Not only has the US presidential elections 2016 been like none other, but the kind of social media wave that followed the result announcing Republican Donald Trump as president-elect has been quite unique as well. From protests saying ‘he’s not our president’, to the immediate trending of the hashtag Michelle2020, indicating that the US populace would like the current First Lady to be their next president, there have been enough indication towards the inability of many to accept Trump as their Commander in Chief. And all this before he’s even assumed office.
Well, the drive towards a recount in many swing states and the appeal to the electoral college to somehow get Hillary Clinton in, aside, one of the best outcomes of this year’s presidential elections has been the onslaught of Barack Obama-Joe Biden memes that has rocked the Internet. Thousands of brilliant memes, one better than the other, dominated the week after the election results were announced and some even continue to do so. But the ‘meme factory’ got an amazing fillip when on December 6, US vice-president Biden surprised everyone on Capitol Hill (and the world), when he suggested that he may run for President in 2020.
“Yeah I am. I am going to run in 2020,” he said, adding, “What the hell man, anyway.” He later apparently said he wouldn’t commit to it, nevertheless, the suggestion was enough to get the meme mill on Twitter up and running on full speed. Soon, the hashtag Biden2020 started trending, with a whole new set of memes and jokes taking over the micro-blogging site.
Here are some of our favourites.
