Immediately following Donald Trump’s massive upset over Hillary Clinton at the polls Tuesday, a bunch of special snowflakes who didn’t get their way took to the streets to protest the new president-elect, proceeding to flip cars, burn stuff and cause general manic and mayhem.
Because in America, this is apparently how we solve our problems now. Didn't get what you wanted? Burn a car.
But while fires rage in the streets, cops get attacked and both public and private property gets defaced nationwide, the country has been met with noticeable radio silence from folks like President Barack Obama and former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who’ve yet to call for an end to the oft-violent protests that have left some cities in shambles.
While Obama met with president-elect Trump yesterday at the White House and touted a peaceful transition of power come January, the current occupant of the Oval Office has yet to issue any kind of statement condemning the protests, attacks and open calls for Trump’s death.
I mean, literal calls for his death.
Now, it’s not like a plea for peace from any public figure will suddenly placate all the whining crybabies who apparently possess no capacity for handling defeat like adults. Decades of coddling and participation trophies are hard to unravel overnight.
But still, a little effort might be nice, especially from the guy who constantly lectures us on being nice to illegal aliens and potential terrorists.
