The satirical show has erected a temporary pop-up museum to the presidents offensive, caustic and often contradictory 140-character musings
At the Daily Shows Donald J Trump Presidential Twitter Library there are no books, for reasons that dont require explanation. But there are tweets lots of them.
Conceived of and curated by the Daily Show team, the pop-up museum just around the corner from Trump Tower is arranged like the libraries of presidents past, memorializing Trumps tweets from 2009 onwards.
His greatest hits (covfefe, for instance) appear in gilded frames aside context-providing placards, while other tweets are bracketed by category, pop culture reflections in one corner, admonishments of political rivals and heads of state in another.
Shouldnt the presidential library be at the end of a presidents term? Daily Show host Trevor Noah asked reporters in a makeshift Oval Office adorned with a golden toilet and chenille bathrobe (the letters DT emblazoned on the chest).
Yes, thats true. Unfortunately, we do not know when his term will end. It could be next week, it could be never. So we decided to do it now, he added.
