Before President Donald Trump, we had a wonderful president. He was full of class, grace, and no scandal. He was a dream, and though he deserves a break and quiet life now, we wish he could be our president again. In our hearts, he will always be our president.
With the shocking election of Trump, things seemed so dismal especially as Republicans started winning state seats after Trump made his nominations. However, the tide is turning, and there may just be a light at the end of the tunnel.
In what served as a sign to Republicans, however, several Democrats took back control throughout the country in local and state races. Most significantly, however, was the gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey. Ralph Northam won Virginia, and Philip Murphy took New Jersey by storm.
Funnily enough, Trump showed just how much of a sore loser he is after he tried to distance himself from Virginia Republican nominee Ed Gillespie. He tweeted:
‘Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!’
Right except there really wasn’t any significant winning Tuesday. If the tables were turned with Republicans taking sweeping victories, however, the president would gloat nonstop throughout the day. However, in a show of grace and class, President Obama did not gloat in his congratulatory tweet.
‘This is what happens when the people vote. Congrats @RalphNortham and @PhilMurphyNJ. And congratulations to all the victors in state legislative, county and mayors’ races. Every office in a democracy counts!’
How classy and benevolent is that especially when compared to Trump’s sourpuss tweet? Granted, former Vice President Joe Biden was a little bit uglier in his congratulatory tweet; however, that’s crazy Uncle Joe, and we would expect no different. He’s a honey badger. He doesn’t care. Also, it still isn’t as ugly as Trump’s.
‘A resounding defeat tonight for President Trump. Voters around the country rejected the ugly politics we have seen this past year. Instead, they chose candidates who unite and inspire us.’
You know who is inspiring and could unite the Democratic party? Joe Biden. That’s a major hint and wink at Biden to run for president in 2020.
What Tuesday’s elections revealed is that Americans, whether Trump would like to believe it or not, aren’t in love with his politics. Furthermore, the Democratic wins throughout America prove the people are ready for change when it comes to the hostile political atmosphere. Also, it’s a referendum on the Republican-held Senate and House in the U.S. Congress. They’ve continuously failed their constituency, despite having a majority and a Republican president. It only took a year, but people are already sick of the job Republicans are doing and are aiming for change. This was the momentum needed for Democrats to get the ball rolling and push for a government takeover. Hopefully, they can keep up that momentum.
Inspiring tweets from Obama and Biden definitely can’t hurt that momentum. Don’t believe us? Check out the responses to Obama’s tweet below.
