President Donald Trump’s last day in office was predictably met with a lot of snark on Twitter, the platform he was booted from earlier this month after inciting the U.S. Capitol riot.
Tweeters gleefully counted down the final hours of Trump’s presidency with mocking images and videos. Many used festive analogies to explain their anticipation of Trump being replaced by President-elect Joe Biden.
“It feels a bit like Christmas Eve, but you already know what you’ll get when you open the present,” veteran journalist Dan Rather wrote. “A restoration of American democracy, decency, and hope.”
Happy last day of Donald Trump’s presidency to those who celebrate!

Tonight is like Christmas Eve on twitter. But this time, the big, elderly white dude is leaving the house instead.
