After almost 18 months of probably the most controversial presidential campaign in living memory, Donald Trump has emerged as the 45th president of the United States of America.
Just let that sink in for a little bit.
Those who didn’t vote for him have already been frantically planning their escape route to Canada, so much so in fact that their immigration site crashed in the aftermath of the surprise result.
You might think this sudden mass panic may be a bit O.T.T., but this quote from the out-going president Barack Obama could explain why.
The Donald’s campaign has been marred with controversy, which has only been exacerbated by his somewhat scatter-gun approach on Twitter.
Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but HE'S DEMONSTRATED A PENCHANT FOR SEXISM, so inappropriate!

So much so in fact that it was reported that Trump’s staff confiscated his account in the last few days of campaigning, something President Obama mentioned a couple of days ago.
In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control they said we are just going to take away your Twitter. Now, if somebody can’t handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear codes. If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning because SNL made fun of you, then you can’t handle the nuclear codes.
Anyone else excited for the prospect of World War Three? No? Me neither.
