El Salvador President Nayib Bukele has posted a photoshopped image of himself wearing a McDonald's uniform.
His self-deprecating tweet went viral, collecting over 88,700 likes and plenty of reactions from prominent names.
Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus welcomed Bukele to the “McDonald's club.” This comes after a Twitter interaction between Markus and the fast-food behemoth prompted a flurry of requests to add DOGE as a payment option at McDonald’s.

Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson quipped that the self-proclaimed “CEO of El Salvador” might be the “chosen one” because of strong his meme game is.
There has been a long-running joke about getting a job at the fast-food chain giant during market downturns. Strapped for cash, disillusioned cryptocurrency investors and traders have to come to terms with the grueling reality and become a service economy employee, working for up to 40 hours a week on minimum wage.
Bukele came under severe criticism amid the brutal Bitcoin sell-off that took over the last few days.
El Salvador has now lost an estimated $20 million by investing in Bitcoin, with all of Bukele’s purchases being in deep red.
Some started joking that the impoverished nation would soon become the first “fourth-world” country because of the president’s poorly timed buys.
Bitcoin is currently trading close to $36,000 after plunging to $34,000 on Jan. 23.
El Salvador adopted the largest cryptocurrency as an official currency last September.
