Donald Trump, As Told By "The Office"

There’s no doubt that what’s happening in the United States right now is not exactly a laughing matter. Being so close to our neighbours to the south, it would be ignorant to not be feeling the heat the new President is stirring up. In time of extreme stress, it’s important to keep a hopeful and sarcastic heart, and what better way to do that then watch/rewatch The Office?!

Day 2 wasn’t so bad because it was the Women’s March and, despite political affiliation and beliefs, social media was full of positivity and love.
