As anti-Trump rallies nationwide turned hostile overnight with widespread reports of violence, looting, vandalism, and death threats against the president-elect and his supporters, police in numerous major cities were able to instill calm and regain control by handing out participation trophies to all millennial protesters who were enraged about losing the election, sources confirmed.

The shrewd tactic was the idea New York Police Officer Joe Butler, who has three twentysomething children himself, and noted to reporters Thursday that he remembered how his children “never had to deal with losing as they were growing up.”

My Commentary: Great little piece of satire! Apparently, for some of the presidential election’s losers, their “I voted” participation sticker simply wasn’t enough! LOL!

Think about this… If Killary had been chosen as president, any protests against her rulership would be attacked by the mainstream media monopoly with a PASSION… “sexism,” “misogyny,” “sore losers,” “anti-democratic,” “anti-american”

And, if things were reversed, all of the Republican-leaning media sources would be just as guilty, too! Honestly, even now, some of them are spewing anti-secession sentiment, even though they were pro-Texas secession, when it suited them!

All I see, everywhere, is hypocrisy, and doublethink. Politics is the refuge of the logically-illiterate, and morally-confused!

“This is my first step to create a world of love and harmony,” Akie Abe wrote in a Facebook status update.

Abe said she did not inform her husband in advance about what is bound to be seen as a controversial endorsement of the protests, which have been ignored by Tokyo.

(Jake Johnson) In January, at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland — largely a meeting of corporate elites and political leaders — the billionaire CEO Steve Schwarzman courteously granted an interview to Bloomberg Television.

When asked about the American political scene, Schwarzman responded just as many of his colleagues have: With utter bewilderment.
