21 Brilliant Memes About The US Presidential Election

Because after Donald Trump's win, we all need a giggle...

The results of the US presidential election are in… and Donald Trump is the new leader of the free world.

Yep. The guy who used to host The Apprentice beat Hillary Clinton in an insanely tense race for the White House last night.

Whether you’re sad, confused or frustrated, we can all rest in the comfort that the whole of the internet feels pretty much exactly the same way.

Even before the polling stations opened, memes started flooding Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And now the reactions are coming in thick and fast.

If you fancy a laugh (or a cry), take a look at some of the best ones…
