A photograph of acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has set social media on fire with mockery and derision. Snapped by a keen-eyed photographer as Mulvaney returned from a surprise trip to Afghanistan with the President, the look of weary resignation on Mulvaney’s face soon became the fodder for a wave of jokes from Twitter users — along with his flag shirt and “Space Force” hat!

Mr. Mulvaney clearly did not have a good Thanksgiving with the President on his cynical and clearly performative effort to pretend he cares about our troops overseas — and his obvious distress hints at the chaos and tumult unfolding behind the scenes as the president grapples with the prospect of his all but certain impeachment.
Here’s a collection of the funniest responses.

The shirt is beyond ridiculous. Anyone who has to parade this on their body is trying to look patriotic. It is like name dropping.
