Gallery: The Biden-Obama Meme Phenomenon

Nothing expressed the collective  feelings of the American Left like the stream of Biden-Obama memes that followed Hillary Clinton’s surprise defeat by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. While each meme is different, all express the same emotions: nostalgia for the past 8 years, appreciation of the uniqueness of the Obama presidency, and anxiety (mixed with denial) about what they perceived as the stark transition that the US was about to make. The last meme in the collection is maybe the most showing in this regard.

For a look at the imagery of the pro-Trump camp, during this period and the run-up to the election, see the “Pro-Trump Cartoons” gallery. Click for a larger image.
