Fellow DUers, Just checking in to see how you all are coping with this

new President. It will be a rough four years but I hope we can all get through it. Sick to my stomach that this buffoon got elected. What a disgrace to Americans and people who never saw this coming.

5. You have no idea how sick I am that an asshole got elected.

What the fuck is wrong with some Americans? I can understand the backlash, but I was hoping the demonstrations would be peaceful!

Dunno, but if God is understanding, this new president will be one term! The GOP seems to like him! Where is Kacsich and Rubio in this melee? Forget Cruz, he is hanging his mouth where the soup is leaking.

How on earth the people of America could elect such an asshole?

Was watching the elections that night and I could not believe that trump got elected through an archaic electoral system that the founding fathers put in place. God help us to make sure he is only one term!

7. You know what is fundamentally wrong is when a dictator comes into office and it

takes years to undo the atrocities that trump is going to do. He does not care about poor people. He is making sure the swamp is getting better. Have no idea why his supporters believed him. I do not wish him bad but if he does not build that wall, one of his gun toting supporters might have a word with him.

It is such a disgrace that two men who complimented each other are now succeeded by two men who are worst than bush and cheny!

4. I am incredibly thankful for DU

I live in the reddest part of a deeply red state. I appreciate every single DUer and have learned so much from y'all. It is so helpful to know there are sane, caring people out there. We will get through this and be stronger for it,

elected by the Supreme Court.

We will get through this four years of a buffoon in the white house. Hang in there and lets keep the dialogue going so that we can support each other during this four years.

9. Angry

I just had a talk with a friend by text who said that the democrats should just get over it. We have plans to see Sarah Silverman this Sunday but she doesn't know who she is. I told her that she was going to have to get used to the anger and jokes about trump or she isn't going to have fun Sunday night. She insisted that she still wants to go. I reminded her that I never stopped her from complaining about Obama.

11. Sick to my stomach!

How can you get over an election when the FBI was against Mrs. Clinton and the Soviets was hacking the DNC. I kept wondering why the hell the FBI was not asking questions about the hacking, instead Comey was undermining Mrs. Clinton.

I do not know about many Americans, but I stand with Senator Lewis in believing that Russia had a hand in trump being elected and he is not legally elected. Imagine a disgrace taking over grace and empathy for the American people. A cheat who will never release him income tax and a disgrace to small vendors who facilitated his towers and he cheated them.

I have no words to say how much I despise trump, a liar, a cheater and most of all an effing clown with yellow hair. Here is the irony, the American dream is that is wife who came to America is now in the white house, if that is not irony, I do not know what it.
fuck truck, he is an illegal president.

10. My bus from L.I. to D.C. for the march was just cancelled...

I was notified at 10:30 tonight. We were set to leave at 2:00 AM. I bought my ticket two weeks ago.

The small local company that was running the trip was notified today by the vendor supplying the buses that another group had offered more money.

Today was almost as bad as November 8. I was at the Javits Center for that heartbreak.

16. I am so sorry you you cannot get to Washington.

Be assured that your presence in NY will be equally important. I am so proud of all of you who make the effort to march and demonstrate against this man-baby!

I saw Cher, Alec Baldwin and other actors saying how they feel and it makes me feel good that President Obama's legacy will not fall by the wayside. I just hope that Democrats in the House and Senate give trump the same chance they gave President Obama.

Truth will prevail but it takes time and time we do not have because this yellow haired idiot is going to fuck up the greatest country on earth with the help of his buddy putin and pence.

12. Horrified.

I knew there were tens of millions of deplorable people in the US. That's been clear for a long, long time. But that they've been given credence and such power is absolutely horrifying. Bigots have been given a platform.

We're still feeling the damage wrought by Reagan and other past presidents. What Trump, Republicans in Congress and the Supreme Court could do over the next 4 years is devastating to even think about.

Billions will suffer, and that's not hyperbole.

14. I feel what you are saying but I never thought that the fleas

bugs and cockroaches would come out for trump, not to mention the kkk, but those are the people whom he spoke to and for once they had an advocate who santified their sentiments but never in a million years I believe that the election was fair. There were too many interferences and the FBI did not help Mrs. Clinton.

Gawd, I looked at Kornacki saying on TV that there is no way trump could win over Mrs. Clinton and that election night, I was devastated. I don't know how we can survive four years of trump and I will have to keep up through you all. Am done with CNN and MSNBC, those two news network is responsible for trump being the president. Not a good word about Mrs. Clinton unless it was something negative. That's my opinion. Hope they have good medicare!

19. Four years and it will be disgusting with CNN and MSNBC, those two channels

got trump elected and they should be ashamed of themselves. I kept asking myself why are you reporting this guy when he is mocking everyone from the poor to the disabled and they kept on. The media got that buffoon elected. And now they are crying foul because he is ignoring them, he played them like a fucking fiddle. Rest assured that if he gave an interview to Costa, the media will fold to sucking up to trump.

Never a kind word to Mrs. Clinton on CNN and MSNBC unless it was something to attack her for. Yes, am sick that she did not get elected, may not get over it, but lots of Americans will lose their health care with this buffoon being elected. Hope MSNBC and CNN feel comfortable about that.

I cannot believe that the GOP was so powerful that President Obama could not get a supreme court nominee elected during his term. How on earth the effing republicans are so powerful? It is mind boggling.

My second stepmother would taunt me about it. Maybe she knew it was my way of avoiding breaking something over her sadistic head.

24. I've been crying on and off for the past 36 hours, alternating between stubborn determination,

extreme grief, blazing rage, and utter despair. I hope the stubborn determination wins out. I am going to the local women's march in the morning, so maybe I will feel better after that.

29. I tried to ignore it.

Oh, I did stay away from broadcast media, but I admit I visited this and other sites.

I did not buy and wear an all-black suit like I had earlier intended. But I wore a somber black shirt, with thin white stripes and a black pull-over sweatshirt for most of the day.

I told myself that this is going to be a long four years with many heart-breaks to come. As one of DU's Believers, I made short prayers off and on through the day God will be merciful and that that the American electorate will rouse itself from its torpor with focused anger and that the better angels of our national character will again prevail.

Been to this rodeo a few too many times being from Wisconsin
If your state has always been red I think u are better prepared than when ur state transitions


The hard thing to accept is that u live in a country full of vile brain dead bigots...
I always kind of knew that. I grew up white on Milwaukee s north side...

32. I'm embarrassed and ashamed of this country for installing a no-nothing buffoon

in the most important job on the planet. I suspect he'll do so much damage so fast that Democrats will get the Congress in 2 years. That's what happens . . . assuming he hasn't been impeached and Pence installed. I think getting Pence in the White House is the real goal of Republicans. Trump isn't a sure thing to rubber stamp their legislation.
