As President Barack Obama steps down, leaving us with his typically reassuring message of hope for the future, we’re all coming to terms with the unassailable facts: We’re about to have four years of President Donald J. Trump. But @ImmatureObama figures: Why wait? The best way to get used to a Trump presidency is clearly to take the rational, thoughtful, empathetic words of Barack Obama and send them through a filter to appropriately Trumpify them. Behold! That’s exactly what this Twitter account does, perfectly capturing the tenor of Trump’s favorite form of communication. The account’s description:
This fantastic translator can take Obama’s tweets and show what they would look like if they were typed by Trump’s little troll fingers.
For example: Obama’s 2015 visit to the Arlington National Cemetery generated the following tweet: “Spent the morning at Arlington. Take time today to honor our fallen heroes. We’re forever indebted to their families.”
In Trump language, however, that becomes: “Its a disgrace how many fallen HEROES we have Arlington. If I was in charge earlier I could have prevented all of this. Everyones saying it!”
Now tell us that doesn’t sound exactly like a typical Trump tweet. Below are some of our other favorite, recent @ImmatureObama tweets, riddled with beautifully realistic CAPITALIZATION, exclamation points and grammatical errors.
