In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s loss in the Nov. 8 election, Democrats are in a collective meltdown, blaming everybody and everything instead of Hillary and themselves.
Some, like actress Olivia Wilde, indulge in empty gestures like cutting her hair so she wouldn’t look like Melania Trump, as if anyone would actually mistake her for the new First Lady.
Others, like students at Michigan Law School, comfort themselves with coloring sheets, play dough, Legos and bubbles.
Others, like Hollyweird screenwriter Eirene Donohue, break down into crying fits even weeks after the election.
Others are doing passive-aggressive Christmas this year by giving “revenge Christmas gifts” to families and friends who’d voted for Trump — cash donation to liberal causes and organizations, in lieu of actual gifts.
Others, like gay attorney Daniel Goldstein, scream at Ivanka Trump and get thrown off Jetblue.
Still others go into a homicidal rage, like Justin Barkley who shot and killed a UPS driver named William Schumacher in a Walmart parking lot, thinking him to be Donald Trump. (H/t FOTM‘s Longknife 21)
Now comes news that disappointed Hillary supporters are medicating themselves with food, lots of food.
Deena Shanker reports for Bloomberg, Dec. 23, 2016:
The morning after the 2016 vote, Hillary Clinton supporters woke up in a state of shock and grief. The unthinkable had happened, and almost nobody saw it coming.
So they did what Americans do best: They ate. And ate. And ate.
Lose It!, a calorie counting app that helps users track their daily food intake, says there’s always a Tuesday to Wednesday drop-off of active users, as dieters lose motivation they had earlier in the week…. But something funny happened the Wednesday after Election Day. The drop-off rate was four times as much as usual.
“There was definitely a post-election slump,” said Charles Teague, chief executive officer of Lose It!. The company doesn’t record its users’ political leanings, but it says 75.8 percent are female and 77 percent are aged from 18 to 44—demographics that swung to Clinton.
Meanwhile, orders for desserts such as cheesecake, pie, and ice cream were up 72 percent on Caviar, a meal-ordering app operating in 15 urban markets, including Boston, New York, Dallas, and Seattle. Clinton also carried cities with 50,000 residents or more with a strong margin, even in deep-red Texas.
Here’s to all you precious snowflakes!
