‘Daily Show’ Details Trump Presidential Twitter Library
The Daily Show will archive a selection of President Donald Trump’s social media blasts in the Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, The Associated Press reports. The free pop-up will run June 16th through 18th and will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 3 West 57th Street in New York City – around the corner from Trump Tower.
Daily Show host Trevor Noah teased the Trump Presidential Twitter Library earlier this month and officially announced it Monday. The pop-up will feature videos, interactive exhibits and organize Trump’s myriad 140-character missives into various exhibits such as “SAD! A Retrospective” and “The Commander-In-Tweet.” The Library will also highlight Trump’s countless contradictory statements and give “verified survivors” the chance to recall what it was like being on the receiving end of a Trump Twitter screed.
Prior to detailing the Trump Presidential Twitter Library, Noah discussed whether Trump’s tweets should be considered official statements. Noah noted the real world impact Trump’s tweets have had, such as undercutting his own travel ban and prompting former FBI director James Comey to share memos of his conversations with the President.
“Donald Trump’s tweets are official presidential statements,” Noah said. “That’s why last week the U.S. military bombed ‘Covfefe,’ which is actually a small town in Somalia. We thought it was a joke.”
