we really do have an alternate universe now...

[www.newsweek.com]

Those who backed Trump to win the race have criticized the bookmaker's decision and called for it to reconsider, with one even suggesting legal action.

"My life savings has been placed on Trump to win and the votes have not all been counted, so why are you saying I've lost," one bettor asked the firm on Twitter.

We have so many broken people on the right (and some on the left). So many people that have lost it.

Over Donald Trump of all people. A known lowlife. A known scammer. A known selfish pig.

Over.... Donald..... Trump.

I don't think they'll be able to come back from that. We can't ever let them win again if we plan to keep on living.

I started saying it about 10 years ago or so... it's the internet. The ability to find like-minded people no matter how crazed you are. You find them, you help each other reenforce the delusions and over time, built them stronger while finding new recruits. I really don't see how this gets undone.

I suspect if you give it time, the lefties will become just as crazy. They didn't have Rush and Foxnews to inject adrenaline into the situation, but I'm seeing lefties closing their minds much like righties do more often than I used to.

This is the saddest statement I've read in a long time:

"My life savings has been placed on Trump to win..."

So what was the bettor trying to prove with their idiotic wager? Not a lot of sympathy in my heart for this person.

Not out to prove anything, he just wanted to get some easy money because Trump couldn't possibly lose.

Never bet if you can't afford to lose.
