Trump tweets meme video showing him ruling ‘4EVA’
Based on the October 2018 TIME magazine cover – promoting the story titled “How Trumpism Will Outlast Trump” – the video, posted on Friday afternoon, zooms in on the top left corner, where an amused Trump looks over a yard sign bearing his name and the years from 2024 to, well, eternity.
Not surprisingly, the video is the work of the president’s favorite memesmith, who goes by the name ‘Carpe Donktum.’
This is not the first time Trump has used Carpe’s videos, most recently using one to mock Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden. Back in February, he even pinned to the top of his feed a video of reactions to his State of the Union speech, set to R.E.M's ‘Everybody Hurts’.
TIME called the meme video a "manipulated version" of their cover and responded with their own animation.
