"Forrest Trump" Memes & Tweets Mock The President For Another Hilarious Typo
The Twitterverse gave President Donald Trump a hard time on Wednesday, even inventing a new moniker for the commander in chief after his latest goof-up. Tweeting about withholding FEMA funding from California for forest fires, Trump misspelled the word "forest" and added an extra "r." Then the Internet did its thing. These "Forrest Trump" memes and tweets mock the president for his latest typo.
On Wednesday morning, Trump took to his favorite social media site and went on the attack. "Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest (sic) fires that, with proper Forrest (sic) Management, would never happen," Trump tweeted. "Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money."
It didn't take long for the jokes comparing Trump to a lovable movie character to start rolling in. Twitter users started calling the president "Forrest Trump" after the title character in the movie Forrest Gump, using quotes and scenes from the movie to pick fun.
Trump evidently wasn't one to take kindly to the (mostly) friendly ribbing, as he deleted the tweet and reposted with the word "forest" spelled correctly. That didn't make Twitter users lighten up, though, as these tweets and memes show.
1) Trumpified Versions Of Classic Quotes
The originals from the movie are Hollywood classics.
2) Highlights From The Movie
Top moments in history when Forrest was there (in the movie, of course).
3) Box Of Chocolates Or?
This Trumpified version of the quote sounds significantly worse.
4) Forrest & Smokey The Bear
Lots of ways to make jokes with this one.
5) Even The Name Itself Was A Joke
Evidently there were plenty to work with, as this response shows.
6) There Was Not-So-Funny Criticism, Too
Trump received a medical exemption for bone spurs, and didn't have to serve in Vietnam.
8) The Other Trump Fire Jokes
Remember when the president said Finnish people rake their forests and California should try it?
9) Iconic Scenes Turned Jokes
Run after that spell check!
10) This One Burns
The jokes come full circle.
11) Another Chocolate Box Burn
The real Forrest Gump would be nicer.
12) The President Vs. The Character
Some Twitter users clearly have a favorite.
13) Presidents Have Feelings Too
When the president reposted with the correct spelling of the word "forrest," people even gave him a hard time for that.
The jokes are great, but perhaps a modern take on the movie is even more interesting. If a Forrest Gump remake were made today, Tom Hanks' character would surely be showing up down at the border with Mexico. And maybe he'd even have Twitter, too.
