The Daily Word in I still can't believe Donald Trump is going to be our next president

The Daily Word

Almost a week later and I'm still reeling from the election. Trying to find glimmers of hope wherever I can, like the fact that Trump has said he doesn't oppose same-sex marriage, and that he won't appoint Supreme Court judges with the goal of reversing that ruling. Of course, in the same breath he said that he opposes abortion rights. We've got a lot of work to do in the next four years, y'all.

As the election results rolled in, I felt particularly betrayed by one section of the population: the 52% of voting white women who voted for Trump. Why, despite the at times blatantly misogynistic rhetoric and the fervor to take away women's reproductive rights, do so many white women continue to support the GOP?

We know a lot about Trump's disrespect for women, but one thing we still don't know much about is his foreign policy. And that's really terrifying.

John Oliver dedicated the entire season finale of Last Week Tonight to the election. His overall message "Don't normalize Donald Trump."

For those of us who still believe in facts and still see global climate change as a real issue, be terrified by the fact that 2016 is set to be the warmest year on record.

Here's your only semi-positive story of the day. Tonight, hopeful stargazers will get to see the biggest and brightest supermoon since 1948.
