We have gotten through so much together in just the past few months: Melania’s body double, Trump getting COVID-19 then consuming fetal cells like a milkshake to heal, trying to save democracy by buying stamps from the USPS, a fly on Mike Pence’s head, and more Trump memes than we can reasonably process, no matter how funny they are. And yet, there are still hours of uncertainty ahead. It’s a lot.
