Donald Trump had the most unfortunate backdrop for his speech, and Twitter lost it

Oh dear.

OVER THE LAST few days, the world has been all Brexit this and end of Great Britain as we know it that.

So much so that we had almost forgotten that Donald Trump was still threatening to be President of the United States. 2016: what a time to be alive, eh?

Today Donald Trump visited Monessen, Pennsylvania to give an economic policy speech. His backdrop for the speech?

A wall of rubbish.

Yes, Trump delivered his speech from a local aluminium recycling plant…

And ended up with the most unfortunate background ever.

Twitter had an absolute field day.

Although some were so weary that they couldn’t even summon the energy to react

Imagine the conversations that took place beforehand

Communications 101: optics are very important

The captions just write themselves…

Oh, 2016. Please slow down. We’re not sure we can handle anymore.
