Brazilians Are Making Memes Out Of Their President After She Was Impeached

Brazilian social media is out of control right now.

On Thursday, Brazil’s senate voted to impeach President Dilma Rousseff. Rousseff will be suspended from the presidency and will face a trial. And vice-president Michel Temer, the 75-year-old head of the PMDB party, is to assume office while the trial takes place.

Here's a good explainer of what caused Brazil's current crisis.

Both protests and celebrations are breaking out throughout the country and Brazilian social media is inundated with memes about the impeachment, like this hashtag called #SeEuFosseADilma or #IfIWasDilma.

"#IfIWereDilma I would go down the ramp of the Planalto Palace on a skateboard giving the middle finger to everyone"

"#IfIWereDilma I would change the wifi passwords of the Planalto Palace, leave the fridge empty, cars without gas, and cancel Netflix"

Rousseff isn't the only one getting memed to hell. People are also photoshopping the new logo for the Brazilian government that was released by the temporary president, Michel Temer.

"The good thing about the new government logo is that Aécio [president of the Brazilian Social Democracy Party] can use it later"

Twitter: @G1Iouco

"The new image for Temer’s government is out"

Twitter: @alechandracomix

"Watch out, the new image for the Temer government wants to kill Mario and keep the princess"

But the roughest one, being tweeted by folks who really didn't like President Rousseff is the extra sassy #TchauQuerida or #ByeHoney hashtag.
