New Obama photo inspires last-minute election memes

It’s almost as if President Obama wants the internet to make a meme out of him in the final week of the election. After dialing a wrong number while making calls from a campaign field office in Florida on Sunday, Obama turned to AP photographer Pablo Martinez Monsavis and made this sort-of-smug, sort-of-sassy face. And now, many bloggers and social media users are calling it the best photo of the president, ever.

On Reddit, one user brought back the “Texts from Hillary” meme:

While Buzzfeed Gosling-ified the photo (“Hey Girl...”). The Huffington Post photoshopped it into a parody movie poster for “He’s Just That Into You,” with Obama’s paramours as contested states.

Really, the photo just makes him look tired — very tired. But campaign weariness does not a meme make.
