People Are Taking The Piss Out Of Trump And Farage In A Gold Lift

    Farage is the first UK politician to meet with America's president-elect since Trump's victory last Tuesday.

    UKIP leader and Brexit figurehead Nigel Farage has become the first British politician to meet with Donald Trump since he became president-elect.

    Farage, who vocally supported Trump throughout the America's presidential campaign, met with him in New York on Saturday.

    "It was a great honour to spend time with @realDonaldTrump. He was relaxed and full of good ideas. I'm confident he will be a good President," Farage tweeted, accompanied by a picture of him and Trump in a golden lift.

    Especially pleased at @realDonaldTrump's very positive reaction to idea that Sir Winston Churchill's bust should be put back in Oval Office.

    Farage said that Trump had strong support for a UK-US special relationship. "This is a man with whom we can do business," he wrote. UK prime minister Theresa May and foreign secretary Boris Johnson are yet to meet with Trump, but have both publicly issued their congratulations.

    Farage added that a bust of Winston Churchill, which was reportedly removed from the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, would be returned.

    People on Twitter are somewhat taken with the glitzy image that man-of-the-people Farage chose to confirm his special relationship with Trump.

    Activists Trump and Farage defeat the elites.

    Well done Britain and the USA. You've taken back control. You've shown those out of touch elites a thing or two.… https://t.co/K1c7FbDp5E

    Others wondered what might come of said relationship.

    Trump and Farage decide how to unlock the Gates of Hell with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.

    It's a moment that will go down in history.

    You just know that one day this picture will be on the front of a book called "The Decline of Western Civilisation"

    Jokes were cracked.

    What's gold, goes up and down and has two arseholes?

    Some found the meeting quite cinematic.

    This looks like the scene in the horror movie before they open the crypt that’s been sealed for thousands of years.… https://t.co/4JknNtwoY0

    Literally looking like Dumb and Dumber here. https://t.co/YL9N8jND8U

    But the real question was whether they could live up to the Obama and Biden memes.

    Farage: Yeah our meme will be as successful as the Biden/Obama meme, don't you think? Trump: Of course, I have meme… https://t.co/nUMdWX661D

    So there you go...

    When Willy Wonka and one of his Ooompa Loompas go BAD.... #trump #farage #greatgoldelevator

    I'd love to see a pic of Nigel Farage and Donald Trump in a golden elevator this morning, but who'd have one of those?
