Not Trending on Twitter

I am struck by the fact that #wrathofkhan is not trending on twitter. Only two tweets with that hashtag referred to Khizr Khan. I think this means that respect for the heroism of captain Khan and the sorrow and courage of his parents (combined with deep anger at Donald Trump) is stronger than the temptation to tweet a perfect pop culture reference. That means very very strong.

I would be ashamed to write a joke including the name "Khan". I feel a bit funny about this post.

update: well the resistance of temptation was impressive while it lasted
