"We are now stuck in the Upside Down. Right is wrong, up is down, black is white."

Washington representative David Cicilline took to the House floor on Feb. 16 with a visual aide and a handful of metaphors drawing the comparison between President Trump, the current political climate, and the hit sci-fi television show Stranger Things. Really. 

Cicilline used the extended metaphor to call out all the oxymorons that have occurred in Trump’s first few weeks as President.

The representative was accompanied by a visual aide with a twist on the show’s title card. 

"Trump Things" is the latest installment in the now increasingly popular trend of using visual aides alongside statements, something that has incurred some mocking by SNL.

Whether or not you think it’s the most apt comparison to make, it’s certainly generating buzz on the internet— driven at least in part by the popularity of Stranger Things. 

Some more complimentary than others. 

Either way, his message is reaching platforms that it might not have without bringing up America’s lovable-band-of-misfits du jour.
