Celebs are pouring out their hearts and minds about these 2016 Election results.  From inspirational to funny to tear jerking, we’re ALL going thru a range of emotions.  Check out the reactions inside…

From rappers like Killer Mike, Macklemore and T.I. to influencers like Michael Moore to politicians like Toronto’s Councillor Norm Kelly to all the celebs in between, everybody had something to say about Tuesday’s election results.

 

Killer Mike broke down this election in one of the best ways we’ve seen. He explains why poor white people have always felt they had a leg up on even the “best” black person because, racism. This caused them to rarely ever join with their black brothers and sisters to lobby and advocate for pay wage increases and other benefits of workers. They saw their savior as Trump, even though Trump has proven time and time again to value (and send his business to) the very undocumented and/or foreign workers that those same white workers have an issue with.

He sat down with Ashanti and the co-hosts of “The Real” to break it all down saying:

I think poor white people are mad because the system that promises you something based on that isn’t ever going to give you that…

I knew people were mad, mad enough to do things I hadn’t expected them to do. So I saw people who looked like me and you say they were voting Trump and that scared me….

 

Toronto’s Mayor Norm Kelly and tons of celebs have spoken up:

 

“I didn’t vote for (George W.) Bush, but he was a good, honorable man with whom I had political differences, so I didn’t vote for him. But for our country to be where we are now, who took a guy who — I don’t care what anyone says, I’m sure they have other reasons and maybe good reasons for voting for Donald Trump — but I don’t think anybody can deny this guy is openly and brazenly racist and misogynistic and ethnic-centric, and say, ‘That’s OK with us, we’re going to vote for him anyway.’

“We have just thrown a good part of our population under the bus, and I have problems with thinking that this is where we are as a country. It’s tough on (the team), we noticed it coming in. Everybody was a little quiet, and I thought, ‘Well, maybe the game the other night.’ And so we talked about that, but then Aron Baynes said, ‘I don’t think that’s why everybody’s quiet. It’s last night.’

“It’s just, we have said — and my daughters, the three of them — our society has said, ‘No, we think you should be second-class citizens. We want you to be second-class citizens. And we embrace a guy who is openly misogynistic as our leader.’ I don’t know how we get past that.

I was hoping to tweet this at Trump, but I’m going have to tweet it at all Americans. And this isn’t a joke, it’s actually sad. pic.twitter.com/01Tb6BiwS4

More responses:

 

I am disappointed, shocked and shaken at my core by what has transpired tonight. I gathered around the TV with my family and loved ones, ready to celebrate history being made. My daughter had this little blue dress on. I was ready to pop the Martinelli’s and hold her, watching Hilary Clinton become the first female president of the United States of America. But…It didn’t happen. I had a sick feeling in my gut, riddled with anxiety as the polls started coming in. After hours of a growing pit in my stomach, it was over. I left the TV, grabbed my daughter and took her to bed. But now, as I’m laying next to my her as she sleeps, I remember. Remember what I have control over and what I don’t. I don’t have control over Donald Trump becoming president. That has been decided. But what I do have control over is where I go from here. I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they’re from. I will teach her how important it is to be an advocate for humanity. Not just the portion of humanity that benefits her. I will teach her non violent communication. That in the face of hatred we must love each other even harder. Not give in. Not get discouraged or feel like our progress in the past is void. Keeping fighting for all of us, with an emphasis on those that and have been the most affected by systemic oppression. I will teach her that when she is silent during moments of injustice, she is siding with the oppressor. I will teach her that walls divide people, and by their nature cannot bring us closer. And that just because someone holds the most powerful position in the world, does not make that person right, just or fair. Donald Trump is not raising my daughter. I am. I get to encourage and nurture her to be who she wants to be. Teach her that her voice and actions can change the world. Teach her that she can do anything that a man can do. And one day, even become president of the United States of America. I have work to do. It starts now. And that work is the only thing bringing me peace at the moment

As I woke up today looking and searching for answers on what has happened this song hit it right on the head! If we continue the faith(as hard as it may be to do so) we will BE ALRIGHT!! Parents and leaders of our children please let them know they can still change the world for the better! Don’t lose a bit of faith! They’re our future and we must remain stronger than ever!! Yes we all wanna lace up the boots, put on the hard hats and strike but that’s not the answer. Love, genuine LOVE and FAITH will be the only thing that can get us through this. Minorities and Women in all please know that this isn’t the end, it’s just a very challenging obstacle that we will overcome!! The man above will never put something in our paths that we can handle no matter how difficult it may feel/be! To all the youth out there I PROMISE I’ll continue to lead u guys every single day without no hesitation!! Time to educate and even more mold my children into being the greatest model citizens they can become in life! They will continue the legacy beyond life! Lastly, Even if whos now in office doesn’t, Know that I LOVE YOU’LL!!!

People can vote for Obama and also be attracted to the white supremacist message of Trump. The former doesn’t prove it’s not about racism.

Them: You’ll be fine. Y’all are over-reacting. Trump is the president we deserve.

Austin Dash (Stacey Dash’s son), who actually seemingly is not a Trump supporter, is still fed up with all the talk:
