There were faces of maximum surprise, anonymous citizens going around the Internet with their television interventions at the doors of Congress, jokes to provoke each other. And even an apocryphal phrase, a resource that always delights meme creators. These have been some of the viral ones from Pedro Sánchez's investiture session:
The PNV verses about Feijóo's seized tractor. The PNV spokesperson, Aitor Esteban, who has supported Sánchez's investiture, has left some rhymes for the popular leader, who this Tuesday remembered the tractor that Mariano Rajoy and Esteban himself talked about in their day.
"Alberto, your tractor
the engine has seized
for using VOX oil"
The PNV spokesperson also generated a lot of conversation with this phrase to Feijóo: "Spain is breaking up... Someday perhaps I will tell what they offered us a couple of months ago."
Pons' surprised face... Esteban González Pons (PP) played gestures during Sánchez's intervention in the first session. Instant meme.
...and the face of Irene Montero picking up Feijóo's glove. "Are you the most feminist Government in history and are you going to dismiss the Minister of Equality?" said the leader of the PP to Sánchez. And the cameras captured this reaction from Montero. Núñez Feijóo has also dedicated some sarcastic words to her and Ione Belarra, leader of Podemos: “Don't give up, there are a few hours left, push for a ministry or two. If possible".
Sánchez's laughter at Feijóo's expense. "You are the first Spaniard to renounce being president if he could be," he joked about Feijóo's statements, in which he said that "he was not president because he did not want to."
The thing about Machado and Ismael Serrano. Space also for a little literature...or something like that. A first allusion to the figure of the Generation of '98, Antonio Machado, was made by Sánchez in his initial intervention: "Today is always still." Later, the PP leader pointed out that he was missing a part: "Today is always still, all of life is now. And now, now is the time to fulfill the promises we made to ourselves. Because yesterday we did not do it, because tomorrow is too late Now." The unexpected twist in the story is that this last allusion was a reinterpretation of the Madrid singer-songwriter Ismael Serrano. Among the memes, many jokes reinventing other famous phrases.
The insult to Sánchez and Ayuso's fruit campaign. Sánchez reminded the PP leader that his predecessor, Pablo Casado, accused Díaz Ayuso's brother of a case of corruption in the sale of masks during the pandemic. When the television camera focused on the Madrid president, her lips read "what a son of a bitch" directed at Sánchez. Her cabinet justified it as "the least that man deserves." Two videos: the one of the moment and the second, this Thursday, already in the Madrid Assembly, where Ayuso has continued with ironies.
Viral anonymous people at the door of Congress. Of the lady with the rosary "as a weapon" to prevent Vox's investiture to whom she asked, in full protest, "Who are we against?"
And, meanwhile, Girona goes first. "You have been saying for literally 46 years that Spain is breaking up (...) Spain is breaking up now because of the amnesty and also, perhaps, because Girona is going first," said Gabriel Rufián in his speech when he was addressing the PP.
Talk to clothes. Belarra, Montero and some Sumar deputies have worn "kufiyas" in support of the Palestinian people in the face of the situation in the Gaza Strip. In addition, Montero, on the second day, wore a Rosa Parks t-shirt and a bag with the slogan "yes means yes."
The watermelon for Palestine. Other deputies from IU and Sumar, such as Yolanda Díaz, have worn a pin of a watermelon, another symbol that represents Palestine as its flag has the same colors as the fruit. According to EFE, the use of the watermelon as a symbol alluding to the Palestinian flag began after the Six-Day War of 1967, when it was prohibited to be displayed and the aforementioned fruit began to serve as a substitute.
