Check Out This Fake News Site Where Hillary Clinton Is President

I'm not sure if I'm more impressed with the dedication or saddened by the amount of time that someone put into this when they could have otherwise worked to make society better, but here it is: a satirical news website reporting stories from an alternate reality where Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump.

Yup. It's HillaryBeatTrump.org.

Sample headlines include "Confused by fake news, Redditers [sic]think Trump is president," "Mike Pence’s latest hobby: Gardening with Grindr matches," and "Approval ratings for President Clinton hit 89 percent."

While the site's creators are unknown, they appear to be completely serious in their belief that Hillary Clinton should have won the election. The site's about page bids itself as a "response" to a "Constitutional crisis." (Note: there is no Constitutional crisis.) They also call Clinton the "true president."

It's been over a month since Trump was inaugurated, and people are still refusing to get a grip on reality. It'd be funny if it weren't so sad.

Take a deep breath, everyone.
