Trump's Truck Photo Op Becomes Popular Meme
"Does he think he's talking to a Decepticon? Is the President pretending that he's Keanu Reeves in 'Speed'?"
A photo op of President Donald Trump in a semi-truck on Thursday became instant Twitter gold, with memes and cinematic comparisons popping up throughout the day.
The moment, captured on the White House driveway in honor of Trump's meeting with the American Trucking Association, was parodied with memes and jokes about Speed, Mad Max and even Hands on a Hardbody.
The photo op came on the same day as Trump demanded a vote on health care legislation after the House vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act was postponed until Friday.

feels like we could easily get the President involved in a HANDS ON A HARDBODY type situation that would keep him occupied for 4 years— PAPPADEMAS (@PAPPADEMAS) March 23, 2017
Is the President shitting himself? Does he think he's talking to a Decepticon? Is the President pretending that he's Keanu Reeves in Speed? pic.twitter.com/EU9ItFYcoy— Calamity Bannon (@CharlesPulliam) March 23, 2017
