Prior to the 2012 presidential election, the Washington, D.C., Metro system began preparing special commemorative “SmartTrip” cards for Inauguration Day featuring both major candidates.

President Obama would go on to win reelection that year, but the Metro also designed a fancy Mitt Romney-themed SmartTrip card for the special occasion, just in case.


President-elect Donald Trump, however, does not appear on this year’s commemorative Inauguration Day SmartTrip card:

The word “Trump” is nowhere to be found. Trump himself does not appear on the card. Twitters users were outraged.

Even Trump’s critics were a bit annoyed at the generic, faceless design.
