As celebrities continue to react to Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton to be the next president of the United States, Lin-Manuel Miranda is offering some words of wisdom (and West Wing GIFs) in the aftermath of election night.

Late Tuesday, as results were coming in, Miranda tweeted, “This year, I’m trying to wrap my head around both outcomes. Scared as y’all. But we’ll get through it. Grateful for friends. For you.”

In subsequent tweets, he promised to drop more of the anticipated Hamilton Mixtape this week, and added, “Go through all stages tonight. You are allowed to feel however you like. Take stock of your heart. See you tomorrow. We are all still here.”

On Wednesday morning, he picked back up with a GIF of President Bartlet from The West Wing and a reference to his smash hit musical (“The sun is up and the world still spins. Let’s go”) and a message from his mother that “this too shall pass.”
