A new Tumblr page called Trumpgrets is rounding up tweets from disappointed Trump voters as a form of "schadenfreude therapy" — that is, pleasure derived from another person's misfortune.
The Tumblr includes tweets from Trump supporters who feel that the president-elect isn't delivering on his campaign promises. The complaints range from his cabinet choices (too many Washington "insiders") to fears that he will fall back on his promises to build a border wall and put Hillary Clinton behind bars. Although many Clinton supporters doubted Trump would actually deliver on those promises, these realizations seem to come as a surprise for some of his supporters. Here are some of the highlights from the Tumblr.
@realDonaldTrump We voted for a wall. And u promised. And u lied. You are no different than Hillary , u will probably be corrupt too

Sounds like the big sell-out is coming. Oh well. The voters did what we could. If Trump sells out, it's not our fault. https://t.co/tdMpAuDaRI

If you voted for Hillary, does reading the Trumpgrets tweets make you feel better? Or worse?
