You're being a hell of a lot more optimistic than I am right now, Irvine.

he's not going to build a wall on the mexican border - literally impossible.

he's not going to deport all the "illegals" - literally impossible and unconstitutional.

he's not going to ban immigration based on certain religious groups - literally impossible and unconstitutional.

he's not going to rip up nafta - literally impossible.

he's got the codes to 5,000 nuclear warheads, though.

Don't think those two things are unconstitutional.

It's all I've got. I'd like to think maybe presidents don't have as much power as we think, and an energize D party can do some damage in 2018.

And, to be an asshole, my taxes seem likely to go down. I'll spend the new cash on working to destroy that man.

Thing is, a lot of us will be fine. We can hang on for 4 years. I'm sad for how POC must feel, and for the people that will lose their health care. I'm sad for the hate crimes that will increase. I can't even begin to calculate my foreign policy fears.

But, hey, Susan Sarandon got what she wanted.

Maybe they think her likely winning the popular vote will give her some standing?

My honest regret is Biden. He is the only Democrat capable of speaking to the rural PA vote.

There's talk of overseas votes and so on. Has this really happened or is there still chance, any chance, that trump doesn't win?

I've just woken up. What the fuck, you guys? This is terrible.

Reminds me of Brexit. The polls were very reassuring and then the results came in...

Well, I do appreciate the attempt at some optimism and hope. I definitely agree that this does make things look promising for the Democrats in 2018 and beyond, 'cause no way would we want a repeat of tonight, so I really hope that winds up being the case.

For the time being, though, I'm just...very worried about the next four years. So very worried. If I had more money and means on me, I seriously would consider trekking on up to Canada and staying there for a few years. I'm just so frustrated with people here in the U..S. right now. I get that many out there are frustrated, I get the complaints about third party representation, things of that sort...

...but good lord, people, this is not the way to respond to those problems.

And I have zero sympathy for the nationalists and "take our country back!" people who played a role in this outcome.

World: many of us are so, so sorry, and really not sure what kind of a country we live in anymore.

you think deporting particular ethnicities (you know he's not too concerned about illegal canadians) and requiring particular religious affiliations in order to legally immigrate are constitutional?

Officially official... pretty surreal. Hard to believe it happened, but here we are. Wow.

I hope we can come together and rebound from this, but there are tough times ahead.

To all the haters who have said we were crazy for the last 18 months for believing we would win.
Who's laughing now?
President Elect Donald Trump

They're still crazy now. Sorry. There is absolutely no excuse for this outcome. None. Republicans should NOT be proud about this.
