We Just Learned How GITMO Detainees Reacted To Trump’s Win, And Boy Does It Say A LOT

Reactions to President-elect Donald Trump’s historic upset have been mixed, but perhaps the best have come from the prisoners at the infamous Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba.

Throughout his campaign, Trump promised to take a hardline approach to terrorism that included, among other things, keeping Camp Delta open in order to house terror suspects captured abroad. Trump’s plans are pretty much diametrically opposed to the limp-wristed approach the current administration has taken, so it stands to reason that when detainees at GTMO learned of his win, they weren’t too happy about it.

In fact, they were so unhappy that they reportedly asked for heavy medications to help ease their troubled minds. The Washington Free Beacon reported that prisoners begged the guards for tranquilizers and other meds because their anxiety levels went through the roof.

How funny is that?

“He (a prisoner) said that many detainees thought that it was the end of the world and felt terrible and that many detainees asked for tranquilizers, sleeping pills because they were so distraught,” said David Remes, a lawyer for one of the prisoners.

LOL, that’s awesome. Of course, it comes as little surprise that infamous terrorists fear the impending presidency of a man that promised to be harsh on terrorism, especially after eight years of Obama promising to close the detention facility, but it’s still funny to hear nonetheless.

I guess the rest of us can all sleep a little easier knowing that the terrorists intent on destroying our nation are sleeping a little less soundly awaiting their fate under a President Trump, who’s already Making America Great Again and he hasn’t even taken office yet.
