Sometimes 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.
This is a real picture of the President of the United States, today. https://t.co/l6fK5I2Cwa— Daniel Kibblesmith (@Daniel Kibblesmith)1513554384.0
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."

Next he thought that Trump looked like he was crashing a funeral for the shrimp.

Moving on from shrimpscapades, he then tweeted that he “looked like Tommy Wiseau’s dad."

Wiseau has a peculiar look and is often spotted sporting jackets that make his shoulders appear several inches larger than you would expect the width of his, or any normal human’s, shoulders to be.

His next tweet was an imagined conversation between Trump and the ticket seller at a local movie theater.

He also thought Trump looked like maybe he had no idea where he was.
He looks like he wandered off five hours ago and they just found him with a flashlight https://t.co/Y8tlQ6tuSw— Daniel Kibblesmith (@Daniel Kibblesmith)1513554963.0
Some people in Kibblesmith’s Twitter thread even pointed out that Trump’s photo reminded them of relatives with dementia or Alzheimer's.

But, back to the lighter side, he then tweeted that it looked like Trump was holding up the line at a Las Vegas Starbucks.

Raise your hand if you ever had to wear old person make-up in a school production of Oklahoma.
He looks like a kid in age make-up in a school play magically became old for real. https://t.co/FDRVOB71T5— Daniel Kibblesmith (@Daniel Kibblesmith)1513556177.0
Then Kibblesmith got kind of real and pointed out that actually Trump looks like what he is: someone being investigated for treason.
Honestly, he looks exactly like a guy being investigated for treason. https://t.co/XpqzHZJpVD— Daniel Kibblesmith (@Daniel Kibblesmith)1513556647.0
That hat definitely says “Look! I love America enough to wear a hat about it."

A follower replied with a photo of Obama looking a little bit more pulled together during his presidency.And really wearing those shades, too.
Other people had their own “he looks like" jokes to add to Kibblesmith’s line up.
Some joked that Trump looked like he was involved in a reverse Dorian Grey situation.

Other people thought his look reminded them of something else, like the shrunken headed man from Beetlejuice.
There was concern for Trump’s headware, as well.

It was definitely not a great look for Trump, but at least he still looks better than his figure in the Hall of Presidents.

Some people weren’t happy with Kibblesmith’s thread, but he took it in stride.
