Celebrities, they’re just like us, haunting the bleak purgatory that is the 2020 general election, anxiously waiting for the fate of the next four years to be revealed. Or they’re Kevin Sorbo tweeting conspiracy theories. It’s time for yet another social media recap.

Most of us are feeling pretty nervous!

The stakes are obviously pretty high.

Many of us turn to vice in times of need. Why not?

Some folks try to look on the bright side of things, like “Parks and Recreation” star Nick Offerman.

Or Katy Perry, who dressed up like a giant “I Voted” sticker.

Or like Kanye, who voted for the first time in his life. For himself.

But for others, this whole thing is just disappointing. At the very least, Lili Reinhart stars in the only TV show that is more ridiculous than this season of America. Thank you, “Riverdale,” for everything you give us.

“Hannibal” and “American Gods” showrunner Bryan Fuller is not shy about his feelings right now.

But what about the two men at the center of this nightmare? Well, after President Donald Trump declared himself the winner and demanded we stop counting votes, Joe Biden had to remind him how elections work.

Trump is now claiming voter fraud because, of course, he is.

But as yet another celebrity points out, again, that’s not how elections work.
