President Donald Trump sat at a small-looking desk to baselessly rant about election fraud on Thanksgiving, and Twitter users had a field day with the furniture.
Trump flipped out at a reporter, whined about the media and refused to say if he’ll attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration while taking questions from the press after a video chat with service members on Thursday.
Photographs from Trump’s presser soon became a meme as Twitter users joked the president had been moved to the kids’ table for Thanksgiving.
Maybe if you behave yourself, stop lying to undermine a fair election & start thinking of what's good for the country instead of whining about how unfairly you are treated, you'll be invited to sit at the big boy's table. #DiaperDon pic.twitter.com/nnNOoOI1gl— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) November 27, 2020
It’s like one of those “just like Mommy” mini kitchen sets they sell in toy catalogs, but for the Resolute Desk. I can’t stop looking at it.— Celeste Ng (@pronounced_ing) November 27, 2020
Lame-duck dropping the worst tiny desk concert ever.— Mat Johnson (@mat_johnson) November 27, 2020

The best part about the tiny desk is this is where he got mad at a reporter and snapped “I’m the president of the United States. Don’t talk to me that way.”— Helen Kennedy (@HelenKennedy) November 27, 2020
A cartoonist couldn’t have imagined it better.
There was an apparent explanation for the desk, however, which some people noted was usually used by the president when surrounded by others:
Here’s the thing about the small desk Trump is sitting at. It’s like... a bill-signing desk. It’s meant to have a dozen or so people around it. I think it might be small so that more people can cram in for a photo op.— 📌 Pinned Tweet (@Mantia) November 27, 2020
It is not intended to be a desk you sit at alone. pic.twitter.com/LOc0M1bImE
Seriously. The desk is fine. Presidents have sat at this kind of desk for decades in signing ceremonies.— 📌 Pinned Tweet (@Mantia) November 27, 2020
What’s *weird* is that Trump would want to sit at this desk to answer questions from the press. Get up. Go to another room. Like the Press Briefing Room, for instance. pic.twitter.com/G4550kVOCA
(Like, I’m all for poking fun at this fuckin’ bozo. Knock yourselves out. But as per usual, it’s his *behavior* that makes him a dum dum, not the damn piece of furniture. This desk is pretty heckin’ standard. You don’t have to make this out to be something it isn’t.)— 📌 Pinned Tweet (@Mantia) November 27, 2020
