Trump triumphs -- Media's 'primal scream' is heard round the world

No, America, that wasn’t an earthquake. That was a media scream that registered 11 on the Richter scale as Republican Donald Trump defied media demands and went on to win the presidential election in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump to concede.

A nearly unanimous media failed to carry the unpopular Hillary across the finish line. Once again, America rejected the liberal Democrat. Advil set the tone early with a comment: “Politics giving you a #migraine? Advil® Migraine is the best candidate for pain relief.” CNN commentator David Axelrod called it a “primal scream.” ABC’s Terry Moran called it “a rejection of the neoliberal world order that has been the consensus around the world.” CNN commentator and former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones called the election a “White-lash against a changing country.”

When it appeared that Hillary would not concede, after campaign chairman John Podesta appeared before her supporters in Manhattan and told everyone to go home and get some rest, even some in media criticized her. USA Today Washington correspondent Paul Singer was typical: “Stunned that @HillaryClinton did not concede. If @realDonaldTrump pulled that, people would go bananas.”

Stayed up late flipping channels to watch the crying by the liberal MSM. Actually was watching MSNBC when the idiot Van Jones had the audacity to make his inane statement. Halfway through his statement I started getting nauseous and turned the channel. Will never ever tune into MSNBC again.

Wolf Blitzer would have much rather crapped himself right on live TV then admit Donald Trump had won. He even after being told 2x's that Clinton had called Trump to concede could barely spit it out. Before that it took his all to admit he had won FL and I don't think he ever admitted he took PA.
