The Brief: Hotel Trivago memes use the website Trivago.com's slogan as a punchline. These memes have been rising in popularity on Twitter in the days leading up to and following the 2020 Presidential Election.
Hotel Trivago memes are growing in popularity on Twitter. In these memes, the punchline is “Hotel Trivago.” It is typically delivered as the final answer to a string of questions, the final thought in a strong of short quips, or the final count on a scoreboard. The phrase “hotel? Trivago” is a reference to commercials for trivago.com that end with that catchphrase.
According to Know Your Meme, this meme first appeared on Twitter in February 2017. User @Baleinho posted a tweet comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler followed by the caption, “Mystery? Maybe. Hotel? Trivago.” It garnered over 83,000 likes and 67,000 retweets and was seen in circulation over the years.
Hitler died in 1945. Trump was born in 1945.
Coincidence? I don't think so.

The memes seem to be having a resurgence just as the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election — where Donald Trump is squaring off with Joe Biden.
