In a speech about Russian interference with the American society, U.S Senator Richard Burr referenced the old but gold meme, ‘This is fine’.
This meme depicts a dog sitting in a burning house with a cup of coffee, saying to itself that ‘This is fine’.
U.S Senator Burr likens this meme to the American society where he believes they must no longer be naive to the interference of the Russians as it is no longer an ‘if’ but the reality is that it is happening right now.
Burr says that it is no longer ‘fine’ to be sitting in this ‘burning house’ and doing nothing.
I guess he is trying to communicate with the younger audience with this.
I would say this has definitely captured our attention.
