2020 has truly been an unprecedented year, and that now includes the 46th's election cycle. With votes continuing to be counted three days after the nation's turn out to the polls, t's been an emotional roller coaster of a week.

And some people just aren't having it.

Take Cardi B, a popular rapper most recently noted for "WAP," for example after she took to social media on Election night, showing off her extreme coping mechanisms as more and more states turned Red.

Early in the election result news coverage, many states turned Red right away, which was not a good sign to a Blue-leaning Cardi B.

In response, she took to Instagram and shared a quick video with the caption:

"How these elections got me watching these states turn red."

In the now-viral video, Cardi B drew the attention of every other stressed-out citizen as she smoked three cigarettes all at once.

In the past, Cardi B has been a vocal advocate for progressive change, and she has openly criticized President Donald Trump's place in the White House.

Her response to Biden's running for Office emphasized her personal preference for being well-informed, especially regarding the pandemic.

"I just want Trump out. His mouth gets us in trouble so much."
"I don't want someone to lie to me and tell me that it's OK not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be OK. I want a president to tell me what the steps are for us to get better."

Inevitably seeing so many states go Red was hard on the artist, and many of Cardi B's followers felt her reaction to the results, viewing her video as a whole Election Day "mood."

Others at the time tried to comfort the rapper, pointing out there was still a long road to victory left.

Since posting this video, the majority of states have submitted their totals, but with how close the race appears to be, the fact that the election cycle is nearly complete isn't providing the people much comfort.

With major swing states like Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania continuing to count their votes indefinitely, everyone is feeling the pressure.

Though we may not all cope the same way, it's pretty safe to say we've all felt a little like Cardi B this week.
