Donald Trump made history as the first former president to pose for a mugshot following his arrest related to his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.
The image’s swift proliferation across various social media platforms has ignited a wave of reactions and discussions, prompting a range of hashtags like #TrumpMugshot and #OrangeIsTheNewOrange.
Users across the political spectrum offered humorous takes on the mugshot, with some poking fun at Trump’s distinctive hairstyle and others speculating about his hypothetical ‘prison wardrobe.’
Some users noticed that Trump’s weight was listed at 215 pounds, a figure that had been pre-reported, with some in disbelief at the revelation.
Instagram and TikTok witnessed an inundation of short videos and image-based memes, with Trump’s face playfully inserted into famous movie scenes set behind bars.
The memes ranged from lighthearted humor to biting political satire, eliciting a range of reactions and engagement from online audiences.
Some politicians like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene rallied behind Trump, using the mugshot as a political rallying cry, accusing the DA of political motives.
Even before the official photo was released, fake Trump mugshots had already gone viral, adding to the anticipation surrounding the image.
Trump was arrested for the fourth time this year and went through the booking process, which included having his height and weight recorded and receiving a prisoner identification number.
After spending less than 20 minutes inside the Fulton County jail, Trump was released on bail, leaving behind a historic booking photo that will be remembered for years to come.
