Cher and Madonna were among thousands of furious protesters stomping toward Trump Tower in New York City tonight to protest Donald Trump's shock election as president.
He spoke at the White House where President-elect Trump is expected tomorrow. Even though Hillary Clinton (left) hasn't been charged with a crime, the White House is not ruling out the possibility of her receiving a last-minute pardon from President Obama (right).
The Rose Garden address was his first public comment on the dramatic defeat of the Democratic candidate he had thrown huge time and energy into campaigning for. On Wednesday, during press secretary Josh Earnest's briefing, he was asked whether the president had considered using his executive power in favor of the former secretary of state.
And outside The White House, hundreds of protesters gathered for the second night running before walking on to the new Trump International Hotel. Obama's call for calm came alongside similar statements from both Clinton and Trump.
President Obama said he was rooting for the new president and said the entire American people should. All three combined in a concerted effort to try and bring the nation together after a fractious and bitter election battle.
He gave shout-outs to Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie and Sen.Jeff Sessions, who joined the families of Trump and his running mate, Indiana Gov.
