People are losing their minds over Donald Trump’s stunning election victory. No, seriously, some people are melting down.
Trump isn’t even in the White House yet, but many are already operating under the assumption that he is going to destroy the country and strip away Americans' civil rights.
Here are some of the biggest freakouts so far:
1. “I sold all stocks...”
Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald apparently sold all of his stocks in his kids' education accounts in “preparation for an unpredictable Trump presidency.” He urged others to do the same.
Eichenwald also apparently sold ALL of his stocks, you know, “just in case.”
It might have seemed like a smart move when the market took a brief dip during the election, but that didn't last. The Dow opened at a record high on Thursday and the S&P 500 was flirting with its own record as the market reacted to the prospect of a Trump administration.
2. “So much work ahead to mend, heal, and restore the U in USA...” lol jk
YouTuber Laci Green was hopeful that America could come together, regardless of who won the election, and continue the march toward progress...for like three hours.
That “healing” sure didn't last long.
She also posted an anti-Trump YouTube video, and she had plenty to say about the “unspeakable darkness” behind Trump's movement.
3. Trump came in like a wrecking ball...
Miley Cyrus didn't handle the news of Trump's election victory over Hillary Clinton very well. There will be tears.

She did, however, say that she “accepted” Trump as the next president.
4. “The View” melts down
The morning after the election, Whoopi Goldberg referred to Donald Trump as “this fool” and was already talking impeachment. The Donald hasn't even been sworn in yet.
5. The guy who needs to work on his chant-leading skills
Repeat after him:
"I have a 15-year-old sister!
And I don't want her!
To grow up!
Afraid of our leaders!"
“No justice, no peace” is way catchier.
At the #UTProtest I was given an opportunity to speak. So I did.

6. Chelsea Handler wants to move to Spain
Chelsea Handler broke down in tears on her Netflix talk show while talking about Hillary Clinton's election defeat. She's seriously devastated and wants to move to Spain.
“I want to move to Spain. I really, really want to move to Spain right now,” she said. “Everyone in my office is like, 'you have a responsibility, you have a voice and you need to use it and you have to be here.'”
I guess that means she's not really moving to Spain.
7. American University students: “F*** white America!”
American University students absolutely lost it on Wednesday after Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, burning flags and screaming “f*** white America.”
Even one Hillary voter, sophomore Lindsay Petelinkar, called the protest “shocking” and didn't want to have anything to do with it.
8. Cher can't even
Cher, who threatened to “leave the planet” if Trump was elected, opined America would never be the same again.
Lucky for her, whether she knows it or not, America is still the greatest country in the world, regardless of election results.
