Jimmy Kimmel also had a brilliant dig:
Get it? Because Roy Moore has been banned from malls?
He also can’t scream, “Nobody understands me!” and run into the nearest Hot Topic. We almost feel sorry for him.
HAHAHAHAHA just kidding.
Twitter also couldn't help but point out that, while the election ultimately had a good outcome, it's totally bonkers how close the race between a man who molested underage girls and a man who did not molest underage girls was.
That’s 2017 for ya.
Let’s hope this election is the start of a complete overhaul of how we’ve been doing uhhhhh pretty much everything.
Emmy Rossum shed some hopeful tears after Jones' victory was announced:
She also thanked the people of Alabama for taking a stand against violence toward women and children. The people of Alabama showed the entire world that we will no longer stand for that kind of violence from our politicians.
And of course, we can't talk about the election without talking about the importance of the people of color who voted for Doug Jones. Check out this graph:
Ninety-eight percent of the black women who voted cast their votes for Doug Jones. 93 percent of black men who voted did, too. Doug Jones won largely because black men and women showed up to vote.
And they showed up to vote while being systematically oppressed and having their access to the polls obstructed.
It’s pretty perfect that Roy Moore, who recently said that America was better when there was slavery, lost the election in large part because of the people of color who voted against him. Those voters actually made America better.
