The Washington Post on Thursday published an incredible story on Donald Trump’s effort to “borrow” a Vincent Van Gogh painting for use in the president and First Lady’s living quarters.

The Internet on Thursday was thoroughly amused by what users saw as the perfect metaphor for Trump’s presidency.
