"I am the chosen one to take on China" proclaimed President Trump on August 31, 2019. The meme or photograph of an elephant, with Trump Hair, was created in honor of that particular Trumpism. The elephant stands on a white background and stretches his arms out wide as he issues the Chosen One statement. I mean, who could resist creating a Trump Meme for that occasion?
To create this Trump meme "The Chosen One" i used an elephant that I had photographed in Thailand. The elephat makes a perfect Trump metaphor because elephants are the symbol of the Republican party. I then Photoshoped Trump Hair (I photographed a wig) on to the Elephant's head to make it clear that President Trump is the subject of the meme. I had the elephant's arms stretched out wide to mimic Trump's penchant for hyperbole and exaggeration. The elephant's mouth is open wide as he proclaims that he is the chosen one.
Memes And Freedom Of Speech
In this Internet age the Meme has appeared as an important method of exercising ones freedom of speech. Memes are photos or illustrations that mimic reality in a humorous way and one that hopefully "goes viral" to get as much exposure to people and the world as possible. While I am new to the meme world I am finding it rather fun...a great way to poke some fun at Donald Trump and as the future unfolds perhaps some of the other aspects of government and society that I find baffling and outrageous.
