Stop What You Are Doing And Watch Stephen Colbert Discuss The Election

“In the face of something that might strike you as horrible, I think laughter is the best medicine.”

Awesome video by Stephen Colbert. Colbert pretty much sums up how a lot of Americans are feeling right now. They are scared and don’t know what to think. Sometimes, you really do just need a laugh to settle you down and take a step back from everything.

Alarming stuff Colbert brought up, especially how 55% of Democrats are afraid of the Republican party and 49% of Republicans are afraid of the Democratic party. Wait, what? Why the hell are we afraid of each other? Shouldn’t both sides be working together? That is the scariest part to me. Just because one crazy Republican says an outlandish thing does not mean Democrats should be afraid of the whole Republican party. The same goes for the one crazy Democrat that frightens the Republican party. One bad apple should not ruin the bunch. Every single person is an American and last time I checked, we’re all on the same side. This idea of being afraid of each other is a bunch of bullsh*t and I pray this election changes that idea.

The election is over, people. It’s over! Enough with the political hot takes on Facebook. Enough with the bashing of both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. This gets us absolutely nowhere as a country. In fact, it sets us back. Did I support Donald Trump in the election? No. Did I support Hillary Clinton in the election? No. Does that mean I’m going to leave America because Trump won? Hell no. This is the time to come together as a nation. You’re upset with Donald Trump? Ok, do something about it. Talk to your local politicians and get involved in your community. Don’t put your life on hold because you don’t like the new president. Make it better.

The biggest problem I have with Donald Trump is that he wants to “Make America Great Again.” Hold up, when has America not been great? America is the greatest country in the world. There’s no need to make something great again if it’s already great. It should be “America Is Already Great So Lets Just Keep Making It Better.” Trump said a lot, and I mean A LOT, of controversial things. So if Trump does every crazy thing he said he was going to do, then we have a problem, but that’s not going to happen because the American people won’t let him do that. Call me naive, but I trust that Americans will do the right thing when we need it the most.

Like it or not, Donald Trump is the next president of the United States of America. Don’t worry, that scares me too, but I am not jumping ship. I will support the president until he gives me a reason not to, plain and simple. Whether you rooted for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton does not matter anymore. It’s time to root for America.
