But yeah, remember, people, just 'cause somebody voted for a racist xenophobe TOTALLY doesn't mean they actually endorsed that racism and xenophobia. Nope. Purely an unfortunate coincidence .

(Seriously, I like how Hillary's accused of "enabling" all the nasty things Bill was accused of, but people who voted for Trump somehow shouldn't be accused of enabling HIS horrific beliefs? We should be "careful" about calling them racists or xenophobes or sexists, or at the very least, supporting someone who holds those kinds of views?)

That would be about the only blessing I could ask and hope for in this entire hellish mess.

Also, if Sarah Palin honestly is hired to be part of Trump's cabinet, I swear to God I will kick something. Fucking hell.

Is there ANY possible hope and chance that we'll hear in the next two months that there was some sort of vast rigging pr hacking or something of this election, to the point where we'd have to have a complete do-over vote? Anything? At all? Please?

I'm really sorry, Ashley. It's a sad reality now. As it turns out, a racist campaign leads to racial abuse. What a concept. I hope this is dealt with within the school.

We should brace ourselves to an increase of hate crimes. Post-Brexit England saw this phenomenon. If you can, volunteer your time or money to a civil rights organization. They will need it now.

I'm three years (damn timing) from running for my local board.

Yes, good memory. He asked to sit there to avoid being with Clinton.

I currently volunteer with inner city foster youth. I'll be doubling down my efforts there in any way I can.

I just told my mom I'm not coming home for Thanksgiving because I can't handle being around my family right now. I'm so fucking upset, again, I'm sorry to keep bugging you all with this, I just have no where else as an outlet. My mom, us furious with me. I'm crying at work, and I'm trying really hard to keep it together.

Sorry for all that's been going on in your family, Ashley. I really hope the tension will simmer down in the next few months, but I doubt it.

Apart from myself, I can't even get my dad to vote for me since he isn't in Kaipaitiki.

There's always faithless electors.

All we need is 20 of them.

Sorry for getting so emotional guys. Got caught up in the middle of a lot of things. Let's go back to making fun of Palin.

It's okay. Lots of emotions running high right now.

Didn't Palin have a reality TV show for a time? If Trump does pick her, then we'll have two reality show stars in our federal government.

We're really through the looking glass here, aren't we?

this bed. you made it.

Quote:
The white working class turned out, and they struck back.

The morning after, that already appears to be the dominant media narrative coming out of the 2016 presidential election. Sure, the black and Latino voters that Hillary Clinton was counting on to deliver her to victory were there — but white turnout was up, and especially among white people without college degrees, there was a major swing to Trump.

There’s already furious debate about why this is, and how it jibes with data suggesting that Trump supporters are richer, not poorer, than average. But let’s not lose sight of something very important: Donald Trump’s presidency is going to be an absolute disaster for the white working class, the white poor, and every other economically struggling person in America. The people the media is crediting with Trump’s win have a tremendous amount to lose.

Lower-income whites are not going to suffer from Trump’s restrictions on Muslims traveling, or from his mass deportations, or from his cavalier attitude toward police brutality. But Trump has promised an economic agenda that will increase the ranks of the uninsured by tens of millions, that will eliminate crucial safety net programs for low- and moderate-income Americans, that could start a trade war that drives up prices and devastates the economy, and that will put in place a tax code that exacerbates inequality and leaves many families with children worse off.

That affects all Americans — and with Republicans retaining control over the House and Senate, it stands a very good chance of passing.


Donald Trump’s presidency is going to be a disaster for the white working class - Vox

One of the worst things for non-Americans is that this has emboldened Trumpeters who are hungry for media attention to crawl out of their holes and swamps everywhere in hopes of duplicating the same result. The Canadian leadership race already has at least 1 who has decided to go down the lunatic path, and she's a woman too.

No need to apologize, you and anyone else should feel free to vent away.

Oh, and...
