Between the glut of celebrity deaths and Donald Trump's surprise electoral victory, 2016 was a rough year for a lot of Americans. Yet, for a good chunk of conservatives, 2016 gave them hope. But 2017 has largely been a hot garbage fire for everybody. The White House is in a tailspin, America's standing in the world is slipping, net neutrality is dead, and we're on the brink of war with North Korea. Oh, yeah, and men have been awfulWhich year would you rather forget? 😓

2016 was the year of the dumpster fire. It gave us the Trump presidency. It gave us Clinton's disastrous campaign. (People didn't "Pokémon Go to the polls" like she suggested). It gave us the neverending Russia scandal and the pee tape. Prince, David Bowie, and Muhammad Ali died.

The highlight of the year was November 8. Liberals around the nation got to their election watching parties and instead of celebrating, cried into their whiskey late into the night. The world encountered unseen levels of stress with the introduction of the New York times prediction needle

It was an absolute unqualified mess that left many of us wondering which specific combination of drugs will erase the year from our memory altogether.

A lot of people went into 2017 thinking there's no way things could get worse. But things can always get worse!

2017 was when the slow new days became extinct. Every day it's another story about how the world will end soon. Between North Korea, ISIS, Iran, and random fights the president picks with allies, we live in a constant state of anxiety. 2017 also brought back Nazis, white supremacy and gave us the alt-right. It's hard to keep up with it all, especially when 46 percent of Americans believe it's all fake news anyway.

And let us not forget the list of men who have engaged in a litany of grotesque behaviors has only increased exponentially in the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. 2017 is the year where men began to be aware of the labyrinthine maze of sexual misconduct their female friends and loved ones must constantly navigate. Welcome to hell!
