Monday was a strange day for the Republicans. They got torn apart by the public over Trump’s moronic response to Senator Amy Klobuchar’s presidential announcement, shredded by their constituents when voters discovered they got screwed by the GOP tax plan, and sent their golden boy to El Paso, where he once again told obvious lies about the size of the crowd in attendance.
All in all, not a great start to the week.
Maybe all that big stuff, however, is why this one kind of flew under the radar: Apparently, the person in charge of creating their slogans was born in December of 2016 because the new one they rolled out seems a little… familiar. Let’s see if you can spot what’s so recognizable in the graphic they tweeted:

Oh, that’s right — it’s the phrase we heard every day for more than 6 months in 2016, because it was Trump’s opponent’s campaign slogan because of course Trump took Hillary’s campaign slogan. When he sees something he likes, he just locks it down (up?).
It wasn’t just the internet that dragged the Republicans over their appropriation, but boy, did they:
When is Trump going to do the “Yes We Can” campaign and Melania leaving Be Best to focus on childhood obesity?

Well he stole her presidency. Might as well steal her slogan too

Oh, hey, it’s that thing where men pretend a woman doesn’t exist until a man repeats what she said.

But the social media pundits got an assist from Hillary herself, and I swear, rappers are going to start doing this on diss tracks, because it left my head nodding:
