The most burning social media reactions to the Trump election victory are savage

This is Fine meme from Gunshow comic


Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States of America.

President Donald Trump

The next Leader of the Free World

During his entire campaign this election season, Mr Trump unraveled and gave voters plenty of advance notice of the inner landscape of his grotesque orange appearance serial rapist manchild. Trump broadcasts the hallmarks of deep insecurities and psychiatric pathologies, which would weed him out of important, non-elected positions in government. Yet, he won the 2016 US presidential race on the collegial vote.

Not only that, Trump built his success on an openly extreme-right platform of unmoderated bigotry and sexism, while boasting about his exploitative business career. The next US president is a racist demagogue, who knows how to blow all the dogwhistles, to reach into the racial paranoia of rural America, a slipping middle class and petty, suburban bourgeoisie. He aims to isolate the United States, roll back the clock on civil rights, women’s reproductive rights, minority issues and political attempts to address climate change.

Needless to say, the at best mediocre Obama presidency is likely to look stunningly gorgeous compared to what’s in store for the US or the rest of the world. It’s alright to be angry at both Trump himself and the drooling senility of the Democratic National Congress that failed to read the wider anti-elite sentiment of a Western populist movement.

So, we’ve collected some of the best commentary to be found on social media before, during the day after the election. Please share any other great stuff you’ve found in the comments below.

1928 was last time Republicans had the White House, the House and the Senate. And the Great Depression followed LITERALLY a year later....


There we go, some brilliant weltschmertz. Now, go out and do something about this. Politics based on post-facts, racist demagoguery is a global issue.

  1. Well on the bright side it won’t be to long before the American people discover that they have a Dick-head running their country???……..then try to find anyone who will admit having voted for him!?…… “Rigged system we all voted for that woman!”

  2. Boycott his businesses. Destroy him financially. Ensure the Trump brand is so toxic (he’s done most of the work already) that no one touches it again. It’ll be a fun four years destroying that man’s legacy and ensuring that his Presidency becomes the worst decision he’s ever made.

  3. I have UK/US passports. I am more devastated than with Brexit…Western Society has collapsed. Fred Dibnah was right, its like the end of the Roman Empire..”the people just wanted bread and circuses ” (and x boxes) He, (not Fred Dibnah) is a true fascist but far crazier than Musso or Hitler….. What does the US Military do if he orders a tactical nuke on Mosul..a city of 2 million …to save money and time.. There ARE NO checks and balances, he has supreme independent power to do that.

  4. Discovers what the whole world knows! They’ve REALLY downgraded themselves electing him. It’s brought America’s judgment into permanent distrust.

  5. That first panel of the “this is fine” comic always makes me giggle. So superbly retarded looking. Really good use of asymmetry in the face of that character.
