Jeff Sessions was fired, and Twitter users can't hold back on the memes. 

In a pair of tweets on Wednesday, Trump announced that Matthew G. Whitaker, Sessions' former chief of staff, is stepping in as acting Attorney General. 

"We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well," Trump tweeted. "A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date." 

But in an undated resignation letter, Sessions writes to the president, "at your request, I am submitting my resignation." 

Many poked fun at Sessions' uncanny resemblance to a the least jolly elf imaginable.

Jeff Sessions has left as Attorney General to pursue his dream of being a huge asshole while baking cookies in a treehouse.

Some couldn't help but bring up his reputation of making racist remarks.

Jeff Sessions can now retire from politics and enjoy his dream job of serving as a garden gnome outside KKK headquarters.

The abuse and contempt Jeff Sessions endured from the president was a remarkable testament to his lifelong commitment to doing racism at the highest level.

congrats to jeff sessions on giving up his senate seat and letting the president humiliate him for two years so he could try to disenfranchise as many nonwhite people as possible

Let's just take a moment to acknowledge the resignation letter's wording.

It's easy to make fun of Jeff Sessions, but I hope while everyone on the Left mocks him, we remember he was also the villain in The Burbs pic.twitter.com/6i2PXejj5a

It's almost reassuring to know that no matter how turbulent American politics are, Twitter and its memes will always be here.
