The Trump presidency is bad. Here’s 175 articles to prove it.

Hey guys. So I’m probably not the only one who’s been feeling a bit useless since November 9. In an attempt to feel like I was doing something (however silly), I’ve been collecting articles of the potentially world-ending or at least deeply disturbing events that have taken place since Trump was elected. There are 175 of them…and I know I missed some. Simply put, it’s becoming a full-time job to gather these articles. But I didn’t want to just put this collection in a proverbial drawer. So…here it is. For your reading pleasure. I call it:
