Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for good satire. The closer you get to the truth while still being absurd, the better. As such, the man known as Carpe Donktum, most popularly known as President Donald Trump’s favorite meme maker, tweeted out what might be the best Twitter thread of the year, satirizing how the media reacts to anything Trump does.

Normally, I wouldn’t dedicate an entire article to something like this, but the satire is so well done and true to life that I felt it really sums up the kind of political/media landscape we live in.

To start, Donktum begins with a hypothetical situation. Let’s say trump tweets out a horse.

A simple picture of a beautiful looking black horse mid gallop. Usually, when it comes to Trump, the situations start as simple as that. However, as we all know, it’s never that simple. Everything Trump does suddenly becomes the worst thing anyone has ever seen. Twitter, whether it be pro or anti-Trump immediately reacts. Media and various talking heads begin posting takes so hot that you have to wear mittens to handle them.

And after all that races through the news cycle, we finally get back to Trump who reveals, as usual, that the entire situation was completely overblown, and he just liked how the horse looked.

The reason I love satire so much is that it really makes you sit back and reflect on reality. When you pull back on the whole situation regarding how we react to anything Trump does, it does look really silly. I’m not trying to sound hyperbolic when I say this, but I’m pretty sure no one man has ever had so much power over so many people. No emperor has ever had the reach that Trump does, and no amount of people have ever had this much access to the words of a leader.

Mix in the fact that humanity is just now learning how to deal with the fact that it’s never been so close together while never being so far apart thanks to social media, and you have what really equates to pure insanity.

In any case, well done Donktum. This is a masterpiece of a thread.
