I'm shocked and disappointed that there are still so many racist, sexist and homophobic bigots in the world.
You deserve better America.

I just...I'm STUNNED. And so angry. ALL of the polls were projecting Hillary and then THIS. I can't stop crying. I don't understand how people can be so stupid and hateful and STUPID. It's like waking up in 1856 or something, we've taken sooooooooo many steps backwards. And I'm SURROUNDED by the type of people who voted for Orange Hitler, all these "JESUS LOVES YOU PEOPLE" who 'claimed' they couldn't vote Trump because he was not a Christian...yet they couldn't vote Hillary because she's pro-choice and supports LGBTQ rights and gun control...so guns, ammo & hate outweighed their ~Jesus loves you~ CRAP. (And then there are just the straight-up bigots, KKK members, misogynists and Neo-Nazis.) So I'm in this whatever-stage-of-grieving where I'm blaming the Bible-thumpers first and foremost because they are SUCH HYPOCRITES. Maybe it's time for that asteroid to hit because humanity needs a hard reset. (And I saw all these posts on tumblr hoping for an inauguration day assassination and it's just that the VP Pence was governor of Indiana and he went behind the state legislature's back to pass a law where businesses can deny service to gay couples so he's just as bad.) I just...QUIT. I'm done. How do I go about renouncing my citizenship???

Awww Amy!💔❤️💔❤️ I'm heartbroken for you.

I'm actually still in shock tbh. I had work at 6am this morning and I was checking the Election results before I left and was absolutely stunned that Trump was actually leading and was predicted to win. How could this even happen????
Saying that I came home and my mum and brother were saying that they would have probably voted for him over Hillary Clinton because "they didn't trust her" which made me even more furious. Like seriously he's a bloody stupid and ignorant bigot, a liar and a sex pest - how is he in the slightest way trustworthy?!
I'm just constantly disappointed in people at the moment, there's just so much hate and intolerance and downright stupidity in the world right now. I mean this moron was being endorsed by the bloody KKK for Christ's sake! I'm floored.
I have no time for narrow minded Bible-thumpers. If you have to judge and hate on other people in order to feel better about yourself in the name of religion you deserve nothing but the very worst that life has to offer as far as I'm concerned.

I feel genuinely gutted for you right now and I definitely wouldn't be opposed to an asteroid hitting or even a zombie apocalypse to weed out some of the hateful morons.

Some of the political sites yesterday were even predicting a landslide for Hillary (others were more cautious but they ALL had her winning) and I kept a browser up and every time I woke up, I checked it. There were people online yesterday warning not to relax because the polls for Brexit looked like it wouldn't happen and yet it did and I was like "pffft that won't happen again". I was so so wrong.

This moron has NO political experience, he doesn't even know how government works (like he says he's going to build his damn wall and bomb the shit out of places and all this other stuff, like there's not Congress & the Supreme Court there for checks & balances…though they're all going to be horrible Republicans like him too now so). He's gone bankrupt numerous times. He goes to court in December for raping a 13-year-old girl. He ran a fake college to rip people off. He's molested/harassed who knows how many women. He's made fun of the physically handicapped, veterans, parents of soldiers killed in battle, women, gays, Muslims, Jews, basically everyone who is not a white (or orange) rich white old man. THIS DUMBASS COUNTRY LITERALLY ELECTED A REALITY STAR PRESIDENT. Someone from The Jersey Shore would probably do a better job than him.

Yes he had the endorsement of the KKK and Neo-Nazis showed up at many of his rallies to express their support. THERE ARE PHOTOS OF HIM EASILY FOUND ON THE INTERNET POSING WITH HIS PARENTS WHILE THEY'RE IN THEIR KKK GARB. HIS PARENTS WERE CARD-CARRYING KKK MEMBERS. HIS FATHER IS EVEN SUSPECTED OF KILLING A MAN IN A LYNCHING.

I deleted my Facebook this morning because my extended 'family' and real life 'friends' were all for Orange Hitler. And in between their racist memes and pictures comparing Hillary to piles of dog poop, they interspersed crap like "just remember that if your candidate didn't win, Jesus still loves you and you are resting peacefully in his arms because God is still Lord". Oh shut you hypocritical fundie idiots. You morons gave Jesus the wheel and he drove us over the goddamn cliff.

Oh Amy, I've cried three times today. It's a shock to realize that the country I've viewed as my 2nd home is not what I've learned to see it as. I'm scared for America, I'm scared for Finland (Trump won't give a shit if his new BFF Putin decides to invade us) and I'm scared for the entire world.

I just feel like I've been punched in the soul. This hurts worse than I ever could have imagined. I knew the state I live in would go Republican because it's full of Bible-thumping guns/God/ammo bigots but I thought the rest of the country would have some SANITY. I'm just sitting here in my cubicle bawling. I don't know what to do after this.

Thanks, hon. I needed that. *hugs tightly*

I am really so disgusted and shocked. I wasn't a fan of either option and I usually don't care who wins these things, but this year, like everyone else, I was intensely stirred by this election and anxious of its outcome. I have never liked Trump, and the way he behaved in this election was nothing short of horrifying. I can't understand how he's just been rewarded with the highest office in the nation. He disgusts me, and I dread having to hear his grating voice and see his scrunched-up, ugly orange face for the next four years. *shudders*

It also doesn't help that I am surrounded by Trump's most diehard groupies at work. (Phyllis and Edie both gush about him constantly -- it makes me rage. Edie's 10-year-old grandson even got a Trump T-shirt to wear in his school pictures and was reportedly going to be wearing it today in celebration.) There are Trump signs and even a flag -- yes, a flag with Trump's name on it in giant letters! -- all over the place on my drive to work. This is do-or-die Republican territory, but even taking that into consideration, I have never seen so many people with campaign signs in their yards as I did for this election. Deep down in my gut, I had a bad feeling that the end was nigh, and I'm sad that sense of foreboding turned out to be right. I have no idea what makes all these people adore this asshole so much -- I find him absolutely repugnant. His followers are like a cult or something. It's scary.

I'm trying to reassure myself that we'll survive this. At least the stock market didn't crash today, which was something that I truly feared would happen. I'm hoping Trump doesn't turn out to be the utter disaster that I imagine he will be (there are checks and balances and hopefully they'll keep him in check if he tries to pull any dangerous crap -- the fact that some of the people in his own party can't even stand him gives me some hope that they'll call him on any bullshit), but the fact that his win has validated so many terrifying groups like the KKK and such horrible world leaders as Kim Jong Un and Putin is just dreadful ...
