President Donald Trump took to Facebook on Wednesday to deliver a bizarre 46-minute diatribe about how he believed the election was “rigged” and putting forward yet more unsubstantiated claims of fraud.
And while what the president called the “most important speech” of his four years in the White House was met with widespread scepticism and derision, eagle-eyed internet users realised that a moment when Mr Trump held up a white board – with charts about apparently irregular voting – presented them with an opportunity.
Soon after the video ended, Twitter users began sharing memes mocking him, both for the claims made in the address and for his love of using placards that are so easily manipulated.
Others took potshots at Mr Trump more generally, commenting on his electoral defeat and refusal to concede.
One person shared a meme that said “49 days”, a reference to how long Mr Trump has left in the White House until 20 January 2021, when president-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated.
Others memes showed President Trump holding a sign that said “Biden Wins”, “I concede”, “ I’m a LOSER”, “I lost”.
In an apparent reference to the vote recount request in several states including Georgia, and the Trump campaign’s fundraising efforts to pay for them, another meme said “I’m robbing my supporters right now. Shhhh, lol.”
