AIBU - I truly believe Trump"s Victory killed Leonard Cohen and is a sign of the end.

SPOILER:BIT PISSED. Ok so Cohen is the anti trump in a way: educated, erudite, self deprecating, a spiritual seeker, witty, deep, just a bloody gentleman . remember them? And he might have died last month, next week, next year.....but whatever made that truly great soul depart- the thing is just too obvious. and yes, he was French Canadian Jewish but he was certainly resident in the US if not a Trumpesque official Citizen for the latter part of his life. Again, bit pissed. over educated mum on her own these days and no-one to share this particular loss! (or ladies, girls,sister whatever you want to be called - i am finding no leonards out there on Match/elite/pof/zoosk etc etc etc -its getting me down}

Wasn't he ill before the election though? He didn't turn up his toes at the news.
Have a cup of coffee, some ibuprofen and get thee to bed smile

He was 82 and not in the best of health.

Take your tinfoil hat off and get some sleep.

He was indeed ill, he wrote a beautiful letter to a friend saying as much.

Leonard Cohen died on Monday. The election was on Tuesday.

It's a small blessing that Leonard never knew that Trump won the election.

Portents and omens? Have you been at the port and lemon, chick? hmm

His writing and his interviews earlier this year every indication he'd made his peace and was ready to go, and it's my fervent hope that he and Marianne are now enjoying tea and oranges that came all the way from China in a heavenly Hydra.

Old ill man dies before election. Trump has done a lot of truely shitty things and is a complete ass but he can in no way be held responsible for the death of Leonard cohen, especially as he died before his victory!

Overeducated or not - wrong and a bit bonkers.

He died on the 7th, for a start.

But even if he died right at the moment they called the election for Trump, there'd be no connection.

As someone else said, take your tin foil hat off, and put the gin down.

He wasn't French Canadian, not everyone in Montreal is French. He was an Anglo-Canadian Jewbu, and to an extent above party politics. He was ready, and I'm sad about it, but everyone has their time.

YES yabu. His death had nothing to do with the elections.

On another note - goddess Where have you been hiding? Haven't seen you for ages. Sorry to derail.
