Donald Trump's Empty Chairs is a series of image macros featuring United States President Donald Trump seated between two empty chairs. Online, people joked about how lonely the president appeared.
On November 28th, 2017, following a tweet  from President Trump taunting them, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Miniority Leader Nancy Pelosi canceled a meeting with the president. Trump continued with the meeting, seating himself between the two empty chairs reserved for Pelosi and Schumer. CSPAN tweeted a video of the president between the chairs later that day. The tweet (shown below) received more than 400 retweets and 900 likes in less than 24 hours.
Shortly after the meeting aired, Twitter users began captioning the photograph. Late nite host Desus Nice captioned the photo "Twitter help! My son threw a party and no one in his class showed up. Can we send him cards or something?" The post (shown below, left) received more than 1,700 retweets and 6,300 likes in 24 hours. HuffPost reporter Eliot Nelson tweeted (shown below, center) "Oh God, Trump is going to ask the empty chairs their favorite thing about his presidency, isn’t he." New York Times writer Dave Itzkoff tweeted (shown below, right), "ME: I have two friends TWO FRIENDS: the new season of Stranger Things wasn't as good as the original ME:"
Other users photoshopped the image. Twitter user @rd522 photoshopped the Christ Christie Beach Picture into the photograph. The post (shown below) received more than 150 retweets and 340 likes in 24 hours.
