Donald Trump won more than 71 million votes, the second-highest total in American history. Nationally, he has more than a 47% share of his vote and has an extraordinary hold over large swathes of this country that has brought a near cult-like devotion among many of his supporters. But he still lost the election to Joe Biden. This defeat makes Trump one of only four incumbents in the modern era not to get another four years. He also has become the first president to lose the popular vote in consecutive US elections.

He refused to accept the result, accusing media outlets that called the race for Joe Biden of colluding with the president-elect in trying to steal the White House. The voters, however, did not. Everyone from celebrities to Internet meme pages has been sharing their reactions to the race both in the streets and online, and many of these thoughts are definitely worthwhile. Here are some of them.

With his triumph, Biden, who turns 78 later this month, fulfilled his decades-long ambition in his third bid for the White House, becoming the oldest person elected president.

The result also provided a historical moment for Biden's running mate, Senator Kamala Harris of California, who will become the first woman to serve as vice president.

On Saturday night, Biden appeared in front of supporters at a drive-in rally in Wilmington, Delaware, and claimed the presidency and called on the country to reunite after what he described as a toxic political interlude.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, could lose more than just the presidency. Twitter has confirmed that if Trump leaves office, he will no longer receive special treatment as a "newsworthy individual".

Twitter's policy around what the company calls newsworthiness protects certain people — such as elected officials with more than 250,000 followers — from having their accounts suspended or banned for rule infractions that would lead average users to severe penalties.

Yeah, Trump’ll probably lock himself in the White House, board up the windows, and use all of his supporters as a human shield.

If anyone hasn't seen Chappelle's SNL appearance, I really recommend it. "I would implore everybody who's celebrating today to remember, it's good to be a humble winner. Remember when I was here four years ago, remember how bad that felt? Remember that half the country right now still feels that way,"

My fantasy: 45* skips Inauguration. President Obama fills in as outgoing president. Joe and Obama walk together through the WH doors. Michele and Jill walk in together arm & arm. They hang President Obama's portrait where it should be, as well as Bush and Clinton. They dine together. President Obama leaves President Biden a letter. Joe and Jill stand in the WH doorway and watch President Obama and First Lady Michele fly away. Aaaah, it's a lovely fantasy.
