‘The Daily Show’s Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library Opens Today in New York
If you happen to be in New York this weekend, The Daily Show has put together a free, special Trump-related event that you should check out. Titled “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library,” the simultaneously entertaining and horrifying commemoration of Trump tweets is located just around the corner from Trump Tower at 3 West 57th Street, and it’s open to the public all weekend. Here’s a little more info about the library from Comedy Central’s press release:
Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has been honored with a meticulously curated memorial library commemorating the documents of historical value crafted during his time as leader of the free world. Continuing this hallowed tradition, and seeing no need to wait for him to leave office, The Daily Show will honor our current president with The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, the first of its kind, showcasing our Commander in Chief’s preferred vessel for communicating with the public, his Twitter feed.
The library will feature visual installations and a fully interactive, hands-on experience for hands of all sizes, giving patrons the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to memorialize and celebrate the many “unpresidented” moments of President Trump’s Twitter history.
Select exhibitions housed in the Presidential Twitter Library include:
THE COMMANDER-IN-TWEET:If there’s one thing Trump is known for, it’s tweeting in response to potentially sensitive situations. At the library’s marquee attraction, attendees will have the chance to do the same by composing a totally necessary tweet upon a golden toilet installed in the Oval Office.
SAD!A RETROSPECTIVE: A video retrospective will solemnly display a collection of people, places and things that the President has deemed “SAD!”
TRUMP VS. TRUMP:Here we document President Trump’s unique ability to hold a variety of different opinions on the same subject.
VERIFIED SURVIVORS:Listen to a series of testimonials from a collection of verified survivors, as they recount the trauma of being targeted by Trump on Twitter.
DONALD J. TRUMP: A MAN OF CHARACTERS:In a short docufilm narrated by Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper, the library takes a look at the history of Trump and the 140 character platform he’s revolutionized.
MASTER WORKS FROM THE COLLECTION:Sit back and admire some of Trump’s finest work as a master tweeter.
TWISTORY IN THE MAKING: DONALD J. TRUMP ON TWITTER:Attendees will be able to study the broad arc of Trump’s history in one comprehensive timeline. From his very first tweet about his appearance on Letterman, to his proclamations that Obama was born in Kenya, to his important, early morning screeds as the leader of the free world.
