Hillary Supporters Burn American Flag, Riot, Threaten to Kill Trump After Losing Election
Death threats against president-elect explode on social media
Rioting hit the streets of Portland and Oakland as Hillary Clinton supporters reacted badly to Donald Trump’s election victory, while death threats against the new president-elect flooded social media.
Windows were broken and cars were set on fire in Oakland as irate protesters lit flares and blocked freeways.
The irony of the riots is that many pro-Clinton media outlets previously circulated the talking point that Trump supporters would be likely to stage violent unrest after they lost the election.
Twitter was also inundated with death threats, with leftists either hoping for or personally expressing their willingness to carry out Trump’s assassination.
