Trump mugshot in Georgia case triggers meme frenzy on social media

By Melissa Koenig
August 25, 2023

Former President Donald Trump’s official mugshot sent social media reeling late Thursday and early Friday, as liberal users mocked the 2024 Republican front-runner’s arrest and conservatives rallied around the ex-commander-in-chief.

Trump was booked in Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail on Thursday evening, receiving the label of prisoner No. PO1135809 before he was fingerprinted and had his mugshot taken.

The 77-year-old scowled at the camera while wearing his signature blue suit and bright red tie.

Soon after, hashtags such as #TrumpMugshot and #OrangeIsTheNewOrange began trending on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Some users poked fun at jail records reporting Trump as weighing 215 pounds and having “blonde or strawberry” hair, with one meme showing Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama laughing at the former president’s self-reported dimensions.
