Here's a way to end the week: Twitter is going in on Donald Trump for using Scotch tape to hold his tie together.

The president-elect stopped in Indianapolis, Indiana Thursday to visit the Carrier air-conditioning and heating company. As he walked off his plane, a gust of wind hit him and his red power tie, flicking it back until it was waving in the wind and exposing Scotch tape.

Of course, the jokes immediately started flying. There were plenty of "tape holding his tie together like it's holding his presidency together" type jokes that alluded to his skills as a leader. Check out some of the reactions to #TieGate below.
