Dankest Memes Of The 2016 Presidential Race So Far

AntiMedia Staff
May 2, 2016

(ANTIMEDIA) As your thumb guides you through an endless sea of invisible friends pontificating to strangers on social media, your eye catches what appears to be a never-before-seen meme from that page you follow. Your fifth digit hesitates as it scrolls in retreat back through the “news” feed when the dankness overtakes you. An accidental snort audibly stutters from your face as you attempt to suppress the brief burst of awkward giddiness.

Embarrassing.

You’re not even supposed to be on your phone right now, but you’re a rebel and confidently press share, anyway, even though you’re friends with your boss on Facebook. That meme says everything you ever wanted to say about the candidate(s) with whom you do not identify — and it must be seen by others. As you await the cyber-gratitude that comes with being the first on your friends list to share the latest viral meme, you finally allow yourself to be bothered and decide to do some “actual” work. (It’s about time too, and I don’t care what your boss “let’s” you do).

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction… and in its typical dark satirical form, the internet’s response to the current U.S. presidential race has been nothing short of hilarious. Some of the memes floating around are almost as ridiculous as the candidates, themselves.

Enjoy.
