When you’re in the real world, you have to work for a living. But when you’re in the coddled special snowflake millennial world (or maybe a liberal campus), you can work with all of the amenities of a five-star hotel. Because, as we all know, no job can be done without a frozen yogurt machine.

With anti-Trump protests and riots raging for a second night in a row, CNN political commentator Van Jones had a dire warning for the rest of the panel on Thursday’s Anderson Cooper 360, “We're on track for a tragedy.” Even with his ominous warning, Jones couldn’t help but toot his own horn, stating, “I predict stuff all the time. People tell me I'm wrong. And then they come back and say I was right.”

The Huffington Post seemed to have their panties in a twist after it got wind of some comments that comedian Dave Chappelle made during a stand-up show in New York this past Friday, even calling his routine “bizarre” because he voiced his displeasure with Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.

It’s okay to call President Obama cool again, according to NBC’s Superstore. Quite the change from 2012 when almost anything said about him was considered racist, including the word “cool.”

Wednesday morning at 12:42 a.m., as it was becoming clear that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was on the verge of officially defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton for the presidency, Paul Krugman at the New York Times noted at the paper's election night live blog that the "markets are plunging." He then wrote: "If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never."

On the night of the election, as it was becoming apparent that Donald Trump would win there were reports that the value of the Mexican peso dropped 2 percent. Since then the value has dropped even more, resulting in CBS to worry about their economy on Thursday’s CBS Evening News. “The Trump election, however, sent shivers through Mexico's economy. The peso dropped 12 percent in two days,” announced Anchor Scott Pelley.

If there’s one concept that seems laughable at this point, it’s that the press needs to get much tougher on Donald Trump. Like they've all been cuddling with him? But there was Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan in Thursday’s Style section calling for more brass knuckles.

A slew of sports media outlets have covered the presidential election results and while many lashed out at President-elect Donald Trump, TNT’s NBA pre- and post-game personalities struck a different tone and led by host Ernie Johnson revealing that while he disliked both candidates, but was “hopeful” for the future due to his identity as follower and believer in Jesus Christ. Johnson ruled that, as someone who’s a Christian, he would be praying for Trump as well as those who are feeling scared for their own future in light of his election over Hillary Clinton.

Less than a month after gloatingly predicting a major loss for Donald Trump, Washington Post columnist reacted on Wednesday to the election result in a highly bitter manner. Poor guy. His Beltway Bubble safe space is about to be punctured by those he spent over a year sneering at and his column reflects his rage.
You would think someone with such a poor prediction track record would absorb just a bit of humility and keep his anger in check. However, Dionne never seems to learn from experience. His legacy for laughably wrong predictions about Trump which led to his extreme bitterness began last April with his column titled, This time it really is the end of Trump. Really.

Remember how liberals went over-the-top apoplectic when Donald Trump declined to explicitly state that he would accept the results of the election? And what are we seeing after Trump's victory? The most infantile elements of the left -- pardon the redundancy -- engaging in a collective hissy fit and refusing to accept the results of the election.
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow tried last night to serve up a justifiable rationale for this churlish refusal and instead made a laughable analogy.

In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s historic victory over Hillary Clinton in this epic election, the media descended into a state of total shock and surprise. On Wednesday’s and Thursday’s exclusive election editions of Morning Joe, the liberal commentators present conducted a series of serious self-critical discussions on doing their jobs as journalists, which at one point turned controntational toward the media.

After an episode about the illegal detention of Muslims, the ABC drama Designated Survivor has now moved on to the cause of championing the rights of Syrian refugees. They’ll take any excuse to lecture on Islamophobia after an Islamic terrorist attack. (Although, the way the show is going, it’s going to turn out to be some evil cabal of rich white conservative men who planned the attack that wiped out the Capitol.)

Mark Halperin, managing editor for the Bloomberg Politics media outlet, said during Thursday's edition of the Morning Joe program on the MSNBC cable television channel that the New York Times is continuing its campaign of obvious bias against Donald Trump even after the Republican candidate won the presidential election on Tuesday.
As proof of his assertion, Halperin held up the day's edition of the newspaper with the front-page headline of “Democrats, Students and Foreign Allies Face the Reality of a Trump Presidency.” “If Donald Trump had lost,” he asked, “do you think the press would have been so concerned about his supporters in their disappointment?”

In the first 24 hours after Donald Trump’s stunning victory, one of the media figures who appeared to be taking the news the hardest was MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell who began his Wednesday show by hailing President Barack Obama as “the most noble man” to ever become president since George Washington owned slaves and Abraham Lincoln was genocidal toward Native Americans.
