Donald Trump New USA President

The Simpsons predicted Trump’s victory 16 years ago. No one listened

TMR Editor – As we sought to figure out how to present the unexpected (not so by everyone), this which appeared strange, we thought in keeping with all that has happened and pick some of the things that made it that way.

It was not surprising as we realized from back when Trump had become the nominee, it seemed that the USA had gone under a spell. But as it unfolded, what the media and many others missed (or just refused to accept or acknowledge), even now, had overlooked particularly during the Obama era is just how much America was still very racist, perhaps even moreso now, in a way that it was rampant not just among white America, but among blacks and other ethnicities.

The immigration discussion gave them the platform. Just like it did for Brexit in the UK, where the observation was made. It was shocking to know that our own people supported and voted the Brexit.

Unusual and strange, many think it is, but clearly half of America, or nearly half, since the popular vote went against it, are that way.

 

Donald Trump will be the new president of the United States in a close-call victory that is dividing the nation. 

As the country – and the rest of the world – reels from the shocking results, not everybody is surprised.

In fact, we got fair warning in a Simpsons episode which aired in March 2000, 16 years ago.

The episode, titled ‘Bart to the Future’ features Bart, who travels to the not-so-distant future: his sister Lisa is the first female president of the US, and while in office says the following to her aides, who told her that America was bankrupt as a result of her predecessor, president Donald Trump:

We’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump.

Writer Dan Greaney told The Hollywood Reporter:

It was a warning to America.

That just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane.

We had fair warning, people. 

In the late hours of Tuesday night, news broke that Hillary Clinton had lost the presidential race.

Donald Trump will be the new president of the United States in a close-call victory that is dividing the nation.

Donald Trump will be the new president of the United States in a close-call victory that is dividing the nation.

The announcement of Donald Trump’s newly obtained presidency left many people speechless.

To say the news was polarising would be an understatement of monumental proportions. 

Clinton’s concession speech earlier in the day, in which she told the American people: “We owe [Trump] an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power.”

“But,” Maloney said, “never stop believing that the fight for what’s right is worth it.”

Donald Trump isn’t exactly known for his reticence. He’s a walking human megaphone.

So the three little words missing from his speech following his shock win of the US presidential elections. 

by Harriet Marsden in news

“Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division.

To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.

I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be a president to all Americans. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help, so we can work together and unify our great country.

Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you to Mike Pence. Thank you.”

Have you noticed, yet? There’s something very obvious that he didn’t say…(spoiler alert: it’s not Make America Great Again).

Something that every President has said in their victory speech since Ronald Reagan in 1984…

Something that might have united the watching American population…

Something that was really About The People, not about him…

God.

Bless.

America.

 

How to stop stressing about the news and get a good night’s sleep

Roisin O’Connor in news

‘Grab ’em by the pussy’ should have been the line that ended Donald Trump’s bid for US presidency.

But it didn’t: the Republican who said Mexicans were rapists; threatened to deport all undocumented immigrants but bring the “good” ones back legally; build a giant wall; was accused of sexually assaulting multiple women; boasted about how his star power meant he could sexually assault women and get away with it; said not paying taxes made him “smart”; appeared to encourage Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails, used money from his charity to pay his private legal fees; refused to reject political support from a former KKK leader; and mocked a disabled reporter at a campaign rally (Yes he did, Trump supporters, there’s a video and everything), is going to be the 45th president of the United States.

The impact that this election has had on mental health is considerable.

In September, before the infamous Access Hollywood video surfaced, a survey of 1,000 people on behalf of Citizen’s Against Trumpism found “surprisingly high” levels of emotional distress related to the campaign. 

Teachers in schools have reported bullies calling Muslim students terrorists, and telling Mexican ones that they were “outta here” once Trump became president.

Trump also produced more stress than Clinton did among women, POC, Hispanics and millenial adults, with most feeling anxious depressed or helpless.

Donald Trump isn't exactly known for his reticence. He's a walking human megaphone.

Michael Moore’s terrifying quote that predicted Donald Trump’s election

by Narjas Zatat in news

Following the news that Donald Trump has been elected as president of the United States, here’s a reminder that Michael Moore predicted this would happen…

Despite several polls putting Hillary Clinton as much as 14 points ahead of her Republican rival Donald Trump, some people still think he will win the presidency.

In a promotion event for his new one-man documentary, Michael Moore in Trumpland, the Fahrenheit 9/11 director outlined what he saw as the grim reality of Trump’s eventual victory.

The director recounted an incident where the Republican presidential nominee addressed the Detroit Economic Club. In no uncertain terms, Trump told the Ford Motor executives that if they relocate their car factories to Mexico, he was going to put a 35 per cent tariff on them, rendering them too expensive for US consumers.

Moore went on to say why ‘disenfranchised’ Americans would vote for him:

“He is saying the things to people who are hurting. It’s why every beaten down, forgotten, nameless stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump.

He is the human Molotov Cocktail they’ve been waiting for. The human hand grenade they can legally throw at the system which stole their lives from them. On November 8, the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain and take that lever and put a big fxxxing ‘X’ in the box by the name of the man who has threatened to up-end and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J Trump. 

Trump’s election is going to be the biggest ‘fxxx you’ ever recorded in human history. And it will feel good.”
