Remember Obama–Biden memes? The gag, which arose the week after Donald Trump won the election, was based around fictionalized conversations between Barack Obama and Joe Biden in which Biden would try to convince Obama to prank the incoming administration. Step one: Find picture of Obama and Biden chatting. Step two: Add a dialogue ending with Obama admonishing Biden for his suggestions. (“Joe.”) It was a decent — if repetitive — meme from a simpler time. Today it got a brief revitalization when Obama himself used it to wish Joe Biden a happy birthday.
Frankly, we here at Select All think Obama’s meme game could use a little work. The structure here is clunky. His image choice — which looks like a still from a GIF or low-quality video — is suspect. Barry, call us the next time you want tweet a meme. We can help.
