Michelle Obama says America is entering a time of hopelessness (http://nytlive.nytimes.com/womenintheworld/2016/12/16/michelle-obama-says-america-is-entering-a-time-of-hopelessness/)

What DRAMA!!!!

20063

With fewer than 40 days remaining as first lady, Michelle Obama is continuing to reflect on the legacy she and President Obama will leave after having occupied the White House for the last eight years. In a new interview with Oprah Winfrey, the first lady addressed the election outcome and suggested that the U.S. is entering a time of hopelessness.

“We are feeling what not having hope feels like,” Obama told Winfrey in response to a question about whether President Obama had achieved the “hope and change” he promised while campaigning in 2008. As she often did while campaigning for Hillary Clinton, she didn’t mention President-elect Donald Trump by name. But she alluded to the contrast many in the country are feeling since he won the election last month. “We feel the difference now,” she said, noting that her husband had succeeded in keeping his campaign promise of fostering hope. “Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept,” she elaborated. “And Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believed that … what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?”

Maybe she will finally feel how we have been for the past 8 years...

So is she still proud to be an American?

Hope doesn't pay the bills or put food on the table.

It's an empty word without meaning outside of Christ.

I don't like Trump, but seeing a significant portion of the population go into full apocalyptic meltdown mode even before he's sworn in is quite pop-corn worthy; at least he's providing entertainment.

Not really surprised considering how she claimed that "the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country" was when her husband was elected president that she no longer feels that way.

Never much liked Trump, but all the irrational liberal lies and hate do leave me with some soft spot for him.

And a lot of others too. Shake things up and watch the democrats act like the end of the world is here. Well today is the official electoral vote. Assuming they don't steal the election, we should see another round of riots and such, until they give in to their hopelessness and accept the inevitable.

It seems that the majority of those here at Tweb who ended up voting for Trump made it clear that they didn't trust him and they were not as much voting for him as voting to keep Hillary out.

It sure is fun, though, watching the liberals go ape-poop. :shrug: Had I known it would be this much fun, I might have voted FOR Trump instead of voting against Hillary. :idea:

I'm almost feeling guilty for getting such a kick over the fact that after they worked so hard trying to get Electors pledged to Trump to vote otherwise (including numerous death threats) that over three times as many of Hillary's electors chose to defect as did Trumps. Almost, but not quite :blush:

If Hillary had been up with, say, 272 votes and the defections still happened, there'd be some people entering the witness protection program.

Oops. Four times as many! :lmbo:

According to that bastion of right wing "fake news" propaganda, NPR (:ahem:):

Trump secured 304 electoral votes — two fewer than he earned in November, according to the Associated Press, which tracked results from capitol to capitol. That was despite a pitched effort by some on the left who wrote letters to Trump electors trying to persuade them to switch their votes or not vote at all and keep Trump short of the 270 needed.

Not only did it not happen, but more electors tried to defect from Hillary Clinton Monday than from Trump, by a count of eight to two. Three Democratic electors in Maine, Minnesota, and Colorado tried to vote for candidates other than Clinton. The electors' votes, however, were disallowed because of state rules binding them to the statewide popular vote winner.

And of course ABC and NBC have ignored this after repeatedly hyping the left's doomed effort to use the Electoral College (while simultaneously calling for it to be dismantled) to overturn the election in Hillary's favor. Only CBS mentioned it. Barely. When Major Garrett said in passing that Trump "suffered fewer defections than Hillary Clinton."

IF they made it that far.
