    While Mueller’s findings were celebrated by some, others insisted that the special counsel’s report must be released in full to the public and urged people not to jump to conclusions until then.

    The long-awaited summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which was released by Attorney General William Barr, has sent ripples across social media as all sides of the political spectrum

    News of the fact that Mueller’s investigation did not find any evidence of alleged collusion between Trump’s campaign staff and Russia, and that Mueller’s team has no plans to issue any new indictments, left the president’s supporters cheering and gleefully mocking their detractors.

    ​A number of people also saw this occasion as a perfect meme-making opportunity, getting creative in their mockery of the "collusion theory" proponents.

    ​Some also were quick to recall the memes caused by Trump’s detractors, joking about how they look now in the wake of Mueller’s revelations.

    ​Meanwhile, many of those who were apparently hoping for the special counsel to uncover some damning facts about Trump quickly switched gears and began insisting that it’s not over until Mueller’s report gets fully disclosed to the public.

    ​There were also those who pointed that while Mueller lacked evidence to prosecute obstruction of justice, he did not exonerate Trump either.
