You may think I’m jumping the gun. Nothing would please me more than the humiliation of being wrong.

My reaction to the three words in the title, in the order I read them:

Bad. Horrifying. Cataclysmic.


#4

It’s not gonna happen, Rob. (I’d love to be proven wrong here, too.)


#5

Dumpster fire.


#6

OK, serious question. What mechanisms are available to get us through the next 4-8 years shy of an actual armed uprising? Impeachment doesn’t seem likely given that the Republicans control both chambers of congress.

Shit.

Put this in the general election bucket; might be useful here too:

1-800-273-8255, if you need someone to talk to.


#9

Funny. I wrote this to a friend via text earlier regarding who is to blame here.

5 - fuckers like jimmy Fallon who normalized trumps behavior.

I really want to cry.


#10

I feel like I need a homicide prevention hotline.

#12

congress and obama revoke presidential powers before voldemort takes office?


#13

America, the rest of the world is pointing and laughing at you.


#14

We are the middle children of history, raised by television to believe that someday we’ll be millionaires and movie stars and rock stars, but we won’t. And we’re just learning this fact. So don’t fuck with us.


#15

It’s ok, the joke will be on all of the world soon.


#16

Though a lot of countries are not exactly in a good position to point and laugh.

In general though: Ho. Ly. Shit.

#18

Joke, this might actually be No Joke.

Eh, not so much laughing as shaking our heads.

In seriousness, I did not see many people looking happy on the way home tonight.
