It may be crazy to talk about the Kardashians on a day like today, when the keys to the country have been handed to a ruthless demagogue and the splinter dividing out country seems deeper than ever. But something happened in the reality TV family that could be seen as a glimmer of hope to us all on this dark day.
Confused? Stay with us on this one.
Hours ago, Kylie Jenner posted a video of herself messing around with Snapchat filters as she lay in bed, clearly unbothered by the impending Apocalypse befalling our nation. A few seconds into the clip, a cuddly ball of cuteness jumps into her lap for a snuggle.
That little ball is King Cairo, son of her boyfriend Tyga and Tyga's ex Blac Chyna (who, for her part, may or may not be laid up in a hospital bed delivering Kylie's niece).
After years of backstabbing, controversy and shade on social media, America's most dysfunctional family seems to have found a way to heal, and love one another again:
If that doesn't make you feel optimistic about the future of our country, nothing will.
Speaking of the newest Kardashian, see Chyna's adorable reveal of her baby's sex with BET Breaks, above.
