The U.S. Senate voted to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him Wednesday afternoon following a brief trial.

Whether they're critics or supporters, there were plenty of reactions to the acquittal.

"National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" star Randy Quaid shared his excitement on Twitter, sharing a photo of himself pointing at the news headline reading: "Trump acquitted." The photo is accompanied by several thumbs-up emojis.

On the other hand, there were those disappointed by the news.

By a final vote of 52-48 against conviction on the abuse of power charge and 53-47 against conviction on the obstruction charge, the Senate fell far short of the two-thirds, 67-vote supermajority needed to convict and remove the president. Swing-vote Republican senators -- including Lisa Murkowski of AlaskaSusan Collins of Maine, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee -- voted to acquit on both counts.
