The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library: What You Missed

Donald J Trump Presidential Twitter Library

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.

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.

THE PAINTING: Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze’s famous 1851 painting of Washington Crossing the Delaware was re-imagined with Donald twittering accompanied by his cohorts:

The TRUMP NICKNAME GENERATOR spat out a derogatory name for you, which many visitors wrote on their own name tags.

THE WORLD MAP: Each flag represents a country Trump has insulted in a tweet. The numbers on the flags represent the number of tweets and match the tweets printed along the borders of the map.

There was also a MAGA-NETIC Wall whose words could be rearranged by visitors:

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.
