After a Tory campaign stop in Toronto Tuesday, a supporter fed up with questions about the Duffy trial hurls profanity at reporters

It turns out yelling profane insults at a crowd of political reporters is a pretty good way to become a meme. 

This video of a Tory supporter's rant was the talk of Twitter on Tuesday.

It didn't take long for the Photoshopping to get started.

More than a few people noticed this similarity.

And this one.

​Others noticed the little things.

"Go stuff yourself" was a popular theme.

And he's even become a Heritage Minute.
