Here’s the Seth Meyers Late Night Election Response You Need to Start Your Day

Things got dicey yesterday after the election results came in—the best thing President Obama could find to say was that the solar system would not literally grind to a halt—but in the interest of keeping ourselves moving, here’s Seth Meyers’ reaction to the news on Late Night. Frankly, I’m more of a Fallon viewer myself, but we’ve firmly established this year that he’s not exactly the one to turn to for pithy political commentary.

No, I’m still not over that. In addition to the requisite jokes, Meyers does have an uplifting message for those disheartened that we came so close to having the first woman ever to become president of the United States, as well as for our future in general. Go ahead and use this as a bit of a palate cleanser if you’re still having trouble getting started this morning.
