Hillary Vs Trump: Who Has The Dankest Memes?

Dank memes might be the trippin’ point of the 2016 Presidential election

by Justin O'Connell

Amid an intense election that will change the course of its history, it’s good to see the United States still has a sense of humor.

As Presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump star in an election which will impact for decades foreign policy, marijuana legalization, gay and trans-sexual rights, inner city violence, and a massive prison population - leaving untouched virtually every economic, civil and political reality affecting our daily lives.

With all that being said, it seems the world can take comfort in memes.

This election hasn’t made US citizens anymore confident about the nation’s future.(We have some advice for that).

Many are left unsure whether either candidate is a good choice. When MERRY JANE travelled to Philadelphia to cover the Democratic National Convention, this is exactly what we learned as voters expressed Bernstalgia over issues like inner city violence and cannabis policy.

If there is any reprieve this election cycle, it’s in memes. And the US presidential election is producing some dank memes. If you’re properly medicated, they’ll leave you straight up in stitches!

Below check out the Mike Diva directed Hillary Clinton ad campaign. It’s dope! Ms. Clinton receives criticism for her dry and political-ese drenched talking points. Diva knows hows to drive home her points for her. I had to take a double-take to know it’s not Hillary herself.

Whether it’s education reform, a foreign policy so good you’ll want to Harlem Shake, and an end to grumpy cats thanks to a sound economy,  this irie version of an ad campaign might be the trippin’ point of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Watch now!

But the dank 2016 presidential election memes don’t stop there!

This viral Japanese-themed Donald Trump memes takes to a colorful Trump dominated land where he takes on his true oompa-loompa purple hue and becomes President of the World. The video, also directed by Diva, portrays Mr. Trump as a dictator, militarist and even a bit of a pervert with a cult of personality to exploit.
 

The Kogal protagonist falls in love with the 2016 Republican Presidential candidate, who is shown in the video making a “suck this” motion with his hips and arms, as well as a Nazi salute. In the video Trump builds a wall and ultimately destroys the world.

Trump was the inspiration for Diva, who kept a photo of Trump next to his desk for the month-and-a-half he worked on the Trump video and calls the Presidential candidate “adorable.” Diva can imagine a President Trump.

“When Papa Trumpo raises the wall and, you know, unites the world - except for the Mexicans,” Diva imitates political doublespeak.

In recent election news, Hillary Clinton released her 2016 tax return and called for Donald Trump - a self-proclaimed billionaire who sometimes receives criticism for over-exaggerating his net worth and overseas bank accounts - to do the same. In the meanwhile, Donald Trump suggested the 2016 election might be rigged.

So, which Presidential Candidate has the dankest memes? Let us know in the comments! And stay tuned to MERRY JANE for more election and cannabis news.
