Folks should have deep humility in this moment, they shouldn't be doubling-down. We all have things to learn from how Trump happened.

1) I am addressing this to all who voted to defeat Donald Trump and what he represents. We may not have prevailed, but we must not despair.

Don't ask me to unify behind an unrepentant bigot. Can't do it. #ElectionResults

So… Trump or no Trump. Who hurt all these people, what filled all these people with hate. It's not Trump who's voting now this is the US.
