There was so much Twitter hate for Florida on election night
Before any votes had been counted, a running theme of election coverage was that without a victory in Florida, Donald Trump had no path to the presidency.
So when Florida remained too close to call late into the night, and then eventually went to Trump with its 29 electoral votes, there was a strong, and sometimes straight-up mean reaction on Twitter, including a running theme about hurricanes. Here are some of the top tweets.
