The 2016 election is finally over. Donald Trump is officially our president-elect. You can take this as you would like, regardless, you cannot argue this was an absolute shock.
While some couldn’t be happier with the polling results, our DJ friends couldn’t be anymore disappointed. American DJs like Carl Craig, Seth Troxler, The Black Madonna, and The Martinez Brothers all expressed their dismay for the polls via Twitter.
Foreign DJs took to social media as well, continuing to bash the new POTUS. DJs from Holland like Joris Voorn, DJs from Italy like Joseph Capriati, and DJs from Spain like Luciano, made it quite clear they are disappointed in the results.
The electronic music community tends to favor the left, so this is quite the scar that will take a long time to heal.
Maddest year ever. People are fucking stupid.

Forget blaming those who voted 3rd party. Be pissed at those who sat it out altogether.
