Donald Trump has spent years calling into question the legitimacy of former President Barack Obama, but he and his family can’t seem to stop “borrowing” creative inspiration from the Obama camp. Maybe Michelle and Barack used all the “cool” reserves while in the White House and there’s just nothing left for the Trumps.

Anywho, whenever they seemed to poach the Obamas style the Internet has been at the ready to call foul. Here are four of the best times that social media reminded the Trumps they’re not the Obamas.    

1. Any Crowd Photo Will Do:
Isn’t Twitter Kinda You Thing? Image: Twitter.com/Slate

Donald Trump is so known for voicing his thoughts, concerns, and tirades against Barack Obama on Twitter that everyone was perplexed when he actually used an image of the former President’s 2009 inauguration as his new @POTUS account cover photo. Many on social media were quick to point out the glaring oversight and suggest more appropriate images that he could use instead.

President Trump’s inauguration cake was a stunning display of confectionary might. There was only one problem. It was a near identical copy of the cake commissioned for President Obama’s 2009 inauguration celebration. Pastry chef Duff Goldman called out the copy of his handiwork on Twitter but took the candy-coated creative thievery in stride. Goldman tweeted: Remembering a fantastic cake I made is awesome and the chef that re-created it for Trump did a fantastic job. Group hug, y’all. 

That might have been the end of the cakegate, but it turns out the impostor dessert was also fake – as in filled with styrofoam. Talk about a bad designer knock-off. Is there anything worst than fake cake? Twitter weighed in.  

3. #BringBackMySpeech, Seriously: 

Ok, that time Melania Trump plagiarized Michelle Obama was objectively much worse than stealing a cake design. After it was discovered that Mrs. Trump had generously lifted parts of her 2016 RNC speech from Mrs. Obama, her husband’s team went through various stages of denial, media blaming and internal finger pointing. In the end, Melania’s speech writer took the blame for the speech heist, but not before the Internet had some fun.

4. The People Won’t Follow:

So, Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey took full blame for this Trump transition follower fail, but it’s a clear reminder that Obama’s supporters are not here for Trump. Thousands of Twitter users called foul after finding they were automatically following Trump on @POTUS even after they had unfollowed the account when it transferred from Obama or we’re never following it at all. Even with the apology from Dorsey, people were quick voice their discontent with the situation.
