Scott Baio, who (according to IMDB) hasn't worked since 2014, has given himself a starring role in his own 16-minute long Facebook Live video. An instant classic, in which he whines about people having opinions about President-elect Donald Trump that don't align with his own. He targets MSNBC hosts, Lena Dunham, and others who rightfully fear that we (or maybe Russia?) may have elected a KKK-backed misogynist to our highest office.

I promise you something. if you want to watch the best television that's on television right now, watch MSNBC. You'll have a ball. It's amazing. The crying, the literal crying, the anger, the rage. Their heads are gonna explode. By becoming President Donald Trump gives up his life. He gives up the life that he knew, whatever freedoms that he had, of going to a store, going to buy something, going to play golf... His wife Melania gives up her freedom. The life that she knew. And more importantly than any of that, they have a boy whose I think 10 years old what do you think happens to his life. What do you think Mr. Trump had to give up in thinking about what his son had to give up? The little boy is 10 years old, his life is changed forever. Maybe it's tough, I don't know.

The fear in the country... do you think in November of 2008, MSNBC hosts, do you think conservatives and Republicans were afraid? Do you think we were concerned there was no border and illegals were allowed to come here whenever they felt like it? We were scared, but you know what, we sucked it up. We took it on the chin. We ate it. We didn't cry. We didn't have cry-ins. We didn't need puppies to hold. We didn't need a safety pin on a shirt. We're conservatives and we took it on the chin. And you can't take it. Are you kidding me? You lost, we won. Be a man, or be a woman, and suck it up. You babies in college? Grow up.

As an accompaniment, Baio's wife Renee Sloan is heard in the background chanting, "Lock her up!" when Hillary Clinton's name comes up. Check out the classy couple right here. [h/t THR]
