The guy who did it had his real Twitter handle in there as "John Barron's" publicist. I don't think he expected it to take off like it did; when I posted it, he had about 80k followers.

If you don't know who John Barron is, it was a fictional persona trump used throughout the 80s to talk to people about how awesome trump is. I kid you not.

Along the lines of twitter things that are funny:

Makes me thankful that:

1. I can use twitter (if I choose)
2. Fly in the USA (if I choose)
3. Go to a protest (if I choose) and not smear poop on everything.
