Just too lighten up the mood...

 

 

 

This would perfectly summarize a Hillary Clinton loss...

Opps! This has certainly wiped the smugness from you democrats. Can't wait to see that condescending face of Hilary's as she makes her concessional speech :) too funny. Maybe she should have done her homework better and not taken her constituents for granted, and rallied in florida like trump instead of eating at a 3 star michilan NY restrauny. Also i hope all those super delegates who cheated for hilary, are getting their fucking arses kicked and realize they were always flogging a dead horse, instead of Bernie the stallion, who would have had this wrapped up hours ago. Karma is a cunt, and Hilary got everything she deserved. Yaaaaaaaaas! Go Jill Stein. 

Shut the fuck up.

Get ready, world! 

Dollar, Mexican peso, stocks tumble as Trump takes election lead

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-global-markets-idUSKBN1340DE

The U.S. dollar sank and stocks plummeted as mayhem came to world markets on Wednesday as investors faced the possibility of a shock win by Republican Donald Trump that could upend the global political order.

Every new TV network projection in the U.S. presidential election showed the race to be far closer than anyone had thought, sending investors stampeding to safe-haven assets.

Sovereign bonds and gold shot higher while the Mexican peso went into near free-fall as AP gave Florida to Trump.

As of 0335 GMT, Trump was leading Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by 36 Electoral College votes, with a tally of 167-131.

It takes 270 to win.

U.S. stock futures recoiled more than 4 percent, a loss reminiscent of the carnage that followed the British vote to leave the European Union in June.

Markets fear a Trump victory could cause global economic and trade turmoil, discouraging the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates in December as long expected.

Fed fund futures were even starting to toy with the idea of a cut in rates next year <0#FF:> and it was possible the Bank of Japan and European Central Bank might be forced to ease policy further.

South Korean authorities were thought to have intervened to steady their currency, and dealers were wondering if central banks globally would step in to calm nerves.

The scale of the scare was clear in the Mexican peso, which plunged more than 10 percent against the dollar in the biggest daily move in two decades.

"There's a lot of panic in the market, it is definitely an outcome it was not expecting," said Juan Carlos Alderete, a strategist at Banorte-IXE.

The peso has become a touchstone for sentiment on the election as Trump's trade policies are seen as damaging to its export-heavy economy.

But the story was very different against the safe-haven yen, with the dollar shedding 3 percent to 102.02 yen. The euro gained 1.5 percent to $1.1190.

Asian stocks also skidded, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks outside Japan down more than 3 percent, and the Nikkei sinking nearly 5 percent.

I mean, whatever happens her performance is actually really tragic and America wholly rejects the "more/true progressive" platform in favor of WHITE POWER and REAL CONSERVATISM. Poor Jill.

He will control the senate and the house. He will do anything he wants. This is very very scary.

Now this is getting even crazier. On the BBC they have projection that could give her 271. BUT there are two known "faithless voters". And in result she is not going to make it.

She's catching up on Michigan. I'm still not convinced he's got that one already.
