Leslie Knope pens a letter to young women after Trump win: 'We screwed this up'
"We elected a giant farting T. rex who does not like you, or care about you."

While journalists like Megyn Kelly are urging citizens to give President-elect Donald Trump a chance, and comedians like Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert are calling for solidarity and respect, one TV favorite has come back with a big ol’ KNOPE.

“I acknowledge that Donald Trump is the president,” writes Parks and Recreation’s Leslie Knope (or, rather, a member of the show’s writing staff) in an open letter for Vox. “I understand, intellectually, that he won the election. But I do not accept that our country has descended into the hatred-swirled slop pile that he lives in. I reject out of hand the notion that we have thrown up our hands and succumbed to racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and crypto-fascism … Today, and tomorrow, and every day until the next election, I reject and fight that story.”
