Obama Gives Staff Two Weeks to Mourn Following Election

(Before It's News)

President Obama has given his staff at the White House a time frame for their post-election mourning.

Hillary Clinton the inevitable didn’t actually live up to all that hype, so naturally, her fans in the West Wing need some time to “heal” from all that pain.

The Hill reports:

In a conference call with Democratic National Committee (DNC) members, the president heaped praise on Clinton and her historic candidacy and said it’s understandable to mourn an unexpected loss to Donald Trump.

Obama added that Democrats must then dust themselves off to work on rebuilding their fractured party.

“We did not get the results we wanted, but we took a step in shattering a barrier that’s still there,” Obama said. “That doesn’t mean we don’t hurt or was an unexpected loss.”

“I was telling my team you’re allowed to mope for week and a half, maybe two weeks if you really need it,” he continued. “But after that, we gotta brush ourselves off and get back to work.”

From the looks of these recent photographs, though, some staff members may need longer than 14 days to grieve the fact that the glass ceiling won’t be breaking. Obama’s speech in which he congratulated Trump was met with blank looks, downcast faces…

and some tears…

I understand that to Lena Dunham, and those like her, this was a crushing and unexpected defeat. But perhaps, President Obama, his staff, and others on the Left don’t understand the electorate like they thought they did. Plenty of voters who ushered him in to two terms changed sides completely this time around, and voted for Donald Trump, instead.

Either way, for the next two weeks, the White House will be the most exclusive safe space in the country.

Pull it together, kids.

    What did they think…that these staffer jobs were a career within themselves? This would be really sad if it weren’t so pathetic. We of stout heart, sound mind and unlimited confidence in ourselves, send these staffer’s a tsunami of pity. We will pity you eternally since you will never find your way, will be forever burdened by your weaknesses, and will always live in fear of the boogey man. We feel so sorry for you…to think to have nothing to look forward to but a life filled with sorrow. To never have been taught the right tools to go through life, with joy, competence and knowing whatever comes your way you are superior in all your talents to the task. To never know what freedom there is in being able to count on your own abilities and trust in them. …It’s a crying shame.
