Perhaps you’ve heard by now that Donald Trump spent part of his weekend cowering in the White House bunker as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the executive mansion.
The bunker was designed for extreme emergencies, like terrorist attacks and nuclear bombs, but Trump decided to use it to hide from people congregating outside on his front lawn after he fired off a string of racist tweets in response to the nation’s reaction to the murder of George Floyd.
After coming up from the bunker, Trump held a video conference call with governors around the country, during which he called them all “weak” in their responses to the demonstrations happening in their states, and said they need to “dominate” and “take back your streets.”
“You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years, and you’ll never see this stuff again,” Trump purportedly said.
When asked for comment about Trump hiding in a bunker, White House spokesman Judd Deere said, “The White House does not comment on security protocols and decisions.”
But Twitter sure has a lot to say about the matter. They’ve even created a special hashtag for him… #BunkerBoy!
And now, the tweets…
“I wish the Governors would be tougher!”

93 years ago Fred Trump was arrested at a KKK riot. Today, his son wakes up in the presidential bunker because of nationwide anti-racist riots. As MLK said, “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it also might be a delerious fractal bending in many directions at once.” pic.twitter.com/zKkDAr6ogG

Shall we continue?
Trump says he would have stormed into school to stop the gunman during a mass shooting even without a gun. But he’s hiding in his bunker from his citizens during a protest even though they’re unarmed.
