As expected, from the moment Donald Trump was thought to win the election Tuesday night, the meme warriors on the internet took charge and produced some fantastic Trump Victory content. Memes have been a big part of Trump’s popularity across the internet. The iconic “Pepe the Frog” image was springing up everywhere, so much so that Hillary Clinton pointed it out and called it “racist.” Her comments about the “basket of deplorables” making “racist” memes on the internet only fueled the fire and Trump fans looking to “Make America Great Again” went head on into meme making. Election night was no different.

Thus, the hilarious image below was created.
