Twitter absolutely loses it over Trump’s meeting with the Russians
So Trump reportedly revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during a meeting last week, as you do.
The U.S. press was barred from the meeting — only their Russian counterparts were invited, naturally — but multiple officials revealed the news to the Washington Post for a report published Monday.
The news was met with various shades of dismay and disappointment from pretty much every quarter as the enormity of Trump’s latest actions set in.
However, the internet was on hand as ever to assuage some of our existential fear with the usual buffet of GIFs, quips and LOLs.
The Twitter wit then came thick and fast to
normalize contextualize Trump’s boo boo.
There were echoes of Trump’s ‘locker room banter’
It was just Situation Room talk.

Hillary featured in a common refrain
Some people took the opportunity to make not-at-all-scary nuclear jokes
Others pulled out a screenshot from Trump’s ‘Home Alone 2’ cameo
The dream of impeachment was alive and well
There was wordplay
Lots of wordplay
And GIFs galore
Oh how we laughed.
