Anyone can think the sky is falling when the “other” guy wins an election. Friends say what we don’t like, we make baseless insults, then we complain about a divided nation.
If you’ve enjoyed the same old, bland, partisan, well-mannered non-progress for years, then a populist like Obama or Trump comes along to rub you the wrong way—well, anyone can go loopy. Some of us grow thick skin before others.
Post-election conniptions are normal. Don’t blame for people having them, don’t join them either. Spread some love. Focus on the problems in the bathroom mirror—not the rear-view mirror.
