Twitter reimagines a nation with Donald Trump as leader in the year 1776
Good Morrow, Sir Trump!
It’s the year 1776. A group of men are congregated to sign the long-awaited Declaration of Independence, arguably the most noteworthy icon of U.S. freedom and liberty. Among the lads are the notorious Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams, surrounded by 53 other signers present during this colossal moment of American history.
Well … 54.
All of a sudden, a man storms in, loud as thunder. He is plagued with an orange fake tan and a gaudy “Make America Great Again” tricorn hat.
This man is Donald Trump.

Twitter users’ creativity and wit has produced some fantastically Trump-inspired content with many of the tweets based on real-life quotes and openly expressed views. We clawed our way into the Twittersphere to find some instances of ingenuity:
Good thanks, Twitter! Forever, we are indebted to thee for showing the world Trump rocking a wig.
