The presidential inauguration of Donald Trump gave rise to numerous memes even as it was broadcasted live all over the world. But former US President George Bush who was present at the ceremony almost stole the show while trying to tame his rogue poncho.
As it began to drizzle while Trump was giving his speech, many in the audience came prepared to keep themselves dry in the open air ground. While some like Michelle Obama, Jill Biden, and even First Lady Melania Trump were seen with bubble umbrellas, others – like George Bush – had translucent ponchos.
However Bush apparently had some difficulties in handling his poncho and the Internet couldn’t help but laugh.

I think George W. Bush vs. Rain Poncho should have had more extensive coverage than the inauguration address, but that's just me.— Michelle Milliken (@MichelleyM) January 20, 2017
