As the weeks between Election Day and Inauguration day tick down, the hate-filled, distempered, downright mentally deranged reaction of liberals of all stripes to the coming Trump era is jarring to say the least. So much for the more caring, more adult, smarter, and more serious liberals we were told were going to rule the country in 2008 when Obama first won the White House.
The liberal cause has been in meltdown since election night, certainly. But it has continued for these many weeks after the morning of November 9 when we all finally discovered that Hillary lost the election. The left immediately made itself look like some of the biggest hypocrites in history — or should I say hysteria — by going from “accept the results of the election” to “we have a duty to reject the result of the election” in the space of about 10 hours.
This is when the liberal meltdown really began. In the early hours of November 9, hours after the polls closed, the media finally brought itself to declare Trump the winner of the Electoral College (the only vote that matters) despite their weeping and gnashing of teeth.
First we were treated to ABC’s Martha Raddatz as she almost began weeping openly over Hillary’s loss. Even Trump made fun of that one.
But that was just the beginning. The public display of mental illness was only just beginning. Next came the exclamations that Trump didn’t *really* win because Hillary won the popular vote and liberals began to openly discuss ways of toppling Trump from his proclaimed win of the presidency.
These calls for disregarding the results of the election started within hours of Trump’s win and made a complete reversal of the left’s haughty tsk tsking at Trump who in the last debate had refused to say he’d automatically accept the results of the election.
Hillary immediately made it a campaign issue and actually said Trump was “destroying our democracy” and the media took up her stump issue with gusto. The Washington Post, for instance, called Trump’s refusal a “horrifying repudiation of U.S. democracy.”
But all that immediately went out the window when Trump won the election.
By afternoon on the day after Election Day, liberals were already flooding the streets to protest the peaceful transfer of power and working to undermine President Donald Trump before he even took office… or even before he is officially designated by the final meeting of the Electoral College or Congress that he was the President.
One particular protest even featured those oh, so kind liberals calling for the deaths of Trump voters.
But the inciting to violence kicked off before the last votes were even reported with a hate-filled rant by socialist ad CNN commentator Van Jones.
We’ve talked about race — we’ve talked about everything but race tonight. … This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes. And Donald Trump has a responsibility tonight to come out and reassure people that he is going to be the president of all the people who he insulted and offended and brushed aside. Yeah, when you say you want to take your country back, you’ve got a lot of people who feel that we’re not represented well either, but we don’t want to feel that someone has been elected by throwing away some of us to appeal more deeply to others. So, we — this is a deeply painful moment tonight. I know it’s not just about race. There’s more going on than that, but race is here too.
If the media encourages you to feel the election is all about a racist America keeping you down, why would you accept the results?
You can almost always tell how disgusting liberals are when they don’t get their way they throw their little tantrums on the floor they riot,loot,burn and vandalize and frankly like little spoiled brats they need a good spanking and banished to the Safespace(Playpen,Bedroom)without supper and screw those stupid liberal pinhead pyscobabble idiots
snowflake mentality is a narcissistic disorder Axis I, with a trove of Axis II’s that can be added to better define their behavior. all are long time losers and society free loaders. really, when did a snowflake ever work much less served in the military. Trump should shut off all the free phones given by the fool. America must realize that the phones our tax dollars paid for are now used by pimps, drug dealers, hookers, snowflakes and a host of other useless human beings.
Obama was a popular novelty among liberals and this propelled him into office. Of course, liberals have no idea what success is or what competency looks like. They view celebrity as a capability, which explains why they fret over how many airhead liberal celebrities refuse, though never asked, to grace Trump with their sacred presence at this inauguration.
Hillary is no celebrity and oozes un-likability. She could be the most qualified person in history to be President (which, though Obama proclaimed it, is not true) but if she cannot present celebrity aura to her followers, she is not going to make it. And, she didn’t.
Liberals have no anchor in reality. They believed Hillary was going to win, since the media shielded her from negativity, helped in attacking her opponent, skewed poll results and all indications pointed towards President Hillary. I, unlike them, was fully prepared for defeat, since it was logically the predetermined outcome. We were all surprised, me pleasantly, they sadly. Had Trump lost, I would have been greatly depressed and pessimistic about the future of the nation, but I would not have been shocked to the point of supporting or committing violent acts against the government.
Since the left will not accept the facts of their defeat, they will be in desperate search for the next gimmick to run for office, because they do not respect anyone without celebrity and has only an agenda and policies to offer.
