Unhappy voters who criticized Donald Trump for stating he would contest the vote if their was voter fraud, have done exactly the same thing. They have descended upon Times Square, Columbus Circle and Union Square. New York, which voted overwhelmingly in favor of Hillary Clinton, did not know how to accept the fact that another candidate, not theirs won. Their candidate did not help matters in her acceptance speech. Instead of understanding that unity needs to happen, she urged her followers to fight on.
Using their celebrity Cher and Madonna helped lead the way, chanting “Black Lives Matter” and “Donald Trump, go away, racist, sexist, anti-gay.” Do they not realize that Ms. Clinton is on record being anti-gay in 2004, 205, 206, 207 2008 up until 2013? According to e-mails that were hidden and then released, the 2013 change of heart may not have been true.
Trump is not anti-gay. Remember the campaigns had a lot of media smear tactics and not everything was as it seemed.
Thousands marched uptown to picket outside Trump Towers, where the President-elect resides including Lady Gaga. If Love Trumps Hate, what is this? “Not my president” and “F— Trump.” Thousands of protesters could be heard chanting and banging drums as they marched past Rockefeller Center up Sixth Avenue, barely even acknowledging the rain.
Protests are also happening in Chicago, downtown Portland, Oregon, outside the White House and at least seven cities.
Whether you like this or not we are a country that has a democracy. In the popular vote the difference was only 202,340 with Trump taking a 51 lead over Clinton in the electoral votes. Though I have never understood why a fake college elects our president, until that is over turned these are what we as citizens have chosen to accept.
Trump took states that primarily voted Democrat, which means the country is dissatisfied with the current state of affairs. Trump took states that were proven to be conducting voter fraud with all votes going to Hillary. Prime example Pennsylvania. Trump won this race fairly and square and if you voted then we should accept the results. In New York 37% of the population did want him. Do those votes not count? Does it only count when you get your way?
Half this country is in mourning. Half this country is afraid because of the media slurs and manipulation. There are issues at play that some do not comprehend, but step outside of fear.
Here is the positive: Putin is willing to discuss with Trump and Putin has the ESP Bomb, we do not. If Hillary had been elected and had put into effect a no fly zone in Syria, Putin would have reacted and not in a good way. We need to be able to communicate with Putin. The stock market is not crashing, but doing just fine if not better than fine. Our ties to Israel have tightened.
We have a chance to start again. We have a chance to unite in a positive way. We must put our differences aside if we are to be strong nation and not be perceived as weak by the world. We are being watched, we are being judged and we need to united.
