As the United States inches closer to the fateful Jan. 20, where one poised and collected world leader will be replaced with a rambling buffoon, how best can Americans prepare themselves for such an awkward transition? By beautifully transforming President Barack Obama’s eloquent speech into President-elect Donald Trump’s inane babble.
And that is exactly what one brilliant Twitter account is doing. @ImmatureObama is gearing up for the unforeseeable, unpredictable next four years by turning Obama’s words into Trump’s blatantly notorious tweets.
“This fantastic translator can take Obama's tweets and show what they would look like if they were typed by Trump's little troll fingers,” the account bio reads, and it is doing a rather impressive job at making smooth-talking Obama sound belligerent.
For instance, Obama tweeted a petition back in October requesting that Americans push Congress into giving Supreme Court pick Judge Merrick Garland a fair hearing. In his tweet, he stated, “Senate leaders are blocking the Supreme Court nomination for their own political gain—don't be silent.”
But in Trump’s vernacular that should really read:
“Washed up Senate blocking my SCOTUS nom. UNFAIR! I make the best picks & they're jealous. JEALOUS of my great picking skills. A sorry state.”
And unsurprisingly, it doesn’t sound too far off from Trump’s own Twitter account:
“I win an election easily, a great ‘movement’ is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state!”

Other tweets also effortlessly capture the abrasive tone and simplistic vocabulary of Trump’s signature tweeting style.
LAZY congress won't do their jobs. They'd rather let everyone die of Zika! Bias media won't report it! https://t.co/71v7spss7m— Immature Obama (@ImmatureObama) January 11, 2017
Maybe I should hide my birth certificate in a climate change report so conservatives will finally look at one! ha! https://t.co/ckxlowopqF— Immature Obama (@ImmatureObama) January 11, 2017
So if you want a little taste of POTUS Trump before Inauguration Day, look no further than Immature Obama.
