Wait But Why on the 2016 Election: "Itβs Going to Be Okay"
Marlene Breverman stashed this in Politics
"A lot of people in this country feel like this right now:"
Obama just said "Ultimately we're all still on the same team."
There are two parts to Trump: 1) the hateful, narcissistic man β which we can intentionally avoid thinking about and, 2) the policies he promotes (and some could actually be very decent) which, unlike his personality, will affect us. These policies must go through rigorous scrutiny from many different prospectives before they can be enacted. This takes time, and added to it, now with social media, the wool can't easily be pulled over our eyes.Β
Immediately last night after Trump won, dedicated political, religious, and purposely non-sectarian organizations banded together with the rigorous intention of keeping the USA and our Constitution intact. And as citizens, we will.
Gosh I hope so.Β

You're so right Jared:
Sergei's response is right on:
Mark Zuckerberg, it's not just fake news. It's paid and automated trolls posting and sharing premade memes and commenting pre-written slogans. The freedom of speech was suppressed by creating so much noise, that the real voices were not heard.
