Donald Trump is giving a big speech on trade in Pennsylvania today, but all anyone on Twitter is talking about is the backdrop.
For some reason, someone thought it would be a great idea to have Trump deliver his address in front of a giant pile of garbage. Literally, look at the photos: He's talking in front of a trash heap.
Twitter users from both the left and right predictably pounced:
"I know, let's have the candidate speak in front of what looks like a dumpster!" -no advance staffer EVER— Jessica Taylor (@Jessica Taylor) 1467138370.0
That staging is complete rubbish— Dan Eggen (@Dan Eggen) 1467138633.0
At least it's not on fire. That would be too on the nose. https://t.co/q3qrAY2XJT— Jonah Goldberg (@Jonah Goldberg) 1467138425.0
Wow. I didnt realize it was that pronounced. That's all anyone is going to talk about. https://t.co/vXjdtiqb2V— Armando (@Armando) 1467138657.0
Maybe they were hoping posing him in front of an even bigger pile of garbage might make him look better. https://t.co/dV2Fky5FC1— Jen is not shy just tired (@Jen is not shy just tired) 1467138801.0
“Mr. Trump needs a backdrop.” “What do you have in mind?” “It’s gotta be on-brand. Obviously.” “A giant pile of garbage?” “Genius.”— Jamison Foser (@Jamison Foser) 1467138954.0
