The Donald would like to thank all the people who didn't vote for collectively making this win possible.

Especially the ones who also put the GOP on track for a Senate majority with a Pennsylvania win.

Now they have NO excuses left.

I am thrilled! I just got in from an election party despite having to work in the morning. What an historic election! What a turnout! It's truly amazing. This must be what it was like in 1980 when Reagan was elected President.

President Trump.... I love the sound of it!

We Trumpeteers weren't about to let those Brexiteers upstage us in shocking the world.

Congratulations. I feel like this kind of thing was inevitable. Rural whites were being left out of the decision making. My only concern is that this doesn't turn into a big roll back of civil rights instead of an adjustment in economic policy.

This will be interesting.

Which Trump will show up to be President? How many campaign promises will he keep? Will Washington cooperate with him or fight him? Lots of unknowns right now.

Strange days, indeed. Hillary about to give her concession speech.

I give him six days from inauguration to put his in his mouth.

Who am I kidding? He won't make it through his Inaugural Address.

Also I believe I called this election way back when.

If you don't see why this is practically a fait accompli then you have insulated yourself from mainstream America.

Me too, me too! Except I put it in terms of whose fault it was. (Everybody.)

So, it's 3foots fault. Be careful what you wish for because you reap what you sow.
To be fair, it's the Gary Johnson voters that handed this to Trump.
