How does Trump bring the world to its knees in 140 characters? This YouTuber things he knows the answer.
President-elect Donald Trump, the reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last year, can cause an international incident with only the power of his thumbs. Through Twitter, Trump delivers the unfiltered id that is our next four years, but what is he looking to accomplish by sending so many into a panic? There isn’t a whole lot of room for nuance or explanation in a Tweet, and those details are critical. Now, as his incoming press secretary said that he’ll be making major policy announcements via Twitter, it’s worth understanding how Trump tweets.
This video from the Nerdwriter does a great job breaking down the tweets by device, tone, and punctuation to come to this conclusion: Trump isn’t using Twitter like a politician, he’s using it like regular person. Trump tweets for impact, and he knows how to do it. The Nerdwriter gets into some of the science of tweeting and more. Check it out.
Can’t wait for the movie!
The new book Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration by David King is for sale on Amazon.
By all accounts, it’s a real book. There’s a jacket, a spine, paper pages, etc. By all accounts David King is a real author. The cover even declares him a “political analyst.” By all accounts, the unaccredited review on the cover, which reads “‘Refreshingly honest’” underneath five stars, is a real review. It has to be real or else why would they put it there?
The information inside supports this argument. King’s latest treatise on that why reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month deserves trust, respect, and admiration is completely empty, not a word in it. It’s filled with blank, empty pages. Any question? The book’s description clears up any questions:
“This book is full of blank pages. Despite years of research, we could not find anything to say on this subject, so please feel free to use this book for notes.”
Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration is on sale now for $7.99. It’s Prime ready and the page features this advertisement:
Does that mean Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration is one of the best books of 2016? Probably not, but it really makes you think.
While the president-elect is tweeting over her, a giant rooster with his haircut is cock-a-doodle-doo-ing in China.
Perhaps inspired that real-life bird that looks like the former reality TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month, an artist China has unveiled a huge (read: yuge) rooster statue in Taiyuan, Shanxi, China. The bird resides just outside a shopping mall for all to see.

The statue celebrates both the upcoming Year of the Rooster and four years of the Trump that we’re all kind of stuck. According to Mashable, “The statue was commissioned by the mall's owners and miniature versions of it are reportedly being sold inside and on the Chinese ecommerce site Taobao.”
One things for sure: That rooster’s got cool hair.
Finding a performer for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration hasn't been easy. Apparently, no one wants to show support for that reality TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month.
In November, Elton John was rumored to be performing, though, he denied the rumor. John told The Guardian: “I don’t really want my music to be involved in anything to do with an American election campaign. I’m British. I’ve met Donald Trump, he was very nice to me, it’s nothing personal, his political views are his own, mine are very different, I’m not a Republican in a million years. Why not ask Ted fucking Nugent? Or one of those fucking country stars? They’ll do it for you.”
Well, actually, they won't because neither Nugent nor Kid Rock are on the lineup.
So who are the big league performers destined to help America Rock again? According to Consequence of Sound, the good gets are:
All this and probably not that much more for $350. Hopefully it goes toward a new website. Trump’s war against good design lumbers on.
Ah, the yule log, is there anything better to cozy up to on a cold wintry night?
Not even a real fireplace could compare. After all, there’s no way to change the channel on a fireplace.
Well, I’ll give you this: One of the great things about a real fireplace is that you can actually burn something in it. Whether it’s a false ledger you use to evade your taxes, your medical records, or a written confession to a crime, nothing purifies you body and soul like a nice, cleansing fire.
So in the spirit of giving you something to burn, the folks over at The Daily Show have given you the next best thing: A burning constitution over Christmas carols and the dulcet tones of that reality TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month delivering some of his famous catchphrases, like “we’re going to be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again” and “bing bing bong bong.” Five-hours of Christmas cheer. Oh, it feels great to say that again: "Christmas." Remember when saying “Christmas” was punishable by death?
So put your arm around that special someone, take a sip of cocoa, and get ready for 2017 because, hoo, boy, it’s going to be a lot worse than this piece of garbage year.
It’s starting to look like SNL has a little of the Trump Regret that’s been going around.
And to make up for having him host last year, the sketch show has been really sticking it to that reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month.
This week in the on-going saga of Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump, he gets a Christmas gift from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was just hiding in the walls. Can you guess what it is? Do you want to take a peek in someone else’s email to see? That can be arranged…
Anyway, this is just one of the few Christmas themed sketches this week on SNL, including an updated version of Run-DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis” and Hillary Clinton showing some “Love, Actually” to some electors.
It’s already been a big day for President-elect Donald Trump, the billionaire reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month. Earlier today, he called to cancel Boeing’s Air Force One contract and a New York City Councilman asked Trump to leave New York. This is coming off of a long week (a loooooooong week) of diplomatic blunders and concern.
Seth Meyers took a Closer Look at Trump’s long week, which is inching ever closer to a longer four years, on last night’s Late Night. Seth dove into the last week of Trump and found that after the calls of voter fraud and calls with Taiwan, maybe it’s time for a new pledge of a allegiance. Instead of placing our hands over our hearts, we would place the palm of our hands over our forehead.
Check it out in the video above.
We’re about a month out from the election and the transition into a country run by a billionaire reality TV game show host has not been, uh, smooth. When he’s not Tweeting about SNL, making casual calls to Taiwan, or lying about voter fraud, Trump has been disappointing some of his biggest supporters. For the majority of the country, over 65 million voters, who did not vote for Trump, this would be the chance to say “I told you so,” but we’re all in this together now, and, hoo, boy, we better start getting along.
Still, that doesn’t mean the popular voters can’t have a little fun. So in the spirt of “I told you so,” here comes Trumgrets, a running tumblr of people regretting their vote last month. Not much to it than that, but just like the buyer’s remorse here, you get what you paid for.
As we’ve heard over the past few days, that billionaire reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month, Donald Trump, will soon bring us to complete dystopia: He can mass text all of America at once.

Through the FCC’s Wireless Emergency Alerts, Trump can text all of America at the same time, probably to schedule New Year’s Eve plans that take a month to coordinate but go no where. The system is devised for emergencies, according to New York Magazine, but as we know, Trump is very trigger happy when it comes to his phone. We all look forward to seeing 300 million messages all reading “How do I get out of this group text” and “New phone who dis?”
Luckily, Stephen Colbert is already on it over at The Late Show, delivering a hilarious monologue about the president elect’s new found phone privileges. Check it out.
Can you hear that? It's the sound of "Hello, darkness, my old friend." Or is that the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme.
Whatever it is, it's the sound of someone giving into a man that they called a "phony" and "fraud." At least, that's the look on Mitt Romney's face as he eats dinner with Donald Trump as he once again interviews for a job in the Trump administration. He looks scared, broken, and maybe, in danger — harkening back to that time just a few months ago when it looked like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was being held hostage by our president-elect.
But don't take my word for it, Twitter has already had a go at captioning the saddest night of Mitt Romney's life — and this guy lost a presidential election.
Check out some of the best reactions to the moment when a million voices inside Mitt Romney cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
What could be better than an endless supply of trump memes? Maybe some of the best of all time? Or perhaps some of the finest highlights from the G7 Summit or simply some of the best reactions to one of his more infamous tweets.
President-elect Donald Trump, the billionaire reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency in November, is a busy guy. Between tweeting that citizens should be jailed for exercising free speech and trying on new hats, he’s also a wheelin’ and dealin’ business man.
Over the past few weeks, you might have heard something about a few of Trump’s “conflicts of interest,” i.e. he’s not supposed to be doing Trump business stuff while he’s doing Trump president stuff because the constitution. When it comes to things like this, it can be hard to follow due to the fact that business is boring. Thankfully, we have The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, who put together this awesome segment explaining Trump’s conflicts of interest.
Check it out and enjoy the next four years, America!
