On Monday, Trump tweeted that he was going to be leaving the Walter Reed Medical Center and that he was “feeling really good.” Better than he did 20 years ago, in fact!
Twitter was pretty dubious about this claim and decided to express its cynicism through the time-honored tradition of pop culture references. Primarily with pictures of unsuspecting fictional characters about to have a very bad time.
Star Wars was a particularly popular choice for, perhaps, obvious reasons.
But the movies that traumatized us as children also made frequent appearances. Had you managed to forget about My Girl and the traumatic death of Thomas via bees?
Of course, overconfident fictional characters weren’t the only comparisons. Other highlights include a rotten onion, the dinosaurs just before the meteorite hit, and baseball losses.
