Dude expertly rickrolls followers terrified of a Trump presidency


The days leading up to the election are trying times. If you’re a Donald Trump supporter, you’re worried about the whole damn operation being rigged. If you’re anyone else, you’re simply worried about the prospect of the Donald becoming commander in chief.

Twitter user and Decision Desk dude Jeff B. played on our election emotions perfectly with this tweet, claiming that the “L.A. Times” reported Trump taking the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

What’s really afoot? Just some good old fashioned rickrolling.
