Twitter removes Nickelback “Photograph” meme shared by President Trump


Twitter has removed a take on the Nickelback "Photograph meme" that happened to be shared by the President of the United States.

The meme uses a snippet from the song's video, with the titular photograph Chad Kroeger presents to camera replaced with another image.

In the case of the just-removed post passed on by President Trump, Kroger is seen "presenting" a real photo of Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and a board member of a Ukrainian gas company a golf outing. "LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH," Trump captioned it.

Hunter Biden's connection to -- and lucrative board member appointment by -- the Ukrainian company Burisma, have dogged his Democrat front-runner dad, with the New York Times and other outlets floating the notion it was a conflict of interest for Joe Biden, who at the time was the vice president.

President Obama's VP successfully "threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country's top prosecutor," wrote The Times. While that prosecutor was "accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office," the eventually fired prosecutor general was reportedly investigating Burisma Holdings -- which at times paid Hunter Biden as much as $50,000 a month.

However, Democrats in lockstep opposing President Trump recently launched an impeachment inquiry, following a whistleblower who accuses Mr. Trump of asking Ukraine's new president to investigate the Biden/Burisma connection, as Biden is now his 2020 campaign rival. 

It's not clear who ordered the Nickelback meme taken down.
