Wednesday watch: Samantha Bee & John Oliver on facing reality of Trump

As we still grieve and process and prepare for action, a double recommendation this week on dealing with the wake of Trump’s victory. Watching these two comedians will be an important coping mechanism for four years of a Trump presidency.

On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver spoke about the importance of treating this election as anything but normal (a stance I couldn’t agree with more).

Samantha Bee looks at the sore winners in the Trump camp, and urges people to send Paul Ryan reports of hate crimes since he doesn’t seem to be taking the problem very seriously.
