Reactions from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue


white_house_election_night.jpgWe’ve mentioned what happened half way around the world from the White House. So what happened at, uh, the White House itself? I’m happy to tell you — pandemonium. I wandered by the Obama family’s next place of residence yesterday around 1 am and walked right into a joyous mob shouting, crying, and carrying Obama signs. The favorite chant of the night? “Nah nah nah nah, hey hey hey, gooooodbye.”

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
