A Survival Guide To A Trump Apocalypse... I Mean, Administration.

RE: BUZZFEED LIFESTYLE WRITER. An 11-step Zombieland-inspired guideline to get you through the Trump Years alive. Don't know how to prepare or where to even start? Here are some tips, from one marginalized American to another.

1. Up your cardio. / Via

Because you’ll need to get a running start to jump over the wall that Trump is punishing “Mexican illegals” by making us pay for it.

2. Double tap. When in doubt, don’t get stingy with your bullets.

Use their beliefs against them. Pro-Tip: They are pro-gun. Just kidding… Sort of. Power doesn't live behind the barrel of a gun. True power resides in our voice and finds a home in the movement. When you think the issue is dead, persist. We cannot afford to let anything slide or let anything go.

3. Beware of bathrooms...

Tenor / Via

And all the shit that comes out of Kelly Anne, Sean Spicer, and last, but certainly not least, Tomi Lahren’s mouths.

4. Buckle up.

Big Brother / Via

Remain calm. These people are unrelenting. Not to mention, if your health plummets, you won't have access to healthcare (seeing as how they lack a replacement plan and all). They may even try to throw alternative facts at you… Scratch that… They WILL throw alternative facts at you. Dodge and deflect them for they are lethal. Fight back with the truth. Major Key Alert: Truth is to Conservatives what garlic is to vampires.

5. Travel light.

Giphy / Via

While trying to defeat the Neo-Nazis, I mean the alt-right, extra baggage may hold you back. That, or ICE may stop and frisk you along the way, so long story short – don’t walk with valuables. It's not like you can take it with you into Trump's Hell anyway.

6. Don’t be a hero.

Giphy / Via

Unless you're Batman. Then you can be a hero. Otherwise... Getting caught up in being a hero distracts from the movement at hand: survival. No need to compete for praise, we need to remain united in the name of justice.

7. Limber up.

Tenor / Via

Destiny's Child has been preparing you for this moment. Get your squad and prepare to not only march like hell, but fight like hell.

8. When in doubt, always know your way out.

Classic Gaming / Via

Be vigilant in both your protest and in your arguments. They'll try to twist your words, and probably your arm, but don't let them back you into a corner. Hell, don't even go near a corner. Build a wall against their attacks. (See what I mean about using their arguments to your advantage?)

9. Buddy system.

Giphy / Via

Stick up for each other; he wants to divide us. So you know what to do...

10. Check the backseat.

Giphy / Via

Learn from the past (and every cheesy scary movie). Study the greats and innovate. When you know better, you do better.

11. Enjoy the little things.

Giphy / Via

It’s the only way to stay sane. Seriously. Sometimes, you have to disconnect… But not for too long. Things are moving fast and Don The Con is pretty trigger-happy. Pun forced.
