We can all take heart from these Hillary supporters

Whether we're Trump supporters disgusted by the ugly displays of some Hillary supporters... or Hillary supporters who are stunned and lost and don't know what to think or where to turn... or somewhere in the middle or even an outlier... we can all take heart from these positive and proactive responses to Trump's win/their loss. I'm going to start with Ellen Degeneres, just because I like her best:

'We all love our country': Ellen DeGeneres delivers hopeful monologue taped before election tally

'People have been very passionate about this race. And I think it's because we all love our country, we just have different ideas about what's best for it.

'Which is part of what makes America great. And I believe that we can all come together because if you take away the labels, you realize we're far more alike than we are different,' she added.


And then there are the hopeful and inspiring words of Hillary herself, and Obama:

Highlights of Hillary Clinton’s Concession Speech and President Obama’s Remarks

Of Mr. Trump, Mrs. Clinton said she hoped that he would be “a successful president for all Americans,” and that she respected and cherished the peaceful transition of power. She told her supporters that they must accept that Mr. Trump would be president. “We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead,” she said.


President Obama, speaking in Washington, also said that he would work to ensure a smooth transition to a Trump administration and that, despite their differences, we are “all rooting for his success.”


Mr. Obama reminded the country that we “are all on the same team” and characterized politics as an “intramural scrimmage.” He said that he was heartened by the conversation that he had with Mr. Trump at 3:30 a.m. and that he hoped Mr. Trump maintains that spirit.


How about Elizabeth Warren, another respected Democrat:

'Let's put aside our differences': Elizabeth Warren extends olive branch to Trump despite her fiery opposition to the new President

'President-Elect Trump promised to rebuild our economy for working people, and I offer to put aside our differences and work with him on that task.


Miley Cyrus took it hard, but rose above her grief to reach out to Trump:

Cyrus posts tearful video begging President-elect Donald Trump to treat people with respect

'But, like Donald Trump so ironically played after his speech, it said, ''You can't always get what you want.'' And happy hippies, we adjust and we accept everyone for who they are. And so Donald Trump, I accept you.

'And this hurts to say, but I even accept you as the President of the United States, and that's fine, that's fine because I think now I want to be a hopeful hippie.

'But please just treat people with love and treat people compassion and treat people with respect and I will do the same for you.'


(Miley: For the first time ever in my eyes, you are a true rock star!)

I started with Ellen because I like her best, but I'm ending with my real heroes and heroines... good simple folk reaching out with love, friendship and good will:

New York commuters take out their election anger by posting hundreds of upbeat messages on post-it notes inside a subway station

The messages varied from: 'Stay positive, positive things will happen' to 'I feel like love lost. I want to make it win again. How do we fix this?'


People power. This is what it's all about. And it doesn't get any better than this.

Anyone else have some positive feel-good stories for the politically hungry and needy???

You go ahead and take whatever you want from that list.

Me? I'm good.

I don't need a thing from any of these "celebrities" or the Obama's or Warren.

But especially nothing from Miley Cyrus.

I think I, almost might, feel what these cry babies call being triggered...

Actually, nope. I'm all good. I don't think you laugh out loud when triggered.

Okay, of course.

But I'm going to find the good and give credit where credit is due for the greater good of us all.... I refuse to be a pawn in the PTB's divide and conquer game.

I appreciate the sentiment, I really do. However, given the complete slander and mind control these folks have been attempting, it really means nothing.

I'm ready to move on and accept our new leadership! Was betting on a lame horse (Stein) from the start anyway so I was primed for disappointment.



I respect everyone's right to cast their vote and know that (almost--I mean let's face it there's some real shady people out there.. just not the majority) everyone did what they thought was best/ had good intentions at heart.

If they think they should change their tune, I'm all for it. Even if their past and future conduct doesn't measure up, the given quotes are positive and dignified.

I mostly lurk around ATS, and have for many years. This is the first day in a long time where I have done nothing but be on the forums all day. Yours is the first real thread that has tried to be positive in a sea of negativity and its a shame this thread only has one flag so far So S+F for you OP. Thanks for the refreshment.

Oh and if I can say anything positive to anyone its this. The world is still turning, the sun will come up tomorrow. Give the man a chance. Turn off the tv and spend some time with your loved ones. Tomorrow isn't promised to anyone, so think of how blessed you are today.

And likewise, I understand and appreciate your sentiment, because there's an awful (and I do mean awful!) lot of folks just trying to stir the pot and cause trouble... and too many folks have bought it hook, line and sinker. It's in our own best interests to separate the wheat from the chaff on all sides and work together to fight the PTB... the Illuminati... NWO... whatever one wants to call it.

Any less and we're just playing into their hands.

There are already some trying to do better: Stop Shaming Trump Supporters

It's worth a read. And worth considering from the opposite perspective. We've done the shaming and mocking and hating and it got us here. If we keep doing what we've been doing, we'll keep getting what we've got.

Thanks for appreciating it -- and them.

I don't disagree with you and certainly not the message they are trying to convey. I just don't believe "them."

It is my opinion that these fools are given way more credit than they are deserving of and are the root cause of what caused this mess. It is what it is for now and I also agree that we should be working together to hold Trump in line.

I will read your article. I've never counted out voice of Democrats, only those that wished to silence mine.

That's nice and all, but talk is cheap right now. Lets see what they have to say a few weeks after President Trump is inaugurated in January. You'll have to excuse me if I doubt their sincerity.

Thank you. I very much appreciate everything you said... and really don't disagree. But I know we can all do better too! And that's in everyone's best interests.

Fair enough... but isn't that pretty much true of Trump as well? He talked a good game, but he has yet to prove himself... But just as Trump deserves the benefit of the doubt until he can walk his talk, we can give these folks the same benefit of the doubt until they can walk their talk, and we can give credit where credit is due in the meantime.

And we can remind ourselves that we're all in this together, for better AND worse, in more ways than one.

this is a nice change. I hope to see more of this. We have at least 4 years to see what happens.
Be Positive and Optimistic about the future. Being mad and upset won't change it a bit, but it will change you.

I'm so glad you think so too -- thank you!

This is so very true. It deserves repeating.

I don't mind Ellen. I haven't heard much from her all election cycle and I can take her at face value.

Obama and Hillary I simply cannot trust.

Miley Cyrus? Was she posting this from Canada? Wasn't she supposed to have moved out of the country by now?

Elizabeth Warren ... we'll see. The problem is that, as Ellen said, we have very different ideas of what constitutes helping the American people. I have a sneaking suspicion that she will only go along as long as she sees things that are exactly what she wants in which case, why did we vote? Maybe I'm wrong, but I've watched the Democrats "extend an olive branch" too many times in the past to think anything else.

Definitely. And soon they will be out of any real power and out of the equation... I hope.

Touche... but she's got the best excuse in the world: Youth. (And an idiot for a father). I give her a whole lot of credit for trying to be a bigger person -- especially given what she has been given to work with.

I think Elizabeth Warren's heart is basically in the right place... I seriously doubt she is at all happy at how this election season played out and the shellacking she's taking right along with the Clinton cabal. But I also believe that she is a product of the establishment so garbage-in-garbage-out. If Trump is the negotiator and deal-maker he is reputed to be, then I don't think this will be a problem. If he can't successfully negotiate with her, then I'm going to wonder if he's a lying liar about his business acumen or a lying liar about something much worse...

I too am somewhat skeptical. But I am also looking forward to a new era of prosperity for all.

In that spirit, I accept the comments made and look forward to the America I lost... the one where everyone had their say and people worked out their problems amicably.

Not the one where people attacked each other for the slightest perceived slight, where people presented arguments based on insults, or where temper tantrums were considered an appropriate responce to hardship.

Thank you for that. Beautifully said.

I look forward to that time too.
