Have images of your friend's cats with Donald Trump's hair-do shown up in your Twitter feed? How about you Instagram feed? I thought so. #TrumpYourCat is trending on social media.
Is it political commentary? Maybe. Is it funny? Definitely.
"In the running for President of the United States, Donald Trump is proving himself to be the easiest candidate to mock," writes Amy Graff in an article on Chron. "With his rants and stumbles, the business magnate and reality television star turned politician offers plenty of material for comedy writers, meme makers, even cat lovers."
If you want to participate, too, it's easy: Brush your cat, form the hair you brushed into a toupee, and place the toupee on your cat.
According to Know Your Meme, cats with Trump hairstyles date back to 2011, "when an image was created in the style of a Demotivational Poster where a cat with a ring of discarded fur on its head says 'Your Fired"(sic) in the style of Trump.'"
How did the most recent trend begin?
On June 29th, 2015, the Instagram account @TrumpYourCat was created. The first post read "I will build a great wall -- and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me --and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.' - @realdonaldtrump"
On July 7th, 2015, an accompanying Twitter account was created to retweet photos tagged with @TrumpYourCat.
On July 10th, 2015, @TrumpYourCat was featured on Rachel Maddow's television show.
After the show, "1,720 people tweeted about Trumping their cat, often Tweeting directly at Maddow. The trend was then featured widely in the media, including on many outlets such as Mashable and the New York Daily News," writes Ari Spool on Know Your Meme. "Between July 9th and 14th, the hashtag #TrumpYourCat had been used more than 4,246 times on Twitter and 975 times on Instagram."
