President Jacob Zuma looks on as members of Julius Malema's Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party raise objections before being evicted from Parliament during his question and answer session in Cape Town, South Africa, May 17, 2016.

Not everyone is happy with President Jacob Zuma at the moment, and they've expressed their dissatisfaction in the best way they know how - with a trending hashtag complete with side-splitting memes.

To deal with their disappointed that Zuma wasn't recalled, Twitter took to poking fun at the times the president appeared to be ignored in photographs with the hashtag #PoorBaba.
