President-Elect Donald Trump: 'This Political Stuff Is Tough'

Early Wednesday morning, Donald Trump took the stage at the New York Hilton Hotel to give a rambling, possibly unprepared speech accepting his election as President of the United States. He was joined by his running mate Mike Pence and their respective family members, and RNC chairman Reince Priebus made a brief appearance onstage. You can watch his speech—which included the declaration, “This political stuff is nasty, and it’s tough,”—above.

I give him three months before he goes, “Fuck this. I am outta here.” This is a man who has been handed everything to him on a silver platter his entire life. He didn’t have to roll up his sleeves and work his knuckles to the bone for anything. And now he is going to take what is arguably the most stressful and difficult job on the planet? He is a seventy year old man who used to be pampered. He is going to hate it. Just loathe it. Especially when he starts having to deal with world leaders. This is a job that ages a person twenty years in eight years.

No, he’s going to step down or die from a stress induced heart attack within his first year.

He has no idea, none, for what he is in for.
