President Donald Trump’s disturbing reaction to the current election results has triggered memes and parodies, as the Internet is creating the idea that he will leave the White House in January.
In a press conference late Thursday evening, Trump repeatedly made false allegations about election fraud and corruption, so much so that several news channels distanced themselves from his speech. On Twitter, he again falsely declared his victory in a tweet that was described as misleading.
Trump’s unconventional behavior in recent days has prompted social media users to share memes and parody videos imagining how he might react when he is told he must leave the White House.
Usama Wajid shared the sketch “Donny Goes to School” from Comedy Central, in which an actor playing Vice President Mike Pence tries to get an actor playing Trump to leave a playgroup with children, suggesting that Trump’s behavior in the sketch reflects how Trump might behave.
In the sketch, when Pence tells the President that they have to leave the group, Trump, who jumps on a room funnel, throws a tantrum and rolls around on the floor screaming, “I don’t want to leave!
Pence tells him to “give the ball to someone else” and in the end the crying president is dragged out of the room.
Trump: I don’t want to leave the White House.
But, sir, you must… ðð¤£ð¤£#TrumpMeltdown #USElection2020 #USAelection2020 #USAelection2020 #USElectionResults #USElections2020 #USAelection2020 pic.twitter.com/yNG1qTB84j

Brett Banditelli shared the memo “Hitler’s doomsday parodies” and compared the clip to how Trump would have to react behind the scenes.
The scene from Der Untergang (2004), a German drama from World War II about the last ten days of Adolf Hitler’s life in his underground bunker in Berlin, has been parodied online for 14 years.
This time the video was subtitled to indicate how Trump reacts to the news about the election results, his plan to stop counting the votes, and his collapse due to the fact that the votes are still being counted. The video even shows the line, “If we only counted Republicans’ votes… I would be unstoppable,” and has already been viewed more than five million times.
Fortunately, someone has seen the video https://t.co/Nv2vQQCIfp pic.twitter.com/Ks0SQkaVMN

Although not every vote has been counted and the results are not yet final, social media users, having witnessed Trump’s behavior since election day, cannot be held responsible for predicting what may come.
