The Brief: In anticipation of Donald Trump leaving the White House, people who dislike and oppose the president are sharing their joy about his departure via memes.
At noon on January 20th, 2021, President-elect Joe Biden will take the oath of office, making him the new President of the United States. Across the internet, people are celebrating how this will mark the end of Donald Trump’s presidency by sharing memes, videos, and quips about how they’ll be saying “bye” to “Don.”
Cheers about Trump’s departure from the White House are particularly popular on #Resistance Twitter and sides of the internet aligned with the Lincoln Project. People are saying their smug goodbyes to the President, noting that once Biden is inaugurated, not only will the “Cheeto” not be able to tweet, he also won’t be president.
No garbage collection today—because it’s MLK Day and because, this week, America’s taking out the trash on Wednesday.

Of course, people turned Trump’s signature tagline from The Apprentice, “you’re fired,” against him.
