Long before he was president, Donald Trump tweeted an “interesting cartoon.”
Today that tweet has come back to haunt him after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was forced to hold a press conference denying he called Trump a moron.
Tillerson refused to answer questions Wednesday about an NBC News report that said he called Trump a moron in July, and within minutes this vintage tweet of a cartoon and subsequent meme started re-circulating.
The original image comes from artist Dan Collins and includes the caption, “I keep thinking we should include something in the Constitution in case the people elect a complete moron.” Trump’s version was a little stronger.
Modified captions have been memed out over the years and trace back to blogs and Myspace profiles from as far back as 2008.
There really is a Trump tweet for everything.
