Donald Trump Did An #AskTrump Twitter Q&A, The Internet Responded By Hilariously Trolling Him
Donald Trump recently swung by Twitter HQ in New York to partake in the never-a-good-idea of a Twitter Q&A. Questions came from the public using the hashtag #AskTrump and, for some reason, Trump or anyone at Twitter (or perhaps they knew exactly what would happen and that’s why they did it) didn’t think it would turn into a massive trolling session.
Which is exactly what it turned into, as these things always do, as people fired off insults about his hair (naturally), his bigoted attitude to, well anyone that isn’t him, and his general racism.
Meaning it was a whole lot of fun for anyone who wasn’t Donald Trump. Although you feel that, by now, he’s impervious to insults. He’s Mr. Teflon incarnate. But with terrible hair.
While he carried it off with his trademark wry smile i can only imagine that he was thinking to himself that there would be strong words to be said with his campaign manager when he got back to Trump HQ. As one Twitter user pondered, “When you get hold of the person whose idea this was, will there be hell toupee?”
He did end up addressing some questions, just not the ones which were insults. And there were a lot of those.
Let’s take a look.
