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.

Liberal CBS host Stephen Colbert is still not over the election results. On the most recent Late Show, he wondered aloud how God could “let” Donald Trump win. This is the same man who freaked out on Tuesday night, blurting, “What the fuck is happening?” During Wednesday’s monologue, Colbert lamented, “I'm a man of some faith, but when bad things like this happen like this—  and this does feel bad—  I have to ask, how could God let this happen?”

MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host Brian Williams promised that his show would “cancel” itself after the election, but it was still alive on Wednesday night providing an enclave for liberal meltdowns over Donald Trump’s electoral win as Demos head Heather McGhee insisted that Donald Trump’s “megaphone” of racism followed in the footsteps of Ronald Reagan “perfect[ing] the dog whistle talking about welfare queens.”

If there’s a competition to see who can have the most dramatic media meltdown in response to Donald Trump’s election, then comedian Michelle Wolf is definitely in the running. For his Daily Show Wednesday night, host Trevor Noah invited Wolf on air for her reaction to Trump’s win in the 2016 presidential election. She began her three and a half minute outburst, “As my autocorrect would say, duck this ducking election.”

The “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC all broke in early Thursday afternoon to cover the conclusion of the monumental White House meeting between President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump but it was ABC that found it worthwhile to play on-screen for viewers inflammatory images of far-left, anti-Trump protests holding a Trump pinata on a noose.

On Thursday's New Day, during a panel discussion of the scheduled meeting at the White House between President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump, and whether the two would be cordial despite their differences, co-host Alisyn Camerota at one point wondered why it is that President Obama "has to be gracious" to Trump instead of just sending an intern to meet him.

Former California governor, actor and anti-carbon crusader Arnold Schwarzenegger issued some harsh words for anyone who doesn’t want the Environmental Protection Agency regulating carbon dioxide.

In a recently posted video, the Terminator star said, “Some politicians even want to shut down the EPA’s ability to regulate carbon! I would like to strap their mouth to an exhaust pipe of a truck, turn on the engine and let’s see how long it would take for them to tap out.”
