In an attempt to send a positive message to his base about the 2018 midterms, President Donald Trump attracted a lot of snarky comments that were positively hilarious.
Trump posted this tweet on Wednesday, predicting a “red wave” following Tuesday’s primaries in a handful of states:
Those two words, typed in all caps, were enough to inspire internet comedians to new heights of clapback.
Some used GIFs of classic Stephen King movies to express themselves.
A few people couldn’t help but remind Trump that the color red is associated with communism and Soviet Russia.
And for some, Trump’s comments inspired comparisons to a different kind of red wave.
One woman also made a compelling argument that Tuesday’s special election in Ohio didn’t qualify as a red wave, menstrually speaking.
