After the world endured the late-night polls, reactions to the news Donald Trump would win the presidency were not taken lightly. People were changing their profile pictures to a solid black image in protest, and hashtags like #ImStillWithHer, #MorningAfter, #NotMyPresident and #PresidentElectTrump served as a hub for opinionated tweets and countless memes.
Timelines on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram were flooded with posts related to Trump’s win. Whether for or against Trump, people expressed their feelings towards the outcome with memes when words were hard to put together.

Despite the outcome of the election, one thing stands true about the last eight years of the Obama administration.
