Trump or Clinton? Joe Chandler doesn't want to know

Monday, November 21, 2016

A man in Georgia still doesn't know the result of the presidential election, and is doing everything he can to make sure he doesn't find out.

That's right – in Joe Chandler's world, the next president of America could still be either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

It all started when the Brunswick artist found the election race so stressful, he decided not to attend an election night party.

This prompted his accidental art project, he told WAGA-TV: "Having subtracted myself from this political fracas and all of the mayhem of the digital media, I kind of found the centre of the cyclone – it is very peaceful in my bubble of ignorance."

You may wonder how he's managed to steer clear of the news; well, he works from home and has avoided all TV, radio, newspapers and social media that could give the result away.

Not only that, but if ever Chandler leaves the house, he wears headphones and a sign, which says: "I don't know who won and don't want to. Please don't tell me."

Though he does admit, "I am almost ready for somebody to put me out of my misery, but when they do, I have a feeling I might be stepping back into a world of even more misery."
