First thing out there – I voted for Harambe. A candidate who I could really get behind. More than voting for Trump the Joker or Two-Face Hillary. But I followed what happened with a good deal of fascinating awe. Like most people, I thought that Hillary was absolutely going to mop the floor with Trump. But while I was watching the Drunken Peasants coverage of the election situation (indivijual), I was in awe of how that man was coming up and absolutely broke Hillary’s back. It was amazing. One of the biggest upsets in my life. Not to mention, the first election in my entire life that wasn’t over before the polls in my home state closed. That’s amazing. Donald Trump won it, fair and square.
But don’t tell the Hillary supporters that. Or the people in the media who basically polished her knob as hard as they possibly could. No joke, Rachel Maddow needs to go. Her reactions to what happened that night were some of the cringiest that I have ever seen. All her credibility as a “journalist” is gone. And that’s nothing to the reactions from Ana Kasparian. Her rage at the whole affair was both incredibly immature and stupid. Then we have a bunch of Hillary supporters going out and burning the American flag all because they didn’t get what they wanted. A landwhale decided to get on camera and scream that she is about to kill herself and she needs an immediate ambulance. Guess that didn’t stop her from uploading the video to YouTube. Maybe she killed herself right after that.
Then there is the new hashtag on Twitter #NotMyPresident. Because that’s democracy for ya. “Fuck this guy! I’m not even going to give him a chance because fuck him!” The maturity and the gross, immature hyperbole associated with these pathetic losers is beyond comprehension. I seriously haven’t felt more disappointed to call myself a liberal than I do right now watching all these people in New York burning the American flag and rioting because the person they wanted didn’t win. And these are supposed to be the people with higher educations?! Unbelievable.
Let me make one thing fucking clear right now – I don’t like Trump. But I am not one of these people who thinks that he is Hitler, Part Deux: The 99th Reich. I actually did some research and could tell that his political history has been just as centrist as Hillary and Bill Clinton’s. In fact, it’s well-known that he has been friends with them and held them in high regard up until he magically becomes a Republican and then runs for President. If only there was some evidence out there of him saying that if he ever ran for President, he would do it as a Republican because their base is dumb and easy to manipulate. That would be funny.
What do I think will happen over the next 4-8 years? Not much. We’ve seen that he has already pushed the GOP to the left on certain issues. Cut through the left’s hyperbole and he has done some real good in bringing the party to a more open position. And “Grabbing the Pussy” jokes aside, it’s kind of nice that someone who isn’t ashamed of sex is at the front of the party. If they were smart, they would rebrand themselves on this and could win real points. After all, the Republican politicians who didn’t kiss Trump’s ring are going to be kissing his ass so hard in the months to come. But all of that aside, we have the Democrats in Congress who have already said that they will be blocking Trump at every turn. Even though, you know, Hillary came out and in a pretty good speech said that we need to give Trump a chance. And then there was this statement from my man Bernie about Trump which also shows that he is willing to come to the table and work with the guy, to an extent –
Donald Trump tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media. People are tired of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids – all while the very rich become much richer.
To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him. To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.
So yeah, while we have all these flag-burning dumb-fucks who are using the #NotMyPresident tag to show their outrage, the actually mature people are willing to play politics with the guy. Funny how that works.
For my money, I figure that the next four years will actually be pretty uneventful. I was more worried about Hillary, to be honest. Her saber-rattling with Russia to cover her ass with WikiLeaks didn’t scare people NEARLY as much as it should have. That shit scared the ever-living fuck out of me. I was 100X more afraid of Hillary starting WWIII than I ever will be of Trump. If anything, the fact that Putin likes the guy makes me feel better. We have been fighting a proxy war with Russia in Syria. Maybe now we can walk away from that.
In the meantime, if you are one of these fucks who uses that tag or who is makes a video screaming about how Hillary not being elected means suicide, you need fucking help. That is so immature. Speak of, Ana, how old are you, again? I ask because your reaction last night was like a child who didn’t get their toy.
Until next time, a quote,
“Donald Trump is going to be our President. We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead.” – Hillary Clinton
