Trump’s threat to Iran’s president is already a dank meme

From song lyrics, to ‘Rickrolling,’ people couldn’t help but make fun of Trump.

Late Sunday night President Donald Trump sent out an all-caps threat on Twitter to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in response to remarks he made over the weekend.

In the tweet, Trump addressed the Iranian president and promised “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before” should Iran continue to “threaten” the United States.

Naturally, Twitter thought the president’s all-caps threat was the perfect opportunity to make fun of him by addressing their own all-caps messages to Rouhani.

The tweets were in all-caps and mimicked Trump’s “To Iranian President Rouhani:” format.

You had the classic “Nigerian Prince” email-scheme:
