On Saturday, the DNC gave Twitter users the opportunity to download an image of Trump’s face underneath the Beyoncé lyric “Boy Bye” from the singer-songwriter’s 2016 hit “Sorry.”
People who pinged the five-digit number with the term “BOYBYE” were also signed up to receive “periodic text messages from the DNC,” per the small print.
But many tweeters demanded that the DNC “do better” and predicted Trump would win reelection in 2020 if it continued campaigning in the same way.

We want universal healthcare!
How about hot sauce in bag!
We want free college!
How about this sick beat!
Climate change will kill us if rising white nationalism doesn’t!

To those who argue “Dem leaders have a secret plan” and “trust them, they’re playing the long game,” I submit the tweet below. https://t.co/FXfTzJcHjV

First of all this wallpaper is ugly.
Second of all, Beyoncé didn’t rise again on the third day to be plagiarized like this.
Third of all, fix your life.
Fourth of all, less meme-ing, more impeaching. https://t.co/sqAIjVN3r0
