On Saturday, president Trump stopped in Hawaii on the way to his 12 day trip to Asia to relax at one of his Trump-branded hotels. However, rather than being welcomed by a chorus of eager minions emblazoned with Trump-branded clothing and MAGA hats, the president was trolled in the most delightful way.
A group of over 200 anti-Trump protesters gathered to greet the president, and a clever handful of them carried signs that said "Welcome to Kenya" and other variations of that sentiment. This was of course, in reference to the Obama birther conspiracy theories that Trump helped spread for years even up until his campaign trail. While outlandish and racist, the conspiracy theory somehow normalized enough that the White House released Obama's birth certificate to the public, proving once and for all that he was born in Hawaii.
Given the context, Hawaii's choice trolling of Trump was top-shelf. And the Obama references surely (and hopefully) would make the former president proud.
At least, we can hope that it made Obama break into a wink and smirk.
The anti-Trump crowd far outnumbered the handful of pro-Trump protesters, which only added to the strength of the trolling.
Even beyond the Kenya jokes, the heavy referencing of Obama definitely plays on one of Trump's emotional weaknesses.
The jury is out on whether or not Trump is feeling Obama's lush birthplace. One thing is for sure, the people of "Kenya" are definitely not feeling him.
