Rudy Giuliani, lifelong Mayor of 9/11 Town who may also be your future Attorney General, was on Fox & Friends this morning to continue his victory lap. And of course the Fox & Friends crew asked him about college students who are coping with Donald Trump's win with cry-ins, Play-Doh and therapy dogs. "The reality is they are a bunch of spoiled crybabies," he said.

Barring the fact that many people were crying yesterday (and are still crying today), because they are women, immigrants, Muslim and/or LGBTQ and know exactly what Trump and his henchman Mike Pence stand for, Giuliani continued, "Most of the kids aren't crying. They're going to class."
Also, Giuliani knows today's youth. "I speak at a lot of college campuses... this might be heartening," he said to the hosts. "We're growing a slightly higher percentage of conservative college students than we used to, because they're rebelling against their professors... The real left-wing loonies on campus are the professors, not the students."
He further said that Trump's message resonated with most college students because many of them are worried about getting jobs.
Giuliani had advice for Trump, if he were talking to these young Americans, “You should find a way to listen and talk about it and say to them, 'Look, you are overdoing it. Take a while and evaluate my presidency a year from now.' My advice to Donald would be to say that. And say, 'Look, calm down, things are not as bad as you think. Give me a year and I think you are going to find you are living in a much better country than you are living in right now. If not, I don't know, you can go cry then.'"
The Wall Street Journal reported that University of Maryland astronomy lecturer Alan Peel canceled a test yesterday, "given that the nation in which you currently reside decided last night to elect a president whose own words have painted him a moral and possibly physical hazard to many of us" and there would be "monumental effort necessary to accept what must be a personally threatening election result."
As we said yesterday, don't despair—get involved.
