Donald Trump is narcissistic, incompetent, a racist, and a clown. But if there is any upside to his presidency, it’s the endless fodder he offers to the world’ comedians. From late night talk shows to stand-up comedy, Trump is the laughingstock of the world.
Over the weekend, author and comedian Sarah Cooper trashed Trump for his relationship with Vladimir Putin, particularly in light of the revelation that the Russian government was offering Taliban soldiers cash bounties on the heads of U.S. soldiers. Trump has yet to act, which would be a devastating scandal in any other presidency. For Trump, it was just another Friday.
The Trump administration has made noise recently about banning the online social media platform, TikTok, which he claims is because they are owned by China and can collect information about American citizens through the platform. In fact, Trump wants to ban TikTok because young Americans used the platform to snatch up all the Trump Tulsa rally tickets and then not attending. Trump believed the hype, tweeting about the one million supporters who had requested tickets to an arena that holds less than 19,000 people. He was left with an embarrassing crowd of just over 6,000 people.
In a time when no one really feels like laughing, comedians have lightened the devastating impact on our country, impact that leaves many feeling hopeless and joyless. Sarah Cooper is adding her name to the long list of people Americans can count on for a laugh and a smile.
Twitter was delighted by Cooper’s tweets about Trump. Read some of their comments below:
