Let Lin-Manuel Miranda's Words Be Every American's Response To 'You Moving To Canada?'

If he's not leaving, neither are we.

Election Day is officially over, and, as Americans come to terms with the results of this year’s vote, discouragement for one side of the ballot abounds.

While Donald Trump’s supporters are no doubt feeling vindicated after their candidate was severely underestimated by polls across the media landscape, fans of Hillary Clinton are reeling as they watch the possibility of our first female president disappear before their very eyes.

One such fan is “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote earlier tonight, “This year, I’m trying to wrap my head around both outcomes. Scared as y’all. But we’ll get through it. Grateful for friends. For you.” 

Ever the optimist, the Broadway icon remained positive on Twitter ― even in the face of followers assuming he would consider moving to Canada after a Clinton loss.

Let his response to this election be the response every responsible American strives for. With Trump’s win, like he said, there’s more work to do than ever.

In the meantime, here are more of Miranda’s soothing posts to help get you through this week.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
