2016 Election Moments That Made Us Want to Die Inside

The 2016 election has been interesting, to say the least. The excitement we all felt as candidates slowly announced their candidacy has dwindled down to absolute dread. We are left with two unpopular major party candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Some have chosen the route of a third-party candidate like Gary Johnson or Evan McMullin, while some are casting their votes for the Sweet Meteor of Death.

This cycle has been especially disheartening to many millennials – particularly those for whom this was their first time voting for president. Despite how this election has made you feel, take heart in knowing that it is almost over!

Before you do that, let’s look back on all the pleasant moments that came with the 2016 Presidential Election. This is a list of all the “deplorable” moments that made you want to cry and then probably want to cry some more.
