2016 Election Media

Election Night Liberal Tears – Journalists’ Edition

Written by Joe Scudder

Esquire got news media people to recount their election night Liberal tears when Donald Trump won.

It is fun to revisit that moment and experience the election night Liberal tears.

But it isn’t all fun and games. These reporters really believed Donald Trump was the great Satan. They had no business posing as journalists when they were actually Hillary Clinton campaign volunteers. They hated Trump and thought most of the country wanted Hillary as President. Even now, months later, that is still their attitude.

The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Journalists Retell Their Election Night Horror Stories.

Reporters, editors, and other members of the media are reliving their election night horror stories in a new exclusive detailing what journalists and figures in the presidential campaigns themselves experienced on the night of Nov. 8, 2016.

Esquire interviewed 40 people who either covered or worked on one of the campaigns during the 2016 presidential election. The individuals gave their personal stories about the unexpected election of President Donald Trump and the defeat of Hillary Clinton. Most of the reporters and editors who were interviewed expressed shock and horror at Trump’s upset victory.

Here are some of their stories.

Rebecca Traister, writer at large for New Yorker Magazine, shared her feelings on being confident about a Clinton victory and how she subsequently felt “so alone” when it was apparent that Clinton would lose. She also observed Clinton supporters throwing up and crying on the floor, according to Esquire, which recounted the progression of her thoughts throughout the night.

The Free Beacon then quotes Traister’s own words, and the words of several other journalists. They are unbelievably delusional.
