The Mueller hearing today wasn’t even close to over when the memes started appearing, because that’s how we cope with the absurdity of the world now. While Republicans attempt to convince themselves that Robert Mueller’s testimony to the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees has been a “disaster” for Democrats, everyone else is watching an irritated, no-nonsense, and hard-of-hearing man field absurd questions and rants in what is simultaneously a very serious and hilarious manner.

Okay Chuck.

Some of the best humorous moments to come out of the hearing have been Mueller’s deadpan one-liners in response to Republicans ranting and yelling for political points, such as when Rep. Louis Gohmert went on for five minutes and Mueller just said: “I take your question.”

Because in five minutes, Gohmert didn’t actually pose a single real question to the former special counsel. Now people are wondering if these four words are going to be the new passive-aggressive response to any demand.

This alone has become its own meme, resulting in a treasure trove of hilarious tweets:

While Republicans freak out about Mueller asking them to repeat questions, others have noticed that said questions have a lot of confusing double negatives.

Aside from those specifics, people are finding any humor they can out of what has become the definition of a political circus.
