As the world prepared to witness President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address on Tuesday night, it was hard to know what to expect. Would it be one classic word salad full of nothing but wilted carrot shreds? Would he attempt to drink water like a big boy and fail miserably? Or would he do what we've so rarely seen of him in the past — read prepared remarks off of a teleprompter and seem kinda normal? If you can't bear to watch the train wreck yourself, these funny tweets about Trump's State of Union will clue you in to what went down, without the unpleasant side effect of having to actually listen to him talk.
Before the president even left the White House on Tuesday, Twitter users were speculating about the kind of night we were all in for, and thankfully, most did it with a dose of humor, because let's be honest, if we're not laughing, we'll probably start crying, am I right? The jokes ran the gamut from charmingly absurd to disturbingly too close to home (wait, what if Putin really does show up, though?). Just pretend this is all one big reboot of The Office, with Trump as Michael Scott, and it'll be OK.
Remember way back in 2015, when the idea of a failed steak salesman and disgraced reality star becoming president of the United States was so laughable, it was fodder for sketch comedy? Oh, wait, it still is. Thank goodness we have Alec Baldwin to help us through this.
They're gonna do it again, aren't they? Someone is going to refer to this mess as "presidential" and try to convince everyone that Trump isn't just your average Twitter troll anymore. How long until he proves them wrong?
Yes, please, keep saying this. Shout it from the rooftops. I really don't know if I'll be able to handle seeing those headlines in the morning.
Agreed. Moving on.
The fact that Pence has Resting Cry Face really sells this. How on earth did a man who doesn't trust himself to be alone with women get involved with someone who... Never mind. Not going there.
"Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!" Trump tweeted on Sunday. So, yes, Ira. He absolutely does think that.
Ed was wrong. It only took about 10 minutes.
One popular subject on Twitter during the president's speech was his wife, Melania Trump. The first lady arrived at the State of the Union wearing an all white pantsuit, which many took to mean as a sign of resistance. 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton famously wore a white pantsuit during multiple occasions — including her Democratic nomination, the final presidential debate, and famously at Trump's inauguration.
In addition to Clinton's attire, women at Trump's first address to Congress wore white in honor of the suffragettes in the early 20th century. It was a visual many can't forget, so naturally Twitter took note and had some fun with the first lady possibly taking a note (one year later) from the many Democratic women who wore white in 2017.
She didn't even ride there with him! In fact, they haven't been seen together in a month. Blink if you need help, girl.
If I had a million dollars... Wait, that's still much less than she can get for going along with his nonsense. Forget it.
Perfection. Ya think it was intentional both times, or nah?
We can only hope.
