As House Republicans postponed their highly anticipated, highly contested healthcare vote that was slated for tonight, President Donald Trump hopped into the front seat of a giant truck and honked its horn, remaining completely stationary.

The American Health Care Act, which only 17 percent of Americans support, may be stalled out but the #TrumpTruck meme is very much alive (and not necessarily well) on Twitter.
Just after the president’s antics were caught live on C-SPAN, the Twittersphere reacted accordingly.

The president of the United States, age 70, even got to keep a special souvenir.

Where is the Trump Truck going? Unlike the Trump Train, does it have the potential to go off the rails? Over the edge of a cliff? Into the ocean? Is it carrying MAGA merchandise or merely the collective weight of our country’s healthcare future on the seven-year anniversary of Obamacare.?
Cue one very longing and distressed “beep beep.”
