Ever since election day, many of us, including myself, have felt sick to our stomachs at the prospect of President Drumpf. But, as more and more information comes to light, it appears our feelings were justified all along: Russia rigged the U.S. election for Donald Drumpf.
The biggest regret I have from the last month is forgetting everything I learned from Hillary. How to get back up. How to face a bully. A riveting article in none other than Teen Vogue (http://www.teenvogue.com/story/donald-trump-is-gaslighting-america) was written today explaining the necessity for fact checking on our own. The Wire tried to warn us about 21st century-sensationalized journalism ten years ago. In the weeks leading up to the election, Russia propagated fake news articles viewed over 200 million times on Facebook specifically intended to harm Hillary Clinton, (Washington Post).
In case you haven’t forgot, it’s the GOP who pretends to be so anti-Communist, yet they chose not to release these findings about Russia to the public in September. The electoral college was specifically intended to safeguard against attacks like this in an election where four pivotal swing states produced the slimmest of margins, all victories for Drumpf.
Look, this isn’t just because I love Clinton. This isn’t due to envisioning with immense hope the first female president of all-time. No, this isn’t about how prepared she was with plans to better our country and world from day one. THIS IS ABOUT THE TRUTH. About a country who witnessed Watergate demanding answers before this madman is sworn into office.
We built up so much momentum over the last year and a half. It’s time to remember most people, over 2.7 million more than HIM, voted for HER. We know many of the precincts falsely reported inflated numbers for Drumpf. We know Russia actively encouraged his election. SO IMAGINE WHAT WE DON’T KNOW.
I look forward to seeing SNL destroy Donald again tonight, knowing, with President Barack Obama STILL in office, there’s plenty to believe and have faith in.
We were cheated, America. And Republican or Democrat, we can all agree that Russia is no good.
(And why did Russia hack the RNC, too, but not release anything through Wikileaks like they did to the Democrats? WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON HERE?)
