U.S. President, Donald J. Trump and Russian President, Vladimir Putin, met in Helsinki, Finland on Monday in what Twitter regarded as a catastrophe.
The summit between the leaders of two of the largest countries in the world influenced Twitter's trending hashtags: #TrumpPutin, #TrumpTreason and #TreasonSummit among others.
Naturally, Twitter vented their anger, frustration and confusion the only way they know how - with jokes and memes.
Donald Trump, The President Of The United States, just on live tv, said he believed #VladimirPutin over Americas numerous intel. If you still support Trump after this, you can't call yourself a patriot. Because you're not.#TreasonSummit#TrumpPutin— Sherri Shavon❄️❄️ (@sherrishavon) July 16, 2018

One of Twitter's fan favourites seemed to be #PutinPuppet, to mimic the control Putin had over U.S. President, Donald Trump.
Although a mass of new images and memes were created exclusively for this subject, Tweeters weren't afraid to bring back some of the ol' faithful memes for this occasion.

Some Tweeters mixed the memes to create a puppet skit associated with press conferences President Trump had during his campaign race.
