The year of 2016, what truly made this year so memorable was the Presidential Election of USA . It was so important that it was a part of the popular culture, people who usually are not into politics became obsessed with it. Starting from actors, singers, athletes, and basically any people who was famous tried to influence it. Not to mention the countless debate which took over the internet by storm. The election became a reality television show.
The thing made the election so heated and dramatic was the two candidates, who, I have to say, are very interesting characters.
One of them was the republican candidate Donald Trump, the greatest shit talker that ever lived, a billionaire who achieved a lot more than anyone can dream of. Also, basically he does not care about anything, speaking his mind without fear. He said things which people are usually not allowed to say, and people liked someone who was a voice against the authority.
On the other hand, was the almost first female president of America, democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. She is basically the manifestation of liberal feminism, holding to all the liberal values, the hope of all liberals. She is also the spouse of the former president Bill Clinton, making her being president even more interesting.
So it comes down to this:
Successful billionaire and the greatest shit talker of all time
The first female president, whose husband was also the president
Guess who won?
The Donald Trump.
Then began the endless protest, rants, and cries that took over the Internet. Many different people had different opinions on this, some where completely against it, somewhere genuinely neutral, and some where enjoying the victory. This was one of the biggest upsets ever. Leonardo Di Caprio winning the Oscar was a joke, everything else that happened this year was shadowed.
