Many people around the world are celebrating President Donald Trump's departure from the White House.

Some on social media have chosen to do so by sharing two words in particular: Bye Felicia.

The popular phrase originated from the 1995 movie “Friday”, when it was uttered by a character played by rapper Ice Cube.  

It has since become a go-to line for dismissing people and telling someone to get out of your face.

Trump is the only president to be impeached twice. The latest charge, on the incitement of insurrection by the House of Representatives, took place a week after the US Capitol building was stormed by his supporters.

Five people died during the attempted coup which delayed the counting of Electoral College votes, that certified Joe Biden’s victory.

Under Senate procedure, the chamber’s trial can start after it is back in session and the House delivers the article of impeachment.

Popular culture’s favourite goodbye has now been turned on Trump with social media users sharing memes to mock the end of his term.

 

A few comments were also saved for FLOTUS, Melania Trump.

A video previously surfaced of former First Lady Michelle Obama and Beyoncé also repeating the famous quip.
