Donald Trump is terrified of sharks – coming second to “losers and haters,” apparently. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, noted in an interview that Trump is “obsessed with sharks.” She added: “Terrified of sharks. He was like, ‘I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.’ He was like riveted. He was like obsessed. It’s so strange, I know.”
Well, people don’t like Trump so his disdain for the toothy creatures prompted donations in his name to sea life protection charities. And one savvy Twitter user created a bot “Trump But About Sharks,” that rewrites the former reality show star’s tweets to add a reference to sharks. Trump, of course, didn’t realize he was being mocked as he used his Sunday to retweet his sycophants who defended him on the Sunday shows.

That takes “Jumping the Shark” to hitherto unknown levels of meta.

Trump is like a kid at a birthday party, blindfolded and broomstick in hand, swinging away at a piñata five hours after the party ended.

Irony as well as punctuation out of his scope

The bot’s profile description reads: “Trump apparently hates sharks, so this bot does some word replacement on his tweets to make them about sharks.” And the “president” can’t read.
