Let them have the W for once. Let them gloat. Donald Trump is the complete delegitimization of the right. They selected a barely literate President and a vice president who doesn't believe smoking kills and believes the earth is 6,000 years old.
Seriously. Which is worse? Getting voted out of Washington? Or getting laughed out of Washington?

A sore winner is someone who wins and spends far too much time gloating over it, to the point that the rest of the people feel poorly about even participating.
I've been very critical of the sore losers after this election; but I am just critical of the sore winners... perhaps moreso. There is nothing good or productive or righteous about gloating, much less mocking and taunting and insulting the political opposition. It only creates more problems for all of us, and does not even truly serve one's best political interests -- whatever those are. Sadly, there aren't many voices out there on either side calling out the sore winners. I know. I looked. All I found were a couple blogs; but no real leadership.
The Sore Winners Can’t Move On
This in-fighting is not helping any of us! It simply makes us all pawns -- some willing pawns -- in the divide-and-conquer war against us. When we keep doing what we've been doing, we'll keep getting what we've already gotten!!!
Learn from Mitt Romney's suicidal "47%" comment... Learn from Hillary's "irredeemables" and "deplorables" comment... Learn from the last many years of blaming and hating and fighting... Learn from these folks:
Democrats Have No One to Blame but Themselves for Trump
Stop Shaming Trump Supporters
We have to learn to do better. We ALL have to do better.

And as I cited above, people that didn't support Obama reacted horribly too. It happens. People get angry, they react. Our society of instant gratification and placation has just made it worse, on both sides.

probably when people stop crying about how the electoral college should be changed (OH, JUST THIS ONCE PLS WE LOVE HILLARY WAY TOOOOOOO MUCH) they'll stop gloating

Sore Winner? SORE WINNER?!
With the way you liberals rammed everything down our throats for 8 years you deserve everything you get tenfold. You dammed near ruined this nation.
Excuse me? You presume too much. I am not a liberal. Not even an ex-liberal. Never ever registered with the Democrat party (and I've been voting since Carter was prez).
If you choose to lower yourself to that level then you are no better or worse or different than those you attack... if you choose to be a foot soldier for the PTB in their divide-and-conquer battles, that is your choice and your choice alone. And whatever YOU choose to do and be, it says everything about you and nothing about anyone else.
You can also choose to do and be a bigger and better person -- for your own benefit, if nothing else. And, likewise, that would say everything about you and nothing about anyone else. Your choice. Choose wisely.

do you remember the "We're the majority, sit down and shut up" attitude after bush was elected? the attitude that if we weren't with bush on everything, we were the enemy? remember the words "traitor" being thrown around??
or do you suffer from selective memory?
not all those liberals were out there calling you names...
... and heck I've been called some rather nasty names along the way that I most definately didn't deserve.
not all the protestors out there are rioting, most of them are being rather peaceful about it.
and not every trump supporter...
and, just where is our fearless leaders?? Has either clinton or trump come out and told their unruly supporters to knock the crap off!! not really, they've said as little as possible.
...weather or not the time is now, or in our near future... sooner or later the choice might be between the olive branches or civil war.
