You should be very scared

Yeah… hi.

Well, congratulations. Week one is behind us and so far the only wars you’ve managed to start are with the press, women, scientists, the environment, Mexico, and now Muslims and Syrian refugees.

As you so often tweet: “Sad!” Sad and beyond crazy.

Since election night and in the weeks since, many of us have been trying to look for something positive in all of this. After all, this might be news to you, but that’s what human beings do – we look for light when we’re surrounded by darkness. When the world throws us lemons, we make lemonade. Well, you get the idea. But this time I’ve only been able to come up with one thing: The crazier you get, the saner the rest of us know we are.

On election night and in the weeks after, the dominant emotion was fear. Even though 65,844,954 million of us voted for Hillary Clinton, many of us had never felt so alone.
