From Brian Eno to Death Grips, This Twitter Parody Account Imagines Donald Trump's Album Reviews

Naturally, he'd rank records from one to five American flag emojis.

Despite there being no shortage of parody accounts dedicated to America's highest elected serial tweeter, none of them have yet to answer the really tough questions like "What does President Donald Trump think of Brian Eno's Here Come the Warm Jets?," or "Does he prefer Death Grips' earlier or more recent work?". Until now that is.

Similar to the now-defunct cinema-focussed @ArtHouseTrump, Twitter user @DJTMusicReviews offers up bite-sized album reviews in the voice of the commander-in-chief, using a one ("sad!") to five ("tremendous!") US flag emoji rating system. As you would expect, he prefers American-made LPs to more global fare.

While accounts like this one are arguably the lowest denomination of comedy, it's an entertaining temporary distraction from the non-stop cavalcade of insane news coming out of the White House these days.

Check out some of the best ones below and read our recent feature on how Trump's presidency affects international touring musicians.
