Trump Wins?

The electorate of the United States (that's you and me) had a tremendous opportunity to vote for the most unfit character ever. We have made grave errors in many elections and have harmed this country severely. But compared to the damage inflicted by previous incompetents, the danger to life, liberty, property, and happiness has never been greater. All we needed do is select the man who does not pay those contractors who build his hotels and we will have severely threatened to end this 240 year experiment in self-government.

Black Tuesday usually refers to 29 October 1929, when panicked sellers traded nearly 16 million shares on the New York Stock Exchange (four times the normal volume at the time), and the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell -12%. Black Tuesday is often cited as the beginning of the Great Depression.

The attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on 11 September 2001 has become Black Tuesday for younger generation.

Will historians of the future refer to 8 November 2016 as Black Tuesday also?
