A video of a disheveled President Donald Trump arriving at the White House on Friday evening has become a meme online.

The footage, which shows Trump exiting the Marine One helicopter hours after his underwhelming campaign rally in Tulsa, is being combined with a wide-range of somber music.

In just one example, the end title music from Marvel’s The Incredible Hulk was tied together with the tie-less Trump.

Not long after, countless other versions began rolling in. The iconic Charlie Brown theme was another seemingly perfect fit.

The theme from Alfred Hitchcock’s groundbreaking film Psycho was also thrown into the mix.

Although the president’s campaign alleged that over 1 million people were looking to obtain tickets for the rally, the event ended up far from sold out.

A second event planned for outside the venue was even canceled after the expected overflow crowd never materialized.

The large interest in the rally but abysmal showing has been linked to activism from TikTok users and K-pop fans. The internet duo reportedly registered hundreds of thousands of tickets without any intention of showing up.

The president also highlighted closeup shots of the rally on Twitter Friday in an apparent attempt to hide the plethora of empty seats. Twitter users were quick to show the bigger picture.
