Eight consecutive days of rain has led to a flood of sarcasm on Twitter as a sinkhole formed on the damp lawn right at the US president’s doorstep following a week of bad weather. To conceal the mishap, the groundkeepers put a board on it and surrounded the spot with orange cones. The National Park Service has taken charge over the matter, with its press service tweeting, that the phenomenon poses no risk.
The pit appeared not far from the entrance to the White House’s briefing room, making it only a matter of time before reporters shared pictures of the growing sinkhole.
An avalanche of jokes on Twitter, mocking Donald Trump and his presidency, followed suit, as hashtag #sinkhole turned into another brand mark of Donald Trump’s White House along with #maga and #covfefe.
Many couldn’t avoid the hell allusions.

There were those who chose allusions to Trump’s campaign promises “Drain the swamp” of the White House…

…and thanking Mother Earth for vigilance.
