Twitter users immediately recognized the celebrated quote by Sarah Connor from The Terminator film franchise: 'There is no fate but what we make for ourselves'.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar addressed the nation with updates on the government's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday. He quoted a line from one of James Cameron's famous Terminator movies, while announcing the national lockdown in Ireland in a way netizens could not have missed. 

Some users made further parallels with the famous movie franchise, comparing the pandemic with the soulless artificial intelligence network from Terminator, Skynet. 

​Some compared the PM with Linda Hamilton, the actress who portrayed Sara Connor in the movie. 

​There are currently at least 2121 infections and 22 fatalities in Ireland due to the deadly disease, according to the most recent data.
