This wasn’t his first viral tweet.

A 16-year-old’s tweet went viral when President-elect Donald Trump retweeted him on Monday in a voter fraud-inspired tweet storm.

In less than 24 hours, the tweet was liked over 27,000 times and retweeted over 6,800. This isn’t the first time a @FiIibuster tweet has gone viral though. It turns out the Beverly Hills-based teen has experienced a taste of the Twitter limelight before.

His current hobbies appear to consist of posing next to a cardboard cutout of Donald Trump.


And rage-tweeting at CNN for “dishonest” reporting.

But it was not so long ago that the young Trump supporter was passing his days as so many teen boys do: being a total troll on Twitter. The object of his trolling? Ayesha Curry.

Ah, America. A land 16-year-old boys can go from trolling a basketball star’s wife to getting a Trump retweet in a matter of months. To all the young trolls out there watching, never doubt that you are inflammatory, repulsive, and could one day earn your own Trump RT.
