I mean, I just recently know that Hillary Clinton sent a meme to Donald Trump to delete his account. And I've read an article about this on knowyourmeme.com, that this meme has been around since 2008, but gained momentum around 2015. But I still can't get why this is such an interesting meme. I don't find it particularly interesting at all. It feels like just an empty and very, very ordinary words to me. Unlike some of other memes like "Shut up and take my money!". Well, maybe if the meme was "Shut up and delete your account!" I may find it funny or at least interesting. Can you explain from your perspective, why this "delete your account" sentence is funny or interesting enough to be a meme?
I think the article you referenced provides a great explanation
It can be seen as the online equivalent of other colloquial expressions like "kill yourself" and "go home."
You could imagine that you and a friend are walking around town. Your friend has a huge crush on a cute girl and she happens to be walking towards the two of you. Your friend becomes really nervous and as he is about to say "Hi!" to her, he trips and falls on his face. You know he likes her, and you think he has blown his chance with her. You say
Dude, kill yourself.
In other words, he's committed such a huge blunder that he cannot recover from it. It's not possible to get with this girl so there is no point in living his life.
Delete your account.
seems to be an equivalent to "kill yourself". Donald Trump has made many disparaging tweets about, among many others, Mexicans and Muslims. In Hillary Clinton's opinion, Trump has made such a huge blunder by posting such absurd tweets that his Twitter/social life is over and that he cannot recover from it. Hence, he should digitally kill himself (delete his account).
I too do not find it funny, so you are not alone. This is not a barrier to learning or mastering English, in case that was your concern.
I had to rethink my answer.
I looked over the first article and it reports that Trump posted
Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!
Hillary Clinton is tired of hearing Trumps insults and rants. She thinks the Twitterverse would be better without him. So, she responds with "Delete your account." So, like above,
(digitally, of course). End your social life so we don't have to hear another word from you!
