The Best Trump Congress Speech Memes & Tweets Prove America Is Pretty Creative
Hard as it still is to believe, Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and Tuesday night marked the first time he fulfilled one of the most important presidential duties — updating Congress on how the country's doing. Of course, the Internet had a grand old time mocking pretty much everything Trump said, resulting in some FDA-certified Grade A memes for you to enjoy. Trump's Address to Congress memes and tweets are the best of the best, the one small silver lining of the storm cloud that has been his presidency so far.
The lead-up to Trump's first speech before Congress was extremely anxiety-inducing, because it was completely impossible to predict which version of Trump's public persona would show up to the event. Setting has rarely made a difference in predicting Trump's past demeanor — such as his last, disastrous press conference in the East Room of the White House, which ended in him shouting down a Jewish reporter. It seems that Trump figured out that you catch more flies with honey, and brought the decorum due to Congress. Ultimately, though, the version of Trump was pretty irrelevant to the meme output, because there were plenty anti-Trump posts either way. Here are a few of the best for your enjoyment.
But also, stay woke.
Memes are always fun, but spending too much time making fun of Trump can be dangerous. With humor comes familiarity, and with familiarity comes comfort. The world cannot afford to get comfortable with Trump, so get right back to the resistance now.
