Trump just responded to ’69’ with ‘Nice!’ — effectively ‘killing’ a popular sexually suggestive meme trend
“The Gallup Poll just announced that 69% of our great citizens expect their finances to improve next year, a 16 year high. Nice!,” the President boasted.
As the social media savvy are already aware, it’s common to reply to mentions of the number 69 — code for a certain sex position — with the word “nice.”
The trend got a boost by a 2016 tweet by then-President Obama about the Senate’s refusal to hold a hearing or vote on his Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.
Obama tweeted out a meme with the figure “69%” in large font, and the message, “A majority of Americans want the Senate to hold hearings and vote on Judge Garland.” Hundreds responded by commenting “nice.”
But the response appears to have been used well before that.
Now, fans of the game have swore off the reply since the current President used it Wednesday morning.
“Trump did a 69/nice tweet, which means I’m never going to do one again,” one user wrote.
Others have declared the gag over. “Trump killing the 69 joke is so on brand it feels impossible,” someone else tweeted.
But some vowed to keep the trend going, claiming Trump has only made it stronger. “Trump making 69 jokes dumber only adds to their power…we must never stop,” a guy who goes as Shaun tweeted.
