For those of use who were called sexist, racists, Trump-lovers, etc because we chose not to fall in line and vote for Hillary, the most delicious phase of the election fall-out has just begun--the embarrassing media leaks.
“You need to concede,” Obama told his former secretary of State as she, her family, and her top aides continued to watch results trickle in from the key Rust Belt states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Obama’s call changed that.
