It's a day that half of the United States had anticipated for four years, following Donald Trump's 2016 presidential win.

Trump's most loyal supporters weren't among those who had created memes or gifs to mark the end of his presidency and life in the White House, but there are plenty nonetheless.

It's almost a rite of passage for those who don't support the incumbent president to celebrate him leaving the White House for good. Or, at least, for four years or so.

There are tons of memes about Trump leaving the White House.

One of the memes floating around about Trump moving out of the White House involves someone carrying a gold framed painting. Only, in all of the iterations of the image, the painting has a different picture in it. In one case, someone added an old photo of Trump lounging on a couch in what looks like a tennis outfit. It gives off serious "Draw me like one of your French girls" vibes.

Another version of the same meme shows the frame with an edited photo of Trump's face in red, white, and blue paint and a furry horned headdress. It's not unlike the get-up people saw on one of the now infamous U.S. Capitol rioters. It may not be real, but it's what some people were just itching for during Trump's moving day.

Is there a deadline for the incumbent president to move out of the White House?

Even though election day takes place every four years in November, the sitting president has plenty of time to actually get his or her affairs in order to move out of the White House. Since they are still the president for a couple of more months, they are entitled to stay in the house until the following January.

For Trump, he needed to leave the White House by Jan. 20, 2021, which is when his term would officially end. It's also the date President-elect Joe Biden was scheduled to be sworn in, which makes sense. There were rumors ahead of Trump's official move-out day that he might refuse to physically move out, but that didn't end up being the case in the end.

Where is Trump going to live after he's out of office?

Usually, an outgoing president will leave Washington, D.C. to start their life post-White House somewhere closer to the city or state they originally moved from. Trump reportedly plans to move to Florida to enjoy retirement as so many 70+ people do. OK, maybe not exactly the same way, but it definitely gives off those vibes.

Some have speculated that Trump will run for president again once Biden's first term is over, but by that point, Trump may have moved on to other professional endeavors. Or, he'll spend the next four years perfecting his short game on the golf course. Whatever his plans may be, 2021 saw his official removal from office and the spicy memes from those who wished to commemorate the day online.

No one expected the White House and D.C. politics to change overnight once Trump moved out. There's no denying that solid change under Biden's presidency would take tons of work. But for those who had voted against Trump in his 2020 bid for a second term were ready to see him move out, with the memes and gifs to back that up.
