This is a photo of President Donald Trump speaking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Jan. 28. He was joined in the Oval Office by Vice President Mike Pence and four other dudes who, as of Friday Aug. 18, have all been dismissed from their roles in the Trump administration.

The photo started trending on Twitter on Friday when it was reported that chief strategist Steve Bannon was out, thus completing the circle and leaving Trump and his vice president as the only ones left.

All of the men surrounding VP Pence are now gone.

People had plenty of thoughts about the image.
