Donald Trump’s Popularity Has Skyrocketed, Not Because Everybody Wants Him President
If you are a Twitter aficionado you have probably read the countless tweets netizens and socially dependent people are posting about Donald Trump. Surf the net and you will find that these tweets are nowhere near flattering for the Republican presidential frontrunner. Most of these tweets are hilarious ones that actually make fun of the former Apprentice host.
Take a look at a couple of tweets:
Donald Trump running for president is like Joffrey Lannister running for prom king.

If Donald Trump is elected president he will top the Washington Monument with another horizontal section to form a Trump “T”. — pourmecoffee (@pourmecoffee) June 16, 2015
I just realized that Donald Trump reminds me of Biff Tannen from Back To The Future. pic.twitter.com/SzBorCAOsq

Some are actually downright rude and offensive and very personal like these tweets about his hair:
Donald trump announces this morning that he will run for president. His hair will announce on Friday — Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) June 16, 2015Advertisement
Donald Trump will bring to the presidency what the early leaders of America did: fake hair.

Sarcasm, cynicism, derision, mockery and above all witticism are the primary theme of all tweets targeting him.
Donald Trump would be a great president… if you are white, male, Christian, wealthy and willing to obliterate the rest of the world — Taylor Rhodes (@rocky_rhodes19) September 17, 2015
Donald Trump refers to himself in the third person. You know who else did that? JULIUS CAESAR! Also, Gollum. — Chris Addison (@mrchrisaddison) June 16, 2015
But then again, who can blame these Trump’s detractors when their tweets are actually reactions to the billionaire’s own tweets.
In an interview, President Obama said, “My definition of leadership would be leading on climate change, an international accord that potentially we’ll get in Paris.” And Trump did not like any of that. And he has stuck by his words; he is “not a believer in climate change,” and that global warming is but a great hoax “created by and for the Chinese to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. A tweet from the @realDonaldTrump has earned a lot of derisive replies:
President Obama was terrible on @60Minutes tonight. He said CLIMATE CHANGE is the most important thing, not all of the current disasters!

His tweeting and his compulsive itch to join in any trending issues plus other mass media activities has actually earned him the title “the classic reality TV character” and a “great publicity seeker” from none other than the POTUS, himself.
