President Trump’s decisions and behavior are often difficult to fathom or understand. (And that’s me attempting to be as politic as possible.)
However, Trump’s modus operandi makes much more sense if you picture him as a tiny, infantile toddler. All of the puzzle pieces fall into place when we imagine that he is actually an immature child attempting to govern the country. Sure, it doesn’t make the current state of the nation any less terrifying — but at least it makes Trump’s motivations seem understandable as opposed to deranged. And isn’t there some tiny sliver of comfort in that?
This very sentiment has inspired the now-iconic Tiny Trump meme, which sprang forth from the depths of Reddit last night. The subreddit, r/TinyTrumps, currently has over 15,000 subscribers and specializes in curating Photoshopped images of the commander-in-chief as a stunted, tiny little man-boy.
Thanks to this new meme trend, we now have a whole treasure trove of miniaturized Trump photos to delight us while the actual Trump wreaks havoc everywhere.
