University of Michigan gives Play-Doh and coloring books to students as therapy for the “unspeakable shock” of Trump’s victory

“People are frustrated, people are just really sad and shocked,” said Trey Boynton, the director of multi-ethnic student affairs at the University of Michigan. “A lot of people are feeling like there has been a loss. We talked about grief today and about the loss of hope that this election would solidify the progress that was being made.”

There was a steady flow of students entering Ms. Boynton’s office Wednesday. They spent the day sprawled around the center, playing with Play-Doh and coloring in coloring books, as they sought comfort and distraction.

“There is unspeakable shock at the manifestation of hate and bigotry that is on par with how people felt when Orlando happened, when Charleston happened,” she said. “This feels different from those events, but there is the same sort of heaviness today on campus today. Everyone is very quiet. It looks like grief.”

    If you haven’t noticed by now, people are not to happy over the outcome of the most recent election, Trump versus Clinton.
    Well some how these “children of our future” are going to have to learn to get over it..
    It is so plain to see their parents taught them you MUST win always and if you don’t you take it out on your neighbors, businesses and law enforcement agencies. They must have taught them that it is good to kill police officers by shooting them in the head or in the back, that it is good to riot because they lose something or listen to others and not use common sense.
    Parents need to start taking full responsibility for their children NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY ARE IF THEY ACT LIKE ASSES. But no with the parents and their “busy schedules” “work schedules” or what ever schedules they have.
    With everything getting higher like food, interest rates, mortgages, etc. I can see two people working…but damn it when a child comes on the scene, be it the normal conventional way or by adoption,SOMEONE NEEDS TO STAY HOME AND TEACH THAT CHILD TO BE A HUMAN NOT A FRIGGING ANIMAL.
    But no, mom and dad have to have a brand new car every year, a $250,000, a Scarab boat in the drive way or in storage, credit card debt that would make Obama mad because it is larger than his.
    No matter how you slice the pie these punks need to be made accountable in some way for their actions.
    If you put these kids in jail they will just sit there and probably brag over what they have done and no restitution will be made.
    You cant have them do community service because they probably will not show up any way and then the courts will have to issue a warrant for their arrest therefor costing the tax payers mega bucks.
    You cant even force them to go into the military because there is no longer a draft, besides they would probably go AWOL. So no matter how we go it is a win, win for them and a lose, lose for us.
    BUT, I have a better idea. Make arrangements with airline companies in the form of tax rebates to put these punks on a plane and SHIP THEIR HAPPY ASSES OVER TO OH LETS SAY THE MIDDLE EAST OR RUSSIA AND LET THEM PUT THAT CRAP OVER THERE……wanna bet that their actions would last about as long as a breath of air?
