IT’S ELECTION DAY, TRUMP MIGHT BE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S., AND WE ARE ALL FLIPPING OUT.

But it’s okay because he’s probably not going to win, thanks to FEMALE VOTERS.

Caught on camera: Donald Trump makes sure his wife Melania votes for him.

107-year-old Donella Wilson, daughter of a slave, casts her vote.

Women are putting “I Voted” stickers on Susan B. Anthony’s grave.

Women in pantsuits:

“As late as 1938, a woman was arrested in Los Angeles for wearing pants in a courtroom, and was jailed for five days. The movie star Katharine Hepburn was frowned upon by Hollywood for wearing blue jeans to the set. In 1969, I was sent home from public school for wearing pants to class. The walk to school was long, the winter was cold and skirts were short. Had I worn a floor-length skirt, I would have been deemed weird, but not in violation of the dress code. But the sight of pants on the female form, it seemed, was transgressively distracting. It earned me my junior-high nickname, ‘Stan the man.’”

Now let’s just try to RELAX. Here’s a zoo that’s streaming red pandas all day, a “suffragette cocktail” (consisting mostly of gin), and my go-to chill radio station.

May goddess have mercy on us all.
