In what will now be remembered as the year that brought the world both Brexit and President Trump, the US made their decision last night after one of the longest and most disruptive campaigns in political history. Though projected to win by most media outlets, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton did not become the first female president of the United States.

Donald Trump won.

It’s a sentence we’re in shock to find ourselves typing, and like millions around the world, we are still trying to wrap our heads around the election outcome.

Shocked and horrified, many celebs took to Twitter last night to voice their opinion on the monumental election.

The day started out positive, with many, including President Obama, urging people to vote.

Kelly Clarkson made this spot-on throwback American Idol joke.

Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson tried to keep the hope alive.

But as the night continued, actor Cheyenne Jackson felt like someone was playing a terrible joke on him

As the results of the tight race continued trickling in, it became clear that even if Clinton did succeed, it would be in an America that was more negative than people realized.

With the results coming in late into the night and early morning, many celebs went to bed worried about what they would tell their children and themselves in the morning.

Comedian Ricky Gervais tried to keep the mood light ahead of the final tally.

With the results finally in, celebs like Seth MacFarlane, Rashida Jones, Kate Walsh, Rose McGowan, Judd Apatow and Matt McGorry didn’t mince words.

Other celebs tried to remain optimistic. Actor America Ferrera provided an example of some positive change from the election.

Clinton supporters Katy Perry and Mark Ruffalo urged Americans to keep working towards change.

Sarah Silverman reminded her followers of one of history’s darkest times when a leader caused irreparable damage, while also including a glimmer of goodness.

Actor Kal Penn reminded Americans that there are many things worth fighting for to protect.

But this doesn’t mean we’re ready to hear the words ‘President Trump.’
