Republican Analyst Gets 'Emotional Support' Pet Wallaby To Deal With Depression Of Trump

Channel 9's political expert (R) found her own way of dealing with the depression that has taken hold of many conservatives, who are flummoxed with the rise of Donald Trump.

Republican Kelly Maher, (not related to Bill) is despondent over Donald Trump winning the GOP presidential nomination, so, she got herself a pet wallaby.

9NEWS political analyst Kelly Maher speaks for the Republican side and has admittedly struggled with Trump's rise to power in the party. He's now the GOP presidential candidate. She's gone from denial... to getting an emotional support wallaby.

"He's hit the magic number, and you have moved on to the sixth and final stage of grief, denial to anger to bargaining to depression to acceptance to....emotional support wallaby."

"Yes, I think everybody is handling this election cycle a little bit differently, for me - I think I was just really excited about getting a new pet."

"Do you have any concerns about raising a young wallaby in Donald Trump's America?

"Well, you know, it is going to make America great again."
