WASHINGTON (AP) A new meme has taken the internet by storm: the meme of the presidential debate.
The new meme comes from the debate, which took place Thursday night at the University of New Hampshire.
It has become a national obsession among conservatives and libertarians, and some of the most-tweeted moments on social media were a reference to a video from 2008 of then-candidate John McCain saying, “If we were debating a zombie apocalypse, you know, a little boy and a lady would have to fight.”
That video sparked a flurry of memes, which have since taken on a life of their own.
The latest:The president’s comments about “little boys and girls” were met with criticism on the left, but the president himself defended them.
“If I said something like that I was making a joke, which is what this was about, and that is what it’s about,” he said.
