The president spent much of his prime-time address repeating lies about immigration while reaffirming his demand for $5.7 billion in border wall money to end the partial government shutdown.
Pelosi slammed Trump immediately after, describing his recent behavior as “full of misinformation and even malice.” Schumer then accused him of using the address to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”
As the pair stood stoically together schooling the president, Twitter users couldn’t help but turn them into memes.
