Back in 2014, when Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was caught on tape making incredibly racist remarks, reporters asked President Obama to comment. His response turned into a meme.
It was another wise president, Abraham Lincoln, who once said that it is “better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.”
Those sentiments seem to have been captured in a new meme.
Comedians like Jimmy Kimmel are demonstrating how to implement that so-called “liberal plot.”

Trevor Noah got in on the action too.

But it isn’t just comedians. The Biden campaign seems to have discovered that all they need for an effective campaign ad is to combine the president’s own words with a little musical accompaniment.
Over 1 million cases of COVID-19. Almost 70,000 dead. What is upsetting President Trump? Tough questions from the press.

Or how about extending Trump’s comparison of himself to Abraham Lincoln?

To borrow Obama’s meme, this president does an excellent job of advertising his own ignorance. There are times when all we have to do is let him talk.
