It may have stopped trending, and a giant DDoS attack may be slowing Twitter and much of the rest of the internet to a crawl for a lot of you at the moment, but this #TrumpBookReport hashtag is still a thing of beauty.
The premise is pretty simple: Trump’s answers to specific questions about policy questions tend to sound a lot like the bullshit answers you might expect from a high-school student who didn’t do the reading. So the question arises: What if Trump actually were a high school student who didn’t do the reading?
This is what you’d get:
Oedipus. Tremendous leader. The best. I've always said that if Jocasta were my mother, perhaps I'd be dating her. #TrumpBookReport

Tremendous, tremendous jest. Huge amounts of jest. You'll never see more jest, I tell you. Well I – I have a bit more jest. #TrumpBookReport

There was much ado, believe me. So much ado. Many people are saying how much ado there was. And about what? Nothing! #TrumpBookReport

I just start catching them. I just catch, I don't wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. Grab them in the rye. #TrumpBookReport

So, post your favorites, if you can get through to Twitter. Make up new ones, even if you can’t get through. Ignore the DDoS attack and the Trump fans trying to subvert this lovely hashtag.
