2016 Election Drinking Game

Feeling a little woozy on this election day? This drinking game can help you pace yourself… maybe.

  1. Every time a lawsuit is announced or threatened by a Trump campaign spokesperson– one shot
  2. Every time a news channel uses the “breaking news” banner to announce every state’s results– a beer
  3. Every time someone starts making plans to move to Canada– 2 shots
  4. Every time Trump tweets about winning before the numbers come in– sip a mixed beverage (it’s a long night)
  5. Every time you see a TV commercial campaign advertisement after the polls close– take a swig out of a bottle of wine
  6. Every time someone says they didn’t vote but still complains about the election– add them to a mental list…. for later
  7. Every time Trump says the election was rigged– carefully eye a bottle of rubbing alcohol before realizing it’s not worth it
  8. Every time someone brings up Clinton’s emails– stare longingly into the abyss and dream of better days
  9. Every time someone brings up Bill Clinton– go streaking, it’s not like it’ll be weirder than anything else that has happened in this election
  10. Every time someone says Bernie was screwed by the Democrats– screw it, go get the rubbing alcohol
  11. Every time a TV news channel says a race is “too early to call” but still makes a prediction– cross over into the spirit world and make a deal with the dead presidents to save America
