An odd hashtag trended heavily on Twitter Thursday — #TrumpBookReport. What’s a “Trump book report?” The hashtag originated after St. Louis, Missouri, city alderman and mayoral candidate Antonio French posted his own thoughts about Donald Trump’s performance in the final presidential debate on Wednesday night.
French compared Trump’s answers to a bad school book report, imagining how Trump might interpret a literary classic.
French’s tweet was retweeted nearly 15,000 times and spawned a top-ranked Twitter trend in the #TrumpBookReport hashtag. Here are some of the best and funniest tweets inspired by French’s original Twitter posting.
