Twitter Imagines Donald Trump as a Film Critic With #TrumpExplainsMoviePlots

The Twitter-verse got very creative overnight with the trending hashtag #TrumpExplainsMoviePlots, where users wittily conjured up the way Donald Trump would describe a movie plot.

One tweet, takes a direct hit to Trump’s comments about Fox News commentator Megyn Kelly during a CNN interview, where he said:

“She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions,” said Trump. “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion, she was off base.” He later claimed that “wherever” meant Kelly’s nose.

The tweet poked fun at this line of reasoning: “A 10 gets killed in motel by loser. Blood coming of her whatever. Not a Trump hotel, folks.”

But that’s just one example. “Little Frodo, very small guy, tries to destroy a ring, it takes forever, total loser. I’d do it quicker, believe me,” tweeted former “90210” star Trevor Donovan.


Film writer Scott Weinberg tweeted how Trump would describe “Citizen Kane”: “Publisher of a failing newspaper misses his sled! I have the greatest sleds, sleighs, and toboggans.”

“Big shark. Biggest shark you ever saw. I saw it, folks. Huge. Police chief. Great guy, friend of mine. He KILLED it,” tweeted Scott Dooley referencing “Jaws.”

B.J. Novak tweeted about “The Lion King,” saying, “Scar – strong leader, respected. Jungle going great. Now? A mess!”

And what would this trending hashtag be if users hadn’t capitalized on the famous “Fight Club” rules? “I really shouldn’t talk about. I shouldn’t. I CAN’T. But really folks, I can’t. Ok? Ok. It’s a fight club,” tweeted one user.
