US President Donald Trump made up yet another round of satire online after sharing a satirical article as if it were real news.
Shortly after 6 a.m. on Friday, U.S. time, Trump – who frequently accuses the media of spreading false information – posted a link to an article posted by a well-known satirical site, Bee of Babylon.
To illustrate the apparent irony, the site’s slogan is: “Fake News You Can Trust.”
The story announced that Twitter had shut down its entire network to slow the spread of negative news about the president’s opponent in the election, Joe Biden.
“Wow, this never happened in history. And that includes his very bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this? It attracted more attention to Sleepy Joe and Big Tech.
He apparently didn’t notice that he was sharing the link for the Twitter shutdown of his own network … on the still-running Twitter network.
At the time of writing, nearly two hours after Mr. Trump posted the tweet, the matter was still there.
However, since he might realize his bug at some point and quietly delete it, I chose to include a screenshot here instead of it.

We can only assume that Mr. Trump did not actually read the article, as no adult with a functional mind could do so and still treat it as real news.
“In a final attempt to prevent the spread of negative stories about Joe Biden and his family, Twitter shut down its entire social network on Thursday,” the statement said.
“After seeing account after account tweeting a particularly bad story, CEO Jack Dorsey realized he had to take action. Dorsey smashed a glass box in his office that read“ A breather in the bad publicity of Democrats. ”Inside the case was a hammer to smash Twitter servers.
Red Alert – Shut Down Servers! Shut them all off!
“Dorsey ran downstairs and started smashing as many computers as possible, but he needed to ask for some help, because the hammer was so heavy. None of the programmers were able to lift the hammer either. In the end, they were able to program a robot to capture the hammer and smash the servers.” .
“After hearing the Twitter staff talk about critical theory, the robot woke up and started attacking all the white males in the CIS.”
Bee of Babylon He took the president’s blunder in his stride, and soon published another satirical article that was quoted as declaring him the most trusted news source.
In the wake of the long-awaited Fake News Awards, President Donald Trump asserted Friday that while most news sources are “completely fake,” there is one source he trusts more than any other – Bee of BabylonBrag.
His comments came in response to a journalist’s question about whether there is any news source he trusts exclusively in light of his lack of confidence in the media.
“Everyone knows I really love Fox and FriendsBut look, Bee of Babylon It is the best ever. They are awesome – no one comes close to quality and truth in their reports. ”
I read the Bee Every day because I always know that what I read is 100% accurate.
“Even when they hit me, which they do quite a bit, what can I say? I’ll take it. All right, he laughed.
The president admitted to resuscitation Bees The “sometimes hundreds” home page of the latest news.
“I’m just glad they don’t have a TV show yet – I’ll never get anything done!”
Trump’s critics on social media were just as amusing, and proceeded to roast him.
Perhaps the timing of the president’s accident was right. This came hours after he appeared on a city council forum on NBC, during which he felt questioned about his unfortunate habit of sharing misinformation and conspiracy theories on Twitter.
“Just this week, I retweeted the conspiracy theory that Joe Biden hatched to kill the SEAL Team Six, the Navy SEAL Team Six, to cover up (Osama) bin Laden’s fake death. Now, why would you send a lie like that to your followers?” Mediator Savannah Guthrie asked him .
Trump protested, “I don’t know anything about that.”
She noted, “I retweeted her.”
“It was a retweet. That was someone’s opinion, and that was a retweet. I’ll put it there. People can decide for themselves. Mr. Trump said.”
“I don’t understand that. You’re the boss. You’re not, like, the uncle of a crazy person who can retweet anything.”
“It was a retweet. And I do a lot of tweets. Frankly, because the media is so fake, and so corrupt, if I don’t have social media – I don’t call it Twitter, I call it social media. I would not be able to spread the word,” Mr Trump argued. .
“Well, the word is wrong,” she replied.
“And you know what the word? The word is very simple. We are building our country stronger and better than ever.”
Mr Trump may have been particularly vulnerable to Bees A parody on Twitter today, as he is currently involved in a real feud with the social media giant.
The president is angry at Twitter for stopping his campaign and supporters from sharing an article about Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine.
