Social media scoop: Donald Trump's win is America's Brexit, Kanye West for 2020 and Canada welcomes all
You can't always get what you want
1. Hey America, remember Brexit?
In case you forgot, the EU referendum didn't go well last June, and it appears Americans were more than welcome to make a similar mistake.
England: Nothing can be more embarrassing than Brexit.— Hillary Trump (@headbangirl) November 9, 2016
America: Hold my beer
Britain's top reactions to Donald Trump becoming president:— Stats Britain (@StatsBritain) November 9, 2016
4 "Well at least they can never say 'Brexit' again"
We Brexited.— Zach Braff (@zachbraff) November 9, 2016
2. Time to go for what you really want
If you've been gunning for that job post and the company of your dreams, it's time to make your mark and send your application. If there's anything Donald Trump taught us, is that you don't really need any prior work experience.
If Donald Trump is elected, he will be the first U.S. president ever with no government or military experience. https://t.co/1fjtdT5xlY— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) November 9, 2016
3. It's Florida's turn to shine
...not. You had one job, Florida.

4. Orange is the new black
The beloved Netflix show involved characters we've come to love: Crazy Eyes, Red and even Piper, when she's not being foolish. But unfortunately, this orange is far from fictional.
I take back what I said about season 3.— Maddie Nixon (@TrickyNixon28) November 9, 2016
THIS is actually the worst season of Orange is the New Black.#election2016
5. Diana Ross comes to the rescue
Has Trump ruined the Rolling Stones classic, You Can't Always Get What You Want? We suggest tuning into this classic from The Land Before Time as you take a very, very long walk.

6. Welcome to the land of Justin Trudeau and maple syrup
Because we definitely can't get enough of both.

7. It's not all about Trump
The Republicans didn't just rally for Trump to win — other implications will soon follow suit.
Donald Trump didn't win today.— Chris Evans Online (@CevansOfficial) November 9, 2016
Self interest won #ElectionNight
While we joked about how Kanye West declared his interest to be POTUS one day, the reality couldn't be very far after Trump's win.
9. Pretty please, with a cherry on top?
No amount of cherries are going to allow Barack Obama to stay in office.

10. Checking into heartbreak hotel
If you truly had no words to describe Trump's win, Rashida Jones and Seth MacFarlane have succinctly described the heartbreak.

At least pot's legal.— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) November 9, 2016
