1. Pauline Hanson shockingly sides with Donald Trump when it comes to his view on women.
Pauline Hanson has appeared in a media blitz in the wake of the Trump victory appearing on Sky News and the Nine’s Today Show praising the new president elect.
Ms Hanson told host Karl Stefanovic in a live cross that she believes the women who accused Mr Trump of sexual harassment was displaying “crocodile tears.”
When Stefanovic asked Hason what she thinks of Donald Trump’s views on women she responded by saying, “I watched one of those interviews from one of those women and she was talking about how he touched the side of her breast and she flinched.”
“All I saw was crocodile tears as far as I was concerned,” she continued.
“I think it was a polictical ploy. I think it was a beat up and I didn’t believe that.”
Hanson also commented on Trump’s infamous ‘grab them by the pussy’ remarks saying, “I didn’t condone his remarks that were said in private to someone else on that bus but that’s not unlike what a lot of other men would say.”
“I don’t condone those actions but the fact is he is president of the United States let’s see how he deals with pulling that country back together again. As it is in one hell of a mess.”
On Sky News she said that the people power that voted Trump in were the same voices as she heard in Australia
"They said 'we want our democracy back; we want a voice," Ms Hanson said.
2. Hillary Clinton’s “painful defeat” to Donald Trump.
Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the US election has seen him win all the pivotal swing states he needed to gain his path to the White House.
In a speech that millions never expected to happen, Hillary Clinton took to the stage at 11.30am local time to urge her supporters to accept their new president and concede her “painful defeat”.
“I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans,” she said. “We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”
President Obama also gave a speech where he said he had called Mr Trump “to congratulate him on his victory early this morning” and invited Trump to meet him at the White House on Thursday.
Hillary Clinton has so far won more votes than Donald Trump, with the final ballots left to be counted. The margin is small – with only 0.2 percentage points between the two candidates, but so far Mrs Clinton has collected 59.4 million votes, giving her a 47.7 per cent share, while Mr Trump has 59.2 million votes and a 47.5 per cent share.
It will be the second time that a Democratic leader has won the popular vote but failed to become the president, because the same thing happened to Al Gore in 2000.
But it is the electoral college vote that counts.
As the world reacted with shock the front page of one newspaper reflected the general amazement and distress at the upset, The Daily Telegraph making news in America for its front page.
