Not entirely fair, I know. You are not alone. But you are extremely big and horribly powerful.
When the howling, screeching cheers abate,
When the jingoistic slogans cease,
Will you build a wall around the USA
And leave the rest of us in peace?

Ha! This is good. 😀 xx
A bit of doggerel for these unfortunate times 🙂
Dreadful news, isn’t it? And I know most US citizens would tell us to keep our noses out and I wouldn’t blame them, but thanks to the power of the States and the UK’s ‘special relationship’ with them, this will impact us too.
Heads down for a bumpy ride
If only it was only their affair! The decisions he’s likely to make on ecological issues will affect the whole planet.
You’re right, Jane. Part of the reason the result is so upsetting – Trump the Global Warming denier could spell big trouble for the planet.
Sarkozy is also a denier, but France is piddling unimportant and he won’t win the election anyway.
Yes, it’s the weight of America in physical and influential terms that’s the worry
Hitler certainly had fewer willing helpers to work with.
It looks just as bad from the inside.
I’m sure it does. Ah well, it’s only four years.
That’s what my husband said this morning. But four years is a long time.
If he goes back on all the international agreements that have been made and applies his America First which comes down to Only America policy, the planet could well never recover.
Maybe we’ll get lucky and wake up to find this was all only a bad dream…
Maybe we’ll get lucky and Donald Trump will wake up and find he was just a bad dream…
God, I hope so… 😀
Hope is a word that seems to be cropping up an awful lot lately.
And for good reason. We have to have something to hold onto. Hope is power.
Maybe next time the Democrats will put up a candidate who appeals to the ordinary people. I know Lisa Simpson isn’t up for it, but there must be somebody as sane and down to earth as her willing to have a go.
Bernie Sanders had my vote…too bad he didn’t get the nomination.
I heard some commentator say that the Democrats lost the moment Clinton appointed Kaine as her running mate. I never understood why it wasn’t Saunders. It looked like a slap in the teeth for all the people who would have preferred him.
I don’t understand it, either. But there’s always 2020…I hope…
Probably. Unless Trump decides we don’t need it.
I shudder at the thought…
Yes, exactly, Ken. Obama and HRC made such gracious speeches today. Hers was truly inspiring, and I can’t help but think if the election had gone the other way, DT would never have behaved so well.
And now, DTs for 4 years
Yes, in this case withdrawal from sanity.
Class to trash.
There are many, many of us within the USA who are aware of just how much our elections impact the rest of the world. And that is why We Were With HER!
I know that, and that’s why we can all feel your shock and horror. We are experiencing the same phenomena. The gulf between rich and poor widening, the political class knowing nothing and caring nothing about anyone outside of it, treating politics like a lucrative meal ticket, and the discontented masses using their vote like a weapon. We’ll all get out Trumps, some countries have already got them, but none of them will be as cataclysmic as yours.
True. World altering.
