Here Are Some Memes About How Badly The Iowa Caucus Went

The Fyre Fest of the 2020 campaign.

Posted on February 4, 2020, at 11:25 a.m. ET

Wellllllllllllllllllp. The 2020 campaign has officially begun, and it's not off to a great start.

The Iowa caucuses took place Monday night in 1,682 precincts around the state and 87 satellite locations around the country and the world. But, as the night wore on, it became clear that things weren't going quite as planned.

The Iowa Democratic Party revamped the process for 2020, taking a number of steps to make the caucuses more transparent and accessible, including a new app for precincts to report results. They did so after a contentious outcome in 2016, when Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders finished neck and neck. But by late Monday, precinct chairs were struggling to report results to the party, and the party announced that the results would be delayed until sometime Tuesday.

By Tuesday morning, there still weren't any results.

my god how did I not wake up to Iowa Caucus results

People compared it to the disastrous Fyre Festival.

And suggested that Fyre Festival founders Billy McFarland and Ja Rule might have actually organized the caucuses too.

A bunch of people had ideas about what had gone wrong.

The notorious app that crashed from the Iowa Caucus. #IowaCaucas #IowaCaucuses

Sucks that this was the dude in charge of counting the votes. https://t.co/hZ29sncqAX

In another bizarre twist of fate, the Iowa Caucus has been quarantined, due to a rare case of moronovirus.

Without results, people came up with all different kinds of ways to figure out who won.

The DNC is bringing in someone who they feel is good at predicting outcomes to decide the winner of the Caucus. #IowaCaucas

This is how they should settle the Iowa Caucus

just saying, tulsi would win if the iowa caucus was conducted battle royale style

BREAKING: celestial toad confirms caucus results “lost to sands of time”

Naturally, there were a bunch of conspiracy theories. (There is no evidence of hacking or interference in the caucus by Russia or anyone else.)

BREAKING: Putin says he will release the results of the Iowa caucus in exchange for some real estate in Ukraine.

And some unexpected "winners" were declared.

The Iowa caucus results are delayed because they don’t want us to know the truth... All your delegates belong to JEB!

BREAKING NEWS!!! MeanCat has decided that he has won the Iowa Caucus cuz why not.

Congratulations to the Caucus City Chiefs and the great state of Illinois! https://t.co/kw6wKzwnIM

Somebody, congratulate Willis Brown, whoever he is.

Thank you everyone . I can’t believe I won the Iowa caucus. It’s just so surreal.👊😜

Some people were here for the drama.

Me: I’d never watch the Iowa caucus. Me when the Iowa caucus goes off the rails:

A lot of people were straight-up cOnFuSed.

It's a really bad day to not know what the fuck a caucus is

the most confusing thing about the whole iowa caucus thing how anyone let it happen more than once

But most people agreed that whatever had happened, it wasn't good!

I don’t like this 3rd phase of the Iowa Caucus

No matter what the results though, get ready, because New Hampshire is next.

Dear #IACaucus, Don’t worry. We got this. Signed. #FITN @nhdems @nhgop
