Trump Had An Epic Meltdown Over Border Wall Funding—And The Memes Are Glorious ????

President Trump met with incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in the Oval Office this past Tuesday. The meeting started out somewhat cordial but ultimately turned into the equivalent of a reality television show — all in front of the press.

There was screaming, signature phrases being tossed around, and requisite shade thrown by all parties. The clash was over President Trump’s proposed border wall. and he threatened to shut down the government if he did not secure funding for it from Congress.

A video can be seen below.

Senator Schumer went after the President.

What was most bizarre about the exchange is that President Trump took full responsibility for a potential government shutdown. In doing so, he handed the Democrats the rhetorical high ground on a silver platter.

Of course, memes were born. Some wondered what Vice President Pence was thinking.

Others were here for Pelosi and Schumer.

Label memes made a triumphant return.

And many couldn’t believe President Trump’s temper tantrum.

When speaking to the press afterward, Schumer and Pelosi were quick to point out that Republicans currently control all branches of government, so government funding is their responsibility.

Perhaps this is a preview of the President’s strategy once the Democrats officially take over the house in January.
