Donald Trump’s response to the anonymous op-ed piece in the New York Times by a senior Trump administration official was swift and direct: The president called the source “gutless” and “phony” and a threat to national security.

But the internet’s reaction to the article was a bit more indirect; readers wanted answers to many questions after the Times published the op-ed. Who wrote it? Which senior officials might be part of the resistance within the Trump administration? Is the unnamed source even real?

People scratched their heads in confusion while sharing their theories on Twitter via hilarious memes featuring Vice President Mike Pence, who has denied being the author, first lady Melania Trump, and others.
