People are tweeting hilarious images of how they’ve changed since Election Day 2016

Election Day 2016 started out full of hope and promise for many Americans but quickly dissolved into an ongoing nightmare — an emotional roller coaster of a year that some voters are depicting on Twitter with before-and-after pictures.

In the political year since last Election Day, America has been in a constant whirlwind of ridiculous and embarrassing news that includes everything from “Apprentice”-style firings at the White House to a garbage dump full of Russian meddling accusations, along with regular missteps by President Trump (#NeverForget the G7 golf cart ride). Americans have understandably changed from who they were last year.

So, recalling their Election Day 2016 selves — young, fresh-faced voters full of promise and excitement — versus their haggard, weary and weathered Election Day 2017 selves, people are taking to Twitter to show how they’ve (hilariously) changed in a series of posts that feature photos they believe represent “Me on Election Day 2016” and “Me on Election Day 2017.”

Many of the before-and-after photos show actors and actresses, such as Sigourney Weaver, in cheerful images matched with post-apocalyptic scenes.
