Parody Account Imagines A World With A Balding, Mature Trump

An anonymous Twitter account is re-imagining President-elect Donald Trump’s tweets to show how world leaders are supposed to express their opinions.

Almost everybody knows that Donald Trump is as petulant and vitriolic as he is during his speeches and interviews.

It is rather unsettling to see the 45th president of the United States, the next leader of the free world, spending so much time and energy to tweet rants against his critics, retweet 16-year-olds to bash “dishonest” reporters and, most recently, post angry reactions to acceptance speeches made during Hollywood award shows.

Consider this: Trump is, so far, the only U.S. president-elect who has used the words “Hillary flunky” to describe a veteran Hollywood actor. His inauguration is less than two weeks away and one of the first tasks he carried out early Monday morning was to respond to Meryl Streep’s speech she gave upon accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.

This is not how world leaders have a discussion. (This is not even how grown-ups have a discussion.)

And that’s exactly what one parody Twitter account is trying to show Trump.

An anonymous Twitter has created a "Presidential Trump," or "MatureTrumpTwts," an account that basically re-writes the president-elect’s actual tweets, using appropriate, presidential language.

For instance, here’s what Trump said about Mexico not paying for the infamous border wall:


Here’s how Presidential Trump re-worded it:


And here’s how Trump should’ve responded to Streep’s speech:



More examples include:






It might just be a mock account but its message is poignant. Trump is no longer a reality television personality. On Jan. 20, he will be sworn in as the head of state and head of government of the United States of America, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces. He will make decisions that will shape the future of an entire nation.

It’s about time Trump realized the gravity of his new job because the country doesn’t deserve a leader who spends his time tweeting “The Apprentice” ratings and berating “A” list celebrities for not agreeing to perform at his inauguration.
