Lots Of People Just Fell For A Fake Trump Tweet About The Stock Market

Here’s the deal, though: That Trump tweet is fake. The guy who posted it, Shaun Usher, of the notable website Letters of Note, made it up.

He honestly didn’t think people would really believe the tweet was real, especially because he spelled “Jones” wrong, as Joans. Yeah, but Shaun, that’s exactly why people thought it was real. There was nothing in this tweet that was so extreme or egregious as to be unbelievable. This is Donald Trump, the nuttiest, most scorched-earth, most bad-at-Twitter politician of all time we’re talking about. Is satire still satire if it’s too accurate?
