Yesterday America experience yet another sad day as Donald Trump was elected as our next president. Many were not happy as others (his supporters) jump for joy. I think that we can all agree that the changes coming our way will be extreme. Even happy go lucky Stephen Colbert was bent out of shape by the results of the election.

Colbert spoke to viewers of his Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This Shit saying,

“I’m from a big family. My mother was born two days before women could vote the first time in a presidential election… I was thinking this was going to be the time that she got what she wanted. She told me at age 92, shortly before she died, ‘Oh, I think I would vote for Hillary this time, it’s time.’ She only voted for one Democrat in her entire life and that was Kennedy.”

Colbert says instead of turning to violence, we have to make conscious decisions and embrace our similarities. He tells everyone to keep their flag up.

“Whether your side won or lost, we don’t have to do this shit for awhile. So keep your American flag up, but you can take off your American flag hat. You can put away your ‘I voted’ stickers and you can get back to your life.”

He went on to say,

“In the face of something that might strike you as horrible, I think laughter is the best medicine. You cannot laugh and be afraid at the same time, and the devil cannot stand mockery.”
