The Way Hillary Clinton And President Obama Handled The Election Results Will Overwhelm You With Emotion

“This loss hurts, but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.”

Hillary Clinton addresses a somber yet enthusiastic crowd Wednesday morning at the New Yorker Hotel in New York City. While many in the country are still trying to understand the stunning victory by president-elect Donald Trump, Clinton delivered an energizing and inspiring speech to her supporters. Clinton thanked all the Americans that helped to progress her campaign and agenda calling it a “vast, diverse, creative, unruly, energized campaign” and that her supporters represent “the best of America.”

“For people of all races, and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for LGBT people, and people with disabilities,” Clinton said in her concession speech. “For everyone. I am so grateful to stand with all of you.”

Obama has also addressed the nation following the results of last night’s election.

During his speech, Obama addressed the concerns of millions of Americans about the transfer of power from an Obama administration to a Trump administration. He spoke about his own ascension to the Oval Office and how the Bush administration had graciously made the transition smooth and efficient. Obama promised the American people that after his conversation with president-elect Trump that his administration would do the same thing. He reminded everyone that we are all on the same team and that the election was just an intramural scrimmage.

#NotMyPresident Is Already Showing How Americans Feel About A Trump Presidency

@DenzAnonymous / Twitter

It hasn’t even been 24 hours since Donald Trump was announced as the president-elect and people on Twitter are not having it. It isn’t because they just don’t want a Trump presidency. It’s because of the examples of hate crimes and rights-stripping that have already started to happen.

People are using #NotMyPresident to show the world just what a Donald Trump presidency will look like.


People are tweeting about emboldened racist actions and remarks being taken against people of color.

But the hashtag is also showing the world that some places in America are still loving and compassionate to all Americans.

Americans are coming together over the hashtag to offer love during a questioning time.

People. Are. Ashamed.

Some people are taking the election results as a sign of growing misogyny in the U.S.

The youth of America has spoken.

They are mobilizing people to protest the results of the election.


Major cities across the country — from Los Angeles to New York — are already experiencing protests.

People from other countries are showing support for Americans who feel victimized by the results.

If you ever wanted to know the emotional spectrum of an election, this hashtag is the perfect lens.


Take a deep breath, America. This is a country of the people by the people. We just need to make sure we make our voices heard in a calm and orderly way.
