Donald Trump wasn’t sure if he would accept the impending election results during the third and final presidential debates Wednesday evening, and social media decided to take that same attitude and apply it towards all things in life.

“I will look at it at the time, I’m not looking at anything now,” said Trump when Chris Wallace asked if he would commit to accepting the result of this election. “I’ll keep you in suspense.”

The Republican presidential candidate said more than a few controversial things during the last debate that had social media up in flames, but his “suspense” line seemed to provide Twitter users with a new alternative to respond to any questions life throws at you. When life gives them lemons, folks on Twitter turn those lemons into comedy.

That “I’ll keep you in suspense” — which is typically a pretty lighthearted line — was used in such a serious context, it led to jokes about regular people appropriating the approach to answer questions they don’t want to answer.
