‘I’m sorry, not tonight,’ Dunham told The Post

Donald Trump scored a stunning and historic upset victory in the presidential election Wednesday morning, once again defying predictions and winning key battleground states to capture the White House.

Giddy supporters at the New York Hilton — who were sullen just hours earlier — erupted in cheers as the GOP nominee closed in on victory, chanting, “President Trump,” “Drain the Swamp,” and “Lock her up!” about Hillary Clinton.

The celebration grew wilder still when TV monitors showed people crying at Clinton’s party at the Jacob Javits Center.

Ed Rollins, who ran Trump’s Great America Super PAC, basked in the victory.

“We won the presidency, the Senate and House. When’s the last time that happened?” Rollins told The Post. “The polls were bad! Trump is going to be president. He’s won this thing. He caught the wave of public discontent and rode it. Washington has to be stunned.”

“I’m feeling great,” Trump ally Rudy Giuliani told The Post as he strode into the party.

“If I can think of an analogous election, it would have to be Andrew Jackson. This is the people revolting against the Republican establishment,” he said.

Still, Clinton’s campaign announced early Wednesday that it would not concede.

But in a tweet to supporters, the former secretary of state seemed resigned to what had to be a heartbreaking upset after working for the former first lady — who had worked for years to become the first female president in the nation’s 240-year history.

“Whatever happens tonight, thank you for everything,” she wrote.

Supporters were equally downbeat.

Lena Dunham, the outspoken Clinton backer and “Girls” actress, was asked to comment about the election results as she left a Clinton VIP party at around 10:45 p.m.
