Start your day with TPM.

On Tuesday night, dad-in-chief President Obama released a video through BuzzFeed News advising his viewers a little perspective and critical distance for the 2016 election.

“Let’s face it: This has been an exhausting, stressful, and sometimes downright weird election for all of us,” Obama said in the video.

“But here’s what I want everybody to know. While we’ve certainly seen some new things this time around, what isn’t new is that our democracy has always been rowdy and raucous. We’ve been through tough and divisive elections before, and we’ve always come out stronger for it,” Obama said.

“And remember: no matter what happens, the sun will rise in the morning and America will still be the greatest nation on earth.”
