this nation.

  • OrG

    ……man….I really wanted a taco truck on my corner…and all the guns confiscated,…and deplorables in FEMA camps…and ….I can’t remember the rest……………………

      • Kavefish

        Weird coinkidink.

  • Longstreet63

    So, the thing is, if I’d told you any other day of the week that 55% of Americans were suckers, you’d have thought I was underestimating.
    It’s just that this time, Bubba put down his meth pipe and went to vote.
    THEY are the suckers, not us.
    THEY won the election for a lie and it won’t take long for them to realize they’ve been scammed AGAIN. Just like with Abortion and gay marriage. Those won’t go away. They’re worth too much money to the scammers. And racism, because it has been shown to be worth a mint, must be kept boiling, so no action either way on that front. They need to dangle something in front of the suckers to keep them paying.
    The suckers bought in today and dragged the rest of us. But this is their fault, not ours. Theirs.
    They are suckers and will get what suckers get: an empty wallet and contempt.
    Tomorrow is another day.
    In January, we get to watch the Republican Party eat itself.

    • YoNastyBunny

      If the GOP devouring doesn’t start within the month, I’ll be surprised.

        • Biel_ze_Bubba

          Eew.

        • YoNastyBunny

          I think some GOP who thought a trump presidency would never happen are now shitting themselves. Granted, they’re probably relieved that he didn’t cost as much electorally, but I figure the old guard may be cringing at 4 years of trump’s loose lips and his egomaniacal know-it-all schtick.

          • Cheesus Crust

            I hope you are right… I have the cynical view that the vast majority of them are salivating right now over all the damage they can do, unchecked, for the next few years.

    Looking back at Trump’s tweets from 2012 where he railed against what he mistakenly took as Romney winning the popular vote and winning the EC…calling for a revolution. And the exact same goddamn thing is going to happen to him.

    Revolution?

          Well, with eight states now voting to legalise marijuana….

          • JMP

            That’s over. Marijuana is still illegal under federal law, and there’s no way Trump’s Justice Department will respect state legalization – for either recreational or medical use – like Obama’s did.

          • Jen B_VA

            too much profit to be made still fighting it

          • h4rr4r

            Which means nothing.
            After the presidential outcome marijuana is almost certainly going to be prosecuted by the DEA harshly. Sure individuals will be able to grow in states that allow it, but retail operators will face federal prosecution and getting a license is all the evidence the feds will need.

    For now, it’s “keep calm and carry on”. But I just am going to have to go to my grave believing that the election was indeed stolen, because I literally cannot believe that the people I share this alleged country with would be so hatefully insane as to hand, not just the presidency, but the congress and the scotus, too, to that racist, bigoted, lying, scumbag con man. Bye, bye representative democracy, hello fascist oligarchy. I am in mourning for the country I love and thought I knew.

    • goonemeritus

      Most people are neither all good or all bad, given the right amount of fear and disappointment our species is capable of making some really self destructive choices. Better angels will revisit many of the voters that supported Trump. People will wake up many years from now in a world that is better, more just and more united. I don’t see that happening in my lifetime but what the hell it’s not me.

      • Lark_in_the_AM

        Better angels will revisit many of the voters that supported Trump. Too fucking late. Even if they wake up today and ask “My God, what have we done?”, we will not, in my lifetime nor in the lifetimes of my children, undo the mess that is going to be made as a result of their selfish fears.

        • goonemeritus

          Germany was looking pretty shinny by the mid 70’s sure we don’t know how Trump will compare to Hitler but eat a lot of fiber get enough exercise and try not to be a minority.

      “because I literally cannot believe that the people I share this alleged country with would be so hatefully insane”

      • Lark_in_the_AM

        Ignore them. The hateful trolls who are here to shove their shit in our faces really are a very loud, very tiny minority, feeling emboldened by the disaster. They are too stupid to understand that what is about to happen will leave them even worse off than the rest of us. The bottomfeeders will get to have their little party, but then, they’re at the bottom of the economic and social ladders and think this will put them up top. They don’t realize they’ve been suckered by the con man they voted for.

    It used to be fun sparring with snotty Brits at the Guardian. Who hate America and have always portrayed us as the worst. Throw in the Punist Krembot trolls, it was a tough task to get out the message, hey there’s a lot of good here in America and its people, so many good people. So many great things came from this brilliant country. That my parents came to from Ireland because of that brilliance, the opportunities, to be part of something great.

    It was hard, but I formally give up. I can’t defend this country on an international forum anymore. We are well and truly fucked, and if this is really what the people want… I have no words. I am ashamed of this country. Every bad thing they say about us, I can’t defend anymore. They’re right. As a nation, we are truly filled with awful and meanspirited people. We are a giant bag of dicks, and everything sucks, and I cannot believe the news.
