Presidential bellend Donald Trump has had a very bad week. Old footage has now emerged of him boasting about using his fame to grope women. “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful [women],” he said. “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. I don’t even wait.” He added: “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything – grab them by the pussy.”
Surprisingly chilling words for a man who’s so full of hot air. He was also extremely fucking weird in the third Presidential debate (the fourth and final one will be held on October 19), which saw him lock horns with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump played his chauvinistic behaviour down as “locker room talk” before banging on about ISIS, which seemed at best a non-sequitur and at worst shameless fear-mongering to shift the focus from his own douchebaggery.
Still, the internet found something to laugh at in the face of all this misery. There was, of course, a mash-up that made it seem like Trump and Clinton were singing Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes’ ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’ from the film Dirty Dancing, plus a host of meme-tastic, music-themed parodies of the whole sorry affair. Here are 10 of the best.

A disclaimer: Trump and Clinton have never told each other that “I Got You Babe”.
The American Idol one

Which is fitting, since this whole thing is a sob story.

Joke – there’s nothing classy about this debate.
The one with Ken Bone

Ken Bone: the man who asked a serious question about climate change but became a meme because has a funny name and wears a bright red sweater.
Never change, the internet.
