Patton Oswalt Sums Up Election Night In One Undeniable Tweet
Like most of us, comedian Patton Oswalt spent much of election night panicking about the presidential election results. By the time the outcome became clear, the entire world shuddered in disbelief, fear, and uncertainty. But it was in one particular Twitter post that Oswalt summed up what he realized about his own country on November 8.
“What I’ve learned so far tonight: America is WAAAAAAAAY more sexist than it is racist. And it’s pretty fucking racist,” Oswalt tweeted.
Sadly, Oswalt has a point. After taking a step in the right direction eight years ago by electing its first black president, America has dialed back time by electing a man who not only admired by the nation’s white supremacists, but was recorded boasting about grabbing women “by the p***y” because he’s famous.
So sad, America. So sad.
