In the latest of his near-daily Twitter rants, a childish President Trump retweeted an image showing a colorized portrait of him moving in front of a black-and-white picture of Barack Obama. The caption read, “THE BEST ECLIPSE EVER!”
Within minutes, the meme had more than 2,800 retweets and 7,300 likes. But while Trump likely thought the photo manipulation was accurate because he was taking center stage over his predecessor, social media users quickly pointed out that the meme’s scenario meant Obama was the sun.

“This is actually correct,” read a comment by Ed Krassenstein, who was behind one of the tweet’s top replies. “The Darkness of Trump has overtaken the brightness of Obama. The Sun is what gives us life and energy!”
This is actually correct. The Darkness of Trump has overtaken the brightness of Obama. The Sun is what gives us life and energy!

User Todd Swanson agrees, calling Trump’s presidency “the darkest moment in world history.”

Sadly, while the total solar eclipse he referenced lasted for only about three minutes, Americans will have to put up with Donald Trump for four years if he is not removed from office.
