Donald Trump may have not received a single endorsement from a major newspaper—but who needs the shills in the media elite when you have Facebook?

The social network on Tuesday rolled out a new endorsement feature that allows anyone to officially put their support behind their candidates of choice. 

The feature is found on the “Endorsements” tab, which is located along the left side of a candidate’s page. Click that, and on the right side you’ll find an option to “Endorse” the candidate. Doing so will share the post with the people of your choosing, and you’ll be able to see who of your friends have publicly endorsed the same candidate. (This only happens if you or someone else shares the post to the public. You can change the share settings on the post itself, next to the “cancel” button.)

Of course, this is the internet, so one can only assume this feature will be used to troll us all at any moment.
