What a time to be alive.
Can I first say a big FUCK YOU to all of the polls who predicted a Hillary landslide. I said in my last post that they were stupid and I was proven right. Can anyone really take polls seriously anymore after this shocking result?
Secondly, this much like my reaction to Brexit is still taking time to sink in and this result in my opinion is much more shocking than Brexit. I personally thought with Brexit that it could go either way but I felt like Remain would ultimately win. I was proven wrong.
I thought Trump had an outside chance of winning but I had it at like 30%, I thought Hillary would hold on and win. I was dead wrong.
I was and still am a little hungover from last night so I was sleeping in bed and to be honest wanted to put off seeing who won the election. But then I got a message from my friend on what'sapp saying Trump had won. I thought he was trolling but then saw Milo Yiannopolous' page on facebook and couldn't believe it.
If there is one thing to take away from this on my initial reaction to Trump winning is that the meltdown's from all the liberals who supported Hillary on social media are fucking glorious. This was a big fuck you to the establishment and to all of the corruption, lies and deceit Hillary has projected throughout her entire career. This was a big fuck you to the mostly biased mainstream media who became a propaganda tool for Hillary and the Democrats who smeared Trump's campaign with all they could whilst blatantly ignoring all of the WikiLeaks that came out surrounding Hillary and the Democrats. Most of all this was a big fuck you and a potential wake up call to all of the hacks in Washington who have not only been complacent but have damn right worked against the interests of normal working American's and for the global elite, big money, big corporations and the big Central Banks.
Trump may not be the answer but he may be the catalyst for change. All of that is left to be seen.
The two big things however for me now is a sense of relief that we are less likely now to be going to war with Russia and that world foreign policy on the whole will hopefully go in a better direction and finally that it is going to be extremely entertaining as an outsider to watch all the shit unfold in the US with a Trump presidency.
All of this still feels utterly absurd and not real
