That Trump interview was a disaster but these 23 Jonathan Swan memes aren’t
‘Me trying to find grilled cheese on the fancy menu’
It is no surprise to anyone Trump’s latest interview was a complete failure, but what no one was expecting was for it to create some quality memes aka the Jonathan Swan memes.
Australian journalist Jonathan Swan grilled Trump on Tuesday about coronavirus, Ghislaine Maxwell and his 2020 campaign. Trump used a load of papers to defend his handling of the pandemic. And alongside that, Trump commented he had done more for black people than civil rights campaigner John Lewis, which got a lot of priceless reactions from Jonathan.
