I’m trying to cheer up my immediate family, but I am not sure how. It isn’t that they won’t recover, but that I am not at all surprised at the result. It’s like I’m trying to cheer them up with cynicism. I keep seeing how shocked and surprised and disappointed that the Democrats are, especially white ones, but they need to be unsurprised and angry at their party and leaders that couldn’t even beat fucking (literally) Donald Trump. It’s time to clean house.
