A note from the editor: Obviously the outcome of the United States presidential election is big news today. We’ll allow you to discuss it in the comments of today’s MMD if you want. However, if things start to get nasty, we won’t hesitate to delete comments and/or ban people. Remember that we’re all Americans and we’re all in this together, even if we disagree on fundamental issues. I thought Mark Cuban summed it up pretty well on Twitter:
We all need to give President-Elect Trump a chance. Support the good. Lobby against what we disagree on. No one is bigger than us all— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) November 9, 2016
