    Clinton ran such a terrible campaign she lost working class voters to a man who lives in a multi million dollar penthouse in NYC with a gold and marble elevator. How embarrassing.

    "It's not the government's fault your life is a mess, it's foreigners", folk that think like that are the most easily manipulated.

    Trump and Farage.

    Titans of historical progress whom balladers will praise for centuries to come.

    Butthurt that she lost? No I'm LMAO over the whole thing. Rumors are Bill Clinton was po'd that the campaign wasn't focusing on the rust belt more. I'd love to know who the idiot was that didn't listen to Bill and instead thought calling Trump supporters a basket of deplorables and basically ignoring places like Wisconsin and Iowa was a good idea. I guess the good thing for Democrats is they're finally rid of Clinton, Inc.

    I hope you're joking. Anyway these "working class" voters are in for a rude awakening when P.T. Barnum doesn't deliver what he promised and what congress does deliver is not what they voted for.

    Working-class voters should have voted for the Goldman Sachs candidate who makes $260,000 for a 20-minutes speech. Does not compute.

    Hillary was a poor candidate.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I'd like to think that I wouldn't waste my money on frivolous and extravagant luxuries like a ridiculous gilded elevator if I had more money than I knew what to do with, but who knows.

    Trump has money. BFD. I've never been given a job by a poor person. What's the problem here. Clinton is a multi millionaire as well.

    It was started by a poster who if I recall correctly tends to represent herself as conservative, though not necessarily a fan of Trump. Calling it butthurt seems to be a misinterpretation of its tone.

    Really? I've seen hotel elevators with a similar appearance. I always found them kind of tacky, although I'm not a big fan of ostentatious styling.

    Oh, dear @Meister; seriously, you are German, therefore, you do know the difference between class and bling bling.

    Certain things are class - that is - they are well designed, they look elegant, they work well. We might think Apple computers, Leica cameras, certain wrist watches, the Citroen DS - you know elegance when you see it.

    Unfortunately, that elevator lacks class. That elevator is completely devoid of class as it is tacky and entirely lacking in taste.

    Unfortunately, it screams crude vulgarian. Quel surprise.

    It's amazing to me that people who din't vote for Trump expect Trump to represent their hopes, dreams, values, and opinions.

    We - well, at the presumption of speaking for them - we - that is, they - don't. We (they) know he doesn't represent our - er, dreams , hopes, aspirations, values, opinions. Indeed, we know (lamentable and regrettable though this is) that he positively despises our values, hopes, dreams, and, er, opinions....

    We (they, as I am, of course, separated by an entire ocean from this blessed insanity) merely wonder whether he intends to adhere to the standards - or promises - he himself made to his electorate.

    Nothing to do with us.

    Meanwhile, please permit me to stifle an unseemly snigger.

    Hillary was forced to steal the nomination from a 73-year-old socialist with a thin to nonexistent legislative record.

    Then she was soundly defeated by...Donald Trump.

    Evidently she would have lost to any of the 17 GOP candidates.

    Nominating a pathological liar under FBI investigation may have not been the smartest political move.

    Well, at least you are living political reality, in that you understand he does not represent the values of people that found him and his supporters to be a basket of deplorables.

    Now if you could face the reality that if you can't vote in the US, I could care less how you do things where you come from.

    Again, I daresay.

    But we have to care about your outcomes, because what you do affects the world. Politically, economically, militarily.

    So, yes, I'm afraid that it is quite - indeed, perfectly- legitimate for us to have concerns - frankly, rather serious concerns - when an individual with not a single minute of experience in government or in public service, a history of bankruptcy, a cavalier disregard for the truth, contempt for experts, (and women, and minorities) is appointed - through the ballot box to high office.

    Oh, for Dear Divinity's sake.

    Even you, author of a thousand hyperbolic threads, laden with wild words and hateful adjectives - cannot believe such utter delusional drivel.

    Or, not credibly, and not without gagging.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but only the opinions of those who vote will be counted. Just because a vote is counted, doesn't mean it's the winning vote. Elections have consequences, we are not all winners.

    if being successful enough to afford a gold elevator in a muli-million dollar penthouse in ones own property in NYC is embarrassing, sign me up. here in America working class people are thankful and most are eager to have the ability to capture even half that success.

    it's always funny to see people butt-hurt over the success of others. as if they have a right to say how the successful should enjoy their rewards. please.....

    Which is precisely why Hillary lost the election. The working class knew that she didn't give a damn about them; all she wanted was the White House.

    Hillary, political genius that she is, told West Virginia coal miners that she would put them all in the unemployment line. Hillary is genuinely shocked that West Virginia coal miners didn't listen to Lady Gaga and Lena Dunham and flock to the polls for her.
