Weibo users have been having a field day with the US presidential campaign. We’ve picked out a handful of posts.

  1. Debate? It’s karaoke time!

Trump (red text): Do you understand my heart?

Hillary: (white text): “I long for a real relationship..”

Someone turned the interjections from the presidential debates into a karaoke duet meme based on a famous Jackie Chan song.

2. “Free meal if Trump wins”

An American-style diner in Changsha city, Hunan province, is kindly offering a free “Presidential” set meal if Trump wins the election. Customers simply have to share a “check-in” on social media to redeem their prize. There’s no mention of what’s on offer if Hillary wins.

3. Inspiring China’s youth

The caption on this Weibo post reads: “Is there any reason for young people not to work hard, when they see the example of these two elderly citizens fighting furiously for a job? This is the most inspirational thing I have come across in years.”

4. Prediction time

This meme takes a memorable line from the classic British sitcom Yes, Minister.

5. Telling it like it is.

“Actually I like Father Trump. At the end of the day, he won’t be the president of our country. Putin probably shares the same thought.”
