Imagine, just for a moment, that Hillary was now president-elect (although, in a reversal, she had lost the popular vote). I know, I know, this is pretty disgusting, but bear with me for just a moment. And, that as a result, a bunch of conservative snowflakes (I know, I know, this is a null set; this sort of thing is a monopoly of our friends on the left), were whining and protesting the fact that Hillary was soon to become president of the U.S. They would be stopping traffic, demanding that classes be cancelled, yelling “Hillary is not my president,” asking for safe spaces and trigger warnings, calling for the end of the popular vote as determinative, etc.
How do you think the mainstream media would react to such a series of activities? Would they be calling for coddling the protestors? Would they characterize them as thoughtful? Not a bit of it. They would be giving them the back of their hand, calling them white supremacists, racists, deplorables, etc.
