<i>The Daily Show</i>'s Presidential Twitter Library Is Moving to Chicago

As Donald Trump pulls the country further into the gutter through his tweets alone, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah (which we hear is overrated!) looked to skewer Trump’s insane social media addiction with a satirical museum. Originally opening as a limited engagement in New York City, Comedy Central announced via press release that The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library will open in Chicago later this month. The exhibit was previously based in New York City.

This opening coincides with (the dishonest!) The Daily Show having a week of shows in the Windy City, at The Athenaeum Theatre. The museum is a (not very funny!) parody of real-life presidential libraries, with a “meticulously curated” exhibit of Trump’s troublesome, idiotic and overall nonsensical tweets.

The press release describes the various visual installments and interactive elements of the museum:

*THE COMMANDER-IN-TWEET: If there’s one thing Trump is known for, it’s tweeting in response to any and all situations. At the library’s marquee attraction, attendees will have the chance to do the same by composing a totally necessary tweet upon a golden toilet installed in the Oval Office.
*SAD! A RETROSPECTIVE: A video retrospective will solemnly display a collection of people, places and things that the President has deemed “SAD!”
*TRUMP VS. TRUMP: This exhibit showcases President Trump’s unique ability to hold a variety of different opinions on the same subject.
*VERIFIED SURVIVORS: Listen to a series of testimonials from a collection of verified survivors, as they recount the trauma of being targeted by Trump on Twitter.
*DONALD J. TRUMP: A MAN OF CHARACTERS: In a short docufilm narrated by Daily Show correspondent Desi Lydic, the library takes a look at the history of Trump and the 140 character platform he’s revolutionized.
*MASTER WORKS FROM THE COLLECTION: Sit back and admire some of Trump’s finest work as a master tweeter.
*TWISTORY IN THE MAKING: DONALD J. TRUMP ON TWITTER: Attendees will be able to study the broad arc of Trump’s history in one comprehensive timeline. From his very first tweet about his appearance on Letterman, to his proclamations that Obama was born in Kenya, to his important, early morning screeds as the leader of the free world.

The Daily Show Undesked Chicago 2017: Let’s Do This Before It Gets Too Damn Cold will air the week of Oct. 16, with the Presidential Twitter Library being open to the public from Oct. 20-22. For those unable to attend (sad!), the Comedy Central website has a virtual 360-degree tour of the library.
