• Election Day on Tuesday saw a massive voter turnout in the contest for U.S. president between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Rodham Clinton. The election didn't turn out to Hollywood's liking. On Wednesday morning, street vendors were selling Maps to the Stars' Place in Line at Air Canada.
• New York hotel magnate Donald Trump astounded his critics in the media and Hollywood and was elected president of the United States on Tuesday. There had to be silent rejoicing on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Donald Trump's election is the Comedian's Full Employment Act of 2016.
• Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States on Tuesday after one of the most contentious and divisive elections in American history. Once the dust settles, there can be no doubt about one thing. Now that Trump will succeed Obama in the White House, Orange is the New Black.
• Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had the highest negative poll numbers of any rivals for the presidency Tuesday. Many voted for the least bad. Millions of disaffected voters went into Tuesday not seeing it as Election Day, but as the kick-off to the impeachment process, regardless of who wins.
• Barbra Streisand said she'd move to Australia if Trump was elected and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg said she'll move to New Zealand and Rosie O'Donnell to Canada. You can't make it up. Committed liberals are so angry America elected a racist they're moving to the White Dominions.
• Donald Trump triumphed on election night thanks in large part to his colorful but contentious and patriotic personality. It produced either a stirring idea or a consensus outrage every day. It could be the first time that Americans decided to elect a man president just out of morbid curiosity.
• Donald Trump's victory had to wait late Tuesday when he was leading by a slim margin in four states and he needed to carry one to get elected president. Many Americans watching the returns took advantage of this delay. In L.A., people rushed outside to buy tacos before all the taco trucks are gone.
• Donald Trump surprised pollsters with his much stronger than expected showing Tuesday in the Rust Belt states. There was also some confusion. At first it was reported Trump was doing very well with black voters in Western Pennsylvania, but on closer inspection they were coal miners.
• Newt Gingrich was mentioned Monday as the likely appointee for Secretary of State if Donald Trump was to be elected president. These two men view the world the same way. Newt and Donald were last onstage together in Atlanta for the opening of the new theme park, Six Wives Over Georgia.
• Hillary Clinton endured an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation and her misuse of classified e-mails to wage a close battle for president. The FBI Director came down twice in her favor despite the evidence. The day after the election, Bill Cosby asked his judge for Hillary's lawyer.
• California voters went to the polls Tuesday and passed a ballot initiative to make smoking pot legal. The backers of the initiative had no idea the measure was short-sighted. Making smoking pot legal in California wasn't enough because now that Trump's their president, it needs to be mandatory.
• The Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank had to cancel polo matches and riding events and quarantine all the horses inside their stables to keep them safe. It was all due to an outbreak of a mysterious and potentially deadly horse virus. Everyone wonders what the horses had on Hillary.
• Donald Trump's victory Tuesday didn't just anger Democrats it mortified Republicans in the Never Trump Movement who'd refused to endorse him. Here's the safest bet this month. The first member of the Bush family to mention Trump's name at the Thanksgiving table is out of the will.
