    Clinton won the popular vote…not that that means anything in a practical sense…but to people who are in other countries who are going WTF, it might be good information….

      Your Welcome, but with our Brexit vote, and subsequent behavior, is Britain much better?

    It’s very distressing over here across the pond. For many of us who voted against hate and misogyny and fear, we are left bewildered. We are trying to pick up our bootstraps and rally to continue to fight. Please know, not all Americans voted for him and believe the hate that was thrown about over the last 18 months. There are millions of us that voted for inclusion. It just didn’t happen for us this time. We will have to pivot and work together to make the next 4 years work for all.

      Clinton got 150,000’ish more votes right? So per head theres less Arseholes in America than Arseholes in America. On the upside, America has 4 years only. Where as Brexit is most likely permanent…

        I am hopeful there is no permanent damage from this, but he and his administration have work to do to prove he wants to bridge the gap as he says. It’s not good enough to just say it, I want to see it through inclusive actions and policies.

      I agree, not all Americans voted for him. I didn’t! I would never vote for racism, misogyny, deporting immigrants like he is talking about, hatred and ugliness. Now in the aftermath of his election kids in elementary school are coming home with stories of being told (by other students) to “pack their bags because Trump is kicking their *ss out of the country. And in colleges kids are being told they are going to be lynched….it’s quite a hell-hole that Trump has created here with his anger!!

        Yes, the rhetoric has opened the door for others, regardless of what President Elect Trump truly believes. At this point, we have to come together, and hear the stories of the disenfranchised so that we can build a better tomorrow. It’s hard. I don’t resonate with many of the ideals espoused by Trump and those around him. And Democrats have ownership here, too. I am coming to grips with the idea that perhaps we’ve been in a bubble thinking things were truly better, but are they? Clearly there is something going on, and we have a responsibility to find common ground, and get back to the true ideals of the Democratic Party. I am working to figure out what they really means for me, but I’m trying. I vacillate between hope and loss at least 10 times a day. I’m not sure how to move forward, but I know we need to. Any ideas?

          Know that everything changes, and for now, we still have free speech and freedom of expression in the UK and USA. Trump and Brexit have been wake up calls. The Democrats in America and Labour in the UK know they must now unite and work harder. In the end, that might lead to much better things?

        Urgh, much like UK when Brexit happened. Racism went through the roof in some areas when the extremist right suddenly felt over-empowered.

    I wish my wife could split the last piece of cake as evenly as those two split a country.

    If “reactionism” isn’t in the dictionary now it will be soon.

    I keep hoping that I’ll wake up tomorrow and it will actually be today… this will have all just been a bad dream.

    I was in an event last week where Farange was the speaker… The problem with his type of speech is that it makes sense for those who feel already excluded… In their minds they are including… Truth be said, the existing established world politics have failed badly… They promiss and do not deliver… People got tired and want to demonstrate it but the choices were awful!
    Love your post I would like to reblog!

      Yes America had an awful choice this time. Neither Clinton or Trump seemed like a great choice. Still stunned he won though.

          Its a bit hard to take Trump right after Brexit. People are sick of politicians the world over at the moment.

      Hmm. Not really. Imagine the frustration you feel against Europe? It the same just the other way round.
