ometimes you just have to let loose, which is exactly what happened to this Late Show writer when he encountered a photo of Donald Trump that was... less than flattering. What resulted was a hilarious Twitter thread where he couldn’t pick just one joke to make about the photo, so instead he opted to make them all.
Daniel Kibblesmith, a writer for The Late Show, was particularly struck by a photograph of Trump returning from Camp David this week.
He tweeted out the photo, which shows a slumped-shouldered, glassy-eyed Trump wearing a white USA hat and captioned it “This is a real picture of the President of the United States, today.”
Then the writer decided the photo wasn’t enough on it’s own, it needed some commentary for his audience to really understand how it made him feel.
The photo just reminded him of so many things and once his juices started flowing, he couldn’t stop. He had too many jokes for one caption.
His first assessment was it looked like “a five year old drew what a president looks like.”
The slumped shoulders do look like a child just learning to draw who isn’t 100% clear of the appropriate length of necks. And they would definitely include that USA hat because otherwise how could you distinguish him from a president of not-USA?
Next he thought that Trump looked like he was crashing a funeral for the shrimp.
Admittedly we don’t totally get this: is there a Donald Trump shrimp scandal we missed? *Googles furiously* How can you keep up?!
Or maybe he’s just saying that this disheveled Trump would probably show up confused to a low country boil and mourn the ingredients.
Moving on from shrimpscapades, he then tweeted that he “looked like Tommy Wiseau’s dad.”
Tommy Wiseau is the director of the cult-classic film The Room — a movie that is said to be one of the worst movies ever made.
