To Top

In the years to come, when history looks back on the four (and please God only four) years of the Trump presidency, bookish academics will — for obvious reasons — push the glasses up on their faces and refer to his as the “Twitter presidency.” More than any other Commander in Chief, 45 is keen to express himself in bald terms via the social media outlet. He’s a borderline addict, never stopping to sift his words through any kind of filter before he takes to Twitter to ignite rage in 140 characters or less. Fortunately for America, Twitter is also home to a legion of people who are just keen to put the Donald back in his stupid, stupid place. For every lame Trump post, there are five notable people who’ve taken to Twitter to let Trump know he’s a moron. Judging by the A-plus performance he gave himself recently on Fox and Friends, he isn’t hearing the critiques. We are though, and they’re hilarious. Here are some of the best.

1. Don’t Mess With a Literary Titan

JK Rowling has been poking fun at Trump since his run for the presidency stopped being a joke and became frightening. Fortunately the Harry Potter author (and all-around kickass writer) is wonderful at eviscerating 45.

2. A Quick Stat About Those Seven Muslim Countries

When Trump halted travel from seven primarily Muslim countries, several were quick to attack the decision, including George Takei, who was quick to resort to (ugh!) facts to make his point.

3. Sweden Is on Fire!

A few weeks ago, the Prez made an offhand comments about the “refugee crisis” currently going on in Sweden because they took in such large numbers of displaced Syrians.. Here’s the thing about that, though …

4. But There’s One Theory About #LastNightinSweden

Twitter personality, Red T Raccoon was able to drum up some footage of the supposed crime. Be careful, it’s shocking.

5. The Nordstrom Debacle

When Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trump’s underperforming line of clothes, the President took to Twitter to proclaim that people should boycott Nordstrom for being hateful and vindictive. It didn’t go his way.

6. A German Speaks Out

Okay, he’s not technically a celebrity, but when Trump attacked the European way of life, this fella responded with a little tongue-in-cheek wisdom.


7. On Meryl Streep

When Meryl Streep took the stage to give her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, she capped off her zillionth acting award by eviscerating the incoming President. Trump responded by calling the most decorated actress in Academy Award history, “over-rated” (which isn’t the correct spelling, by the way). Hollywood hit back in force, but Ricky Gervais gets the win.

8. Okay, One More Shot For Meryl Because She’s Awesome

If you thought MAD Magazine was a thing of the past, then let this pictorial remind you how relevant they can be.

9. Early This Year, Emmy Rossum Got Fed Up

Well, it took her long enough. By January 9, pretty much everyone else was already way over Trump. The Shameless star vented her frustration.

10. The Bromance Between Putin and Trump

Takei lays it out once more … the guy has a real deep hatred of the President … for some reason …

11. Trump’s New Year’s Tweet

When Trump tweeted some gibberish on New Year’s, Michael Moore was quick to point out a perfect tweet delivered by Matt Oswalt.


12. Inauguration Plans

The night before Trump’s inauguration, celebrities took to Twitter to explain what they were doing besides watching the demagogue take the oath of office. Katy Perry pledged to sleep in. Patton Oswalt wanted to check out local theater. But Chris Rock was going to be busy.

13. It’s Getting Harder to Joke

One of Trump’s most recent frustrating legislative moves is to roll back recent rules that allowed transgender people to use whichever public restroom they felt most comfortable using. There weren’t a ton of jokes on that topic (because it’s ludicrous enough), but Laverne Cox did have some words of wisdom on the issue.

14. Schwarzenegger Weighs In

When Donald Trump took the time out of his job to poke fun at The Apprentice’s lowered ratings under Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Austrian superstar’s response was measured, but incisive.


15. But All This Hostility Is Really Just a Coping Mechanism

What we really wanted was a third Obama term.
