That viral video of a girl telling Donald Trump ‘You’re a disgrace’ is not what it seems

There's just one small problem.

Yesterday evening, Twitter was set alight by a little girl hero, who apparently finally put the president in his place.

As dunking on Donald Trump is practically the national pastime on Twitter, the clip instantly went mega-viral, with nearly a quarter million people favoriting her saying “you’re a disgrace to the world.”

Unfortunately, much like the myth of the little girl on Wall Street, this, too, was not what it seemed.

The girl was speaking to a Donald Trump impersonator, Anthony Atamanuik, who has a show on Comedy Central.

Atamanuik was responding to Twitter users who thought the entire thing might have been a staged sketch for his show. It was part of the show, which aired on Thursday. But this interaction, he said, was completely spontaneous.

Even though it wasn’t said right to POTUS’s face, people found pleasure in it, possibly because so many people want to do what she seemed to have done.

Creative Twitter users still found a way to twist it into a shot at the president.

Never underestimate Twitter’s ability to find a silver lining of a joke in anything.
