1. On Friday, Jan. 20, Donald Trump was officially sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
2. The real-life inauguration inspired some to tweet about everyone’s favorite fictional political comedy, Veep.
Happy Inauguration Day. #Veep
— Veep (@VeepHBO)
3. A lot of people used photos of Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Veep’s main character, Selina Meyer.
When you wish this woman was actually president! #selinameyer #veep

Probably the reaction some Americans are having to #ElectionDay right now. #Veep #SelinaMeyer
— Andrew Baker (@andybaker85)
6. And expressed their feelings about Trump’s inauguration.
— J.A (@joselitogaarcia)
we’d be way better off with #SelinaMeyer at the helm, honestly. Hell, we might be better off with Gary and the Leviathan.

Life has never felt more like an episode of #Veep
— Dudley Colley (@thecorpo)
9. Others used quotes from the show to describe Vice President Mike Pence, the actual veep.
Now that @mike_pence is officially the veep, we can use all the “Veep” memes to describe his time in office, right? https://t.co/WPQWIIQw8y

11. Hillary Clinton also found her way into the Veep/inauguration day conversation online.

12. As did Michelle Obama.
Just guessing Michelle Obama’s internal monologue right now.

13. Veep prompted lots of jokes.
I think I’ll just get my political news for the next 4 years by watching #Veep over and over.

14. And it looks like the inauguration even inspired some to rewatch the TV show.
Today seems like a good day to start rewatching Veep.
