There's A Controversial New Meme And Barron Trump Is At The Center Of It

The contentious political divide that has gripped our nation in recent times can make it pretty tough to find common grounds on even some of the simplest things. Comedy is one area that comes to mind, as what’s funny to those that possess a certain political viewpoint is offensive to those that have a differing take, and vice versa. As with most things political, there simply has to be some kind of middle ground so that we can all stop pulling our hair out. As Heavy shares, it looks like that’s what this series of memes is attempting to accomplish, but you’ll have to check them out for yourself to see if it’s mission accomplished.

The memes depict Vice President Mike Pence and Barron Trump in the alternate universe of the 1960s cartoon “Johnny Quest.” Pence assumes the role of ‘Race Bannon,’ who essentially serves as a guardian of sorts to Johnny at the behest of another series character, ‘Dr. Benton C. Quest.’ Barron is Johnny Quest himself, and the pair finds themselves in all sorts of unusual situations.

For starters, the meme entitled ‘Mike Pence and Barron Trump defend the Dakota pipeline’ shows a scene in which Bannon and Quest are ducking for cover from a tribe of Indians that wants them nowhere around. While it’s a pretty touchy subject, the meme is somewhat able to show both perspectives, and as such, allow for chuckles from both sides.

Another meme, entitled ‘Mike Pence and Barron Trump fight off the illegal aliens’ shows a scene from the cartoon in which Bannon and Quest are fighting off some aliens from outer space. This one is a little tougher to pull off, but if you look past the contentiousness of the topic for just a second, you can see how viewers of both sides might be able to crack at least a little bit of a smile. You can check these and the rest out for yourself to see if these memes hit the mark - or fall incredibly flat.
