On March 30, 2023, a grand jury in New York voted to indict former president Donald Trump on multiple charges. During his initial arraignment, the jury was focused on a hush money payment that Trump associate Michael Cohen previously made to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 election.

The payment was intended to silence Daniels after she claimed that she and Trump had an affair in 2006. Cohen was believed to have paid her $130,000 of his own money, which he was later reimbursed for by Trump.

After Trump's indictment was announced, the former president released a statement regarding the verdict.

"This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history...The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to ‘Get Trump,’ but now they’ve done the unthinkable - indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference... I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden... we are going to throw every last one of these Crooked Democrats out of office so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Joseph Tacopina, who was one of Trump's attorneys, told CBS News at the time via text that Trump's legal team expects him to surrender to authorities "likely Tuesday," following discussions with the Manhattan DA's office until late Thursday night.

While we wait for that, let's take a look at some memes as the internet clearly couldn't hold back from making cracks at this situation. I mean, how often does a U.S. president get indicted?

Several months after his initial arraignment, the meme train on the former president is still rolling.

As outlets like NBC News report that he faces over seven counts of false statements and "conspiracy to obstruct."
