Celebrities are welcoming president-elect Joe Biden's inauguration today and bidding farewell to president Donald Trump as he exits the White House for good.

While America's allies and enemies have been celebrating Trump's departure, the phrase "he's gone" was trending on Twitter early on Wednesday.

"He is finally gone," wrote Avengers star Mark Ruffalo. "The nightmare has come to its fitful end. A bunch of trump elite criminals pardoned in the shroud of night. The Golden Toilet Presidency is over. A turd is a turd no matter where it lays."

Comedian Chelsea Handler tweeted a delighted picture of herself waving, and said: "Waving goodbye to Trump, Mike Pence, and that entire cabinet of criminals."

Jim Carrey shared a new piece of art depicting Trump's exit featuring the phrase: "Ding dong the witch is dead" along with an illustration of a smashed mango. The mango is a reference to Trump often being nicknamed the "mango Mussolini."
