Trump Is Just Claiming Things as His Own on Twitter So the Internet Claimed Oscar Isaac
Donald Trump is not taking his potential election loss well. Not only has he continued to double down on lies, saying that this election was stolen from him despite the fact that Republicans put in so many roadblocks to stop people from voting. Last night though, it was taken to a new level when Trump decided to just tweet out that he “claimed” four states.
We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers) the State of Georgia, and the State of North Carolina, each one of which has a BIG Trump lead. Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact,…..

So, as things tend to in 2020, Trump’s claim instantly became a meme. But what was especially hilarious, as I claimed Baby Yoda and a Sebastian Stan photoshoot myself, was the majority of the internet coming together to claim Oscar Isaac as their own, and honestly, love that for us all.
I hereby claim Oscar Isaac and Keanu Reeves

I have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, that I am banging Chris Pine (who won’t allow legal observers) Scott Moir and Oscar Isaac, all of whom are SUPER into me. Additionally, I hereby claim a common law marriage to Bruce Springsteen if, in fact… pic.twitter.com/H18JpVTwLS

Is our collective love over Oscar Isaac the one thing that can unite us all? Probably. I would definitely agree to a world where we all just talked about our love of Oscar Isaac.
