The #ORB is taking over the internet
President Donald Trump has finally completed his transformation into a cartoon villain.
On Monday, a photo emerged of the commander in chief placing his hands on a glowing orb alongside the Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. In reality, the orb was simply a miniature globe illuminated from the inside, presented at the opening event for the new Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology. As local media reported, the leaders’ hands “officially activated the centre and launched a splashy welcome video.” But in the collective mind of Twitter, the orb was much, much more sinister. Check out a few the hilarious takes on the glowing orb below.
Even Breitbart, a news organization with deep ties to the Trump administration, got in on the joke.
