Last week, the American people voted to elect Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. The internet is a place of great knowledge and a home to angry, malicious trolls but in recent days, the internet has been swamped with exceedingly creative Obama-Biden memes. The concept is incredible simple yet its impact is both deeply creative and funny at the same time. The Obama-Biden memes are pictures of current President Barak Obama and Vice President Joe Biden side by side with a caption below of an imagined conversation the two are having.
These memes have been around Twitter for a while but have seen a significant resurgence following on from Donald Trump’s election. There is a running theme across several of the photos. Instead of a graceful exit, the internet has imagined Joe Biden plotting pranks against President Elect Donald Trump whilst Barak Obama, the adult, tries to talk Biden down. Others go into Trump’s relationship with Mike Pence while the rest are a bit surreal and absurd. The memes touch on topics such as such as Trump’s Mexican agenda, Donald Trump’s obsession with Obama’s place of birth & the so called ‘birther’ movement and Mike Pence’s stances of abortion & gay and lesbian marriage.
Below are a selection of some of our favourite speculative conversation.
Donald Trump was elected to be the United States’ 45 President in a shocking victory over Hilary Clinton. The celebrity businessman and political novice capitalized on voters’ economic anxieties, took advantage and inflamed racial tensions and swung back from a host of sexual assault allegations during his campaign. Trump needed to win nearly all the competitive swing states, something that he was able to do by winning Florida, Ohio, North Carolina as well as others. His victory will end eight years of Democratic dominance in the White House.
Donald Trump’s election win has lead to demonstrations across the United States with protesters taking to the streets to protest the shock result. Now, at Trump’s request, it is being looked into if he can spend half his time in the White House with the remainder being spent in his New York penthouse apartment. Donald Trump will enter the White House as president on the 20th of January 2017.
