A facebook memory from 3 years ago....

This showed up in my facebook memories today....I still get a warm fuzzy feeling when the news media realized that HRC was not going to win....it was comedy gold....


"I'm just laughing at all the news people....they are just getting sadder and more in shock as the night goes on....it's hilarious."

Another one- "128-97 red team...all these news people look like they've eaten a persimmon..."

1. I was working nights and I'll never forget that night for as long as I live

The utter shock on the talking heads was epic.

2. It was hilarious...

I watched CNN that night...I thought at one moment that one of the men on the panel was going to cry...


They kept saying "How could we have been so wrong??? All the polling suggested a landslide win."

They still don't get it, you know..

3. To be honest i was in utter shock myself, while i support him I didn't think he

was going to win so i missed the "sighs" and other little nuanced gripes etc.

5. I voted for him, but don't really like him. And I plan on voting for him again.


What I do like is that he is so unpredictable and will fight back against people. He gives as good as he gets and he acts just like the left does. W never did that and I wish that he had. I'm usually a turn the other cheek and take the high road person, but I think the time is past that for some situations.

and they are pulling the exact same polling crap now. They have learned: NOTHING.

6. They don't understand the electorate.

When you scream at people that they are racist, bigoted, stupid, etc.. do you think they are going to be honest with you? When there is a real chance that you could lose your job for stating that you support Trump or have your address blasted all over social media and your family harrassed?

People say the PC thing, but when they get in the voting booth, they vote the way they want. The news media doesn't learn lessons...

7. Even though I voted for Trump, I had already resigned my self to a HRC win.

Couldn't believe it was happening as the night rolled on.

Then, being Trump, I wondered what the heck he'd actually do once he got into office. I've been quite impressed by his efforts to mostly follow through on his campaign promises.

I will vote for him again but this time I wonder if he'll be as inclined to follow through since this time he won't be worried about re-election and might just do whatever he want since "offending the base" won't lose him any future votes. Not sure I trust him on things like 2A if/when he gets re-elected.

14. I think he will be fine

But I’ve thought that before and been proven wrong.

8. I was stunned, fully believed Hillary was to win.

The ensuing hilarity was on for the times.

9. I decided to completely avoid any coverage of the election.

I didn't feel like desperately holding onto hope for ten hours just to watch Hillary squeak by.

I randomly caught some encouraging snippet or another at about 8 in the evening, and from there I was dialed in until "complicated business".

I stood in line two weeks after a kidney transplant in pajama pants and a surgical mask to vote for Trump. I am so thankful that he is in office now, and I'll never forget that election night.

12. Keep that kidney healthy!

We have pts that have surpassed the 10-15 year mark.

15. I've got every intention of doing so.

I won't bother getting into nuts and bolts, but I had the tx at 31, it was a good kidney and my numbers have improved gradually but steadily since the outset. 4 1/2 years on dialysis before that, and I have no interest in making that a regular part of my life again!

Congrats though! I'm glad you are doing well.

10. Comedy Gold, Ma'am.

Like others here, I voted for him but didn't expect him to win. Cast my vote with great reluctance and no small degree of embarassment. Now, I'm glad I did and will willingly vote for him in 2020.

The Kavanaugh crap-show was a definitive moment for me.

11. The Kavanaugh debacle is what

Made me realize that I cannot vote for any democrat until they get the crazy in their party under control. I have a husband and a son and I would not like them to endure what he had to endure.


Heck, I was wild in my 20’s and I wouldn’t want a man to come forth and accuse me of stuff.
