Cornell Students Hold A “Cry In” Gathering To Mourn Trump’s Victory

cry in cornell

“Sorry, guys. Your candidate lost, and that sucks.”

Regardless of whether Hillary or Donald won last night, I’d be muttering that same phrase to friends and family who supported the losing party. But there’s no crying over it — unless you’re liberal Cornell students who decided to hold a “cry in” after Trump’s victory. Yep, because the Snowflake Party apparently wasn’t snowflakey enough.

From The Cornell Daily Sun:

Over 50 Cornellians gathered on Ho Plaza this afternoon for a cry in to “mourn” in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s shocking presidential victory.

Braving the cold, wind and occasional rain, Cornellians sat in a circle to share stories and console each other, organizers encouraging attendees to gather closer together and “include each other.”

Willard Straight Hall Resource Center employees gave out blankets, tissues and hot chocolate to keep participants warm, while students signed posters with words of encouragement and protest, including “Donald Trump is not my president.”

Zoe Maisel ’18, co-president of Planned Parenthood Generation Action at Cornell, said she and co-president Cassidy Clark ’17 began organizing the cry-in last night for “those of us who have been fighting.”

“We need to just take a break and just cry before … tomorrow we get back up and keep fighting, because people feel really, really powerless,” she said.

Well, if we’re all going to take a moment to collect ourselves then let me take one real quick too.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh god. Oh god. My sides. Oh god. The irony. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. It hurts. Ow ow ow. HAHAHAHA.

Alright, we good.

If you watch The Cornell Daily Sun’s video, the criers that gathered are pretty much what you’d expect, except there is truly an underwhelming amount of tears happening. I went into it hoping for red faces, snot bubbles, loud screaming to the skies asking “Why, Harambe? WHYYYY?!?!” A letdown definitely, but let’s not lose focus. These students realize shit like this is why he won the election, right? He was strong and stuck with his convictions regardless of how controversial it was. These snowflakes would’ve started protesting two words into this article when I called everyone reading “guys.” Sorry, boners.

I love the “he’s not my president” thing too. Trump is, in fact, your president. Sorry again, boners.

As a general rule, you shouldn’t do anything in politics that you can’t do in baseball.

There’s no crying in politics. Don’t worry, Dems. 2020’s Kanye/Tebow ticket is looking pretty strong. Keep fighting that fight.

        The heard needs some thinning. The Bible says prosper and multiply, but the Bible didn’t have SJWs to deal with either. Even if they did the SJWs would’ve been slaughtered by one of the Old Testament tribes.

      I’m trying to figure out if it’s a man or woman. Ha, who am I kidding, it probably identifies as either depending on the day of the week.

        There are literally only two genders. Male and female. Identifying as anything different is ridiculous, you twat. Fuck out of here and go cry in a safe space.

    God I love this shit. Poetic justice you pieces of human garbage. You ran the show the last 8 years and laughed at sanity as you protested some of the dumbest shit in the history of the world, and received the attention you craved. Your selfishness in attempting to normalize things a majority of the country disagreed with, but was forced to accept started to ruin this country. I’m glad you snowflakes lost this election, and I hope you realize how selfish and shitty you’ve been for the past 8 years.

      These morons created trump. With their constant bullying and shaming language toward anyone that questioned their narrative…not even disagreed with but questioned their narrative got you tarred and feathered

        Funny, trump beat hillary in every income bracket that made $50k or more. Hillary dominated the lowest two brackets.

        Glad to know all those educated folk are doing so well in life (especially since they almost all live in super expensive, super liberal cities).

        That said, Gary Johnson 2016 <3

        (Let’s be honest, millenials are generally under that 50k bar and the majority of those who are over are also white, the baby boomers and those born just after screwed us over)

    I’d comment but then I remembered I’m not allowed to have an opinion as a white male.

    If it turns out to be true that Clinton won the popular vote, then thank God for the electoral college, which I in theory hate, but quite possibly not today.

      The frightening thing is if Clinton wins this popular vote then deomcraps will have won 6 of the last 7 popular votes. That befuddles and scares me.

        Yeah, but she one it on personality and not ideas. It is comforting to know that conservative ideas kept Trump relevant, regardless of his character issues.

        Hillary didn’t win it personality she has no personality … she won it on the welfare vote.

        Suprising considering how many of them are probably too busy waiting in line to collect welfare checks to wait in line to cast a vote.

        There’s a significant time for a person to breed when they aren’t working and collecting welfare.

        well more educated people statistically arent reproducing as much likely due to access to sex ed, reproductive services, and a general awareness of world occurances. Generally, the more educated vote left.
