On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a campaign-style rally in Phoenix, Arizona, that was quintessentially Trump: inspiring to his base, enraging to his opponents, inscrutable to many, and memeable for all.
At one point, Trump took pains to single out the leftist organization many on the right believe to be as bad, if not worse, than neo-Nazi demonstrators: “antifa.”
Or, as Trump calls it, ANNTEEEFAHH!!
“They’ve got clubs and they’ve got everything,” he said of the far-left anti-fascist group accused of instigating violence against white supremacists and other members of the “alt-right.” “ANTEEFAH.”
Most everyone on Twitter thought it sounded just like the Champs infamous “Tequila Song.”
hey can someone put this in that 'tequila' song or DO I HAVE TO THINK OF EVERYTHING AROUND HERE https://t.co/Ak9jbbAUEl— josh androsky (@ShutUpAndrosky) August 23, 2017
Thus, a meme was born.
