The people chose Hillary Clinton. But it’s the electoral vote that counts, not the popular vote, so Donald Trump will be president. And no, I’m not over it.When I watch the news I keep seeing crazy people smashing store windows, and cars because they didn't get the president they wanted.
When is your country going to get over this bs?
It's not Trump causing this racist violence, it's the corporate media stirring it up.
It'll continues to happen as long as people allow themselves to be manipulated.
I don't care about Clinton losing, she's evil, and responsible for many, many thousands of Libyan and Syrian people dying.
The warpig should be in prison.
Muslim rel is not in the white house this term most celebrated the election at the timeEveryday since the election, my social media pages have been full of videos of ignorant Whites flexing what they view as their "newfound mandate" by, for lack of a better term, fuckin' wit' folks. However, for every one of those videos, I see another one of Black people applying the Whup-Ass dance to some racist asshole.
If the racists out there think they can indiscriminately walk up on Black people and disrespect us, please be informed that there are very few of us left willing to "turn the other cheek", particularly among the younger generation. The 60's were almost 60 years ago. Nowadays, the "N word" will probably get you "dealt with" in no uncertain terms.
My advice is don't let your president get your ass kicked out there....or worse.

No one should be over it. No one should pretend that Trump will be a normal president. No one should forget the bigotry and racism of his campaign, the naked appeals to white grievance, the stigmatizing of Mexicans and Muslims. No one should forget the jaw-dropping ignorance he showed about government policy both foreign and domestic. No one should forget the vile misogyny. No one should forget the mendacity, the vulgarity, the ugliness, the insanity. None of this should ever be normalized in our politics.
The big protests that have followed Trump’s election should be no surprise. You can’t spend all those months trashing our nation’s values and then expect everyone to join you in a group hug. Trump made the bed in which he now must lie.
If a normal Republican had been elected, I could say the polite and socially acceptable thing, something like “I didn’t support So-and-So, but he will be my president, too, and I wish him success.” But I cannot wish Trump success in rounding up and deporting millions of people or banning Muslims from entering the country or reinstituting torture as an instrument of U.S. policy. In these and other divisive, cruel, unwise initiatives, I wish him failure.
I do hope he succeeds in avoiding some kind of amateurish foreign policy blunder that puts American lives or vital national interests at risk. And let me be clear that I am not questioning his legitimacy as president. When the results are certified and the electoral college casts its votes, Trump will be the nation’s duly chosen leader, ridiculous though that may be.
But he has not earned our trust or hope. Rather, he has earned the demonstrations that have erupted in cities across the country. He has earned relentless scrutiny by journalists, whom he shamelessly made into scapegoats during the campaign, and he has earned the constant vigilance of the public he now must serve.
We must watch Trump, and judge him, every single inch of the way.
I have to give credit where it's due.....this is from Eugene Robinson.
For my own part, let's clarify something once and for all. Ready?? Here goes:So Trump is the racist, misogynist, and homophobic?
For wanting to stop anyone crossing the border from Mexico?
For wanting to deport illegals with criminal records?
Lots of women voted for him.
And he's the only candidate that came out as pro gay marriage.
So he's against abortion.
He's for vetting muslims arriving from countries that have radical islam preached by their mullahs.
Meanwhile Hillary was given millions for her election campaign by Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, the same people funding ISIS, why not she's the godmother of ISIS, arming them and sending them to Syria to overthrow the Syrian government, and killing 400,000 Syrian people in the process,. But you don't give a fuck about anything the criminal warpig does in Syria do you?
You don't care she destroyed Libya either.
WTF is wrong with you, that you want someone like that as president of your country?
Trump isn't a mass murderer, and the rubbish spread by the MSM is what has people out protesting, and the fact they're getting paid, and can loot and steal while they smash hard working peoples cars and businesses.
Time you grew up, if you want to live in a republic that gives you a good standard of living, man up and accept the president that won the election.
