The 15 Funniest Tweets About Big Trump and His Tiny Desk
OK, that wasn’t the stated purpose of the holiday press conference. First, he blabbed about how he called some service members. Then he bragged about Space Force. He finished his rant (err…speech) by lobbing the word “rigged” around regarding the election (without a shred of evidence to back his claim up, of course). Then he lost it on a Reuters reporter for some perceived disrespect.
“Don’t talk to me that way. You’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that — I’m the president of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the president that way,” Trump scolded the journalist.
But that wasn’t what made Twitter go wild. No, it was something else entirely: the size of Trump’s desk. In some silly mistake (or some very clever sabotage), someone put a very big man behind a very tiny desk. The social media platform tore the president to shreds over it. From a new nickname #DiaperDon to comparisons to NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts, Twitter users had a heyday mocking No. 45 being relegated to the kids’ table. Who new furniture could provide so many laughs? Here are 15 of the best burns, memes, and musings about Trump’s tiny desk.
