You know Bill Nye the Science Guy, the man who makes concepts like inertia and phases of matter not only digestible, but actually mildly funny. Now, get ready for Steve Kornacki the Election Guy, the man who makes the intolerable wait for the presidential election results a bit more tolerable.

Kornacki, MSNBC and NBC News's national political correspondent, has been working overtime to relay all the information viewers need to know about the hell storm that is the 2020 election. Seemingly always standing in front of the "big board" (the interactive screen that features live results from states) to interpret those pesky electoral college votes for the uninitiated, Kornacki has maintained a soothing presence over this year's election cycle.

"I think I'll forget to eat a lot during election week," he recently told GQ of his process. "Certainly on election night. I find it kind of slows me down, so I try to be sparing anyway if I'm going to be on TV for long stretches of time. And then if it's like 2016, election night goes into the morning, goes into the next day, and then the next thing I know, it's Wednesday night at 10 o'clock and I'm just going home tired. I can't even tell you what, if anything, I eat in that time."

The self-sacrifice doesn't go unnoticed. With the entire country waiting with bated breath for battleground states like Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Arizona to finish tallying the remaining mail-in ballots, Kornacki's TV presence has been a balm for many.

To say the least, Twitter is grateful … and also kind of thirsty. Below, some of the best tweets about Kornacki and his dutiful election coverage.
