It’s day three of Trump’s America, and you’ve undoubtedly seen the endless compilations of Hillary supporters crying on election night already.
They weren’t the only ones who shed a tear. When Hillary Clinton didn’t show up to address supporters at her campaign HQ in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, it wasn’t the first time she was absent at 3am, but this time it was real emotion behind her absence. The freshly-defeated presidential hopeful remained locked in her hotel room devastated, and reportedly was crying uncontrollably.
No one in the media saw this coming. For the past year, we’ve been force-fed the narrative of an inevitable Hillary presidency, and she was one of those who bought it.
What caused this, when every poll showed Hillary ahead? Could it have been due to “hidden” Trump supporters who wouldn’t publicly identify themselves as such? Could it have been the enthusiasm gap between those supporting the two candidates? Did enough people get fed up and decide to spite the establishment? It’s a question that will likely be debated for years to come, and there are plenty more causes to examine, such as the effect of Wikileaks, as well as the renewed (then closed) investigation into her email server.
Speaking of the latter, as we know, close Clinton aide Huma Abedin may be wondering what role she herself had in torpedoing Hillary Clinton’s chances at the presidency. It was her husband, Anthony Weiner, who prompted the FBI to reopen the investigation into her boss, Hillary Clinton. Since that stunning announcement just days before the election, we hadn’t seen much of Huma Abedin on the campaign trail.
Now, she’s just been spotted outside Hillary Clinton’s Brooklyn campaign headquarters. And, like many other Hillary supporters in the hours and days following the election, Huma wept openly.

While we might empathize for anyone who’s fought hard for something and then lost it so suddenly, it’s more difficult to do so when those who fought, fought so dirtily, steeped in cronyism and corruption.
Liberals are saying, “hate won.” They have it completely wrong: corruption lost.
