Twitter goes berserk over park ranger's facial expression as he accepted Trump's salary donation

President Donald Trump donated his first-quarter salary of $78,333 to the National Park Service during Sean Spicer's daily press briefing on Tuesday.

Trump's action made good on a campaign promise that he would donate his entire $400,000 annual salary if he were elected.

Although many lauded the president's deed, which the billionaire businessman referred to a "no big deal" for him, one man seemed particularly unimpressed by the gesture.

National Park Service representative Tyrone Brandyburg, a superintendent at Harpers Ferry National Historic Park, sported quite the unenthusiastic expression while receiving the check.

Twitter user Kevin M. Kruse explained Brandyburg's demeanor by comparing the size of Trump's donation to the massive budget cuts he proposed this year.

The cuts would take $1.5 billion of federal funding away from the Interior Department, which, ironically, includes the Park Service.

After that, Brandyburg's expression took on a life of its own, with many Twitter users claiming his refusal to be impressed makes him "all of us."

The National Parks Service still graciously accepted the donation, regardless of the internet uproar.

"The National Park Service is proud and deeply honored by President Trump's donation to support the preservation of battlefields in the National Park System," said Acting National Park Service Director Michael T. Reynolds.

"Philanthropy has been essential to the National Park Service's mission since its establishment, and this notable contribution will enable the National Park Service to share these remarkable places with more visitors for generations to come."
