They only went and did it, didn’t they? In what is the most surreal thing to happen in American politics since The Terminator became The Governor, Donald Trump – DONALD TRUMP! – has been elected President of the United States.
Predictably, given snowboarding’s centre of gravity is in North America and decidedly liberal, our internet feeds have been awash with grieving riders, photographers and assorted industry people. Here are a few of the saddest/wittiest/so-tragic-it’s-funniest reactions:
As a committed environmentalist, big mountain Jeremy was never going to be stoked on the news that a climate-change denier has gained entry to the Oval Office. In fact he cried genuine tears, as he explains in a from-the-heart reaction piece for TGR.
When you fall you get back up. It is what we do. It is what we have always done. Last night was a massive set back on climate change. A step that we do not have time to take. The fate now is in the hands of the Republicans. It is time to get the Republicans on board. Voting Republican should not mean voting against the planet. At last count, there were 11 elected Republicans that believe in man made climate change. We need to grow that number. We need to #depoliticizeclimatechange. We need #Republicans4Climate. ???? @gregvondoersten
