I want to post the satirical meme on HISFacebook page, ONLY as a response to one of his political views. LEGALLY, is it OKto do this? Thank You

Hello. I don't have the legal expertise to respond to this question fully. There are state laws that protect pseudo intellectual property [sic] rights like the right of publicity. If it was just a copyright question, my assumption would be that this is a fair use exemplar - criticism and satire.
