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. This week: the Mother of All Bombs gives birth to some memes.

Hello, everyone! This past week was a good one for memes, so I won’t waste any of your time. Hope you enjoyed your Easter.

Meme grade: Strong start today. A+.

Let’s get into some United Airlines memes. When you first saw images of a doctor being dragged off of a UA flight by police, you probably didn’t think “hey, a little Photoshop work could turn that into a great political meme,” because you are not a psychopath. Luckily, the same can’t be said of your fellow man.

Meme grade: Dated reference, but nevertheless ELITE.

Here’s a reference that’s a bit more contemporary: Steve Bannon has lost influence in the Trump White House thanks in part to his rivalry with Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Meme grade: Also ELITE. I wish I had more of these, but let’s move on.

Besides airline meltdowns, this week also saw a major bombing in the Middle East. President Trump made the call to drop the MOAB, nicknamed the “Mother of All Bombs.” First, let’s look at r/the_Donald’s only anti-war meme this week, which I assume they posted just for old times’ sake.

Meme grade: Is this really the lustiest looking John McCain photo they could find? F.

After briefly chastising John McCain for wanting to bomb things, r/the_Donald – having been successfully purged of anti-interventionists – moved on to loudly praising Trump for dropping the MOAB.  The MOAB is our most powerful non-nuclear bomb, and r/the_Donald’s subscribers think that is just the coolest shit.

Meme grade: Pepe’s position on foreign intervention is apparently pretty flexible.

Meme grade: Here it is, our Meme of the Week.

Yes, it was a banner week for r/the_Donald. They really bounced back after their rough week, and they’re dominating this week’s Monday Memes.

Meme grade: ELITE. Pro tip: this particular meme format pretty much guarantees your inclusion in Monday Memes. Special thanks to reader Kevin for sending this in.

Meme grade: Oh boy.

Protesters from rival groups – the alt-right and antifa (anti-fascist) – clashed in Berkeley, California this week. One hippie got punched, and Trump supporters are pretty stoked about it. The meme-ing of the punch is presumably at least partly a reaction to the left’s triumphant meme-ing of the Richard Spencer punch a few months ago.

Meme grade: The chyron makes it.

Meme grade: Not bad.

Meme grade: Great attention to detail. A+.

We’ve had about 800 alt-right memes so far this week, but what about the left? Did they make any good memes this week? The answer is no.

Meme grade: M E D I O C R E

Okay, we actually got one good lefty meme this week. Here’s a Sean Spicer forgetting about the Holocaust, mashed up with Skip Bayless’ First Take reactions.

Meme grade: ELITE.

Last but not least, let’s check out a meme inspired by this picture (which is real!):

Yep, that’s real. It’s not a meme. Here’s the meme.

Meme grade: Superb.

See you next week.
