Trump Retweets “Best Eclipse Ever” Meme

ABC News reports:

President Donald Trump today retweeted a meme that showed a picture of his gradually blocking out an image of former President Obama with the caption “The Best Eclipse Ever.” The meme was originally tweeted at Trump by a Twitter user who identifies himself as Jerry Travone, whose bio describes him as “a YouTube Actor and Political Junkie” and a “Proud Trump supporter and pushback against liberalism.” Trump retweeted the meme at 8:33 a.m. It came after Trump posted two tweets criticizing leaders of his own party: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Majority Leader Paul Ryan.

  • Thorn Spike

    What is he, in middle school?

    • Jonathan Smith

      why promote the kindergΓ€rtner?

    • Gerry Fisher

      Developmentally? Yes. Perhaps a bit younger. He’s like the 5th grade boy who punches the girl in the shoulder because he thinks she’s cute.

  • Jonathan Smith

    didn’t he get that back ass wards, like everything else he thinks he understands?

  • marshlc

    Good. The busier he stays with this nonsense, the less harm he does. Now if someone would only buy him a colouring book and some lego, the country could maybe go a whole day without damage.

    • Jonathan Smith

      Maybe.
      probably not.

  • Jamie Brewer

    That asshole is supposed to be the “leader of the free world.” The orange turd makes me so sad and ashamed for the USA. The light has gone out…

    • RoFaWh

      Speculation: President Liar has never understood that he’s President of the entire country, not just the minority who voted for him.

      He doesn’t want to understand that, of course, because he would then have to admit that more people voted for Hilary than for him, and his withered testicles wouldn’t be able to stand the comparison.

      • -M-

        Doesn’t seem that speculative to me.

  • S B

    He knows the eclipse lasted two minutes, right? And the sun came back bright as ever?

    • CanuckDon

      Just some brief darkness….soon it’ll be over. And whatever you do, don’t look at it without protection!

      • Jeffg166

        The Orange glare.

    • Todd20036

      He also knows that Obama isn’t the president, and hasn’t been for 7 months.
      Funny how he has nothing else to show for it.

      • bzrd

        hate and revenge and hate and revenge, eating out his pitiful, ugly insides

        • prixator

          and a heaping helping of envy, too.

    • Relativicus

      No, he probably does not know that.

    • another_steve

      The racist undertones of that pictorial meme are breathtaking. Notice that Obama’s image (even his tie) is flat and faded. Not the face of a beautiful black man but the face of a man with some bland and indiscriminate “not-white” face.

      Enter Trump’s bright and colorful face replacing it.

      Just breathtaking.

      • kaydenpat

        It’s such a pipe dream because Trump knows that he has nothing on President Obama. But yeah, they picked a black and white photo of President Obama to contrast against Trump’s colorful smiling photo. Obama still looks better, imho.

      • MAGABoy

        “[Obama] a beautiful black man”? LMAO You people are insane in the brain.

        https://youtu.be/RijB8wnJCN0

        • another_steve

          Oy vey… a racist troll.

          So disappointing.

          • MAGABoy

            The truth is racists… to your great disappointment.

          • another_steve

            I’m impressed that you can spell.

            Most racist trolls can’t.

          • MAGABoy

            Despite what you may believe, I bear no ill will towards anyone. But Obama is NOT beautiful and most blacks aren’t beautiful. Lets get real #racerealism

          • RoFaWh

            You need to open your eyes.

          • MAGABoy

            Says the PC blind.

          • jsmukg

            Ah, anothersteve was wrong. You cannot even spell ‘Let’s’ which of course requires an apostrophe; ‘lets’ is of course a different word. Like the ‘race traitor’ idiot Rethugs in Virginia, you aren’t even man enough to own your bigotry when called on it. #impotentboyraginginmommy’sbasement
            You’re just too dull to enjoy humiliating. Shooting fish in a barrel. Blocked, boring troll.

          • MAGABoy

            I love how you guys attack me in tangents when you can’t debate me on the merits of my arguments. Block away. You won’t be missed.

          • Mike French

            And you? Are you one of the beautiful ones. Of course, you’re white. MAGABoy? The fat ass like to fuck boys?

          • BlindBill

            I am betting Paid Russian Racist Troll – look, it knows how to add video – not something the “home-schooled” would know.

    • zhera

      Also, staring at the eclipse is bad for your eyes…

    • prixator

      Also, the sun (Obama) is a huge, brilliant object from which light emanates and is the centre of the solar system.

      The moon (Trump) is a small rock orbiting a larger rock which orbits the sun and is only visible because of the sun’s illumination.

  • kcken

    Childish .. like every other tweet. At least he didn’t have 3 or 4 spelling mistakes in that …

    • CB

      Cause it wasn’t his originally.

  • Tomcat

    Racist as it comes.

  • Tomcat

    At the least Obama will be able to pee on Donalds grave. There is that.

  • AtticusP
  • Tomcat

    On Trumps death there will be a GREAT MOVEMENT throughout the land.
    People pissing on his grave.

    • RoFaWh

      He’ll have to be buried in secret with no headstone.

  • Thump mooning America.

  • More like “MEHme”.

  • Trump: blotting out the sun.

    Temporarily . . .

  • Natty Enquirer

    Don’t anyone tell Trump that makes him the feminine Moon to Obama’s masculine Sun.

  • Isn’t there an unwritten rule about presidents not taking cheap shots at other presidents?
    Obama, proceed sir.

    • bzrd

      Naaaaaaaaaaaaaah, that’s just for wimps
      believe me

  • CB

    What they’re missing, of course, that eventually eclipses pass. And they’re forgotten.

  • Uncle Mark

    Sounds like the bitter, old, nazi shitgibbon is still obsessed with the last REAL President. If he was really “eclipsing” Obama, he wouldn’t be trying so hard & often to crow about it. The miserable fuck knows he’s a failure as a president and leader…and that a Black man, without the benefit of a wealthy and privileged upbringing, has far outshown him in leadership, grace, popularity, and intelligence. BURN !! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fcde327a22e6ec66a9eec50852fdccdc98d2d70aea498003dae845f2c8fee10c.jpg

  • Joe Maynard

    It is true. The moon, though an insignificant fraction of the size and mass of the sun, does occasionally obscure it.
    Bear in mind that the moon casts no light of its own. Its glow is a pale white reflection of the sun.

    • Robert Flanagan

      Kind of like Trump touting the accomplishments of the Obama Administration that showed up
      the first six months of his presidency.

      • RoFaWh

        Other people’s achievements.

    • Gerry Fisher

      There you go, getting all elitist and science-y and everything

  • olandp

    How old is he?

    • Jonathan Smith

      mentally or physically?

      • Tomcat

        or emotionally?

    • Snarkaholic

      He’s in his early hundreds (I read it somewhere on line, so it MUST be true).

    • Adam King

      Old enough to drop dead.

      • Karl Dubhe

        Sooon, may it be very soon.

        Of natural causes, of course. Well, natural for someone who eats what he does at that age.

    • RoFaWh

      He turned 71 earlier this year.

  • Adam Stevens

    Delusional much, Trump?

    I only see 1 President depicted here.

    • Snarkaholic

      Yes…and one toxic cloud of gas.

  • worstcultever

    He not only has no idea he’s the most hated person on the planet, he also actually thinks he’s attractive – even more attractive than Obama!

    Just – wow.

    • Adam King

      The only feedback he gets are his twice-a-day flattery briefings and fawning Fix News propaganda, and the only people he talks to are his brown-nosed oily sycophants, his psychopathic family members and his Nazi rally worshippers. He has no idea what people actually think of him.

      • David Walker

        Brown-nosed oily sycophants? More like “orange-nosed oily psyco-phants” (deranged republican’ts).

      • kelven

        While I heartily agree, I also think it is the facade of his malignant narcissistic personality. His unhinged tweets show a part of him that knows he is one of the most despised and unpopular people on the planet right now and it is eating him alive.

        • zhera

          You say the sweetest things! Go on…

        • RoFaWh

          Is it usually the case that narcissists (in the formal psychiatric sense) are pathologically insecure?

          • kelven

            From what I understand, yes.

          • Rick Jackson

            Some psychodynamic literature says the root of all narcissism is shame.

      • RoFaWh

        Maybe a ceaseless stream of tweets all saying the same thing might get through, say about two million. Suggested phrasing: I hate Trump. He’s ugly and fat and a liar to boot.

    • kaydenpat

      That’s what happens when you’re fully delusional.

    • RoFaWh

      I hope he goes for a ride in an old convertible, one with spoked wheels, and much like Isadora Duncan gets his tie caught in a wheel and is strangled to death in public view.

      “He” sure works hard at keeping the truth at bay.

  • Harveyrabbit

    You’re supposed to use the proper eyewear to see the eclipse properly. Allow me to show what it really looks like.

  • Robert Flanagan

    Yes, the moon for a brief period, takes away the life giving energy of the sun.

    • Snarkaholic

      …and is dusty and full of ugly craters.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        and sometimes looks orange.

        • Snarkaholic

          And is sometimes referred to as a “Liar’s Moon.”

          • Paula

            And makes people crazy at times. Lunacy!!!

  • Gerry Fisher

    I’d say “get a room,” but I wouldn’t want to imply that Barrack would be the least bit interested.

  • Rex

    Donald Trump is completely obsessed with Obama. The main reason he wanted to be President was to show he was better and more popular. His obsession is so obvious, it’s sad and show how truly insecure he is. His presidency should only last as long as an eclipse.

    • FAEN

      I liked your Tweet about this on Signorile’s feed.

  • TheManicMechanic

    The United States as a nation is officially dead. I pity our future. This is what the end result of moronic TV programming, participation trophies, and religion has made us. It’s okay, there’s another superhero movie, manufactured diety or pop star to keep us occupied.

    • jmax

      Panem et circenses.

      • TheManicMechanic

        Exactly. History doesn’t lie. Panera Bread could’ve teamed up with Ringling Brothers in a twofer deal.

    • RoFaWh

      Over at Fark, the hurricane heading for Texas was being discussed the last day or two. There were comments that TV weather presenters are mostly useless because they are “celebrities” and don’t know anything about weather forecasting.

      • TheManicMechanic

        In the UK they call them “news readers,” not sure what they call weather presenters, but the gist is the description points out they are not actually true journalists, just talking heads. On most local news here, at least, it seems the weather folks seem to have at least some grasp of the science of weather and forecasting instead of being just figureheads. The more aligned with sensationalism a “news” program (i.e. Fox), the more likely the people on screen are there just for their looks and personal biases.

  • Scoot

    Ugh. Can’t we just lock this thing away somewhere in a room full of mirrors, where it can stare at itself and tell itself how magnificent it thinks it is all day and we never have to hear it? Without even considering the racism, this bottomless need for affirmation and praise, and the never-ending “see, look, this person says I’m the best, see? SEE?” just turns my stomach.

  • -M-

    Trump is such an ignorant, no class buffoon.
    And the trollbots know how to play him.

  • Rocco

    Trumputin is not fit to wipe Obama’s boots. It is so telling that this fool is so obsessed with the best POTUS of my lifetime. No dignity, no respect. This is a new low…so disgusting.

    Synonyms for eclipse…decline, fall, failure, decay, deterioration, degeneration, collapse…”The election results marked the “eclipse” of the traditional center.” “The “eclipse” of the government” In these cases, maybe the definition isn’t so far off after all.

    BTW, of course a solar eclipse is that pale, orangey thing obscured by a dark object. (I realize the moon isn’t dark, but it appears so during a solar eclipse)

    • MBear

      The moon emits not light, therefore youre correct: dark

      More correct than the bible which states the moon is a light

      • The_Wretched

        I keep thinking that were the Bible the least bit supernatural in origin, little mistakes like that wouldn’t happen. Instead, all the ‘science’ in it is what you’d expect from a late bronze age society who didn’t have much by the way of scientific method.

        • MBear

    Try as you might Cheeto you will never come close to eclipsing Obama. He has more intelligence and grace in his πŸ’© than you do in that gelatinous body of yours.

    • RoFaWh

      Not gelatinous. Have you ever seen body fat? It’s like semi-set custard pudding, colored a slightly translucent yellow, not too different from chicken fat.

      The above pic perhaps gives an explanation as to why Drumpf is SO obsessed with his predecessor. President Obama actually looks like a real man, let alone that he IS a real man (unlike the current lumpy piece of trash which needs to be set out on the curb of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue).

        That may also explain some of the enthusiasm shown by deplorables for President Liar; he’s just as fat as they are.

  • kareemachan

  • stevenj

    Epic fail. An eclipse does not just stop. It only lasts for a few brief minutes. Then the light returns. The only thing this meme does is cement trump’s racist image.

  • RLK2

    Somehow feels very racist.

    • RoFaWh

      The right is big on symbolism, but putting Obama in grayscale and President Liar in color will not be interpreted as anything more than flicking bits of shit at Obama.

      Nasty people. Having a black President clearly upset a LOT of people.

  • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

    And still too stupid to wear eye protection.

  • RoFaWh

    As is so common on the right, their lack of education and intelligence has led them to get the analogy backwards: the eclipse was darkness putting out the light, just as Drumpf is undoing anything associated with Obama.

    <thinks>

    Oh, wait: they got it right. Entirely unwittingly and uncomprehendingly, but for once they got something right about President Liar.

    Yes Donald, you over sized turd, we all agree that you are so fat if you are in front of a picture of Obama, we will be forced to look at all the grotesqueness that is you. However, if you are trying to suggest that you are more important than Obama, you silly orange gnat, you will never be as effective, as scholarly, as popular, or globally admired to the degree Obama is still admired. Given your history as a reality television entertainer (i.e., lowest common denominator) you may be more noticeable, which is a different way of eclipsing someone. I will simply point out that a large shit-stain on a white rug is more noticeable than a gemstone on a white rug. In some regards though your analogy is appropriate. You and the moon are cold small entities that makes things dark and scary. Obama and the sun illuminate and bring hope for brighter and better times.
