    And yet it's only the Trumpists who are considered to be nutters when they call for Hillary to be locked up or shot
    Can you differentiate between someone making a joke, and someone being serious?

    I'm guessing not.

    Plus, I didn't even support Hilary either.

    No, because I had no reason to suspect that you were joking. If you write something like this:

    I pick the latter lol.
    It's impossible for someone who doesn't know your political views to know whether the "lol" and the full stop was sarcasm or just internet-speak that emphasises how you're actually being serious. If you want to dazzle us with your humour, do it more obviously.

    How about no? I do what I want, I won't make it more obvious, just for you.

    They have the right to protest as much as they want but the fact is that Donald Trump will become President of the United States since he won the election. If any of the protesters resort to violence, then they should, of course, be arrested.
