Hillary Clinton’s Election Night Confetti Meets a Sad Demise
She didn’t break the glass ceiling. And all the confetti hauled in didn’t get to touch it, either.
Clinton and her campaign widely expected victory, but the American people had other ideas. So, instead of a party for the ages, Clinton’s attempt to become the first female president went up in smoke. What never went up, though, was the confetti brought into New York’s Jacob Javits Convention Center, where the Democratic party nominee set up shop on the night of the election.
In the word of our president-elect, “Sad.”

It’s the equivalent of champagne being taken out of the locker room right before a team loses in the championship. Or when championship shirts for said team wind up in some poor South American country because, let’s be honest, there’s really no market for “Cleveland Indians 2016 World Series Champs” paraphernalia.
