Donald Trump Jr. compared his viral New York Times profile photo that immediately turned into a meme to the success of chef Nusret Gökçe -- also known as Salt Bae.

"Apparently I'm really bad at sitting?!?!" Trump Jr. posted Sunday on Instagram. "Based on the memes out there I now know what it feels like to be Salt Bae! Thanks internet... And in all honesty if a couple bad pics is all you've got I'm pretty psyched. #tryharder #saltbae #trump#haters #hatersgonnahate."

Salt Bae is the meme-alias of Gökçe, whose Instagram video sprinkling salt on a steak became a viral sensation.

Trump Jr. even tweeted about it Monday morning. "Ha, yea I feel like Salt Bae. #saltbae #maga."

Reactions to Trump Jr. comparing himself to Salt Bae, however, were mixed.
