In an outcome no poll predicted, Republican tyrant Donald Trump won the presidential election and will be the 45th President of the United States according to reports from NPR, Slate, and the Associated Press.
Hillary Clinton has called to concede to Donald Trump.
Trump’s racist, xenophobia seems to have sold itself to enough Americans to give him enough electoral college votes to secure the win.
I am at a loss. This is America’s Brexit.
The blame for his loss rests solely on the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton. Clinton, like Al Gore in 2000, ran an uninspiring, dry campaign. Her choice of Tim Kaine as a running mate was seen as a giant middle finger to the leftists who came to the party in support of Bernie Sanders and her continued center-right rhetoric never brought them back.
Clinton struggled to gain support from young voters but also left black voters feeling uninspired.
While her email scandal was bullshit, it was an avoidable and stupid mistake on her end. Of course, the FBI is to blame for their last minute surprise that was even more meaningless. Yet, the whole thing could have been avoided if she didn’t feel the need to act so secretly. Honest mistake or not, she lost the countries trust.
But here we are.
America chose a sexual predator, one who is facing charges of child rape, who has admitted to assaulting women, as its next president.
Anti-Muslim bigotry, anti-black lives, anti women’s rights are what American voted for.
I am disgusted. Hillary Clinton sucks, but the American people, those who don’t support third-parties, those who vote for one of two people in every election chose Trump. They chose all the insane, disgusting rhetoric.
The fact moderate Republicans voted Trump, instead of Clinton speaks volumes to what America is, and what moderate Republicans are. There is no moderate vote for what Trump believes in. There is not non-racist vote for Trump. It’s impossible.
Yes, a vote for Clinton was a vote for a war hawk, but so is a vote for Trump. Yet, a vote for Clinton isn’t a vote to ban and catalog Muslims.
America has shown it is not a country to be taken seriously. A country that elects a sexual predator, is a country that should be given the middle finger to. It is not a country worthy of respect.
Tonight, I weep for people of color. I weep for non-Christians. I weep for the LGBTQ community.
Fuck you, America.
