After Melania Trump became the butt of jokes for her Christmas photos and paved way for some hilarious memes for sharing a laugh with Barack Obama, the Trump wife was trending yet again on May 22. The FLOTUS became the talk of the town following reports of a sinkhole being spotted on the lawn of the White House.
According to a White House reporter, the sinkhole appeared on the North Lawn, which is right outside the press briefing room. The hole has been there for almost a week now and is growing deeper with every passing day.
The update from the White House triggered a series of jokes on social media platforms about the First Lady, suggesting that it is Melania's failed attempt at digging an escape tunnel.
"Melania's escape tunnel has been discovered," a user said. "Y'all just gonna expose Melania's escape route like dat?" tweeted a Twitter user.
"The growing sinkhole at the White House is a. Hell saying welcome b. A deep state passageway c. Escape route for Melania that could work d. Javanka's graceful exit e. The Swamp engulfing the criminals f. All of the above g. None of the above," added another.
"Melania was trying to tunnel her way to freedom and misjudged the distance. Now we know where she has been the last two weeks #sinkhole," a tweet read.
Looks like Melania's escape tunnel has collapsed.https://t.co/4gC87QRuAJ— Sher Watts Spooner (@SherSpooner) May 23, 2018
President Trump has commented on the recent activity on the White House lawn, calling the sinkhole 'tremendous, and believe me, I know tremendous holes."— Yvette (@TheSciBabe) May 22, 2018
Melania responded as well, saying "of course it's a sinkhole, and why would you be suspicious of this shovel I'm holding?"
My escape tunnel one foot short :( https://t.co/qNWrWZWRNn— Rogue Melania?? (@RogueFirstLady) May 22, 2018
Melania's tunnel...just a bit short. https://t.co/Cx1kLYpxuA— Carl Petersheim (@CarlPetersheim) May 22, 2018
Even Jimmy Kimmel couldn't resist taking a dig at the sinkhole-Melania situation:
Others excluded Melania but delivered some hilarious memes:

The #sinkhole isn't from Me. It's from Satan. It's his way of telling Trump the contract is expiring.— God (@TheTweetOfGod) May 23, 2018
The sinkhole outside the White House is still less destructive than the asshole inside the White House. https://t.co/MfLFa5vQU6— OhNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) May 22, 2018
There is something wonderfully poetic about a #sinkhole appearing on the @WhiteHouse grounds. I've already seen tweets that it could be because Earth is angry about @EPAScottPruitt. Or because all the WH leaks might've created a fissure. Keep 'em comin', America.— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) May 23, 2018
