“You guys lost so bad.”
A liberal journalist was ridiculed for posting a disgruntled tweet on Thursday following the release of the Mueller report.
Judd Legum – a founder of the progressive ThinkProgress news site– was responding to a self-referential meme shared by President Donald Trump that declared “Game Over.” Apparently triggered by the “Game of Thrones”-themed post, Legum suggested that Trump’s fondness for memes was somehow damning.

Many commenters joked that the president’s critics are clearly getting desperate for proof that he committed a crime.

Others noted that “pro-tip” is itself a meme, albeit a lame one.
