Well, today’s the day. The electoral college here in the US voted for Donald Trump, officially making him the 45th President of the United States. It’s terrifying. It’s nightmarish. It’s surreal. It would have taken some sort of last-minute Hail Mary pass to be made by suddenly woke electors, but that did not happen. Try to stay strong, loud, and proud for the next four years. And let’s help each other through this. We’re with you.
In the meantime, humor is one of the salves we’ll use to try and heal this horrifying political wound that’s been inflicted on the American people (or that some of them inflicted on themselves). The always hilarious Kate McKinnon reprises her Hillary Clinton impersonation on SNL this weekend. In a spoof of modern-day Christmas classic Love, Actually, she shows up at an elector’s door to charm them into not voting for Trump. Watch below. The sad thing is, when she unveiled the extra long card, every word is true. No, really. I paused and investigated.
Stay strong. You’re not alone.
