Indian left liberals’ reactions to Trump win: From the hilarious to the obnoxious

On one hand there was a candidate who was part of the system, was politically correct and the darling of all the liberals. And on the other, an outlier, who didn’t smile pretty, didn’t think twice before speaking about the ‘politically incorrect’ issues, dubbed a Bigot, racist, xenophobic, misogynist etc. He didn’t even get unanimous support from his own party! Yet, the latter won. In many ways this election felt like a repeat of our 2014 Lok Sabha elections where a man who was vilified by the media, finally won.

There were also certain points which were also comically repeated in the recently concluded US elections. Many here vowed to go to Pakistan once Modi won, this apparently also caught up in the US with celebs like Bryan Cranston and Miley Cyrus declared their intention to leave the county of Trump won.

Polls created analytically by eminent psephologists miserably failed. Media there went a step further and outright endorsed a candidate. Predictably the reaction of those who thrive with the blessing of the establishment, was anything but pretty. Even though the establishment getting toppled was in another part of the world. Here are some of the reactions we managed to capture:

And NDTV might have also gone off air today had it not been for the government’s stay.

Some had already declared the US as “racist” and “bigots” just because it voted against what they wished:

Some had a literal melt-down:

While some others just ran to the nearest corner to cry:

On one hand they wanted a women to set an example by becoming the 1st president of the US and on the other hand objectifying another who is part of the opposition.

Maybe he was just following the global left liberals, like this “historian”:

And this: Barkha was all set to wager her money on Hillary, but she ended up in the wrong camp:

Our very own MSG street-fighter turned Octopus Paul had made some strong predictions:

And it appeared, he was found talking to himself yet again:

Finally what might sum up the American media’s modus operandi for the elections
