Donald Trump Has Become Twitter's New Favorite Chew Toy

Mocking Memes #DonaldTrumpTheMovie and #TrumpSacrifices Go Viral

By Published on .

Late Monday night, #DonaldTrumpTheMovie became a top 10 trending topic on Twitter, as the Twittersphere piled on the Republican presidential candidate into the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

The #DonaldTrumpTheMovie meme comes in the wake of the weekend's explosion of #TrumpSacrifices on Twitter, another top 10 Twitter trending topic that took on Trump's statement that "I think I've made a lot of sacrifices" amidst his ongoing feud with Khizr Kahn, the father of a fallen soldier who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week, saying that Trump had "sacrificed nothing" for his country.

Why is Donald Trump inspiring so much pro bono work from Twitter wits, leaving his opponent Hillary Clinton feeling possibly left out?

Well, for starters, he's Donald Trump -- he effortlessly inspires and even sometimes seems to welcome mockery. And, of course, it helps that Trump is himself a noted Twitter pugilist.

Plus, apparently he eats KFC on his private jet with silverware, per this 10:22 p.m. photo tweeted from his @realDonaldTrump account last night:

There's a meme or a Photoshop Battle waiting to happen right there. Hey Twittersphere! Get on it!
