Can a hashtag convince Donald Trump to donate to hurricane relief?
Donald Trump will keep talking as long as the winds keep howling.
Known Twitter-troll Trump tweeted Tuesday morning his perfectly reasonable response about Hurricane Sandy: that the storm will help President Barack Obama buy the upcoming election.
“Hurricane is good luck for Obama again- he will buy the election by handing out billions of dollars,” tweeted Trump, a part of his ongoing petty war with Obama.
“Not only giving out money, but Obama will be seen today standing in water and rain like he is a real President --- don't fall for it,” he warned. Ever the humanitarian, Trump extended the deadline for Obama to release his college transcripts and passport records in exchange for a donation to a charity of his choice until noon Thursday.
The Donald's Twitter tantrum didn’t end with the president, as he focused his ginger-hued lasers toward a dangerous dangling crane in New York City. After crowning himself the “best builder,” he tweeted, “[I[f that were my building with the crane mishap, I would have been lambasted from coast to coast.”
Twitter users, incensed at Trump’s senseless remarks, got behind a hashtag that encouraged Trump to donate millions to disaster relief... by acting like it had already happened.
