Everybody seems to agree that 2016 has been so exhausting, and some of us even believe that 2016 has been the worst year. When the 2016 election results came through, we felt all sorts of emotions: angry, drained but determined, sad, but of course, there are some happy people (Trump’s supporters, obviously) out there.
Even my friends and me, who are non-US citizens, were also drowning in tears and seemingly endless pits of despair.
But the sun still rises, and so does our hope.
Remember this: when following news and political commentary no longer works for you, take a deep breath. Please let these Twitter memes be your consolation.

(Also this is probably the last time we can fully enjoy memes about the Obamas!)
Dear subtle denial, I see you there.

At least we’ve all been able to witness the best bromance, ever.
Obama: Gonna miss you, man
Joe: Can I say it? Just this once?
Obama: *sigh* go ahead

Obama: "Joe, why are you still holding my hand?"
Biden: "I wanna freak Mike Pence out"
Obama: "But why?"
Biden: "Just roll with it" pic.twitter.com/o5KZZ0Ysgz

If Trump can seriously win the PRESIDENCY OF THIS NATION, I don't want to see a job description with "experience required" ever again

Nevertheless, still thinking how a cartoon can predict this:

And the most accurate (and worst) of it all:
Not only did the Simpson predicted Trump winning, they even "predicted" the electoral map and they got it right. pic.twitter.com/2t1DORUjBM
