Apocalypse now...

Probably not, actually. Other presidents elect have startled the horses:

"Murder, robbery, rape, adultery and incest will be openly taught and practised, the air will be rent with the cries of distress, the soil soaked with blood, and the nation black with crimes. Where is the heart that can contemplate such a scene without shiver­ing, with horror?".

And that was in reference to one Jefferson, Thomas. C/O the New England Courant 1800.
