One of the ways I’ve been coping with the anxiety the 2016 presidential election caused is by turning to comedy.

The Pope did not appear to be very enthusiastic, to say the least, and as New York Magazine wonderfully put it “while we can’t be certain the photographer wasn’t standing behind the camera saying “everyone whose last name is Trump, please smile….everybody else look miserable as heck,” that’s exactly the result”.
