  • Former US president Donald Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury. 
  • The news produced many memes, from “Succession” references to Gwyneth Paltrow ski trial comparisons.
  • Here are some of the best memes of Trump’s indictment. 

A Manhattan grand jury indicted Donald Trump on Thursday, making him the first former US president to be charged with a crime.

And while it’s currently unclear what charges Trump faces, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office had been investigating Trump’s personal and business finances, including a payment Michael Cohen — Trump’s former personal attorney turned nemesis — made to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels just days before the 2016 election.

While the news of the indictment stirred Trump, his allies, his opponents, and the media into a frenzy, it also spurred some top-quality memes across social media. 

From references to the popular show “Succession” to Gwyneth Paltrow ski trial comparisons, here are the best memes of Trump’s indictment.

Some memes made comparisons to Gwyneth Paltrow’s ski trial 

Paltrow was found not liable in a case surrounding a 2016 ski crash with a retired optometrist, and was awarded $1 in damages, on the same day as Trump’s indictment.
