Kanye West's dark fantasy came true: Donald Trump is president-elect.

The rapper was the top trending topic on Twitter on Friday after a rant revealing his support for the incoming president. Trump's administration also announced its pick for the next attorney general -- and Twitter isn't happy about it.

Social Cues is our guide on what's trending across Facebook and Twitter. Here's what people are talking about on social media today:

Kanye: Twitter hates the new Kanye -- the bad mood Kanye, spaz in the news Kanye. Yeezus is in Twitter trouble after a Thursday night rant at his concert in San Jose, California. The rapper told the crowd he didn't vote in the US election, but if he did, he would have "voted for Trump." Just like his fans at the show, users on Twitter collectively booed Kanye's announcement.

Jeff Sessions: The Alabama senator could be the next Attorney General under the Trump administration. Within minutes after the announcement, Twitter already dug into Sessions' history, including racist comments in 1986 that shut down his bid to become a federal judge. Sessions has not accepted the offer yet.

#ReasonsToSkipThanksgiving: Look, sometimes we really don't want to have that conversation with our aunt about why we haven't settled down and started a nice family yet. Turkey and mashed potatoes are great, but are they really worth that endless lecture on why you voted for the wrong person on Election Day? Twitter is offering plenty of reasons why you should skip Thanksgiving this year and just skip straight to Christmas.

Thanksgiving Text: At least there's one reason not to skip Thanksgiving. Wanda Dench, of Arizona, accidentally sent a Thanksgiving invite text to a complete stranger. Instead of ignoring the mistake, the high school senior who received the message accepted the offer and will be at her Thanksgiving dinner next week. The teen posted a screenshot of the invite on Twitter, which has been retweeted more than 600 times. More than 1 million people were talking about the invite on Facebook.

#HappyBirthdayMickey: Twitter is helping celebrate the 88th birthday of Walt Disney's iconic mouse. The world first saw Mickey Mouse in "Steamboat Willie" on November 18, 1928, in New York, as the first animation with synchronized music and sound effects.
