Poker Pros React To Donald Trump Becoming US PresidentNovember 9, 2016 11:00 am
The US Presidential campaign has been running for almost two years, during which time poker players on both sides of the political divide frequently took pot shots at one another on social media. Outspoken critics against Donald Trump included such players as Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Selbst, and Liv Boeree, while lined up in the opposite camp were the likes of Doyle Brunson, Mike Matusow, and Matt Glantz.
Last night, in one of the biggest upsets in the whole of US history, the people voted to elect Donald Trump to be the country’s 45th president, with the billionaire businessman having successfully persuaded the electorate that he was the right man to tackle the issues of immigration, terrorism, national security, and the economy.
With that in mind, here are some of the twitter comments made by some of the most outspoken pros about the USA’s latest president:
Before: “Trump supporters make sure you show up and vote this November 35th! We should all vote, even you people.”
After: “GOP President GOP Senate GOP Congress Pray for America and hope for the best. They now have free will to do what they please. Good luck.”
“Seriously, @elonmusk hurry the f up with Mars. I want out. Sure, vote to get rid of a flawed system. But for fuck’s sake, make sure you have a better system in place to replace it.”
“How many of these celebs will keep their word and leave the country?”
“Clinton HQ singing “don’t stop believing” …. I think it’s time to stop actually #FatLadyIsSinging”
“Now that the election is over, can we all go back to being friends again?”
“I’ll be honest I cant quit crying the man worked so hard #Election2016. To all the people in America i say lets all heal and MAKE AMERICA,GREAT AGAIN!!”
“Mexico and Canada just announced that they are building a wall!”
