When it comes to making memes, the internet often finds no better subject than the American President, Donald Trump. From being represented by a floating baby blimp to getting ruthlessly trolled, the internet is relentless in its pursuit of making Trump the butt of all jokes.

In a trend started by Armando Iannucci on Twitter, the American President has been replaced by penguins in all his pictures, and the internet can’t get enough of it.

Taking on Iannucci’s challenge, Tweeple have photoshopped a penguin in place of the American President in many of his pictures with world leaders, including Kim Jong-un and Queen Elizabeth II.

Is This Ice Age?

Iannucci also noted that the substitution of Trump in any of the pictures creates an even funnier viewing if you take into account the reactions of the people in the photo.


North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and the American President came together for this historic meeting.

And then there’s this inception-of-sorts. Pssst... notice the image in the mobile phone.

And then there is this...

The internet just cannot get enough.
