Twitter lit up late Tuesday night to mock former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, who delivered a stilted response to President Trump’s speech from a coffeehouse.
Beshear appeared to be picked to respond because he’s from a working-class state that Democrats are now desperately looking to win back.
But several Twitter users made fun of Beshear’s age, and the group of people sitting behind him. Several made fun of the frozen group of people around him.

I think Beshear is talking in front of a green screen because those people are not moving.— Soft Coup Lizzy (@StarChamberMaid) March 1, 2017
Beshear joined by a very white audience in his diner. https://t.co/ePgwAbRUXc— Soft Coup Lizzy (@StarChamberMaid) March 1, 2017
