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.
With this as a jumping off point, the hashtag “#TrumpExplainsMoviePlots” emerged out of nowhere this week and quickly became a trending topic on Twitter. Suffice it to say, the tweets that the hashtag created are nothing short of comedic gold. 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.
We’ll get the party started with Trump hot takes on two classic Steven Spielberg movies, Jaws and Jurassic Park.
Big shark. Biggest shark you ever saw. I saw it, folks. Huge. Police chief. Great guy, friend of mine. He KILLED it #TrumpExplainsMoviePlots
