Ever heard the saying “like attracts like” before? Well it’s true, and nowhere is there more proof of this than at this year’s Republican National Convention as the strange attracted the strange. Since running for office, Trump and his wife have been nothing short of bizarre. So it was only natural to see the trolls of the world show up in droves at the RNC to meet, and troll them. If you thought trolling was just for the Internet, wait until you see what showed up…
“Rickroll’ing” Melania’s Speech
Obviously Melania had someone else write part of her speech. The part she didn’t steal from Michelle Obama of course. But whomever snuck in the line “Never gonna give you up, [He’s] never gonna let you down” from Rick Astley’s 80’s pop song was an absolute troll genius.
Making Memes Great Again
Fan of the “Making America Great Again” slogan are you? Not this chap. He wants Trump to “Make memes great again” as his billboard says, and on the opposite side “Shrek Is Love Shrek Is Life”. If you don’t know what that means, you’ll have to YouTube it – if you dare.
Remember Harambe the gorilla that was shot back in May when that 3-year-old fell into his enclosure? Remember how everyone online was distraught about it and then, as the Internet always does, makes a big joke out of it? Yes, that’s what this is all about.
So Alex Jones was doing an anti-illuminati rally when Adult Swim’s Eric Andre shows up and starts making a commotion in front of the stage. Alex invited him up (stupidly), at which point Eric starts saying crazy things like “I’m not on The Daily Show, I’m on MySpace.”
I don’t know who was controlling the main ticker, but they clearly don’t know who @RealDenaldTrump is. If you don’t know, it’s a Trump parody account on Twitter, which just the other week tweeted that the military coup in Turkey was just the people “taking their country back.”
Did you catch the South Dakota Delegate tallying up the votes for Trump on live TV? Did you also catch the guy behind her facepalming himself when she did? Classic.
Third Eye Blind
So apparently Third Eye Blind was booked to play at the convention, when, well, this happened…
Believe it or not, Hillary’s got some troll in her too. She actually paid for some cool (well, not that cool), anti-Trump Snapchat filters that could be downloaded in Cleveland all that week.
Along side Eric Andre, Tim Heidecker was also there stirring the pot amongst the crowd. His contribution was mostly reporting bombing everyone screaming “Senator!” at the camera.
Like we said in the beginning, like attracts like. So it’s no surprise that Trump, whom if you’ve seen his tweets over the past 12 months, is the biggest troll of all and would attract others just like him. #GoodNightBeWellAndDontVote4Trump
