The most enjoyable tweets from the day before the 2016 election
Listen I’m not gonna tell you that I think Trump is gonna win again. And I ain’t about to tell you that I think he’s gonna lose. I just don’t know. But I DO KNOW that there are a lot of very very satisfying and funny tweets from four years ago when people were pretty arrogantly assured that Trump would lose. In this time of division and possibly pre-civil-war, I bring you the best tweets to laugh over as we all stockpile weaponry ammo and water for the inevitable race war.
Final Fox News Electoral Map:
— Political Polls (@PpollingNumbers) November 7, 2016
Fox News predicted 274 for Clinton, 215 for Trump and 49 in the tossup states. Trump ended up with 304 electorals, which is more than 215 and all the tossups. Hillary ended up with only 227.
Here are some more maps:

Jim Messina ran Obama’s 2012 campaign:
Ive spent last decade of life obsessed w Electoral College & it's very hard to figure how Trump gets to 270 tomorrow. #AintGonnaHappen

Also false, didn’t happen:
Agree–> "If Trump starts winning, Obama's federal election 'monitors' will start crying foul."

This is weird:

Did the KKK give up this year?

IT WUD BE SO BEAUTIFUL IF LATINO VOTING IN FLORIDA TOOK TRUMP DOWN

That didn’t happen either.
If Trump wins and becomes the most powerful person on earth, does he also get his Twitter account back?
— Ari Melber (@AriMelber) November 7, 2016
Yup. He did.
OK I have to admit this is pretty clever, but… didn’t work:

On the stock market – massive selloff?
Trump is most militant protectionist we've seen in a hundred years. So you would predict massive sell off right? https://t.co/Fei8GOCTMp

NOPE. It jumped up in value and has steadily increased until COVID hit.
On Melania’s future:
I predict by this time next year Melania Trump will be named the new Bachelorette.

Wait, I didn’t know he actually said this:

Stolen from Pedro’s high school presidential political platform!!
And finally… el Presidente Trumpo was called a racist because he didn’t say Beyonce’s name correctly four years ago:
Donald Trump mispronounced Beyoncé's name. I didn't even know this was possible for an American to do. https://t.co/1EngWqMpoJ
— Chris Herring (@Herring_NBA) November 7, 2016
Guess what. Four years later, he still hasn’t learned to say it correctly!
I guess you just have to elect him to see if he will ever learn to pronounce Beyonce’s name.
Well that was fun. No go read this, it’s good for you.
