When President Donald Trump’s tax counsels released a letter Thursday saying his tax returns don’t reflect income from Russian sources, “with a few exceptions,” Twitter users couldn’t help themselves.

Those “few exceptions” appear to reference at least $100 million Trump collected from Russian people or organizations between 2008 and this March, according to the letter.

Social media did an exceptional job dreaming up a few exceptions of their own, turning it into the political meme of the day. Check out some highlights below.
