Election Night Replay Thread Three: THE NIGHTMARE BEGINS

Virginia too close to call.

Trump leading in Florida.

Trump close in Ohio.

Now comes the moment where you can see dreams shattering into millions of brightly colored shards.

At CNN, they're still counting the Florida vote.

Later, Wolf Blitzer will begin passionately arguing with John King telling him that he must be a retard who can't count because there's no way Hillary could have lost her lead.

Spoiler alert: There is a way.

At MSNBC, Steve Kornheiser leads the clip noting Donald Trump's strength in Northern Florida and rural areas in Virginia. Rachel Maddow immediately says, pretty much, who cares, they're different, they don't count.

Spoiler alert: They might wind up counting.

Then they go to James Carville, who Lawrence O'Donnell notes "looks worried."

CBSNews: At around 1:55:00, they talk about Florida and Virginia.

I couldn't find video of the NYT's election odds meter, but the third chart on this page tracks the meter throughout the night. Somewhere between 9 and 10, Hillary dropped from 80% to 50%, and Trump jumped up from 20% to 50%.

And then... it got worse.

PS, I can't keep my eyes on all of the feeds at once, so please, if you find a good chunk to watch, let us know in the comments which video and which time code to go to!

Update: Fox calls Ohio, North Carolina, and then Florida for Trump.


Update: CNN Is Hot Garbage. Check out the difference between Wolf Blitzer's tone and attitude towards John King's projections when Hillary is ahead or behind.

At 0:7:45 or so here, he's very happy when John King tells him Hillary is ahead in Ohio. (For no-owwww...)

Then, at around 31:00, John King is showing Trump's lead in Florida, and Wolf Blitzer starts screaming "TURN THOSE MACHINES BACK ON!" demanding King show him the Hillary-heavy counties which still have votes to count.
