Following Election Day, millions awoke to find Trump confirmed as President Elect. Trump made his speech early Wednesday morning, shortly after Hillary called to stand down, in wake of the final results.
2016 will go down in history, no doubt. Books will be written without question. Voter turnout made clear that 46.6% of Americans didn’t vote. Not only is that a record, but the dead gorilla Harmabe received more than 10,000 votes. Both candidates were heavily disliked by the people, and it shows. Corruption sums up Hillary for many, whereas arrogant, inexperienced, naïve, and racist were many of the people’s complaints of Trump.
Left wing media prioritized news feed from the beginning; it was always Hillary that would win. It’s what people expected, she was supposed to win. If anything, this proves that the system isn’t as rigged as Trump said continuously. Regardless, more people than not were surprised at the final results. The results were a completely different outcome than what the news predicted it to be.
This whole election should be a wakeup call to not only America, but to the world. What started as a joke to many is now a reality. We have here a business man, who knows little to nothing of politics, trumping over even the most experienced. Too often, people were quick to shut Trump down. Many news anchors even said he wouldn’t be president, yet the people spoke, the results are final.
After giving thought into this election, I came to realize that the American people don’t like being told who to vote for. It was highly assumed that Hillary would win, and that the people “need” to vote Hillary if they weren’t “racist.” With that type of manipulation, many felt pressured into voting for Hillary, which in a sense, is being told who to vote for. By using emotions to terrorize those who didn’t quite make their mind, it was evident that too many people felt they were told there was only one right choice: Hillary. Media bias was a huge factor. For months, if not longer, the media reported Hillary as winning hands down. Trump on the other hand, was made a laughing stock in the media world.
If more people voted, Hillary may have been president. It’s amazing this election, over two years of hearing about this, and now it’s finalized. Trump will be our Commander In Chief this January, best adapt, because that’s the harsh reality.
