News outlets that warned of violent riots from Donald Trump supporters if Hillary Clinton won the White House are now all but lauding the people “protesting” his victory.

The New York Times was reporting on the potential for a literal “revolution” attempt by Trump supporters if Clinton won the White House about a week before the election. “The crowds appeared on edge and quick to lash out,” the story read.
Now the crowds that are actually lashing out are Clinton supporters. “Thousands of people across the country marched, shut down highways, burned effigies and shouted angry slogans on Wednesday night to protest the election of Donald J. Trump as president,” reports The New York Times.
The scenes are something like the cover of The Week published in late October warning of the danger of riots over Clinton loss, if you nix the “Make America Great Again” hat, replace the Trump slogans with signs that read “Fuck Trump,” and insert someone burning the American flag.
