To all those people who voted for Harambe, Donald Trump just became president and it’s your fault.
In a horrifying twist of fate, the controversial Republican nominee won the U.S. election in a victory that sent a massive shockwave around the world.
The election process is not a joke, but thanks to more than 11,000 people (according to the Twitterati) who voted for a dead gorilla, it just became one.
Almost half a year has gone by since the authorities at Cincinnati zoo shot the silver-backed gorilla, but it appears the stupidity of the American people will live forever.

11,000 votes went towards Harambe. Eleven. Thousand. Votes. Towards a deceased gorilla. This is America people, this is America.— GOATness?? (@KermickLamar) November 9, 2016
The irrational and completely idiotic gesture begs the question exactly what was going on in these people’s head. What was supposed to be the most important bipartisan election of all time was reduced to nothing but a joke.
It has been very clear since the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees were chosen that many people were not happy with the choices. However, the 2016 elections were extremely bipartisan and common sense dictated the lesser of the two evils be chosen — not a dead animal which can never be part of a ballot and the very notion is so far beyond ridiculous, it’s not even funny.
Now, thanks to those people who so negligently wasted their precious votes (of perhaps the most important elections of their lives), the least qualified person has become the commander-in-chief of the world’s most powerful nation.
As Einstein said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe!”
