Donald Trump is a walking, talking meme. From ‘covfefe’, to ‘bigly’, to whatever other dumb thing he said this morning, there’s always something happening for the internet to take the piss out of. While pretty much everyone agrees that he shouldn’t be in charge of a Twitter account – let alone a country – I have a new suggestion for the list of things that should be taken off of Trump. Photoshop.
You might have seen the news that Greta Thunberg has been announced as Time Magazine’s person of the year, which is great! Trump of course, found a way to make it all about him by telling her to deal with anger and “chill” by watching a movie with a friend for some reason. In classic Greta style, she updated her Twitter bio to read “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”
Instead of leaving it there, Trump’s official reelection campaign Twitter tweeted… this.
I’m going to brush over how insecure you’d have to be to do this in the first place, and the fact that Trump was person of the year in 2016. Why photoshop his head on to Greta? For what reason?
It’s only been a matter of days since we say Trump’s head photoshopped on to Thanos, in an amazing display of missing the point.
Then there was the Rocky Balboa tweet.
Aaaaaand the hero dog tweet.
And those are only the ones that have happened over the last few weeks.
I really hope this isn’t a new trend for Trump and his team, because I’m not sure how much more of it I can take. I’m calling it now, though – we’ll see a picture of Trump’s head photoshopped onto Obama within the next six months, and the internet will lose its shit.
