Nancy Pelosi’s Sarcastic Clap During Trump’s State Of The Union Address Is Now An Iconic Meme For The Ages

Nancy Pelosi (or as the president likes to call her: “Nancy”) has been on fire since she became the Speaker of the House, so it should come as no surprise that her sarcastic clapping during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address became an instant meme.

You never know when you might need this:

This is such a useful meme; it even comes in handy when you’re looking for praise simply for doing what you’re supposed to be doing:

Or even during the halftime show?

Or from your mom?

Or from your wasted body after a night of heavy imbibing?

Yes, you can use this meme for anything. Take, for instance, the president’s decision to serve Big Macs at a White House function:

And his decision to meet with the North Korean leader:

Or when he plays golf:

Now go out there, young one, and use this meme for good!

Just remember: You can always do better.
