During the most recent episode of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the outspoken talk show host criticized Apple for the most unusual of reasons.

Donald Trump loves boasting about how wealthy he is, yet the Presidential candidate steadfastly refuses to release his tax returns. Over the past few months, the reasons why Trump has declined to make his tax returns public have been all over the map. Sometimes he’ll bring up something involving an audit and other times he’ll simply say he doesn’t have or want to.
Looking to have a little bit of fun with Trump’s waffling, the folks over at Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday took to the streets and told any Trump supporter they could find that Trump had, at long last, released his tax returns. They then “asked them specific questions about these totally fictional tax returns in another edition of #LieWitnessNews.”
As anyone who has followed Donald Trump’s unprecedented and unlikely run for the Oval Office, the man who popularized the phrase “You’re Fired!” certainly has a way with words. Now no one would ever mistake Trump for a wordsmith, but when it comes to insulting people or summarizing complex topics into vague and curiously aggressive soundbites, there’s uniquely Trump vernacular that we’ve never before seen in a Presidential race.

To help save you some time, and to provide a few hearty laughs on a lazy Friday, we’ve combed through some of the most outrageously clever and hilarious tweets that perfectly capture what Donald Trump would sound like if forced to review movies on Twitter.

One of the more intriguing and highly anticipated new TV shows of the summer is AMC’s The Preacher. Set to premiere this coming Sunday, the show follows former criminal Jesse Custer (played by Dominic Cooper) who, in an effort to get his life back on track, returns to his Texas hometown to become a preacher.
And from there, the insanity begins.

If there’s one thing Donald Trump is adept at, it’s doling out insults. Whether it’s calling someone he disagrees with a ‘lightweight’ or even calling out Senator John McCain for being captured during the Vietnam War, Trump isn’t afraid to diminish, ridicule, and poke fun at anyone who happens to criticize him or stand in his way.
All the same, Trump’s repertoire of insults isn’t all that diverse or creative, especially on Twitter. More often than not, Trump relies upon a small selection of words and a similar pattern of phrasing when spewing out insults at whoever his target of the moment happens to be.
In the battle for late night supremacy, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon continues to trounce the competition. Even The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which got off to a strong start when it premiered, can’t seem to keep pace with Fallon’s antics. Indeed, one of the reasons why Fallon’s offering at NBC continues to do well is because the show has a knack for creating shareable and, every so often, viral videos. As a prime example, you might recall this video of Fallon and the cast from Star Wars: The Force Awakens singing an a capella tribute to the movie series.

And most recently, Schumer absolutely killed it on Saturday Night Live, prompting many to wishfully write that the show would be better off with her as a full-time cast member.
HLN, a headline news cable channel owned by CNN, was hit with an epic and hilarious troll job yesterday when media personality Jon Hendren was brought on to discuss the implications and significance of Edward Snowden joining Twitter.
