President Donald Trump sat at a small-looking desk to baselessly rant about election fraud on Thanksgiving and Twitter users had a field day with the furniture.

Trump flipped out at a reporter, whined about the media and refused to say if he’ll attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration while taking questions from the press after a video chat with service members on Thursday.

President Donald Trump spoke with reporters following a video chat with members of the military and the tiny desk he sat at bASSOCIATED PRESS President Donald Trump spoke with reporters following a video chat with members of the military and the tiny desk he sat at became a meme.

Photographs from Trump’s presser soon became a meme as Twitter users joked the president had been moved to the kids’ table for Thanksgiving.

Maybe if you behave yourself, stop lying to undermine a fair election & start thinking of what's good for the country instead of whining about how unfairly you are treated, you'll be invited to sit at the big boy's table. #DiaperDon pic.twitter.com/nnNOoOI1gl

It’s like one of those “just like Mommy” mini kitchen sets they sell in toy catalogs, but for the Resolute Desk. I can’t stop looking at it.

Lame-duck dropping the worst tiny desk concert ever.

When Donald Trump learned President Obama had a tiny desk concert at the White House, clearly he misunderstood.Fitting. https://t.co/oa5QfPS75K

Just want to give an extra Thanksgiving shout-out to the person in Trump’s camp who walked out to look at that desk prior to today’s presser and went, “Yeah, looks good. Bring him in.” #hero pic.twitter.com/wR4TnBmZOg

Speaking of #DiaperDon, whichever staffer tricked him into sitting at that tiny desk is a f'ing hero. I hope we find out their name someday so we can properly celebrate them. pic.twitter.com/FkjJ6ubkva

The best part about the tiny desk is this is where he got mad at a reporter and snapped “I’m the president of the United States. Don’t talk to me that way.”A cartoonist couldn’t have imagined it better.

There was an apparent explanation for the desk, however, which some people noted was usually used by the president when surrounded by others:

Here’s the thing about the small desk Trump is sitting at. It’s like… a bill-signing desk. It’s meant to have a dozen or so people around it. I think it might be small so that more people can cram in for a photo op.It is not intended to be a desk you sit at alone. pic.twitter.com/LOc0M1bImE

Really, it’s not the desk that’s weird. This small desk has been used many, many times when Presidents sign bills into law. pic.twitter.com/71NSvgFJ71

— 📌 Pinned Tweet (@Mantia) November 27, 2020

Seriously. The desk is fine. Presidents have sat at this kind of desk for decades in signing ceremonies.What’s *weird* is that Trump would want to sit at this desk to answer questions from the press. Get up. Go to another room. Like the Press Briefing Room, for instance. pic.twitter.com/G4550kVOCA

— 📌 Pinned Tweet (@Mantia) November 27, 2020

This is not the first time Trump has sat at the bill-signing desk either. In fact, years ago, he even remarked, “This is a child’s desk, but that’s okay.” https://t.co/hWVb2ZwF3S pic.twitter.com/KWAzAmKPx9

(Like, I’m all for poking fun at this fuckin’ bozo. Knock yourselves out. But as per usual, it’s his *behavior* that makes him a dum dum, not the damn piece of furniture. This desk is pretty heckin’ standard. You don’t have to make this out to be something it isn’t.)
