Yesterday night Hillary Clinton held an election night event with her supporters and campaign staff and when it became apparent that Donald Trump was going to become the President of the United States, the photos snapped at the event tell a story of devastation.

Supporters of the Democratic nominee gathered at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City on Tuesday (November 8) expecting to see Clinton give her victory speech. Unfortunately, the night took a shocking turn and she lost several of the key states she would have needed for a win.

See some of the photos below.

    Chai! This election fever is nothing to be compared to. I can never forget how nobody ate or slept in my house that night during PMB and GEJ election. It was soo bad that I kept purging throughout the night when the results was showing PMBs topping. May God forbid, that was why I never really took side for this Americans oo, at least before person get high blood pressure and may be die, I have learnt that it’s not worth it at the time GEJ conceded defeat .Politicians must be very strong people. This time must pass people. One person must win at the end and it may not be your preferred candidate! In all let’s cool off on the result please, the world has not come to an end!

    Hillary is such a disrespectful human being. She didn’t even have the decency to concede graciously and address the thousands of people that had gathered in her New York campaign head quarters last night. People sacrificed their time, not a single thank you for coming, thank you for the support,thank you for the sacrifice. Instead, she sends her campaign manager John Posta to address the crowd. Itso like going to a Kanye concert and only the background singers and dancers show up. She was scheduled to give her concession speech, which should have happened last night at 10:30 am Eastern Time. Hillary is still a no show at 11:00am. That is the height of her disrespectful, entitled, elitist mentality. If the case were reversed and this was Trump, the media will be all over it, and won’t let him here the end of it.
    Bottomline, America took their country back. They are tied of paying high taxes, while people live off their backs. Tired of the high unemployment rates, high underemployment rates, and low labor participato on rates. They saw through the media bullshit and voted to save the Supreme Court, save the unborn children from termination, and to bring their jobs back.
    BN if you like eat my comment, God is watching in 3D.
    When Jesus says YES, nobody can say no, even when the entire media and the powers that be are against. Trump did not even get support from his own party. But guess what, the silent majority has spoken.

    I have heard the words misogynist, narcissistic including all the derogatory words you can think of being used on man thrown at DT, the truth is Democrats stood a better chance with a man as their candidate, it comes as a boomerang to our senses from the acclaimed first world country, that it is obviously “a mans world” and this is premised on the fact that a career politician cant defeat a businessman who knows nothing about politics!!! abegiii no second base today …. sound the kaakaki for me.

    People are grieving, all some BN readers can see is a pair of adidas. Pair of adidas you can get in Ross or Marshals for less than $20, Readers seat here praising it when we’ve serious issues at stake . Poverty bad sha!!!!!

    As far as am concerned theres nothing to celebrate about donald trumps victory, if Americans can vote for such a questionable character into a high position as president, it just clearly shows that the so called political conciousness, awareness, intellectualism that we assume globally that Ameriacans have/posses is questonable and exaggerated,the outcome of the US election has just exposed the gullibility of ameriacan citizens,they can also fall for any cheap manipulation, empty campaign promises,well am not too suprised-the quality of the citizens of a nation is clearly manifested in the quality of leaders they produce,no good fruit can come out of a rotten basket, am really disappointed. sorry to all trum fans/supporters, am not a hillary fan either.
