In a stunning political earthquake Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Yes, it really happened.
Donald Trump scored a stunning and historic upset victory in the presidential election Wednesday morning, once again defying predictions and winning key battleground states to capture the White House.
Giddy supporters at the New York Hilton — who were sullen just hours earlier — erupted in cheers as the GOP nominee closed in on victory, chanting, “President Trump,” “Drain the Swamp,” and “Lock her up!” about Hillary Clinton.
The celebration grew wilder still when TV monitors showed people crying at Clinton’s party at the Jacob Javits Center.
Ed Rollins, who ran Trump’s Great America Super PAC, basked in the victory.
“We won the presidency, the Senate and House. When’s the last time that happened?” Rollins told The Post. “The polls were bad! Trump is going to be president. He’s won this thing. He caught the wave of public discontent and rode it. Washington has to be stunned.”
“I’m feeling great,” Trump ally Rudy Giuliani told The Post as he strode into the party.
“If I can think of an analogous election, it would have to be Andrew Jackson. This is the people revolting against the Republican establishment,” he said.
While the numbers still aren’t final, the GOP easily kept the House and will hold on to the Senate, racking up victories in a number of states where the incumbents of GOP nominees were thought to have little chance. Meanwhile, the strong, powerful, fearless woman who was poised to shatter the so-called glass ceiling couldn’t show her face in public after the humiliating defeat.
Trump won a shocking victory in the election, beating Clinton in several states she was thought to have a lock on.
Clinton will offer a concession speech on Wednesday, a Clinton aide said.
She’s likely drunk and terrorizing her flunkies. Pathetically, she sent that tool John Podesta out to face the crying groupies at the Javits Center. Too funny.
