In a truly epic fail, Vancouver protesters came out to join the other Hillary defeat parades – someone should remind them that British Columbia… yeah, not in the United States.

Someone has to tell them that there is no way for Hillary to win – mainly because Trump has a lot more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win, but also because Hillary conceded the race.
