One protestor was struck by a car in the early hours of the morning and was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital according to a police report.

Social media videos of the masses shouting “Not my President,” and other expletive-heavy chants toward the president-elect appeared in news feeds.

Among some of the hashtags used were “notmypresident," "UCSDprotest" and "calexit."

Further north, police report at least 500 people gathered in the streets near UCLA yelling their disapproval of the election results.
