Donald Trump becomes POTUS, and on Twitter, Hollywood predicts an apocalypse

Donald Trump has become the 45th president of the United States of America, beating Hillary Clinton. Let that sink in.

 

His win comes as a shock to supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, who for months has been the frontrunner to win office. She counted among her supporters some of the most famous public figures in the world, from Beyonce and Jay-Z to Lena Dunham and Joss Whedon, all spreading the same message: #ImWithHer.

But as election night unfolded, and the results started coming in, Twitter turned into a war zone. Soon, it became clear that the landslide win they were anticipating would not happen. Instead, Trump claimed victory in one swing state after another, and at a little after 1 PM India time, Hillary called him to concede defeat.

Twitter meanwhile, prepared to batten down the hatches.

today I learned that activism & taking care of each other must be an everyday thing, not just an election thing

I promise to do better

Dear Muslim, Mexican, immigrant, refugee, handicapped, black, gay, female humans beings, & also dear Earth…you are not forgotten. Promise

Enjoy tonight, egg avatars. Savor it.

Good night, America. Bye, 21st century.

We stand together. We stick up for the vulnerable. We challenge bigots. We don’t let hate speech become normalised. We hold the line. https://twitter.com/malmal1012/status/796251369799696384 

This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.

Stop it w: the moving to Canada shit. Double down on the country we love. If Trump becomes president, we have to get MORE involved not less

Imagine trump not winning one state. Not one. Just roll that around in your brain for a sec. OK back to reality but wasn’t that dope?

If you need help explaining to your kids that your president is bad guy and that opposing him is patriotic, I have some experience…

Hold your loved ones close tonight. Let ’em feel it. Get some sleep. Back at it tomorrow. Love has a longer wick than hate & fear.
