"Me On Election Day 2016 vs. Me On Election Day 2017" Are Taking Over The Internet
It's hard to believe that it's only been a year since Election Day 2016. For a lot of people, it's felt like much, much longer than that. Before Donald Trump was elected into office on Nov. 8, 2016, many of us were expecting to celebrate our first female president. Now, after a year under the Trump administration, some of us are, well, a little depleted. We're a little bit harder. More pessimistic. We've seen some things.
So, on Tuesday, when people came out for the local elections in Virginia, New Jersey, Utah, and New York City, they found a way to express their grief through a new meme. Constituents voted for their next governor in Virginia and New Jersey, for the next mayor in New York City, and to fill a vacant congressional seat in Utah.
The "Me on Election Day 2016 vs. Me on Election Day 2017" meme is equal parts painfully accurate and hilarious. Here, we rounded up the the 31 best visualizations of how we feel today.
