The Daily Show Actually Gave Trump Tweets Their Own Library

Trevor Noah and The Daily Show celebrated the launch of The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library over the weekend, a pop-up exhibit and archive of POTUS's tweets. It opened to the public in a space down the block from Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan, mimicking the design and arrangement of a formal art exhibition. Blown-up cutouts of some of The Donald's most memorable Twitter moments were hung in gilded frames along the walls, while other attractions included a Trump nickname generator and a live feed of his Twitter page. In the entryway, new visitors were greeted by a sculpture of tiny orange hands cradling a smartphone, as well as a highly secure vault containing the President's tax returns. Perhaps the most exorbitant feature in the library, however, was a mock oval office in a small alcove in the exhibition space. Guests were given the opportunity to send a tweet of their own from a golden toilet in front of the resolute desk while wearing a hotel robe and a Trump wig. Although the show was only open for a few days, Deadline writes that long lines to get in the show prompted the library to extend its visiting hours to accommodate more guests.
