Five young men who attended a Trump rally “ironically” had their signs taken away from them on Friday night.

Clearly, a vote for Trump is a vote against memes. Sad!

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the five men were allowed to remain on the floor at the Richmond, VA event, but could not carry their homemade signs in with them. “We’re ironically at a Trump rally right now,” said, presumably, the coolest one.

Despite the setback, some memes prevailed at the rally.

Maybe Trump’s people did not want the signs at the rally because Trump has yet to comment on the recent deaths of a number of popular memes. When will you break the silence, Trump? The people need to know your thoughts on this important policy issue.
