In March of this year, it was announced that Comedy Central’s The Daily Show would be presenting The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library Honoring The 45TH President of the United States. They made good on their word and the event took place this past Father’s Day Weekend, opening Friday June 16 and closing on Sunday 18th. The temporary library was located in New York City at 3 West 57th Street near Fifth Avenue, just a stone’s throw from Trump Tower. Admission was free and open to the public between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. If you couldn’t make it, we’ve got lots of great photos for you.

The temporary installation was promoted online and on Comedy Central by The Daily Show host Trevor Noah for the past few weeks.
Word got out and the lines were at least two hours long during the weekend to visit the Trump Twitter Library. Based on numerous comments on Twitter and Instagram, everyone felt the exhibition was worth the wait.
The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library is the first of its kind. Showcasing our Commander in Chief’s preferred vessel for communicating with the public, his Twitter feed, the venue was filled with imaginative and interactive experiences. Visitors got a one-in-a-lifetime chance for some truly fun photo-ops.
Select exhibitions housed in the Presidential Twitter Library included the following:
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 had the chance to do the same by composing a totally necessary tweet upon a golden toilet installed in the Oval Office. And many did.
TRUMP VS. TRUMP: Displays of President Trump’s unique ability to hold a variety of different opinions on the same subject.
DONALD J. TRUMP: A MAN OF CHARACTERS: Desi Lydic revisits Donald Trump’s first tweet and lauds the president’s innovative way around Twitter’s restrictive character limit.
TWISTORY IN THE MAKING: DONALD J. TRUMP ON TWITTER: Attendees were 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.
The the fondant-covered ELECTION CAKE, which was mocked for being an exact copy of the cake at Barack Obama’s 2013 inaugural festivities and which Trump and Vice President Mike Pence cut bride-and-groom style at the inaugural ball, was there too, in styrofoam.
