Bethenny Frankel is only one of the many people who have taken over social media to express their views on the Presidential results.
Her opinion is pretty controversial to say the least, but then again, considering the entire country is pretty much divided, is hard to say anything that is not at all controversial at this point.
“Crazy to bully and badger over the election. We and the media nominated them and we had the right to vote for either.” She wrote.
“This protesting is moronic. What is the government going to say? ‘Just kidding. Do over?'”
What Frankel refers to are the protests that occurred just a few hours after Trump was elected. Thousands of Clinton’s supporters went out in the streets shouting: “NOT OUR PRESIDENT!”
“People are burning flags. This is not a joke,” she said, adding:
“Cursing and screaming and fighting and burning flags is not productive right now… I’m sorry – processing grief and frustration is one thing. This is another.”
Of course, internet users shot back immediately following her post. One such user said that of course she thought protests were unnecessary and stupid considering she is one of the “multimillionaire white women [who hasn’t] exactly been the focus of [Trump’s] vitriol for over a year.”
By late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning, the number of protesters in The Big Apple rose to about 100,000. They shut down streets and stopped traffic. And although we all get it that the entire world at this point is in crisis and feels like an a lot more dangerous place but it is too late. They should have protested first thing when Trump’s candidacy was announced. But no one actually though he would end up taking office.
We really hope that the situation will calm down and both parts will think about the country first and foremost. Just remember what former president Obama said on Wednesday: “We’re patriots first. We all want what’s best for this country.”
