Monday Memes - political memes from Indelegate

Welcome to Monday Memes, where we take a look at all of the best and worst memes that the internet had to offer in the past week.

What a week in memes, folks. We can’t talk about this week’s crop of memes without first acknowledging husky everyman Ken Bone, who spawned a bunch of trash memes and one really good one:

Meme grade: Exception to the rule

But this week wasn’t just about Ken Bone. We also enjoyed the brief, bright burn of a glorious meme based on some tweets from Nate Silver:

Let’s check out some of the greatest hits.

Have you checked in on Trump’s campaign lately? It’s, uh, not going well. Among the pleased parties are the conservative anti-Trump folks over at Facebook’s Republican Memes page. They celebrated with this post:

Meme grade: There is a lot to unpack here.

Trump’s troubles have centered around accusations of sexual assault, which is kind of a rough look for him after being caught on tape bragging about exactly that. But if any good has come of this, it’s in the form of these dope Trump-as-Jabba-the-Hut memes:

Meme grade: Yoobah koh ra doh ka mallo wampa mah yass ka chung kawah wookiee.

Meme grade:  Ah, chicaboog noon-eeg Solo. Tah keeng sa leeng ah pak mugglah, peeska chatah: may now kung bantha poodoo!

That right there is our meme of the week, by the way.

This week has been rough on Hillary Clinton, too – or at least it would have been, if Trump’s scandals hadn’t dominated the news cycle. She’s been dealing with some fallout from emails leaked by WikiLeaks, which show some of the more unsavory ways in which your center-left sausage is made. Reddit’s r/the_Donald is incensed, but they do know a hero when they see one.

Meme grade: Makes u think

That’s all we’ve got. See you next week.
