The EFF leader is trending on Twitter after he took a dig at President Cyril Ramaphosa at the Tshwane results operations centre on Thursday, calling him "boring" and a mood killer.
The video was live streamed on YouTube with the title EFF Presser IEC ROC, Tshwane and now Saffas have drawn inspiration from the title and are making the hashtag #EFFPresser famous.
TimesLive joined in on the action and shared a post on Twitter quoting Malema as he joked about the ANC's election results.
"The ANC has gone below 50%. Someone was supposed to play Tsonga music here so I can dance for you. I'm the happiest man," said Malema

Malema says EFF will not govern soon, hopes for ANC coalition, SA heap criticism
In other news, Briefly News reported that South Africans tended to agree with EFF leader Julius Malema on social media after he expressed that his party will not govern any time soon on the heels of a disastrous display at the local polls.
Malema resolved that his party will not play dirty politics by hurling unfounded criticism at voters for not supporting its vision to govern. Instead, Malema said he will await invitations to join in a coalition movement.
