Donald Trump’s Twitter style is almost identical to this weird Twitter icon.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more universally revered Twitter figure than @dril. For a medium that so readily engenders hate, just about every person adores the weird Twitter user and his fabricated persona that’s the perfect mixture of musculature, bravado, and emasculation.

You’d also be very hard-pressed to find a more universally despised person on Twitter than our current president. His off-the-cuff remarks often enrage the internet, bringing about scorn and vitriol.

That’s weird because the two—one loved, one hated—are pretty much the same person on the social platform. I first noticed the similarities when Donald Trump tweetedsee you in court,” after his travel ban was struck down, a nonsensical threat because he had just lost in court.

The completely sincere sense of umbrage—even after knowing you’ve been thoroughly and properly defeated—reminded me of one of @dril’s most popular tweets ever.

In fact, every time Trump invokes the judiciary, he uses a tone that is distinctly @dril.

Call it Dril’s Law. For every single thing Donald Trump has tweeted, Dril did it earlier and better.

They’ve had similar issues with women and strike a similar tone on the subject.

As you may have guessed, their thoughts on our last president, Barack Obama, are downright identical.

Neither of them think Obama was born in the United States, that’s for sure.

And they both want the United States to build better nukes, a position @dril took long ago.

The Ebola crisis really showed just how identical their tweets are.

And both of them believe in the power of the internet.

Hell, @dril was claiming “this negative story about me is fake” way before our current commander-in-chief.

But really, it’s everything. Look at all these tweets. Once you see it, you can’t stop seeing it.

 

It really works for everything.

Dril’s real identity has never been made public. What if Donald Trump is @dril? Would it be any stranger than Donald Trump being president of the United States?
