Top Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Unwittingly Inspired an Impressive Array of Memes

Top Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer unwittingly inspired an impressive array of memes with their double-act address in response to President Donald Trump’s Oval Office speech.

The pair’s stern stares reminded many people of angry parents about to lay into their child for missing curfew. The “we’re so disappointed by you” look was picked up and mocked by many on Twitter.

Comedian Stephen Colbert’s Twitter account wondered why they couldn’t stretch to two podiums for the top ranking Democrats, especially as they had managed to gather six US flags to place in the background.

This in turn was mocked, as someone joked it took Colbert’s writing team 40 minutes to come up with a joke that wasn’t “vicious.”

Another pointed out that the pair looked as though they had been drawn by South Park cartoonists.

Another Twitter user took the chance to argue a case for term limits for representatives. Pelosi was first elected to the House in 1987, and Schumer has been a senator since 1998, after serving in the House before that, since 1980.
