In the last four hours, 4chan, the “darkest corner of the web,” called the election for Hillary Clinton and prepared to the world’s tiniest violins. That is, before they changed their tunes after polls closed in Indiana and Florida, causing the message board to declare a nationwide “Trump Landslide.”

Posts calling the election for Clinton started rolling in around 5pm ET, ranging anywhere from angry to sorrowful for the anticipated loss of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

4chan users began changing their diagnoses, however, once the first rounds of polls closed, and Indiana and Florida began reporting positively for Trump.

4chan users grew from grim to ambitious.

Who’s to say if 4chan even legitimately believed that Clinton had won the election, or if they were just trolling to troll? At least a few of these sweet Pepes can sleep soundly tonight knowing that they “did their part” and voted for Trump, unlike their handful of acquaintances who somehow forgot to register.
