“Sorry, guys. Your candidate lost, and that sucks.”

Regardless of whether Hillary or Donald won last night, I’d be muttering that same phrase to friends and family who supported the losing party. But there’s no crying over it — unless you’re liberal Cornell students who decided to hold a “cry in” after Trump’s victory. Yep, because the Snowflake Party apparently wasn’t snowflakey enough.

From The Cornell Daily Sun:

Over 50 Cornellians gathered on Ho Plaza this afternoon for a cry in to “mourn” in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s shocking presidential victory.

Braving the cold, wind and occasional rain, Cornellians sat in a circle to share stories and console each other, organizers encouraging attendees to gather closer together and “include each other.”

Willard Straight Hall Resource Center employees gave out blankets, tissues and hot chocolate to keep participants warm, while students signed posters with words of encouragement and protest, including “Donald Trump is not my president.”

Zoe Maisel ’18, co-president of Planned Parenthood Generation Action at Cornell, said she and co-president Cassidy Clark ’17 began organizing the cry-in last night for “those of us who have been fighting.”

“We need to just take a break and just cry before … tomorrow we get back up and keep fighting, because people feel really, really powerless,” she said.

Well, if we’re all going to take a moment to collect ourselves then let me take one real quick too.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh god. Oh god. My sides. Oh god. The irony. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. It hurts. Ow ow ow. HAHAHAHA.

Alright, we good.

If you watch The Cornell Daily Sun’s video, the criers that gathered are pretty much what you’d expect, except there is truly an underwhelming amount of tears happening. I went into it hoping for red faces, snot bubbles, loud screaming to the skies asking “Why, Harambe? WHYYYY?!?!” A letdown definitely, but let’s not lose focus. These students realize shit like this is why he won the election, right? He was strong and stuck with his convictions regardless of how controversial it was. These snowflakes would’ve started protesting two words into this article when I called everyone reading “guys.” Sorry, boners.

I love the “he’s not my president” thing too. Trump is, in fact, your president. Sorry again, boners.

As a general rule, you shouldn’t do anything in politics that you can’t do in baseball.

There’s no crying in politics. Don’t worry, Dems. 2020’s Kanye/Tebow ticket is looking pretty strong. Keep fighting that fight.
