It’s neck and neck between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on election night, and people are panicking. There’s a very real possibility that Trump could actually become president! Celebs like Khloe Kardashian are freaking out, too. Click through to see their worried tweets!
It seemed like a sure thing going into election day on November 8 that Hillary Clinton, 69, would win the presidency. But that turned out not to be the case. Halfway through the night, Donald Trump, 70, gained a a significant lead that put him on par with Hillary in popular votes and delegate count. While the numbers fluctuated, at times Trump was in the lead! It became very apparent that by the end of the night, we could see a Trump presidency.
Needless to say, people are freaked out. This is a significant event in American politics, no matter what happens! We could either have the first female president in United States history, or the first president to never hold political office, or be in the military. This election is a game-changer. Celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Ariana Grande can’t take that second possibility:
I am just absolutely beside myself right now. I can't believe the way this thing has turned. Trying to remain hopeful but geeez louise.

I feel like John King's a doctor trying to tell me I have a very bad prognosis but not freak me out. And W Blitzer's the hospital admin guy.

We feel you! Election night is more intense than the series finale of The Walking Dead, the “Red Wedding” episode of Game of Thrones, and every single disaster that’s happened in 13 seasons on Grey’s Anatomy combined. It’s a nail-biter, for sure. But the next season isn’t more shenanigans with our favorite characters; it’s four years of a new presidency.
A Trump administration could be disastrous for so many people, and that’s what’s got everyone stress sweating. Trump has spewed hate rhetoric for over a year on the campaign trail, and many are worried that some of his far-fetched promises could turn into realities. But will they?
HollywoodLifers, are you freaking out that the presidential race is so close? Tell us in the comments!
