Shortly before Donald Trump was officially heralded as America's president-elect early Wednesday morning, CBC News' Peter Mansbridge was interviewing a very important political expert: Mark Critch.

"What the hell did you do, Mansbridge?" Critch said. "I go away for two hours, I come back and Trump is going to be president."
Critch joked that the long-time anchor and veteran CBC reporter Terry Milewski were retiring because they knew Trump would be elected.
"I'm terrified... and I blame you, Mansbridge," he said. "You and Milewski, cause he screwed off too, so I think you guys were in the know."

Critch then proceeded to chug a pint of beer, mirroring what most Canadians were/are doing after the official results came in.
It's possibly one of the only light-hearted moments during Tuesday and Wednesday's coverage, and judging from the election's outcome, we're going to need a whole lot more.
