Laugh about it: Comedians offer the election stress relief you need

Feeling down in the dumps about the election results? Not a fan of hearing the words “President” and “Trump” together?

Your favorite comedians are here to help get you through the next four years — via social media, that is.

Seth MacFarlane teased a “Family Guy” elections special, a “Parks and Rec” star is offering free hugs and others are just giving us a good laugh.

Take a look at what these comedians had to say about the election results and follow them to lift your spirits.

Maybe it was all a dream. Seth MacFarlane, who live-tweeted on Tuesday night while the results rolled in, was hopeful, tweeting that Trump's win was just a nightmare and that maybe, just maybe, he'd wake up to find Patrick Duffy in the shower. (A much-appreciated reference to the "it was all a dream" season of '80s drama "Dallas.")

And, MacFarlane wrapped a compliment from a fan within a retort about state-control of artistic expression. Before the results were called, MacFarlane responded to a tweet asking him to make a "Family Guy" episode celebrating Trump's success if he were to win.

"That's probably what the law will say," MacFarlane responded.

Knowing everyone in America was left on the edge of their seats during the nail-biting election, Conan O'Brien just wanted to make sure whoever won would be able to pick up the nation's dry-cleaning tab. With an injection of, um, poop humor.

"Congratulations to the winner of the 2016 presidential election. You'll be receiving the cleaning bill for America's pants," he tweeted on Tuesday.

Chelsea Handler's tweet was mic-drop worthy to the more than 36,000 people who retweeted it.

"When you're worried that your wife copied off of Michelle again," she tweeted alongside a photo of Trump sneaking a peek at Melania's ballot.

Jean-Ralphio is offering free hugs today -- err, "Parks and Recreation" actor Ben Schwartz is offering virtual ones, at least. His post-election-night tweet left us feeling warm and fuzzy. "(Hug)," he tweeted. (Credit: Getty Images / Mike Windle)
