If there is one thing we will always be able to count on, it is that the internet will continue to be the internet. The internet will continue to be the weird, awkward, hilarious, and bizarre place where just when you think you’ve seen everything – someone posts about something that shocks, amazes, and maybe even disgusts you.
Still don’t believe me? Well, Bustle created a list of hilarious 2017 Inauguration Day tweets and memes that will help you laugh through the pain. And this list? Well, it is just one of many lists with all the hilarious social media posts and pictures floating around the internet about Inauguration Day.
Whether you are or are not supportive of Donald Trump being president of the United States, I think we can all agree the mood is filled with a lot of hate, anger, and sadness right now. There really isn’t as much happiness and laughter as there should be. Fortunately, funny 2017 Inauguration Day tweets can help change that.
After all, if it wasn’t for the internet and social media, phrases like “Bernie Sander’s steel chair” wouldn’t be trending on Google right now, but I’ll get to that a little later. For now, sit back and enjoy some 2017 Inauguration Day tweets intended to lighten the mood. Just consider putting down the beverage for this one. No one wants to shoot their beverage from their nose while laughing.

Crash and Burn
Ending Obamas presidency with Trumps inauguration is like if Gilmore Girls ended with Lorelai & Rory crashing a school bus into Luke's Diner

I think Gilmore Girls’ fans would probably find this one horrifying. There are some things you just don’t joke about. Ever.
Too Big or Too Small?
I can't decide if this crowd seems too small for a presidential inauguration or too big for a 3 Doors Down concert.

People were joking about the size of the Inauguration Day crowd long before the media and Trump’s association started arguing about it.

The phrase Bernie Sanders’ steel chair actually goes back to Election Day. Even then, there were a lot of people on social media hoping Bernie would appear and knock Trump out with his steel chair.
I kinda wish life was like WWE now, and this is where Bernie Sanders' music plays and he runs out with a steel chair #ElectionDay

Waiting for Bernie Sanders to come out from under the ring and hitting someone with a steel chair to claim the presidential belt.

Still waiting for Bernie Sanders to come rushing into the ring with a steel chair. He's old so I assume he's just taking it slow. pic.twitter.com/3KymkRyVLZ

Whether you are pro- or anti-Trump, anyone who is familiar with Harry Potter can appreciate that sometimes a burn is just a burn. This actually wasn’t the only Harry Potter-themed tweet.

She was going for patriotic, but she may have overdone it a bit.

There were all sorts of jokes popping up on social media in relation to George Bush and the plastic poncho he was using to keep dry. Some were questioning why he didn’t just wear a waterproof jacket. Some even thought it looked a little like he was just trapped in the plastic and trying to get out of it. What do you think?
As wack as today is at least we have George Bush tryna put a rain poncho on lmaooo pic.twitter.com/n1rbe91gRx
