Stacey Abrams is not holding back on celebrating what seems likely to be a historic victory for Democrat Joe Biden in her home state of Georgia.
And she's not mincing words about it either.
During an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Monday night, Abrams called President Trump an "orange menace of putrescence," and it's left people simultaneously shocked and erupting into thunderous applause.

Abrams comments came during a conversation about how she felt on Referencing past election days—including her own in 2018, when she narrowly lost a bid for Governor of Georgia—Abrams talked about how this year's was a totally different experience.
"I said this is the first time I've woken up in a November without curling into the fetal position first.
And she left absolutely no question about which part of the election has her most excited:
"There is an orange menace of putrescence that will no longer be able to occupy the White House. There is an incoming president who has moral leadership and character and who actually believes in science and facts."
Even while discussing Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris's historic win, Abrams couldn't help but jokingly veer back to Trump's loss.
"We have seen the change in the face of leadership by adding Kamala Harris, a woman of colour, so that women at large and of colour can see themselves in the highest positions of the land."
"Did I mention Trump is leaving? That's a big win."
Abrams' work to turn out the vote in Georgia, alongside other organizers and activists who relentlessly worked to get as many Georgians registered and to the polls as possible, is being credited with delivering Biden's victory in the state, a feat many thought was impossible.
Georgia has long been one of the "reddest" states in the country. A Democrat has not won its Electoral College votes in a presidential election since 1992, when the state chose Bill Clinton as the winner of its electoral votes during his first run.
So she certainly has reason to celebrate.
And on Twitter, people were loving her no-holds-barred drag of the soon-to-be former President.

Next up for Abrams is tackling Georgia's "redness" when it comes to the Senate.
The state, which has not elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1996, has not one but two Democratic Senate candidates going to a run-off in January.
