Default Donald Trump elected President of the United States

Businessman Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, and will take office on January 20th, 2017.

Trump defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the general election. It's significant to note that Clinton defeated Trump in the popular vote count.

Trump's campaign received extensive media coverage, notably criticized for racist and xenophobic undertones.

What are some reactions to the 2016 Presidential Election? Both domestically and our friends around the world as well.

A sampling of some of the members of the Hall of Fame of bad calls.

Brian Epstein turns down the Beatles.
Germany attacks Russia in World War 2.
Portland drafts Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan.
Western Union rejects the telephone.

And now, the newest inductee: America elects Donald Trump.

Later that day, I found one of those special vending machines from Coca-Cola's viral marketing campaign. It was a very memorable day.

With "post-fact" becoming the Oxford dictionary's word of the year, I wonder if it's because the establishment is suffering from having cried wolf too many times?
