President Donald Trump’s gigantic handwriting is cracking up Twitter — again.
Years after the president’s all-caps penmanship became a meme back in 2017 when he signed his first executive order as commander-in-chief, Trump’s blocky scribbling was memed once more on Wednesday when he read a statement using handwritten notes.
Trump was responding to testimony by U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland in the impeachment hearings investigating whether he attempted to use his power as president for his own political benefit in the upcoming 2020 election.
“I WANT NOTHING. I WANT NOTHING. I WANT NO QUID PRO QUO,” the note read. Twitter was quick to pick up on the erratic looking note.
“This reads like a lost Kurt Cobain lyric,” Washington Post opinions columnist Helaine Olen joked on Twitter.

“(I) can only read this in the voice of Robert Durst whispering into a hot mic,” another user, Brandy Jensen, said.

Trump was speaking to reporters Wednesday afternoon after Sondland testified in Washington, D.C. that he pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden at the president’s request. He also said that “everyone was in the loop,” including Vice President Mike Pence and other top officials in the Trump Administration.
The president and other top officials within the administration have yet to agree to be questioned on Capitol Hill as part of the impeachment hearings.
