Love him or hate him, President Donald Trump can rile up the left like nobody’s business.
With liberals still coming down from Trumps’ rally in Arizona, the president took to Twitter to take a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan over the debt ceiling increase:
Trump then retweeted a response to his remarks that featured a photo of himself overshadowing his predecessor, former President Barack Obama — with Trump’s image in vibrant color and Obama’s in black and white.
The caption reads: “The Best Eclipse Ever!”

The meme was enough to bring liberals to their collective knee, aghast over the slight to their messiah.
Trump’s re-tweet also prompted what may very well be the most accurate prediction of the year:
Prediction: The alt-left will have raging fits of hysteria claiming this Trump retweet is racist. In 3,2,1…. https://t.co/1efGiGl2HB

Speaking of that reaction, here’s a sampling of the “fits of hysteria,” as liberals come to the defense of their venerable progressive prince:
This is actually correct. The Darkness of Trump has overtaken the brightness of Obama. The Sun is what gives us life and energy!

The president of the United States just re-tweeted this.

Shorter Trump: Obama is a star, without which life on earth would be impossible and I am but a lifeless reflection of his brilliance https://t.co/Kl0vMAhiyx

So Obama is the sun — the bright center of our galaxy — and Trump is the moon, a dead rock that briefly obscures it? That's your metaphor? https://t.co/7Bs3R1OFAu
