We're still healing from the biggest upset in political history, with many shocked citizens unable to wrap their heads around just how Donald Trump managed to win the presidency.

And with so many like-minded people feeling confused and angry over Hillary Clinton's defeat, the Democratic nominee's biggest (fictional) supporter — Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope — has imparted some wisdom on just what to do next.

In an open letter sent out to multiple sites, the optimistic politician played by Amy Poehler said she does not accept the idea Trump's views reflect the people of our country.

The Pawnee native wrote:

"I acknowledge that Donald Trump is the president. I understand, intellectually, that he won the election. But I do not accept that our country has descended into the hatred-swirled slop pile that he lives in. I reject out of hand the notion that we have thrown up our hands and succumbed to racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and crypto-fascism. I do not accept that. I reject that. I fight that. Today, and tomorrow, and every day until the next election, I reject and fight that story."

After comparing Trump to a "giant farting T. Rex" that was voted President of Pawnee Elementary School in a landslide election from her childhood, Leslie reminded citizens that just because a monster is elected president doesn't suddenly make him any less of a monster.

It's crazy to think Amy Poehler and Will Arnett were separated almost as long as they were married!

In docs obtained exclusively by the DailyMail.com, it was revealed Amy and Will finalized their divorce last Friday, four years after they announced their separation in 2012. The couple first tied the knot in 2003.

Considering the two have maintained an amicable relationship since their breakup, we're not sure why the proceedings took so long. Maybe the pair were conspiring to get back together at some point — the actress did split from boyfriend Nick Kroll in 2015, after all!

As for the legal side of the divorce, both parties opted out of spousal support AND child support. The exes will also share joint custody of their two sons Abel and Archie.

Well, while any divorce is super sad, we're glad these two had a nice run. Not to mention the duo are EXCELLENT co-parents which is what matters most.

Here's to hoping Will and Amy find love again — we wish them nothing but the best!

If Leslie Knope were running for president, we have a feeling she'd be dominating the polls right about now.

But it turns out Amy Poehler would much rather see Hillary Clinton run the White House than her fictional Parks and Recreation character!

As Indiana voters head to the polls for their primary election on Tuesday, the Clinton campaign released a video asking the Saturday Night Live alum her thoughts on how a Knope presidency would pan out!

And while many fans would hope Poehler had faith in her perky politician alter ego, the comedian thought that the Pawnee patriot would be in over her head!
