Celebrities React To Donald Trump’s Election Win: “World Will Never Be The Same”

 

Singer Cher has accused two alternative candidates who stood in the U.S. presidential election of helping Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

The bitter battle to become America’s next leader came to a climax on Tuesday (08Nov16) when the controversial billionaire emerged triumphant over Hillary on Wednesday (09Nov16) after winning a majority of votes in vital states including Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania and surpassing the 270 U.S. electoral college votes needed to win.

In an angry Twitter tirade Clinton supporter Cher blamed two other candidates who stood in the election, Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein, for siphoning off votes which could have blocked Trump’s victory.

“IMBECILE GARY JOHNSON BRINGS DOWN (world emoji) BECAUSE OF NARCISSISM & IGNORANCE JILL (Stein) YOURE (sic) WORTHLESS (sic) U COULD HAVE SAVED US,WHY DIDNT YOU (sic).”

Between them Johnson and Stein won more than 4 million votes in the election, which if distributed in key states could’ve edged Clinton to victory.

The I Got You Babe singer, 70, who had previously threatened to “leave the planet” if Trump won, also slammed America’s new president elect, writing that the “world will never be the same” after his unexpected win.

Clinton had huge backing from America’s pop and rock stars, with Lady Gaga, Madonna, Ariana Grande, Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, and BeyoncΓ© all among her high profile backers.

Ariana shared her distraught feelings on Twitter, simply writing, “I am in tears”, while Madonna struck a more defiant tone tweeting, “A New Fire Is Lit We Never Give Up. We Never Give In.”

In a string of tweets after learning the result, Katy wrote that she was set to cry “her false eyelashes off”, before calling on people opposed to Trump to “RISE UP” and adding, “Do not sit still. Do not weep. MOVE. We are not a nation that will let HATE lead us.”

Hip hop stars Snoop Dogg and Macklemore also shared their feelings about the result on social media, with the Beautiful rapper suggesting on Twitter he may move to Toronto Canada.

I am disappointed, shocked and shaken at my core by what has transpired tonight. I gathered around the TV with my family and loved ones, ready to celebrate history being made. My daughter had this little blue dress on. I was ready to pop the Martinelli’s and hold her, watching Hilary Clinton become the first female president of the United States of America. But…It didn’t happen. I had a sick feeling in my gut, riddled with anxiety as the polls started coming in. After hours of a growing pit in my stomach, it was over. I left the TV, grabbed my daughter and took her to bed. But now, as I’m laying next to my her as she sleeps, I remember. Remember what I have control over and what I don’t. I don’t have control over Donald Trump becoming president. That has been decided. But what I do have control over is where I go from here. I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they’re from. I will teach her how important it is to be an advocate for humanity. Not just the portion of humanity that benefits her. I will teach her non violent communication. That in the face of hatred we must love each other even harder. Not give in. Not get discouraged or feel like our progress in the past is void. Keeping fighting for all of us, with an emphasis on those that and have been the most affected by systemic oppression. I will teach her that when she is silent during moments of injustice, she is siding with the oppressor. I will teach her that walls divide people, and by their nature cannot bring us closer. And that just because someone holds the most powerful position in the world, does not make that person right, just or fair. Donald Trump is not raising my daughter. I am. I get to encourage and nurture her to be who she wants to be. Teach her that her voice and actions can change the world. Teach her that she can do anything that a man can do. And one day, even become president of the United States of America. I have work to do. It starts now. And that work is the only thing bringing me peace at the moment

Macklemore revealed on Instagram how he had watched the election with his one-year-old daughter Sloane hoping to see Clinton become the first female president. He explained that in the wake of her defeat he would be teaching his daughter to oppose Trump’s divisive views on race and sexism.

After winning the election, the victorious candidate is set to be sworn in as America’s 45th president in January next year (17).
