The Hill reported today on a viral tweet from the ‘90s nu-metal band Papa Roach. Yep, that’s right. That’s where we are now.
The Papa Roach official account posted a variation of a meme created last night after Donald Trump spewed barely comprehensible bile at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, potentially laying the groundwork for a war against Iran.
Let’s think a little bit about what’s going on here. A band who are already a meme in and of themselves have used their own oft-memed song to make fun of a tweet by the President of the United States, who is Donald Trump. Then, this series of events was reported by a serious political publication. Sure. Why not.
According to The Hill, White House national security advisor John Bolton said in a statement on Monday: “I spoke to the president over the last several days, and President Trump told me that if Iran does anything at all to the negative, they will pay a price like few countries have ever paid before.” Awesome.
We’ll just be listening to this until everything calms down.
