We’re Here for These Voting in 2016 vs. Voting in 2020 Memes
It's been a long 4 years, y'all.
After 1383 days of anxiety, despair, terror, and fury, Americans finally have the chance to vote Donald Trump out of office. It’s a day many of us thought would never come, but it’s here and we’re here with it. A lot has changed in the past 4 years, which have oscillated between the deep fear and anguish of Trump’s presidency and the determined optimism of the grassroots fight to unseat him.
I mean, 2020 ALONE has easily been 57,693 months long already. But as we wait anxiously for the numbers to roll in, many of us are doom scrolling and reflecting on the fight. And naturally, we are comparing it to our hopes and dreams which were dashed in 2016. Were we ever so young, so full of hope?
Many folks took to Twitter to compare their 2016 selves to their 2020 selves. It is a marked change, even for the most politically unengaged. Many think that a Biden win would be a return to normalcy, but I don’t think it will be that easy. These years have defined our generation and inspired younger generations to be politically active in a whole new way. And even if Biden wins, we still have to contend with the hellscape that Trump created.

We may not know what the future holds, but at least we’ll always have the memes. So drink plenty of water, take a nap, get some fresh air, and let’s do this.
