People are apparently eating Tide Pods, the laundry detergent pods that are for laundry and not eating—on purpose. It has reached meme levels and now celebrity levels: New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski was recently involved in a PSA on the dangers of Tide Pods (if they go in your mouth).
trump became president the same year people started eating tide pods— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 15, 2018
Critics have already swooped into Teigen’s mentions to let her know that people were eating laundry detergent previous to the Trump administration, thank you very much. And laundry-pod consumption has already been parodied. But her theory encouraged others to question reality.
Do people eat tide pods because trump is president? Or is trump president because people are dumb enough to eat tide pods— JD (@jjdtweetz) January 15, 2018
Okay, but is Trump's presidency the result of people stupid enough to eat Tide pods, or are people eating Tide pods in a desperate attempt to escape the Trump presidency? https://t.co/msDozQDC5W— 🇺🇸🇺🇳🇪🇺SPECIALG4Y™🇮🇱🏳️🌈🇺🇸 (@SPECIALG4Y) January 15, 2018
Does Trump eat Tide Pods? Will we find out during Tuesday’s briefing on his physical health?
Please don’t eat Tide Pods, though. If you can’t help yourself, at least make edible ones.
