Woman’s tweet about cleaning Trump’s Hollywood star inspires slew of memes

In 2017, nearly anything posted on the internet can take a turn into the latest meme. Since President Donald Trump took office earlier this year, his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been vandalized multiple times, according to CNN. So last week, when Makenna Greenwald tweeted photos of herself wiping off stains and smiling next to the clean star, Twitter users responded with an avalanche of memes. 

The original tweet was retweeted more than 50,000 times and received nearly a quarter of a million likes. Trump’s son Eric even quote-tweeted her to say thanks. Shortly after, Twitter users began using Greenwald’s words and posting their own versions using stars from all over the tourist site. 

Musicians, actors and just about every stretch of pop culture got their own spin as the meme took off.

Some of the tweets even suggested stars who couldn’t technically be president because they were fictional characters, born outside of the U.S. or well, dead.

And though Kiefer Sutherland plays the president on the show “Designated Survivor,” he couldn't actually be president since he was born across the pond.

In the end, it looks like Twitter users did their part to keep the stars of Hollywood Boulevard clean, and that’s a win for everyone.
