Trump brutally mocked for breathlessly falling for a joke news article

Donald Trump has once again given the world an embarrassing reminder of the true depths of his stupidity by eagerly retweeting a satirical article as if it were a genuine news story. The article in question was published by The Babylon Bee, a deeply unfunny right-wing version of The Onion whose “jokes” usually just consist of hamfisted conservative talking points.

The article Trump shared was titled “Twitter Shuts Down Entire Network To Slow Spread of Negative Biden News,” a mocking take on Twitter’s decision to stop the spread of a New York Post hit piece on the former vice president’s son. Demonstrating all of the credulity of a particularly uncurious child, Trump remarked: “Wow, this has never been done in history. This includes his really bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this. Bringing more attention to Sleepy Joe & Big T.”

Clearly, the president was not sharing the article because he thought it was funny, he was sharing it because he thought it was true or a useful piece of misinformation he could blast to his followers. The first explanation is deeply embarrassing and the second is deeply unacceptable. It hardly needs to be said, but the man in control of our nuclear arsenal and in full command of the world’s most powerful military should ideally be able to tell the difference between actual news and a joke. His mind has all the horsepower of a rusty hamster wheel.

Hours later, Trump penned another tweet explaining that “Big T” was not a reference to himself but a term he has coined for “Big Tech.” He added that this distinction should have been “properly pointed out in Twitter’s Fake Trending Section,” as if Twitter should have been able to read his mind and immediately know what “Big T” stood for.

Really what we have here is a case of an elderly man in possible cognitive decline getting confused and angry on the internet because he lacks basic digital literacy.

Twitter users could hardly believe the president’s idiocy and unleashed a torrent of mockery.
