These knife-edge US election results are enough to make your mind melt – and Twitter users are absolutely having a meltdown.
- Apparently we need to start building a wall, Canada
- Presumably, many Americans are freaking out and crashed the Canadian Immigration website
From wondering whether the election really is rigged, to musing what it all really means for America – here are some of our favourites so far:
So if it is the “rigged” system Trump claims it to be, will he dutifully step down if elected? #electionnight

Scarier than TRUMP being president? The fact that so many Americans agree with him.

The most qualified woman in the world runs for President against the worst man in the world & this is what happens. I’m sad & have no jokes.

All Americans are welcome to Canada, but only on the condition that America take Justin Bieber.

We are very close to electing an openly sexist, racist, self interested meglomaniac to the highest office in our country. It’s a dark day.

Congratulations to the winner of the 2016 presidential election. You’ll be receiving the cleaning bill for America’s pants.

Between Brexit and a Trump presidency with full autonomy, this 80s revival fucking sucks.

Been describing Trump to people as the Nickelback effect.
Example: i’ve never met anyone who likes Nickelback… but they sell out arenas.
