Fox News contributor Lisa Marie Boothe has some astute words for those immobilized by fear and loathing because President-elect Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election:

Boothe's words came in response to reports that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has suggested offering therapy to municipal workers who are deeply troubled by the election results.
Fox News reports:
According to the New York Post, Mayor Bill de Blasio is creating a citywide safe space for New York City’s municipal workers and offering them psychotherapy sessions to deal with the results of the presidential election.
Another Fox contributor, Dr. Keith Ablow, says that de Blasio's suggestion is simply an extension of the "participation trophy" mentality of progressives:
The mayor is suggesting to citizens of New York City that they should consider whether the democratic process has injured them to such an extent that they need to limp into therapists’ offices and, kind of, cry it out. Like coddled children. He seems to believe that he and other progressive “leaders” like him should be the only ones with personal power — the only real adults.
Isn’t that why progressives would tax citizens even more, if they could — because individuals don’t really know how to use their own money? Isn’t that why they would disarm citizens, if he could — because Americans don’t need to be able to defend themselves and decide when it is necessary? Isn’t that why many of them would reverse the election of Donald Trump, if they could — because they believe that Americans who voted differently than they did must not have known what they were doing?
Trump received less than 20 percent of votes in New York City, and won only the borough of Staten Island.
