    I'm still trying to make sense of some of the claims on his 1040, but most of it looks legit. I'm still not sure which part the Dems are upset about…

    Did you fill this out yourself? It looks like an 8 year old filled it out.

    It would have been funnier to use an old 2005 form.

    Nah I think its funnier to make it look like it was written by someone with the same maturity as the president.

    Ugh. Keep it up. The media is over saturated with Trump hate. When Trump actually does something deserving of this anger the general population will be deaf to it.

    I don't have to look at the media. His petulant twitter (let alone everything else) is enough. The fact that he feels the compulsion to tweet half what he does demonstrates his maturity level.

    I've never had a Twitter account, it seems juvenile to me. The fact that our President is still using Twitter is still upsetting to me. It's just dumb.

    Half of what he does? Tweeting seems to be all he does.

    He needs to sit down and focus on the job.

    You have taken the first step in admitting there is a problem. If the fact that he uses Twitter bothers you, you really should look at what he's saying on Twitter. That is the real issue.

    If you think his use of Twitter is juvenile, then perhaps the answer to this question should make more sense:

    Are you suggesting that this is ACTUALLY a form that Trump filled out himself?

    Maybe you are misunderstanding the concept of this thread. Are you aware of the abstract idea called "humor"?

    Pretty sure I read on INFOWars this is a legit document. It was linked right next to a shoe advertisement.

    I am aware of this concept. For years I have been operating under the assumption that humor is supposed to be funny. Making fun of Trump isn't automatically funny. SNL is making this mistake every week. There have been some very funny and scathing comments about Trump. There have been far more unfunny comments and attacks on Trump.

    This joke isn't funny or clever. It's not humor.

    So true. My issue is also specifically how he tweets. It truly reads like he HAS to personally have the last say on anything - 8 year old logic. Twitter can be used for good, but that is now something Trump knows about.

    I find it amusing. I find satire quite funny. Each to their own I guess.

    Are you joking? Trump has already done plenty deserving of all this anger.

    This was great. I especially laughed at Tiffany being only an acquaintance because sometimes it seems that way compared to the rest of his children.

    Hmmm. I don't remember this "over saturated" argument coming up with all the hate directed at Obama for eight long years.

    Worse, Donald Trump himself once said that it was unpresidential and that he would not do it after elected. I suspect that was just a joke as I think he said it at a rally. Still, in multiple interviews he did say he would be different and maybe not use Twitter much or even at all even after being elected. He said that he would be restrained. He said that tone mattered. I haven't seen a difference from him really.
