This week has been very emotional and upsetting for a lot of people. With the presidential election ending yesterday, we now have our new president. Donald Trump has been elected America's 45th president to the disappointment of many people. Our country is even more divided now than it's ever been. The role of the media throughout this election has been so major in the sense that all our information about this election has come through some form of media such as the news, radio, newspaper, social media, etc. It seems that mass media has been the biggest source to keep the entire world updated with the election.

It is absolutely incredible how powerful media is and how quickly it spreads the word. Due to the disagreement and disappointment with Donald Trump being elected, massive swarms of protests have taken over cities across the country. There are protests in California, Oregon, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and others. This all seems to be a nightmare to a lot of people who were almost certain Hillary Clinton would be our next president. I have seen news reports of people being physically ill because of this election. Fear and terror has been bestowed upon this nation.

Nobody took Donald Trump seriously when he first announced he would be running for president. Everybody saw him as a joke and figured he wouldn't get very far in this election. You would think that after all the vulgar, sexist, racist, and aggressive comments he has made that he would be long gone. But no, America chose to elect a president who has belittled and degraded just about everyone who is not White. How can someone represent an entire country when he has attacked the majority of it? This election has been very upsetting, but the battle is still not over.
