Donald Trump, Twitter, and Election 2012.

Celebrities have been misguidedly thinking for years that people care what they have to say. Twitter has only fueled their narcissistic fire. Twitter allows one to think that the people reading their thoughts are hanging on their every word. Granted, there are people who truly can't wait to hear what a famous public figure has to say. I admittedly got very excited that one time where Roseanne Barr retweeted me. However, the average person couldn't care less what a famous person has to say about current events

On November 6th, 2012, social media was on fire with impotent rage about the election. Donald Trump, a known political flip-flopper, was easily one of the loudest voices of the night. Apparently, Trump assumes that Americans still care what he has to say. I'm guessing that there are very few people who still take him seriously, after hearing his asinine remarks over the years.

He proceeded to throw a hissy fit about the election results, sounding like a 14-year-old girl, rather than the 250-year-old man that he is. What follows are some quotes, right from the horse's mouth.

"He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!"

"We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!"

"Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us."

"This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy...Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble...like never before."

            Trump should have understood that very few people are going to get on his bandwagon. We don't care what an over-the-hill capitalist billionaire who we find somewhat irrelevant has to say. He should have figured that out from the election results alone. But hey, there's always the chance he'll move to Canada like he says he will.
