Great Day at the White House refers to a popular tweet by United States President Donald Trump, who tweeted "A great day at the White House" on the same day his Chief of Staff fired his White House communications director and the Washington Post reported that Trump dictated his son's misleading statement on meeting with a Russian lawyer.
On July 31st, 2017, President Donald Trump tweeted  "A great day at the White House!" The tweet (shown below) received more than 22,000 retweets and 101,000 likes.
However, despite Trump's statement, many online were quick to point out that on the day Trump posted that, his Chief of Staff John Kelly had already fired his controversial director of communication Anthony Scaramucci, after just 10 days of employment. Things continued to get worse that day as news of the Russiagate scandal broke that he had dictated a false statement regarding his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer on his son's behalf. The latter could be a potentially legal issue.
Shortly after Trump tweeted, his statements became the subject of mockery on Twitter. One user, @EmmyA2, posted a variation of This Is Fine, replacing the titular line with Trump's tweet. The post (show below) received more than 24,500 retweets and 62,000 likes in less than 24 hours. The image was also posted to Reddit  in the /r/funny subreddit, where it received more than 970 points (86% upvoted) and 50 comments.
Throughout the evening, people on Twitter continued to mock the president's statement with jokes generally revolving around Trump's supposed ignorance towards the many problems surrounding the White House. Twitter published a Moments page to archive the response to the tweet.
On Reddit, Trump's tweet became a popular subject of conversation appearing in several subreddits, including /r/politics, /r/The_Donald (where it received more than 5,000 points), /r/EnoughTrumpSpam, /r/PoliticalHumor and more.
Several news outlets covered the tweet, and the ironic response to it, including The Daily Beast, Business Insider, The Hill and more.
