No, Hillary didn't lose because of Putin (also not because of 'fake news', racism, transphobia). She lost because she was a horrible candidate (which has never been news to DNC). A truly horrible candidate.

But still, no matter how much you might hate Hillary and how convinced you might be that Trump would have won anyway, you still can think that investigating possible Russian meddling in the US election is important.

All this looking at everything not with finding the truth in mind but thinking how you can stress the part that supports your existing position and obscure and discredit the part that doesn't help your side asap and by whatever means is hilarious (and quite unfortunate).

Yeah, I was expecting this (see here). Didn't have to wait too long (see here).
Oh boy, I think we are really hell-bent on carrying him into the White House for the second term.

What a night. I have to say that watching democracy at work is exhilarating. And nobody does it quite like the Americans.

I cannot imagine voting for Trump (same goes for Clinton actually) and I predicted a different outcome (I also got it wrong with Brexit) but now that "we the people" have spoken, I wish the best of luck to the president-elect Donald Trump in rising to the challenges of the world's no 1 job and hope that he will do great (and prove me wrong again).

Congrats to my friends who supported Trump, I can imagine how justifiably intoxicated you are with this victory. And I hope that the understandable but still very ott hysterics of many Hillary supporters will subside in a couple of days or weeks and they will not double down on calling everyone racists and -phobes (I think that was one of the things that brought you Trump) and the US, awesome as it is, will move on to what it does best, business as usual (and providing entertainment for the rest of us every now and then).

Looking at this photo I thought I could almost hear them singing "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" for a second. That would be one way to ruin Christmas difficult to compete with.

And of course the internet is catching up on the debate, someone thought they were singing this:

♫ I got you to wipe emails
I got you to shame females
I got you to cough & faint
I got you to grab a taint
I got you, babe
I got you, babe ♫

I also like this one from yesterday's debate:

I never thought the day when I would be that close to being on the same wave with North Korea's News Service would ever come. Unfortunately it has. It is a scary thing to realise.

While Donald Trump pumps out tough rhetoric towards China, the Chinese are already in full swing making money on Trump.

CNN put this picture of Trump at the top of their homepage today.

Is it photoshopped? He does not seem to look so ridiculously orange in the video (although pretty orange too).

How can he be that orange? There are people around him, right? Family, countless advisers, professional make up people? How comes a billionaire who is constantly on TV and is running for the top job in the world still ends up with the Tango shade of orange face?

And why fake tan looks orange anyway? Is it really impossible to fake tan people without turning them orange?

At lunch people at the next table were playing "elect, marry, kill" using Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. Is sex getting replaced with the election?

Feel free to share your take if you want.

Update from comments: Judging by their accents two of them were Americans, the other two were Brits and one of them was Dutch. The Dutch one married Trump!
