I have joked about this outcome happening for many months, but like most other people, I didn’t think he had a fat chance, a ghost of a chance, or a snowball’s chance in hell of winning. So, here are some tips now that Donald Trump is, actually, President…of the United States…he is the President. Oh boy.
Run and hide. I’m not sure if this will directly help, but if you can somehow survive for four years in an underground hideout or hole or something, you should be good.
People who sell wall-making stuff, this one’s for you: don’t sell him your supplies. Problem solved.
Move to Canada? No! Move to Mexico! He wants our jobs back from Mexico, but he can’t get them if we all move down south and immerse ourselves in the Mexican workforce. That will totally foil his plan.
Release your tax returns. This may seem pointless and small, and I’m not sure to whom or where you should release them, but if all 300+ million of us do it, we really have some leverage to work with to get him to do the same. I personally just want to make sure he isn’t spending his money on candy bars or online poker, really.
Stop responding or reacting to any of his tweets. If we don’t give him the attention he desires, much like a young child, the odds of him quitting are much higher.
Love people. Though it’s a strange time, it’s never as bad as it seems. America is the best because we have an opportunity to change things. So do that. Go change things for the better. However that looks. And give him a fair shot to do the same.
