Trump’s ‘I call my own shots’ tweet spurs hilarious new meme

This morning, as he does most mornings, our president took to Twitter to address a few news stories that he has issues with. 

As with these things, it’s not always clear what Donald Trump was referring to, but many speculated it was a New York Times report that claimed Trump accidentally promoted Steve Bannon to the National Security Council, when the president neglected to review an executive order he signed, which Bannon snuck language into regarding his new role. 

Possibly true? Maybe, but that’s not important right now. 

What is the point is that the internet instantly fell in love with the president’s phrasing. 

“I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data,” he proclaimed. 

The fuck does that even mean? 

Twitter had some wonderful, delightful ideas, taking the quote and adding GIFs that demonstrated complete and utter idiocy, as well as bears masturbating.  

Honestly? I hope this presidency never ends.
