The results of the presidential election shocked the world, and many of us are struggling to recover. If you're still feeling dead inside post-election, take comfort in the fact that Ellen DeGeneres has made it her mission to cheer you up again.
During yesterday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the comedian tackled the topic on everyone's minds with her trademark humor and charm.
"Obviously a lot of people were disappointed by the results [of the election]," Ellen said. "My job is to be hopeful and to make everybody feel good and I am going to keep doing that for as long as I can."
"At times like this, it's important to remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said: 'It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness,'" she continued later. "And I think that is a beautiful thing and I believe you should also remember what Kanye West once said: 'Blocka, blocka, blocka, blocka, pour a little champagne, cranberry vodka.'"
To drive home her point, Ellen showed the audience a video of a baby iguana. For those thinking that baby animals are cute but not necessarily inspiring, think again. Check out Ellen's monologue in its entirety below and it'll all make sense.
