Comedian/masturbator Louis C.K. has emerged from his Internet-free home to discuss his life, his work, and how they're both affected by the election. C.K. had previously come out with his personal opinion that "Donald Trump is Hitler," and when asked about his opinion on the Democratic candidates, he described the turbulent election with the most clever analogy:

The American government is a very volatile, dangerous mechanism, and Hillary has the most experience with it. It’s like if you were on a plane and you wanted to choose a pilot. You have one person, Hillary, who says, “Here’s my license. Here’s all the thousands of flights that I’ve flown. Here’s planes I’ve flown in really difficult situations. I’ve had some good flights and some bad flights, but I’ve been flying for a very long time, and I know exactly how this plane works.” Then you’ve got Bernie, who says, “Everyone should get a ride right to their house with this plane.” “Well, how are you going to do that?” “I just think we should. It’s only fair that everyone gets to use the plane equally.” And then Trump says, “I’m going to fly so well. You’re not going to believe how good I’m going to fly this plane, and by the way, Hillary never flew a plane in her life.” “She did, and we have pictures.” “No, she never did it.” It’s insane.

There's no doubt that Hillary is objectively qualified and Trump has no political experience. It all comes down to how smoothly—and in what direction—you think the plane should go.

No matter who you vote for, and whichever direction the country plunges into politically, there's one source of solace that's guaranteed:
