President Trump took to Twitter, as per usual, Thursday morning to first blast Republican leadership in Congress.
Then he retweeted a meme sent to him as a reply and it immediately caught fire on both traditional and social media.

Some found the humor in Trump retweeting something like it while others immediately cried, “Racist!” as some predicted.
Wow…. now if that is not one of the most racist things I have ever seen I don't know what is. And our POTUS retweeted it! Shameful

However, the meme appears to be a derivative of an earlier meme where Barack Obama’s face eclipsed Trump’s.

It does make one wonder how many of the same people of either opinion on the retweeted meme would flip their reactions depending on which version they saw.
